Does anyone else here have time to read books? I don't have time for a formal book club, but I'd love to be able to discuss books online here with fellow caregivers. I'm in the middle of The Goldfinch, am also reading Wicked, 1491 and am open to reading anything else. Let me know.

I'll forgive Sidney Sheldon everything after he came up with that line!

Not enough time to enjoy reading a book for 4 hours straight! But I’m currently reading The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho, and I’m loving it so far.

Just as a side note: 1 of Diana's fans was waiting for her latest book to come out. Her daughter contacted Diana to let her know that her mom (elderly) was in the hospital and not expected to live long enough to see the next book. After promising silence, Diana sent the manuscript she had completed to the woman. How classy is that? :-) Of course we were told after the fact.

The outlander series by Diana Gabaldon . They are long books but a great getaway. As far as a book club to discuss the books she has a great following on facebook, her own web page and many fan pages with lots of online discussions. Her 1st book (there are 8 in all) just got picked up my Starz and will premiere on Aug 9.
They are a great way to escape, I have. Hopefully some of you might think so too :-) Let me know

Book, we have the complete works of Dick sodding Francis. Twice. Mother's book-buying habit is one reason I'm glad the POA kicked in. But then again as older daughter keeps reminding me: "Apple. Tree."

I think I read only 1 book of the Dick Francis series. Is this the one that has to do with murder/mystery regarding racehorses? Not my cup of tea. So, I never bought another book on that series. Sue Grafton - I was never motivated or curious to read her books (the alphabet series.)

I liked several of Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum series. It was sooo funny - the first 5 books. After that, it got soooo irritating. One would think after book 5 that both Stephanie and her sidekick would have Improved. But it was same-old same-old story. I kept buying her books but would skip-read throughout the story - starting on book 11? After book 18, I quit buying her books. I was fed up that both female characters Never Grew or Improved work-wise. Their personalities were definitely irritating me by then. Time to stop buying her books.

I love murder mysteries, especially Sue Grafton and Dock Francis. My favorite Dick Francis is Proof, which is all about single malt scotch. Another great stress buster, in moderation of course.
