I am just starting to read Michael Hardwick's "The Revenge Of The Hound". It says on the back cover that it is an energetic, atmospheric semi-sequel to "The Hound Of The Baskervilles".

I just finished Pat Conroy's South of Broad - have read nearly all his books.

An Echo in the Bone - Diana Gabaldon. I'm trying to savor and not read it too quickly.

"A Hope and a Future," by Katrina A. Wampler. Katrina has been my friend Christi's friend for years. I have met her a couple times, and she is a friend of mine on Facebook--she is a real sweetie. This was her first novel, and so far it is good.

I just finished reading Wicked and I immediately started reading The Lost Symbol by Dan Brown.

Now that I am done with Wicked I want to re-watch The Wizard Of Oz. I will see it in a whole new light this time around.

Yes you will! I said the same thing after we saw the show on Broadway. It will change how you see it, but I don't think it will mess it up. I loved the exchange between Elphaba and Dorothy at the end of Wicked (the book--they didn't talk to each other in the show).

I picked up Dan Brown's latest at the library, along with 4 other books, and then realized I'm going out of town in a week for two weeks. Even I, an insomniac who spends my extra hours reading (well, and doing laundry) can't read all these books in one week, and I know the blockbuster will be in high demand (I pretty much caught it as it arrived at our library) cannot absorb this in a day or two. Oh, deary me, what shall I do.

Now I'm finishing up a book of Nero Wolf mysteries. To my ladies I'm reading Hotel Pastis.

I picked up two paperbacks at Wal-Mart of mysteries I hope I haven't read. I don't much like to buy books there because, well, I'm not much into inspirational, religion-oriented books and romances, which seems to be par for the course at ours. But I picked up a Kellerman and a Cornwell that I don't think I've read before for on the road reading.

That is what I just finished reading. In typical Dan Brown fashion it is a quick read that is hard to put down, but of all his books I thought this was the worst. I did enjoy it though.

Murder In Ordinary Time by Sister Carol Anne O'Marie. I love all of her books.
