I'm rereading the Outlander series now that the TV show has started. I'm on the second book right now.

finally finished that awful 'into the blue' by robert goddard. and then found out i'm in the 1% of critics and readers who hated it. and that there was a mid-90s miniseries of it. oh well...

next 4 on the nightstand are:

11 days in december: christmas at the bulge, 1944 (because i love love love me some european ww2 history)

made in hanford: the bomb that changed the world (again, ww2 history, plus it's close to home)

conversations with god: an uncommon dialogue, books 1 & 2 (and didn't know it was up to 9 books in the series, tho just the first 3 are considered the big reads. guess i have to get #3 from the library when i've caught up)

and so many more after that, just waiting...

Another random book suggested by my local librarian...Balzac and the Little Chinese Seamstress. It was an interesting book, historical in nature, short and easy to read.
This is the translation I read

I also picked up The Reliable Wife by Goolrick at our library paperback exchange. It was a little different but I really enjoyed reading it.

I'm reading one of the Maisie Dobbs mysteries. Really like this character and the period-England between the wars.
