I loved Agatha Christie's books, Amanda, and have read most of them many times. My oldest DD started reading them last summer. I know she enjoyed Jane Eyre as well.

Right now I'm rereading some of the Monica Ferris books that a friend gave me. I haven't gotten to the library in a few weeks, so I'm reading what's on hand.

Still reading Murder on the Orient Express and Jane Eyre.

What is everyone else reading right now?

I am almost at the end of Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell, it has been so long, I really like the audio book's narrator so that is good, but there are 26 different tracks with each being over a hour long, so that is quite a few hours to spend with a story, unfortunately it has not been that interesting, mostly tedious, then there will be weird icky bits, Very unusual book, I don't think I have read anything like it before. Not worth the time investment, in my opinion. I haven't watched the mini series, Kathy, but my mom started it and said it was pretty weird.
I did start another Cat Who mystery, because they are always fun.
I loved the first Mary Russell/Sherlock novel, it was fantastic.
I also read The Readers of Broken Wheel Recommend, it was pretty good, too.
I checked out Murder on the Orient Express, from the library. It is my favorite Agatha Christie mystery from my years ago binge of as many of her books as I could find.

Thanks Amanda. I am going to rescind my recommendation for that book. While it had a decent ending, over all the subject matter left a lot to be desired and her writing style was very poor.  I won't be checking any more of her books out of the library that is for sure.

Lovely runner, Janet! I voted.

I was very excited to find the first Mary Russell/Sherlock Holmes novel at the library, I am really enjoying it so far.

I didn't know it was a mini series, Kathy thanks for letting me know. So far the book has not been dark or scary at all. I am not half done with it yet, though, so maybe it changes.

I have a favor to ask.  I entered a fall tablerunner contest sponsored by Nancy Zieman of Sewing With Nancy fame.  The voting goes from today through Sunday & I would sure appreciate it if you all took a minute to vote for my entry.  It is entry #43 & you can vote at www.nancyzieman.com/blog.   Thanks so much.  The winners will be announced on the 20th so I will let everyone know if I won anything.

I am reading an interesting book called "The Japanese Lover" by Isabel Allende.  This is my 1st time reading any of her books.  It is about a young Jewish woman who falls in love with a young Japanese man during WW II.  They both live in San Francisco.  It is a good book although the story line is a bit disjointed at times.

Amanda, I have the movie ofJonathan Strange and Mr.Norrell on my Netflix....it sure is a dark and scary movie...it comes in a series form...
Comment by Amanda Best on September 12, 2016 at 6:28pm

I just started re-reading Jane Eyre. I had forgotten how sad it is.

I also started a book called Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell by Susana Clarke. It came out it 2004 and I got it then, but I never started it, when I saw the audio version at the library, I snapped it up. It is a long book. Has anyone read it here?

And I just finished the third Cat Who book by Lilian Jackson Braun I have liked each one more than the previous one, so far.
