I've got three copies of "The Half-Blood Prince" on order from Amazon UK. I got our kids the British set for their birthdays this year, and pre-ordered the new one.

I'm also going to check out the Janet Evanovich "Stephanie Plum" books, and Patricia Cornwell "Kay Scarpetta" books.

Lil Freeper just mentioned Janet Evanovich's books this morning in the Hobbit Hole. I'm going to check one or two out for our trip to Japan in July.

The one book I read of hers was a disappointment. It was supposed to be a mystery, yet she brought in a brand new character near the end to be the murderer. That's cheating!

I don't even know the series you are talking about, but that's totally cheating. I would be so mad!

You are supposed to love her for other reasons, I guess.

Really ? What's his handle ? Loved his books and wouldn't mind sending god words on to him directly.

I love Dick Francis. In fact, I just went to the bookstore to find another that I might not have read. He is just a terrific writer.

Janet Evanovich's books are a riot. Like most series, they lose their appeal after a number of books, but she is just hilarious, and the story line really holds your interest.

John Adams was great. I never fail to be amazed at just how much these men sacrificed or just how slim was the victory.

Happy Reading!

I can't remember his screen name. It was sort of complicated--a mixture of letters and numbers, I think. I can search through my freepmail, because I had some back-and-forth with him at one point. Maybe there's another way to find out--if he has a website.

"The Life and Religion of Mohammed" the prophet of arabia by Rev. J.L. Menezes. Originally published in 1912. Reissued by Roman Catholic Books.

An amazing account considering the time it was written. Offers a lot of history about Mohammed that has been "sanitized" by historians. I'm learning a lot about how the cult of Mohammed was started and how it was spread. Something I didn't realize is that the "rock" was there and worshiped by pagan religions long long before Mohammed's time. He co-opted the rock for himself.

I've also read Appalachia, which is a trilogy by three authoresses. Clean fiction.

Found it. Had to go back to 2001. A real trip down the lane. I'll freepmail him and see if it's OK to share his screen name with you. He made it public at one point but better to check.

I bought it today at Sam's Club - that one and "The Truth about Hillary" by Edwared Klein. Thanks for the heads up; I am not often on the ball with the release dates.

I was fortunate enough to live just south of Boston years ago and visit the Quincy Plantation, the two homesteads in Quincy that sit side by side and other points of history. Having seen the houses - the relating in the book have real meaning. John Adams was the real hero of our independence. IMHO.

Yeah, I like the way she names them, in numerical order.

I love Dick Francis.

Our daughter was doing a writing class at the public library in N. Providence. On the second visit, I disovered that on the 'Sale' racks, they had a bunch of hardback Dick Francis novels. I ended up buying 12 of them for $1 each! WooHoo! I love them!

Chapter 11's name is explained on p. 512 and comes from the fact that he will run the hot dog company into the ground five years after their father's death.

I'd like to know how everyone rated their summer books.


I'm reading "Leeway Cottage" by Beth Gutcheon.

I read the following books this summer & I would recommend them all. Gulag was a little long & fact-filled, but very informational.

Washington's Crossing - David Hackett Fischer
Gulag - Anne Applebaum
Love and Hate in Jamestown - David Price

I just ordered the Mother Angelica book & can't wait for it to arrive.
