Re: What are you reading?

In the last few days I have finished

The Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman - I loved it.
Dewey, The Library Cat by Vicki Myron. Enjoyable but a little repetitive at times.

Still reading three of the books I mentioned earlier (Death by Black Hole, Stiff, and Left Hand)

I just started "Doctor Sleep" by Steven King. It is too early for me to form an opinion about it, but I have high hopes.

Re: What are you reading?

Have we all stopped reading or just posting about what we read?

Since I last posted I have finished reading the Sherlock Holmes canon by finishing off The Casebook of Sherlock Holmes. From now on it will be Sherlock patishes for me.

Also read Fragile Things by Neil Gaiman. I like about half of the short stories in this collection.

And today i finished Seven Little Australians by Ethel Turner.

I last read this book as a teenager around 40 years ago after I had watched the wonderful mini-series the aired on Australian TV in 1973.

I was very pleased to find a DVD copy of the mini-series on Amazon last year and bough it straight away. When it arrived I was disappointed to discover that this US copy of the min-series does not include the last two episodes of the series (which covers events in the last three chapters in the book)

The events of the last three chapters are very sad as a terrible tragedy does occur so maybe the American powers-to-be deemed it too upsetting for children to watch (?).

^^ I hadn't heard about that. My condolences, trekkie. I'm kind of in the same boat. I've been in kind of a funk since my Uncle Ken died.

Oh, dear, I didn't know either. My sympathy, trekkiedane.

As for reading, I just finished a history of the Russian revolution.

I just finished Day of the Triffids! It was a welcome relief from trying to slog through the Wheel of Time books - had to give up on those. Now I'm on The Indifferent Stars Above.

My condolences for your loss. I understand how it is, I had trouble coping when my Dad died.

Re-reading "The Big Sleep" by Raymond Chandler to get myself ready for the first reading of the rest of his Philip Marlowe series.

Re: What are you reading?

Reading The Storm by Clive Cussler, which I will likely finish on the plane tomorrow on my business trip. I need to find something else for the rest of the trip, and nothing on my shelf right now is speaking to me.

Re: What are you reading?

I'm nearly done with the second Rise and Fall of Khan Noonien Singh/Eugenics Wars book, then it's on to Why Grizzly Bears Should Wear Underpants by The Oatmeal, which my husband bought for me (he also bought candy, I'm not sure yet what he's done wrong but I'll find out). I do need to get crocheting all the Christmas gifts I need, so maybe I'll just be reading patterns for a while.
