Re: What are you reading?

Having only read good things about the Rendezvous With Rama-sequels (on this site) and knowing that that first novel is spectacular, I recently purchased an omnibus-version containing the first four novels.
Finished it last night and am never going to read it again! Why didn't anyone tell me that the sequels were fantasy and drama, NOT SciFi?

Anyway... I'll be starting my first Agatha Christie tonight
That is: I think it's my first.

^^ Actually, you must have misunderstood. The sequels are generally not well regarded.

Which is why I have begun looking more specifically into whom any recommendations actually come from

Re: What are you reading?

Just started rereading a comprehensive book and guide on beagles. I've had my beagle for several years now but there's always something fresh and new you can learn about the breed no matter how long you've owned one of them.

I'm reading almost exclusively historical fiction. I just finished Anne O' Brien's the King's Concubine. Now I'm reading Four Sisters, all Queens.

Re: What are you reading?

Reading Heart of the Game which is true life story of perennial minor leaguer Mike Coolbaugh, who was coaching 1st base for AA Tulsa Drillers in 2007 and was hit in the neck by a foul ball and killed almost instantly. The Drillers are affiliates of the Colorado Rockies, and this was the year that the Rockies went to the World Series, and to a man, they voted a full World Series bonus share to Coolbaugh's family. This is an extremely well written book.

Thanks! It may not make the book any more intelligble to me but now I've got that song stuck in my head!
Thinking of the song made me wonder if it would be better as an audio book - my bookstore doesn't have it - time to look to amazon or ebay . . .
