Trying to get some Wheel of Time reading done. I'm on book 7, A Crown of Swords, now and things are dragging. Found it the case with most of the WoT books, but normally the last 1/3 is always worth it.

One of the better Phryne Fisher books, I really enjoyed it. But next, a bit of mindless fantasy from Mercedes Lackey, since I've had it sitting in my TBR for months

But you never told us which mindless fantasy you read; there are so many from Mercedes Lackey - I have enjoyed quite a few in each of her series.

Ah, CJ, time to go get the Intruder PB, and get on the waiting list for Protector. And maybe buy another bookcase shelf for them. Or throw out obsolete computer books... that would free up space.

Finished Cherryh's Protector, and found myself at the end of it hating the fact that I'd have to wait a year or so before I could have the next book in this series. This one definitely left me wanting more.

Next up, Campion #4, Policemen at the Funeral.

Does it really matter? They're all much the same. In this case, it was the latest in the Valdemar series. And the title was so memorable that I don't remember it.

As for shelf space, Kindle has solved that!

Great. Just what I don't need - another book I really want to buy.

Thanks. I've put it on my wish list at Amazon.

I'm waiting until the last volume is published before I return to that series. There are so many books and so many plot threads that I just have to reread from the beginning. I don't find the various WoT websites adequate substitutes for a reread.

Currently I am reading Sister Teresa by Barbára Mujica, a historical novel about Saint Teresa of Avila. Good read so far.

Uh... you know the series is done and all published, right? If you're worried about the ebook version of the final volume, it comes out on Tuesday... so even if you re-read very, very quickly, you're not likely to run into any trouble.

No, I wasn't aware that the series was actually finished as I had lost track some years ago. Thank you for informing me. The first time I read the series I averaged about a day or two for the first four, slower for later volumes, but that was more skimming than reading. I probably won't pick up the series again for some time as I have too many other books that I've paid for and still haven't gotten around to reading. Thanks again!

For you Zombie readers, not many of us out there...I'm reading 'WARM BODIES' by Isaac Marion. I saw the movie first at the Studio Movie Grill a couple weeks ago and decided I liked it enough to read the book. The book tends to be better than the movie and in this case it is but the movie did a good job of picking out the important stuff. I just noticed above my reply Joy736 has this book in her/his signature.

I had started another Dan Brown book - Digital Fortress - but got a bit bored so I've moved on to Wolf Hall by Hillary Mantel.

This was a fun book with a weak ending. Lots of references to Google real or fictional I'm not sure which. Several ereader mentions including Kobo. Writing was fairly competent with some comically geeky cliches. Your reality meter has to be on pause to complete this piece. However, the conclusion was disappointing. Somewhat expected so I was ripe for a surprise that didn't materialize. Rated C- [2 stars].

Next I'll try A Beautiful Blue Death by Charles Finch.

Tell us how you get along with Wolf Hall. My mother loved this and I bought it recently when it was on special at Amazon.

Almost done with Crown of Swords and as expected things only really start picking up in the last 200 pages or so. Will need to read something with a bit more oomph before tackling the next one.

Edit: Done. And as usual the ending hooked me again. Now to decide if I want to jump straight into the next one while I still remember everything that happened.
