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.

I like the Maisie Dobbs series, too. The author, Jacqueline Winspear, has a new stand alone apparently about World War I.

Back on Murder (A Roland March Mystery Book #1) by J. Mark Berterand
This book is actually keeping my interest. It's about a detective in Houston who basically crashed his career and is trying to get back on track but there's something more going on and I can hardly wait to find out what it is. Have I guessed right? I got it as a free Kindle d/l. Oftentimes free d/l books are almost worth the price. This one I'm really enjoying. I'm not constantly wanting a red pencil to correct typos and grammar errors that make me .

(I've looked at this and made a couple corrections before posting. Find the ones I missed and we can together.

Happy Autumn! I started "All the Light we Cannot See" by Anthony Doerr this morning. I love the way the words paint pictures in my mind. Excellent so far!

I just got Outlander on my Kindle. There was a list of holds a mile long. I forgot I'd put a hold on it! I think I'll start reading it tonight.

I just finished the 8th book in the Outlander series. I read a lot. This was the second reading of the series and I'm watching the show on TV, too. Can you tell I like it?

On my Kindle though I'm rereading "Why We Get Fat: And What To Do About It by Gary Taubes. Needed a refresher.
