You might enjoy the St. Germain books. They are written by Chelsea Quinn Yarbro. She writes a continuing saga of St. Germain, who is a vampire. Each book is during a different era. The reader goes through ancient Greece, Rome, olde English, British and American. Same character. There is some degree of romance but not much. St. Germain is such an interesting guy. I read the books back in the 70s.

Just finished my first Vonnegut, The Sirens of Titan. Not sure yet what I think of it...reminded me alot of Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy...but with a story-line.

I have been listening to The Hour I First Believed, and I am REALLY liking it! But it is taking me forever! It is long, and occassionally there have been some topics which prevent me from listening if my kids are home. Almost done! I really like Wally Lamb.

Tonight I started reading Diary by Chuck Palahniuk. I can't find anything else on hand to read. Not sure if I'll continue it once I find something.

I just started "Snow Flower and the Secret Fan" and I really like it so far. It's for a feminist book club so there is going to be A LOT to discuss!

I'm about a hundred-fifty pages short of finishing Lonesome Dove and I am having a hard time putting it down. Ordinarily, I'm not someone to read Westerns but I promised my boss I'd read it after he told me it's a book that is simply a must read. Though it's not really a literary novel, the story flows so well and the characters seem to absolutely come to life in such a staggering way that you feel like you can connect with them on every level. It really is an excellent book thus far.

I've recently ordered Dostoyevsky's The Brothers Karamazov and Joseph Heller's Catch-22 so those are up next on my "to read" list.

Still reading 'The Forest' by Edward Rutherfurd. I started this one so long ago, I don't even remember when I started it! I know I have been reading it for over two weeks now. It's interesting and I think one of the reasons I've taken so long on it is to 'savor' the story. (Actually more like stories - each chapter covers a separate time in the life of this forest, over nine centuries.) And I don't want to miss anything by reading too fast. Have about a hundred pages to go. (599 total)
