I have the tendency to read more then one book at a time smile I am reading "The Kashmir Shawl" by by Rosie Thomas and "Aphrodite's Kiss" by Julie Kenner.

I didn't think I would be able to get into The Kasmir Shawl but I am really enjoying it. Here is the synopsis from Amazon.com

"It is the eve of 1941 and World War II is engulfing the globe. Newlywed Nerys Watkins leaves rural Britain to accompany her husband on a missionary posting to India, but when he leaves her in the exotic lakeside of Srinagar to take on a complicated mission elsewhere, she discovers a new world. Here, in the heart of Kashmir, the British dance, flirt, and gossip against the backdrop of war and Nerys soon becomes caught up in a dangerous liaison. By the time she is reunited with her husband, she is a very different woman. .

Years later, Nery’s granddaughter Mair Ellis clears out her dead father’s house and finds an exquisite shawl--a kaleidoscope of silvery blues and greens. Wrapped in the folds of this delicate object is a lock of a child’s curly hair. With nothing else to go on, Mair decides to trace her roots back to Kashmir, embarking on a quest that will change her own life forever."

Jeannette, I am primarily a non-fiction reader but you have inspired me to pick up fiction again.

"Boule de Suif" by Maupassant. I love Maupassant's short stories.

I am reading (savoring) Ethan Frome by Edith Wharton, I bought this book at a library book sale. When I was in high school it was required reading, I am reading again to find out why the story has stayed with me for so many years.

Meredeth, wow--I have not heard the name Maupassant in year's, who says you can't go home again?

I am enjoying a light novel at the moment - My Brother Michael by Mary Stewart which takes place in Greece. Part of my enjoyment is getting a first hand description of the terrain in the Delphi area.

Nothing and that has been going on for years now which is not good for my brain and also shocking since I love reading.
