I keep saying I'm going to buy the Last Queen but I'm always distracted by Plaidy, Chawick and Penman. they pop up on my amazon reccommendations and I end up getting those or others that caught my eye a year ago and are cheaper now. One day soon though...

i just finished graceling by kristin cashore.
it is YA fantasy and i recommend it. old school
fantasy, not contemporary.

now, i think i'll go back to the name of the
winde by rothfuss. it's gotten great reviews
as epic fantasy.

I've finished "An Ice Cold Grave: Harper Connelly Mystery #3" by Charlaine Harris, it was good but a bit more disturbing then the last 2 books.

Ordinary Heros by Scott Turow. My sis put this in my hands as soon as I came to her house for tday, with a 'you must read this!' expression on her face. Started it this morning, and so far I am quite enthralled. About a man who discoveres information about his father's past during WWII and goes hunting for more. Very well written.

I borrowed that book from the library at one point, but had to take it back unread. I do intend to borrow it again at one point.

Just finished Poldark. I enjoyed it much more, actually! a little slower-paced than the current fashion, but what a wealth of accurate detail on 18th-century Cornwall! I entirely forgot all the economics of mining, the class issues, and so forth! I guess when I first read it I mostly remembered the romance.

Now I'm going to have to get Demelza again. I do remember the mine going broke in that one, it made me feel so sorry for everyone.

I'm about 100 pages into Luis Alberto Urrea's The Hummingbird's Daughter and am attempting to read it while husband & nephew watch a recent Bond movie.

Glad to hear such a good report on Poldark - I just received the first volume (new reprint) from Book Depository. I've never read it before.

I've finished ""Graveyards of Chicago: The People, History, Art, and Lore of Cook County Cemeteries" by Ursula Bielski & Matt Hucke. Very interesting to read about what famous people are buried in some of the Chicago cemeteries and seeing the funerary art, some are very fascinating. I wish they had more images though.
