[quote=""Susan""] I decided I've been visiting medieval England too often so I'm going to visit Judea of 2,000 years ago by reading Mary Called Magdalene by Margaret George.[/quote]

Oh, I have that book too. Liking it so far.

I am also reading Mary of Nazareth by Marek Halter.

Now reading The Women, which I am really liking. The fake biography style works just fine tho the footnotes are weird because you aren't sure if they are really true. But the author definitely fills in the pieces about Frank Lloyd Wright which were missing from Loving Frank.

I have an ARC of this on my nightstand. I should probably get around to reading it soon, since the book was published at the beginning of last month...

Right now I'm reading The Traitor's Wife.

Let me know how you liked this one. It is one of my all time favorites! Just started Grave Goods by Ariana Franklin. Hope it is better than the Serpent's Tale.

I've finished "The Hollywood Book of Death: The Bizarre, Often Sordid, Passings of More then 125 American Movie and TV Idols" by James Robert Parrish.

This was an interesting book, but I was surprised that Jean Harlow, who had a short but interesting life and whose death could've probably been prevented, was not included.

I think so, I'm not quite 100 pages into it and she's still setting up the story and the details of the family's glass business (which is interesting). Must get back to it now....
