If you have ever enjoyed the books of Pat Conroy, placed mostly in the South Carolina low country, you may be saddened to learn he died yesterday at age 70.  Here is a collection of blogs he wrote recently that may be of interest.  Of course, there is some classic literature he has left to will define him as one of America's great southern writers.  http://patconroy.com/wp/

I am on a quest to reread some of the great literature put out over the years by Jeffery Archer, the famous and infamous, English author who spent 2 years in prison for a libel conviction in which he did not defend himself.  He is a year younger than me at 75 now but still writing.  I am rereading the classic 5 book saga of the Clifton Chronicles and the last book in the series has been released with a summary of the tale. The deal is only $2.99 from Amazon.  http://www.amazon.com/Mightier-than-Sword-Chronicles-Analysis-ebook...

I picked up 2 Marcia Muller books at our library book sale, and after finishing both,decided to try to read all the "Sharon McCone" books of hers.  Also reading Tale of Two Cities for an OLLI class I am taking--quite a difference in the literature this week!  Has anyone else taken any OLLI classes? (O. Lifelong Learning Institute) for the over 50"s set.  I have really been enjoying them, and the literature related classes are stimulating.  I have been so busy with classes and volunteering, I haven't stopped by to this site for awhile.  I will try to do better from now on.

Thanks to all who left me birthday greetings!  My computer got messed up on June and I have not been able to get back on the Bookoholics page until I finally got in today and got a new password so that I can come on again.  I was so fortunate to be able to go to Omaha the end of August to see and hear Louise Penny!!  She was a delightful lady, and the 4 of us who drove together over 100 miles felt it was well worth the travel and time.  There were many devoted fans there, and we all left feeling wonderful!

Just finished a book that serves as an update to Ayn Rand's 'Atlas Shrugged". It's called "The Frankenstein Candidate" by Vinay Kolhatkar and it summarizes well today's political/financial situation. And that's scary. VK could be channeling Rand. I got the ebook free on Amazon but it's worth buying.
