Just finished 'When Christ and his Saints Slept' and started 'Time and Chance,' by Sharon Kay Penman. Trying to get myself up to speed for 'Devil's Brood.'

[quote=""Misfit""]Gee, thanks for making me feel my age. That was a movie back in the 70's? 60's?[/quote]

I think it was made in the 70's but I didn't see it until the late 80's. I remember I used to baby sit for extra cash and make all the kids watch this movie over and over again. They complained to their Mom's eventually! :D

I just finished the last of Penmans Welsh Triology, my gosh you guys were right, how emotionally rendering the stories were and by the end of each I was devastated till I started the next.

I trying to decide if it will be The Last Wife of Henry VIII, Crown in Candlelight, or the Fist Princess of Wales, any suggestion?

Just started reading Barbara Erskine's "Kingdom of Shadows"...a time traveler novel back and forth 1988 to 1296 in the time of Robert the Bruce.....This my first venture in this genre .....I'm not sure if I can hang with it....the history and characters are interesting....the concept is bothersome.....

I'm still slugging through The Book Thief. I'm really not enjoying this book. I like the interesting and unique writing style but the story just isn't grabbing me at all. I'm debating with myself whether to put it down or not! What the heck is wrong with me?? Aparrantly, I'm the only person in the world who doesn't think this book is just the best ever! :confused:

I've been in that position a time or two myself. I feel your pain. Put it aside and try something else, cleanse the pallet (I know I'm not spelling that right) and try again.
