Just thought I'd try to rejuvenate this topic by starting a new thread.

I'm currently reading Our Mutual Friend, which I started before Christmas, and then put aside for a while. With the Dickens bicentennial going on, I returned to it, and intend to finish it this month. I'm also reading several books from the public library in February. Actively engaged with The Vesuvius Club, and have three more titles checked out to carry on with when that's finished.

I am reading Inheritence and The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde and The Discovery of France and several other books. I need to do a bettr job of keeping track. Maybe if I confessed regularly to all the books I've started I might finish a few more.

Some kind of glitch has caused this topic to post twice. (I didn't do it, I swear!) Let's call this the "right one", and let the other one die, OK?

ok, now, I've just rec'd two more books and I'll add one of them to my list of books being read in Feb.

Grass For His Pillow, Tales of the Otori, book 2 and Brilliance of the Moon, Tales of the Otori, book 3 bad touchstones! They are not written by Gillian Rubinstein. They are by Lian Hearn. I assume not the same person.

Having just finished a book, I got out Voices from Dickens' London, to read during the Dickens ReadAThing. I've only read part of the first chapter, but am enjoying it immensely.

>4 maggie1944:
Maggie, when I look at Gillian Rubinstein's author page, the following names have been combined with hers:

Includes the names: Lian Heran, Lian Hearn, Liam Hearn, Lian Hearn, pseud. Lian Hearn, Gillian Rubinstein, Gillian Rubenstein, psevd. for Gillian Rubinstein Lian Hearn

It looks like Lian Hearn is a pseudonym of hers.

ah ha! Apologies. I should have done that looking myself.

No harm done!

I finished Doc by Mary Doria Russell this morning. It was one of the best books I've read this year.

I will be reading Death of Kings by Bernard Cornwell, the latest in his Saxon series and David Copperfield for the Dickens Read-A-Thing.
