Hi everyone!

Just thought I'd mention that I'm enjoying the Elizabeth Goudge book I bought for cheap. Cathedral Trilogy. It's a one-volume paperback of City of Bells, Towers in the Mist and The Dean's Watch.

It seems to be a gentle sort of tale. Maybe it's just an older style? In any case, I really like it, and it's just what I need to read at bedtime. Set in an English city. Very atmospheric and scenic.

City of Bells starts out with somebody gone missing, and since the only other book of hers I've read was a murder mystery, some part of my brain thought I was headed into a mystery novel, but so far this is much more about the characters. I only read a bit at night, so it's been slow going, and I still haven't found out whether or not something bad happened to the person who went missing. I think I'd enjoy it a tiny bit more if my own brain would shut up and just let me enjoy the story as written.

Iím trying to read The Giver of Stars by Jojo Moyes, but I donít care for the way she writes. I got Elizabeth Bergís The Confession Club and Christopher McDougallís Running with Sherman, so hope I like those better.

I like some of Jojo Moyes' books more than others. I asked my library to order The Confession Club and hope they get it in soon.

I am reading "The Upside of Falling Down" which is about an American woman who is the only survivor of a plane crash in a small town in Ireland. She has lost her memory and is trying to figure out who she is in the aftermath of the crash. I am enjoying it so far.

Yeah, her books are hit or miss for me. Some I love. Some I hate. Some are somewhere in between.

Sherry - I read the Kindle sample for that book, realized it was around $2 for the Kindle edition, and bought it. I was surprised to see it categorized as a YA (Young Adult) book. I look forward to reading it.

Wow, that is weird that it was categorized as a Young Adult book. I just finished it and enjoyed it very much. I will have to look for more by the author.

My library just got in "The Confession Club" by Elizabeth Berg, so I will pick it up tomorrow.

I'm reading The Night Fire, the new Bosch and Ballard book by Michael Connolley. I'm pretty much inhaling it.

Oh my god - Iím just about to start The Deanís Watch. Iíd never heard of this author until the book showed up in my book club list. Iím very pleased with the choice, based on your description. I could do with ďgentleĒ and ďEnglishĒ right about now. :-)
