I have always been particularly drawn to that era in our history...from back in grade school. To find myself here in VA is kinda providential. I spend a lot of time studying the battles fought around me. I have sat in Robt. E. Lee's seat in his church. Kinda makes those characters come to life. Been to Gettysburg, too....a life long goal of mine. Yeah....I am a history geek.

Karin, our member "Apposite", is quite the history buff and specializes in the Civil War.  

I've visited Hollywood Cemetery in Richmond several times.  Many Civil War stories there where Jefferson Davis and many others are buried.

I live in the middle of Civil War country, and have an extensive collection of books re that era.

Oh,Karin, am currently reading AMERICAN PRINCESS , a novel of First Daughter Alice Roosevelt.  Yes, I love historical fiction!

Karin, I stopped reading Patterson years ago when he stated releasing new books almost monthly. At that point they ceased to be special for me. 

Two of my current mystery/thriller authors are James Grippando, author of the Jack Swyteck novels and Dugoni, author of A STEEP PRICE and WRONGFUL DEATH.

Are there any fans of Patterson or Lee Child? Or history readers?

That is terrible about your library. I would really miss mine.

Comment by grammyk on January 22, 2019 at 11:32am

They haven't listed a cause yet, still investigating.  I hope it wasn't arson; that would make it even worse.  I really think that the town will work together to find temporary solutions for borrowers and, hopefully, for computer access also.

Comment by Lyn on January 22, 2019 at 11:23am

So sorry about the loss of your library. I cannot even imagine.  Hope ways can be found to help all get their books and have access to a computer while waiting for the rebuild.
