All those books it says I am reading, I have reviewed and have the date read on them. I have no clue why they stay there like that. I went back and checked and they show the date I read them. I don't really want to hide or delete them so I just let them sit there!
Oh, gosh! I think it was the process of becoming retired (finishing school, signing up for Soc. Sec. and Medicare A, B, D, and F, paperwork stuff) that stopped me from posting the books I read. Anyhow, I'm back tonight to get some caught up. Thank you for the recommendation. I'll get it when I finish this Robert Crais series I'm on. I think Shelfari stopped sending me notifications of posts, too. I was surprised to find new books read by four of us, plus a post in the group blog.
I just ordered a bunch of books from Abebooks and told Mel that they are my Christmas presents from him. I can't remember any of the titles but they are all on sewing, weaving, machine quilting, knitting etc. All are reference books. I can't wait until they start arriving in the mail. I'll bet the mailcarrier knows what I like to order the most throughout the year.
Maybe wait for a while before you start in on the fictionalized versions? I had read The Body Farm several years ago, so I had a background for the fiction series, but it was in "the mists of time". ;) Before we went on vacation this summer, I checked out the whole series and read them at night in this remote campground. It was fun to just go through them all, and I enjoyed the slightly bumbling professor character.
Umm...I'm only on about the 7th story in the Poe's Children book, but I swear these stories make less sense and become more confusing as the book progresses. I'm going to finish it out, but I've only read one more that I'd recommend so far. Bummer, dude.
Carla, I loved A very Modest Cottage. Thanks for lending it to me. I would recommend that book to lot of friends who have restored or saved a building. They will relate to the author and her husband, and her brother who saved this little 1920's cabin.
