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...

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.

I watched Casablanca for the first time yesterday, and wow, it is great.

I don't watch any political, too depressing! Luckily we don't have TV all the time!

 The Laurie King, Sherlock books, look great Kathy, but I can seem to find the first one, I am going to have to buy it online.

Our temps have dropped here too & I sure hope they stay like this.  Beautiful blue skies with white fluffy clouds & cool enough temps to be able to turn off the a/c.

I too am married to a political junkie, but we don't want Fox!  I'm just thankful that I can go in my sewing room & not have to listen to the same thing over & over again.

Good Morning Ladies...Fall is in the air..at last!!..it feels so good to feel that cold air in the morning but by 10:00am, we are back into 90 degrees...
I am with you girls..I love the old movies especially on Saturday when I get to watch the old cowboy movies...and sometimes even Charlie Chan movies..love it! I am married to a Political Junkie....he watches Fox night and day!!..for me , bring on the books to read and beautiful music to listen to....the TV is just too much noise!!
....I am enjoying the books by Laurie King....in fact I think I will read them all...they are a take off Sherlock Holmes and Mary Russell stories..nothing heavy, just fun stories...

I love those movies too Amanda.  If I lived alone, the tvs would be sold as I would much rather listen to music.  Larry, on the other hand, is too attached to tv to give it up.  I doubt I would even miss the few shows that I like because after awhile they just recycle the same story plots.
