Our friend suggested DH to read.  Lee Child's A Jack Reacher book series.  So I am on the look out for them.

Just got back from a road trip and was listening to Nicholas Sparks, The Longest Ride book in the car.  We had lunch in Jackson, Mississippi and did the tour of the town where the movie, The Help was film.  Going to rent both movies to watch this week.

Sounds like a good one, Lea! I love a good cozy mystery! 

Comment by Ellen Pearce yesterday

Lea. Hadn't heard of this series but sound like a fun read.  I checked it on amazon.  Do you need to read Vineyard before you read Betrayal?  

I reading the 3rd of Anne Perry's WW1 series.  She adds so much of the history of the period in her novels.  I really like her work.  This one is different from the Monk and Pitt series because each novel continues the search for a high-placed traitor.

Comment by lea yesterday

Kathy, We are going into another 60-87 degree climb.  We haven't had rain for weeks but are still enjoying the grace of winter snow.  Because we have so many different kinds of temperatures here, our clothes are adaptable with layering. Hope you get warm.  Cold exacerbates fibromyalgia, a double whammy. 

I'm reading WWl literature, previewing books for my DGS.  We are covering the hero theme in World Literature starting with the Greeks.  The hero theme is a good platform to discuss virtues, philosophy, and different cultures.   The hero theme is one of the 4 basic themes in Western literature.

Hope that everyone has some time during the long weekend to read and quilt while remembering those who have given their lives serving in the military.

While I do find Nicholas Sparks' book usually have a sad ending, they also make a person stop & think about how you should treat the people in your life while they are here.  So often we take loved ones for granted until it is too late.  They also make you think about being willing to take risks in your life.  So often people are very unhappy, but are afraid to try something new or visit another part of the world when they would be much happier in life if they did just that.  

Right now I'm reading "Grey Mountain" by John Grisham.  It is about how the coal companies have literally destroyed parts of the country and the damage it has done to the families who live there.  Another intense subject matter, but one that should be dealt with.

Welcome to the group!

Our weather has been odd here lately as well. Just a strange spring all over the country I guess!

Oh my, if the Nicholas Spark's novels have such sad endings I don't think I want to read them. I cry at the drop of a hat and would probably not be able to pull myself together after such a story. I took back True Sister's with out finishing it, (something I rarely ever do), because I still felt out of sorts after reading Tallgrass, and I just didn't want anything that depressing right now. I went into Hastings yesterday and they were having a clearance sale on their used books and several large racks were priced at 2 for $.99! I found 10 knitting/quilting books so that was fun. I thought that after looking through them if I didn't like them I can bring them to give away at my quilt guild.
