Just finished Pompeii by Robert Harris. As told through the eyes of a Roman engineer sent to the area of Naples to be in charge of the Augusta Aquaduct, the story recounts the last two days before the grand eruption of Mt. Vesuvius in the year 79AD. An extremely interesting account that kept me reading until 1am last night. I highloy recommend this book.

"Lord of Chaos", Book Six of Robert Jordan's Wheel of Time series. Jordan passed away in 2007 before finishing the twelfth and final book of the series. His editor, who was also his wife, selected another author to finish the book. It is due this coming autumn. If you like fantasy-adventure, I highly recommend this series. But be prepared to commit some time to it. All eleven (so-far) books are in the 800-1000 page range. I started the series around Labor Day.ms_canada: Good to see you here! Looks like we're the only two today, though.

I am reading Capitol Threat by William Bernhardt which I can't get into and I used to love his Ben Kincaid series. I'm also starting Milk Glass Moon by Adriana Trigiani which is the 3rd book in a series which is based around a character named Ave Maria and her relationships with those around her. Really good book. We started reading the first novel, Big Stone Gap in our book club and liked it so much that we read the 2nd book, Big Cherry Holler and now are on the 3rd book.
