I've been reading a lot lately. A lot ... and it is good:
Reading "The Mists of Avalon" by Marion Zimmer Bradley. Some magazine columnist had talked about how this book had transformed her life ... kind of like the first time that I discovered the Harry Potter books. I'm not feeling "transformed" yet, but I've been having this weird sense of deja vu. And that's when I remembered that one of the cable networks (TNT, I believe?) had adapted this book into a mini-series that I've watched. And enjoyed. So ... that works.
I've been OBSESSED with the books of JT Ellison lately ... she writes the Taylor Jackson series of murder mysteries and I've actually exchanged a few tweets with Ms. Ellison. She's a solid writer.
"True Blood" is back and I just finished the latest book in the Sookie Stackhouse series by Charlaine Harris - "Dead Reckoning." Although I love the TV series (ahem, Alexander Skarsgard), I'm kind of an ornery purist when it comes to the books and I wish that Alan Ball was a little more faithful to the books. Then again, he gave me Alex Skarsgard. I guess I can't be too ungrateful.
I have Steig Larsson's book "Girl With the Dragon Tattoo" and I want to see if I'll get sucked into that like everyone else in America. I also have Stephen King's latest story anthology to start reading ... thank God for the public library.
So now you know what I've been doing instead of cooking lately. :)
