22454 I'm so sorry Kiri! I just sent you a PM with the info. :)

22454 Hey guys, my fault Kiri's task hasn't been posted yet. I got confused on how we were going to handle her task. I'll get with her ASAP so we can get that task posted. Sorry for the delay!

22454 I'm finishing up Matterhorn: A Novel of the Vietnam War and all I can say is WOW. I can't believe how totally swept away I've been by this book. I'm actually pretty sad about reaching the end of it. I don't want it to be over! This one will most definitely be going on my 'favorites' list.

Hey Jayme, The Pillars of the Earth has already been one of our group reads....back in Oct/Nov '09. Do have another book in mind that you'd like to nominate instead?

22454 I've been reading The Count of Monte Cristo for the past couple of weeks. And I'm only about halfway through it! Man, this book is one heck of a chunkster. I'm really enjoying it, though. Even if it's taking me for-freaking-ever to get through. LOL

22454 Yeah, these mini-challenges seem to be really popular. Love the ideas you came up with for this one, Becky. Nice job! :)
22454 I read Shanghai Girls last year and absolutely loved it. It was one of my favorite reads of the year. You guys are in for a real treat with this one. Enjoy!

Yep, sounds like it would work for that task Babs.

22454 Amy, I'm so happy to hear that you read and loved The Invisible Bridge also! It's one of the best books I've read so far this year. Have you read Orringer's other book called How to Breathe Underwater? I don't usually gravitate toward short stories, but this particular book of hers sounds so interesting. I enjoyed her style of writing so much in The Invisible Bridge that I would be willing to read anything that she writes.

22454 Welcome to the group, Stuart! :)

I was just having a look at the Flashman series you recommended...looks great! I just added the first book of the series to my TBR. I hadn't heard of George MacDonald Fraser. So glad you mentioned him!

22454 As long as the religious freedom part is a focal point/major theme to the story, then I would say yes it would work for that task, Holly.

22454 I just recently finished reading The Invisible Bridge. Such a beautifully written story! I thoroughly enjoyed every minute I spent reading it and highly recommend it to all you WWII historical fiction lovers out there.

I've been craving a Tudor read so I decided to start on The Constant Princess by Philippa Gregory. It's been sitting on my shelf collecting dust for far too long. Feels good to finally be reading it! I've read several of PG's books and have enjoyed them all. There seem to be a lot of mixed reviews for Constant Princess and I'm curious to see what I think of it. I like what I've read so far. Hoping that positive vibe continues!

22454 It's wonderful to have you with us, Elizabeth! You have so many fans here in the group, as you will quickly find out once you start perusing the threads. So glad you decided to join in the fun here! :)
22454 Jackie, that's an interesting point you brought up about Marcella! (view spoiler)
22454 I finished DoR last night and have to say I thoroughly enjoyed it. One of the things I love about Kate's books is how action-packed and exciting the stories are. Once they grab you, they don't let go! And the drama...all the juicy, wonderful drama...*blissful sigh* I absolutely love it! :)
