Finished 'The Doomsday Book' by Connie Willis last night and immediately started re-reading 'Agincourt' by Bernard Cornwell. I read this one last year and really enjoyed it. I figure I can finish it before I start 'The Plague Tales' by Anne Benson.

Doomsday was very very good and I know Agincourt is phenomenal as well. Waiting for that one to be made into the movie now but but worried that they will butcher it (a la 'I Am Legend').

"The Raven and the Nightingale" by Joanne Dobson. (Karen Pelletier mystery)

Good one. I started it last night and I think I'll finish it today. I've read 3 of Dobson's books in the last 3 days, I just can't stop reading for some reason

"Dragon" by Clive Cussler... fun stuff! Japan is planning to send the world into the dark ages with a strategic electro-magnetic burst caused by precision nuke detonations. Only Dirk Pitt can save the day!

Right now "On Writing" by Stephen King, semi autobiographical and very interesting so far. Prior to that I was on a scifi anthologies kick for a few weeks.

I recently read "Without a Word," by Carol Lea Benjamin and loved it, so I went back to the library and checked out the first book in the series, "This Dog for Hire." Couldn't even get through it -- so disappointing .....

Currently I'm in the last couple chapters of "Dying Flames," by Robert Barnard. It's decent, but probably not a book I'd take the time to recommend to anyone. Next on the nightstand is "The Hunted" by Wayne Barcomb -- don't know anything about the author.

But before I start that one, I'm embarassed to admit that I'm going to breeze my way through "Finger Lickin' Fifteen" by Janet Evanovich. Pure mind candy.

Right now, I am reading Swiss Family Robinson on my Kindle. Holy cow, that author must have been a holy roller. There is an entire 8 pages just devoted to telling a biblical story! Enjoying it otherwise.
