Back to non fiction--'The blackfeet (raiders of the northwestern plains). It's the 3rd book which I picked up at the cowboy museum. However today is devoted to the Belmont.

I never really got into those books. Read about half a dozen of them, I guess just never clicked.

I'm really annoyed w/myself; I lost Mortal Love, so besides having to replace it, it was just getting really good & now I have to wait. GRrrrrr.... Angry

So I've picked up The Servant's Tale the next in the Margaret Frazer series. Always have a Plan B... Big Grin

Ok, I gotta ask. How did you "lose" a book? Heh heh, one assumes you ARE talking about a book?
Confidence is that feeling you have right before you do something really stupid.

I set the book on the hood of the car while dealing w/getting the dogs loaded up. Sad And it was a library book. So I'm hoping somebody found it & will turn it in in a couple of days; if not, then I'll buy a new one to replace it.

Sorry to see Lillian Braun go - a lot of people really enjoyed her books. But yeah, at 97, it was a long life.

I think I had read it before, and seen the movie, but I liked it a lot. I cried at the end, I'm such a baby lately!

Off to the library today to look for the second one!

Have been reading Lisa See's sequel to Shanghai Girls - Dreams of Joy. Very interesting for its look inside of communist China in Mao's first 10 years.

Finished The Servant's Tale, very enjoyable read. Now I think A Letter of Mary by Laurie R. King, the third in her Mary Russell & Sherlock Holmes series. Smiling

LOL. Kinda jumpy, eh?

The second Harry Potter book is not at the library, I put my name on a waiting list and then ended up buying it on ebay for $1.

Still browsing in my Space Opera book, although the stories are quite dated. Haven't come across a really good one yet.

Yesterday went to the dentist in Knoxville (our nearest big town) Sad , stopped at the big used book store, McKays, which had a full parking lot at 11am on a Wed. Books are not dead!! Then we took a back road to our favorite restaurant, and I found another used bookstore, called the Bent Page or Bent corner or something like that. Books kind of jumbled around, in alphabetical order in some places, not in others. A great store for browsing. They had a lot of brand new looking hardcovers outside for $1, I should have bought some- Patterson, Cornwell, Robb, etc. I only bought 2 books, 2 Steinbeck paperbacks, Sweet Thursday, which I just realized I think I've read before and probably have up in the boxes of books, and Travels with Charlie, about Steinbeck and his standard Poodle Charlie driving around and across the USA.

Picked up the first book in another series by a new (to me) author, Victoria Thompson, called Murder on Astor Place. The protagonist is a midwife and the series takes place in turn-of-the-century New York. So far, it's a pretty good period piece; something of a good reminder of just how delightful life used to be for women. You know, "the good old days" that certain politicians would like to return us to? Whistling

Now it's back to jump to the end... Angry Flakes.

When a lot of spec fic gets old, it gets very, very old. I think that's how one can tell the diff between a character driven story & one that relies on flash & fancy. I don't see McMaster Bujold feeling dated anytime soon, not 'til angst goes out of style. Hilarious!
