1059 I just finished White Smoke, by Andrew Greeley, which is a novel about intrigue surrounding the election of a pope.

Not a deep read, but a fun one.

1059 Boof - is Belle de Jour related to the Catherine Deneuve movie of that name?

1059 Just finished Company of Liars. It was quite good.
Jul 04, 2008 10:50AM

1059 I started Company of Liars (which is a novel set in 1348, during the Black Death) yesterday. I'm about a hundred pages in and liking it so far.

I just finished Nothing Like It in the World, by Steven Ambrose, last night, so I'll need a new non-fiction. I think McCullough's The Great Bridge (about the building of the Brooklyn Bridge) is calling me, so I'll probably start that tonight.

1059 Yeah, these days I only give a book about 50 pages or so to "grab" me. Maybe 100 if it's victorian (Dickens, Trollope, etc.). After you've had a stroke, you realize life is too short not to enjoy what you're reading!

1059 Right now I'm reading:

Nothing Like It In the World, by Stephen Ambrose, which is about building the transcontinental railroad
The Sunne in Splendour, by Sharon Kay Penman, a historical novel about Richard III
The Winthrop Woman, by Anya Seton

1059 Yeah, Sweet Thursday probably makes more sense if you've already read Cannery Row.

I like both novels, but prefer Cannery Row.

1059 I'm starting The Sunne in Splendour, by Sharon Kay Penman, today.
Jun 18, 2008 09:40AM

1059 I read His Majesty's Dragon, by Naomi Novik (the Napoleonic War, with dragons) yesterday.
Jun 14, 2008 09:35AM

1059 A friend in Sweden sent me Revelation, by C. J. Sansom, and it got here this morning.

I am very excited, as I have been looking forward to it (and it's not out yet in the States)!

1059 I started The Omnivore's Dilemma, by Michael Pollan, earlier this afternoon. Very good so far.
Jun 07, 2008 09:29AM

1059 I finished Love and Louis XIV, by Antonia Fraser, last night. Very interesting, and well-written.

1059 And last night we were watching an episode of The Six Wives of Henry VIII ("Anne of Cleeves") and the need for a biography of Cranmer came upon us. So we ordered from Amazon:

A biography of Thomas Cranmer
T. Rex and the Crater of Doom, by Walter Alvarez,
and The Sunne in Splendor, by Sharon Kay Penman.

I tell you, we are sad, sad addicts.

1059 I was at a local used bookstore a few days ago, and got a few books:

The Queen's Man, by Sharon Kay Penman
The Tears of the Giraffe, by Alexander McCall Smith
The Many Lives and Secret Sorrows of Josephine B., by Sandra Gulland
The Time Traveler's Wife, by Audrey Niffenegger
and a couple of Robert B. Parkers.

1059 I just finished (yesterday evening) The Queen's Man: A Medieval Mystery, by Sharon Kay Penman.

It was a fun little historical mystery. My main complaint with it was it was too short.
Jun 03, 2008 04:53PM

1059 Let me rephrase that - I've just finished The Queen's Man.

It was a nice little historical mystery.
Jun 03, 2008 08:53AM

1059 I am reading (about halfway through) The Queen's Man: A Medieval Mystery, by Sharon Kay Penman.

I'm enjoying it so far. Unfortunately, it's not very long - 270 pages.
Jun 02, 2008 03:10PM

1059 I picked this up today. It looks very interesting.
May 28, 2008 10:50AM

1059 Just finished The Horse, the Wheel, and Language, which is about the Proto-Indo-Europeans, and interesting, but a bit boggy in the middle.

Next up on the history front is Love and Louis XIV, by Antonia Fraser, and on the fiction side it's still The Winthrop Woman, by Anya Seton, and Paper Doll, by Robert B. Parker.
May 25, 2008 07:06PM

1059 Absolutely.
