Book Worm

I am sorry! It has been awhile since I have blogged, almost a week.

We had a great time during Dad and Corinne's visit. They left Friday morning and were headed back to California with a detour to visit a cousin of Corinne's. They had a good time and so did we. We spent most of the time around here just talking and enjoying the company.

Remember the trip dad and I took to the used bookstore? Well that is the reason I have not been blogging. I thought I had read all of Diana Gabaldon's Highlander Series, but it turns out I had missed the 5th book, The Fiery Cross. I bought that one and then I figured it had been so long since I had read any of them that I should re-read the 4th book, Drums of autumn, just to refresh my memory. I had forgotten how great her books are and I have been sucked right back into her tales. I am almost done with the 4th one and I am not sure if I want to start the 5th one or if I want to go back and read the first three before I start number 5.

I am terrible when I get into a book, I will stay up reading in bed until 3:00 in the morning, I will spend every free second I have reading until I have devoured the book cover to cover. I have neglected my knitting and my blogging. The good news is I am on page 953 and I only have about 100 pages to go. I will finish soon and we will return to your usual programming. Until I start book 1 or book 5. Which one should I read?

Go for book 5 then start the series at the beginning if you still crave her writing. Or you can see if she's written another series you haven't been sucked into yet.

Mom, have you read any of her books. They are all about time traveling witches and men in kilts, you would love them!

Wudas said...

Nope, I'm reading a trilogy about three women in Ireland.

kelly,I'm the same way when I read a book. I stay up late and I don't get anything done. After I finished 'The Half Blood Prince' I decided to read the whole series over. I just finished the other day and now I'm having that weird nothing to read, just finished a long series depression. Incidently thats one of the reasons I haven't updated my blog in a while

Kelly O said...

Mom-What's the series called?

Will-as soon as I read 'Harry Potter" in your post I thought, "ah, that's why he hasn't been blogging" then I read the rest of your comment and chuckled right out loud.

Will, try the Oz books Morgan's reading. He says they are as good as Harry Potter. It's a quick read and good for some smiles.
