Interesting topic. Although I'm not a writer, I am a pharmacist and have occasionally had to take AD's. My thought is that if an anti-depressant is being taken and is working (patient approaching normality with mood, socializing, etc.), then I would think that it would free the patient/writer to do ...

Thanks for the responses. That explains why there's not a set-in-stone guide on how to read them. This confusion on my part reminds me of fantasy author, L.E. Modesitt and his Recluse series. Even though his books skip around the history of his fantasy world, it is highly recommended to read the boo...

Sharpe reading order

I'm trying to find a guide to what order to read the Sharpe series. I'm sure this is discussed in places, but I'm experiencing a little search vagueness. As I understand, a reader doesn't necessarily have to read in published order, nor does he/she have to read in chronological order. From those who...

You ladies crack me up! Am I the only tough guy on this forum? hehe!! I think my wife and I compete with each other as to who reads the most. We have quite a library going. I know that she has always read. There was a time when I didn't read much, starting around 9th grade, when I became quite a bit...

My sister does a lot of geneology in our family.

My maternal grandmother's maiden name was Raglan...as in the Raglan castle in Wales. It'd be neat to see the castle but I'm just a redneck from Oklahoma who has blood from England and Ireland.

Just a tidbit...don't know how earth-shattering...
