Barbara | 5 comments Hi everybody, I’m Barbara.
I’m new to GR and this is my first post EVER — a personal premier so to say ;o)
I’m into reading ever since I can remember.
The first book that really hooked me was Ken Follett’s “The Pillars of the Earth”. To be honest I re-read this one about four times over the last 20 years — and it was different each time ;o)
I recently set up my profile on GR and noticed how much of an impact those books I read really had on my personal life. I never was aware of that before.
I´d love to exchange experiences and draw inspiration from other members about the influence of books on their life.

Dawn | 547 comments Welcome Barbara! I've never read The Pillars of the Earth before and now I'm very intrigued and have added it to my to-reads, so thanks for mentioning it.

Re: recent historical fiction, I recommend Tell the Wolves I'm Home (1980s), The Song of Achilles (Bronze Age), and The House at the Edge of Night (late 1800s to early 2000s).

Barbara | 5 comments Hi Dawn,
I am sure you will enjoy it — but be cautious this book is highly addictive : )

Tarsan, please stop soliciting the group for copies of ebooks. That is a form of piracy and not condoned here.
