About meI study World War I. I edit the magazine of the World War One Historical Association. I also read a LOT of fiction (and very fast, too). I would rather read than eat, I would sooner read than sleep.

About my libraryI got back and forth between entering every book I ever liked, or every title I can think of, or everything I've ever read -- but that would skew my library toward mysteries, and my WWI books are much more important to me, even though I haven't begun to read them all.

Great to hear from you. A lot of time has passed. Hard to believe. I just attended my 50th high school reunion in August, another reminder of the passing of time when one's mind is occupied elsewhere.

I note your interest in World War I. I have become more interested in that war myself in the past year or so. It may have been the worst war ever.

Picardyrose,

Sorry for the delay, I believe Harriet Julia Campbell Jephson is Canadian

I was just curious about the early reviewers picked for November's books so I clicked on your profile. Now, I find myself curious about your profile picture. Where was that picture taken? Looks really interesting.
Hi, I really enjoy your pithy one-line reviews when I see them in the list of "other people's reviews of your books". Thank you!
Just saw the one for Busman's honeymoon in the list. Yes, exactly. All anyone really needs to know about it.
I wish I could find a way to stop myself typing after one line...
Thank you so much for recommending "The Miracle of the Bells". I just finished and LOVED it, as you predicted!

many thanks,
HonorBright
Hi picardyrose,

I hope you enjoy it, I really did. We had over 100 posts about The Outlander. It got quite a bit of discussion. The folder will stay open but move into the "Previous Discussions" area.

Do feel free to drop by anytime to talk about anything you are reading! :)

Thanks,
Dawn
This is my all-time favourite book apart from 'Cider with Rosie' by Laurie Lee, which inches by a smidgin. Would be interested to hear other reader's comparisons.
Interesting... the books we share are almost all WWI narratives. Your catalogue has suggested me some titles that I will try to get. Thanks!
Hello - When I ran across your name in "Talk," I knew I'd found another person interested in WWI:)
Since your two largest tags are WWI and mystery, I wondered if you'd read Jacqueline Winspear's Maisie Dobbs series? I've just finished reading them, and I wanted to suggest them to you, just in case you don't know them already. I recommend them highly.

Yes, she's still writing but mostly picture books and easy readers. Her last full-length novels were Willow and Twig and Birdie for Now. Sometimes it takes a while for her stuff to trickle down from Canada! She has a website - www.jeanlittle.com
My Jean Little favorite is Look Through My Window. The first of her books I ever read! I have an autographed copy of Hey World, Here I Am and a letter from her too! Nice to meet a fellow fan.
I don't understand what people who don't read think about all day long.
