(If you haven't noticed the cool new thing on the right side --- you can now see what book I am reading RIGHT NOW! Neat, huh?)
With a week in bed, I've had a bit of time to read (less than you'd think, though -- you get really sick and it's all you can do to stare at the ever-lovin' ceiling). I finished another of "The Outlander" series by Diana Gabaldon, this one "Drums of Autumn".
I don't want to spoil the book for anyone because I really REALLY hope you will read them and love them as much as I do. But I will say that I was prepared not to love this one as much as the first two, but again, I was amazed and swept away. The first two books were faster paced, but these later books really settle in and tell a good story. I learned quite a bit about pre-Revolutionary War America, and kept falling deeper in love with Jamie and Claire.
I started "The Fiery Cross", which is the next-to-the-last book in the series, and I have no idea what I'm going to do when I'm done with them all. I know it sounds silly, but after investing thousands of pages and many hours into this series, I can't quite imagine being DONE with them.
OK, fine. Call me crazy. But I'm loving these books.
