Bearsstar, be sure that you are signed in to your account so that it registers who you are. Then, try copying and pasting the mailbox address and message subject line to be sure that all of the characters are right. I do that every time now so I don't mistype, then just fill in my information and send. If this doesn't work, try sending Paul a PM.

In between I have a few books to review and some Viking romances just for fun!! 

 

 

 

 


 

I read Pillars of Earth a few years back.  It is a long book, but worth it.  I especially enjoy historical fiction.   I think I will try to get through the next Bermard Cornwell series Lords of the North.  I have read Last Kingdom and Pale Horseman.  I have the Sword Song but don't think I can get through both books before August.

I've just started AMERICA AMERICA by Ethan Canin so I don't know if I favor it or not.  But I did find a line interesting:  "... liked his enemies best because he never had to doubt their sincerity."  Unique philosophy.:smileywink:

Read PILLARS OF THE EARTH some time ago.  Though it is a long read, I really enjoyed it.  Many of the titles mentioned so far in community room sound really good.  I need more time to read!

Anna_Louise, I've read the first two in the Inkheart trilogy and am impatiently waiting for Inkdeath to be published in a paperback cover like the first two... I'm very OCD and need to have my series have the same jacket cover. I enjoyed the first two books so far though I wish I could read them in German to see how Funke originally meant the story to be told.

I am reading THE GINGER TREE for my church book club; TELL ME WHERE IT HURTS for my zoo book club; THE LAST LECTURE for my online book club; and THE CELLIST OF SARAJEVO and A WRINKLE IN TIME too.  Looks like it will be August before we start discussion of UNDER THIS UNBROKEN SKY - great title!

Re: Community Room

Since finishing Of Bees and Mist, I have read The Sister by Poppy Adams, since that was a FL choice before I came on board at FL. I really enjoyed that one too.

 

I have watched some DVD's of the books that are Erick Setiawan's favorite reads - Wide Sargasso Sea (Jean Rhys) and Handful of Dust (Evelyn Waugh) and tonight I watched Grapes of Wrath. All very interesting!

 

I am currently reading East of the Sun and The Haunting of Hill House (both on the B&N July reading lists).

 

Tonight my husband and I were listening to The Shadow of the Wind in the car on the way down to our second home between Ocean City and Assateague, MD. We are really enjoying it and can't wait until the ride home to hear more.

 

In my TBR pile I currently have: Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie and The Story Sisters.

 

I think I have enough to keep me occupied until the end of July.

What I'm reading now.

I'm just starting Out Stealing Horses, and then I'll move on to Time Traveler's Wife (the movie comes out next month and I've not read the book yet, but have a date with a friend to see the film - I have to read the book before seeing the movie!).

 

I'll be at the cottage the first few weeks of August (with computer access, so I'll still be able to participate, thank goodness), and I'll be reading my yearly Gabaldon novel.  I'm on book 4 - at this rate I'll never catch up.

 

Cheers,

Amanda
