I just finished "The Time Traveler's Wife" and liked it better than I thought I would. The last 50 pages or so were kind of cheesy, but overall it was interesting.

'Love To Love You Bradys'. It's about the short-lived 'Brady Bunch Variety Hour' show that was on in the 70's. Three of the Bradys guest-starred on Donny and Marie, and the ratings were so high someone got the 'bright' idea of putting the Bradys in their own variety show.(Eve Plumb, who played Jan, wisely declined to be in it.) This show was on the air 3 years after The Brady Bunch was cancelled! (Featuring a "fake" Jan.)
There are numerous youtube videos from this show. Check them out-you won't believe how bad it was!

I am reading the Potato Peel Pie Society book, also for a book group. I'm in for about 1/4 of the book so far, and I am not drawn to it. Am I missing something? Might there be interesting developments to come as I proceed?

Am deep into another Greg Iles book--Turning Angel--it is gripping-- a page-turner--all those cliches---first chapter a little slow but then wow! Pretty explicit so if that is a problem for you, be warned. But it isn't gratuitous --rather it develops probing social questions and builds characterization.

Echo in the Bone by Diana Gabaldon. Book #7 in her Outlander series. It's been a long four years since the last book! (And will be a long four years until the next.)

Tess Gerritsen "The Sinner"
An easy read and a nice page turner.

However, I finished Paolo Coelho's "Veronika decides to die" and still don't know what to make of it. It was easy to read and had quite a nice ending but I'm still not for that kind of psychological meaning lol

Thanks for writing this down here. I need to get volume #7 of the Outlander series. Anyhoo', I do need to reread the others before, just for the pleasure of it.
