    I'd love to. Unfortunately the discussions don't turn out so lively.

    Do you have nay suggestions for books?

    I have been reading the "Next" books. Different authors, the plots are about mid-life women who have come to a turning point in their lives for whatever reasons. They've often lost spouses to divorce/death, have kids, families and are trying to pick up and start over.

    Lisa Childs: Learning to Hula

    Diane Amos: A Long Walk Home


    A funny book: Dixie Cash: Since You're Leaving Anyway, Take Out the Trash

    Lisa Wingate: Texas Cooking, Lone Star Cafe, Over the Moon @ the Big Lizard Diner

    A good one for a "young reader" about the Revolutionary War: William Lavender: Just Jane


    I would just LOVE it if someone else would get hooked on the 1632 series. The first one? Eric Flint, 1632. (duh. OK, don't slap me, please.)

    I've been reading a lot this summer.
    I've read some of the Next books as well. Not the ones you've mentioned though. I've also read a few Red Ink Press books. Same style, different generation.

    I don't know of 1632 though.

    Just ordered 1632. I like Harry Turtledove alternate history books.
    Maybe I'll get hooked?

    EDITORIAL REVIEWS:

    From Library Journal
    When a cosmic accident transports a West Virginia community back in time and space to 17th-century Thuringia, the citizens of Grantville find themselves thrust into the midst of the bloody and savage conflict that history books would call the Thirty Years War. Surrounded by warring armies and burdened by the prospect of diminishing resources, Grantville residents, under the leadership of a council that includes a union leader, a doctor, and a teacher, proceed to turn their new world upside down, beginning the American Revolution a century and a half before its time. Flint (Mother of Demons) convincingly re-creates the military and political tenor of the times in this imaginative and unabashedly positive approach to alternative history. A solid choice for fantasy collections.

    From Booklist
    In Flint's novel of time travel and alternate history, a six-mile square of West Virginia is tossed back in time and space to Germany in 1632, at the height of the barbaric and devastating Thirty Years' War. Repelling marauding mercenaries and housing German refugees are only the first of many problems the citizens of the tiny new U.S. face, problems including determining who shall be a citizen. In between action scenes and descriptions of technological military hardware, Flint handles that problem and other serious ethical questions seriously and offers a double handful of memorable characters: a Sephardic Jewish family that establishes commercial and marital ties with the Americans, a cheerleader captain turned lethal master sniper, a schoolteacher and an African American doctor who provide indispensable common sense and skill, a German refugee who is her family's sole protector, and, not least, King Gustavus Adolphus of Sweden. Not, perhaps, as elegant as some time-traveling alternate histories, Flint's is an intelligent page-turner nevertheless.

    I lve reading so I guess I will join your bookclub, try the book and see what happens. It will be nice to discuss books with different people. I am a big fand of murder mysteries, thrillers and medical thrillers. Some of my favorite authors are James Patterson, Robin Cook, Jonathon Kellerman, Kay Hooper, Karin Slaughter, John Standford, Andrew Greeley, Mary Higgins Clark.
    Though I read lots of differernt things both fictionand nonfiction.

    i anticipate your opinion of the books!

    I’m a big fan of James White. He was ahead of his time in creating believable aliens health care workers, physiologies, and great stories. My favorite line was after the doctor told a nurse to “keep an eye” on one patient after another. “I have only two eyes doctor, and they don’t swivel independently.”
