Umm, SMALLER bookcase (notice the marathon medals in the shadowbox...the first five, baby!)
I finished reading Outlander by Diana Gabaldon on the recommendation of two bookworm-y friends. I was up until 3:00 this morning reading because I couldn't put it down. Thank you thank you thank you to Mary M. in Indiana and Karen for turning me on to this series. As I was out doing my last-second Christmas shopping this afternoon (wow, Christmas really snuck up on us this year, didn't it??) in the Ninth Circle of Hell (aka, the mall), I popped into Waldenbooks and bought the second book in the six-book series, Dragonfly in Amber. Sure, they're basically romance novels, but they're so much more. But they're intelligent and well-written, unlike most of the romance novels I read when I was a teenager.
Is it possible to be in love with a book? 'Cause I think I wanna marry this one...
Next on my To-Be-Read pile: The Gods of Newport by my main man, John Jakes.
Happy reading to all who indulge!
