I have been working once again on "What Color is Your Parachute, 2014," since I really do need to find a part-time job.
Also, "What Your Kindergartener Needs to Know," which I checked out on Overdrive because I am now volunteering every Wednesday morning at the elementary school that's not far from my house. I am assisting some of the kindergarten students with their sight recognition words.

On a whim, I picked up a Maeve Binchy novel from the library--her last one, A Week in Winter. It's so light and funny and sweet--I'm thoroughly enjoying it!

I'm finally reading a thriller by Preston and Child, Gideon's Sword--which introduces a new character. I was glad to see they listed their books in chronological order, and mentioned most are stand-alones, but also linked those that should be read in sequence. I'll check and see which ones my library has.

I just finished Shadow Spell, the 2nd in the Cousins O'Dwyer trilogy. This one came out on Tuesday, the first--Dark Witch--in late October or early November, so the third--Blood Magick--will probably come out in June or July.

Calculated In Death by JD Robb. (aka Nora Roberts) It released last week. I have a few authors I buy and this is one of them. Lt. Eve Dallas is a strong female character. And I enjoy a good futuristic crime drama.

I joined a small citizens' advisory group working on our small city's government's use of social media to better connect with our citizens. We read and discussed a book called, "Citizenville." I turned mine back in at the library, and don't remember the author's name. He had been mayor of San Francisco, and then Lieutenant Governor of CA. The book is ~2 yrs old, but already some of it is out of date.

Oooo! I read "Ocean at the end of the Lane" by Neil Giaman recently. Very very good short novel (some of it is terrifying and yet beautifully worded) a big maiden, mother crone theme in it!!

I also just read "the Night Guest" by Fiona McFarlane also excellent but also a little disturbing and thought provoking.

About to start my 3rd Nikki Heat novel by "Richard Castle" I don't know who the ghost writer is. They are fun. I'm into the 4th season of Castle on DVD, and I love the characters and relationships. Kate's dealing with the trauma of being shot & her sessions with a therapist (Michael Dorn, aka Commander Worf from Deep Space Nine; also the new captain is Penny Johnson, who as Kasidy Yates married Captain Sisko on DS9) are pretty profound. Yes, the show is funny a lot of the time, but still touches my heart.

I've just finished reading an old book, Fire Upon the Earth, the Story of the Christian Church, by Norman F. Langford, copyright 1950. It's actually quite a lot about the Protestant Reformation. My mother really liked it, me not so much.

I can never narrow it down to just one book....right now I'm reading "Lies My Teacher Told Me" by James W. Lowen--absolutely fascinating and changing my perceptions considerably;
"The Year 1000" about what life was like then--have just begun so have no comment to make yet--and "Spiritual Ecology, The Cry of The Earth" which I have also just begun.

While signing up for another season of Castle DVDs through the library, I discovered novels by "Richard Castle"--both his Derek (sp?) Storm and Nikki Heat series. I'm half through the first of the latter series, Heat Wave, which includes the dedication mentioned in the show, and sports a photo of Nathan Fillion as Castle on the back. I don't know who the ghost writer is, but it's quite fun. I have another couple on order with the library. This one is a short, quick read, too--just what I need with the work drama going on.

For fun, the Harry Potter books; I'm ~ 2/3 through Goblet of Fire (they've completed the 2nd Triwizard task). I just got How Full Is Your Bucket? from the library. I read a copy at work, but want to review. It's short and easy to read, and has implications far beyond work.

Who's the author on that, Eva?

I returned Inferno to the library without getting far into it. Too violent and gross for my taste. I may have appreciated the mythology of the Buffyverse, which included both Hell and Heavenly dimensions, but I don't need repeated sensory descriptions of people in eternal agony and torment. Ick!

Thoroughly enjoying my rereading of the Harry Potter series. I am a little bit into The Prisoner of Azkaban--my favorite of the first 6.

I've started reading the prequals to the grimm diaries. It's a twist on the characters from grimms fairy tales. It makes most of our story book characters immortals that are cursed to a 100 years sleep, can wake for a short time and then are sent back to a dream world.

Haven't read inferno and Dark witch is on my kindle list. I'm currently reading house of Hades. I love the heros of Olympus books. This one "features" my own matron Hecate so we'll see if he does her justice.

The celtic lore book, I had to get it off Amazon as my local bookstore really has a SMALL stock of non christian religious books. Seriously Christianity has a 3 aisles section everyone else is crammed into one aisle.

I see crows all over the place! I haven't found that book yet. I finished Dark Witch, the brand new Nora Roberts book that I picked up Tuesday night after work. Looking forward to the 2 sequels, though it will be months before they come out.

Got the newest Dan Brown novel from the library finally--Inferno. I really liked The DaVinci Code and Angels & Demons by him.

The Darling Dahlias and the Texas Star was lots of fun. I finished a short but great "business" book today--How Full Is Your Bucket? about combatting negativity in the workplace and in your life and interactions. Very profound and practical. I'm hoping my supervisor will popularize it in our unit, and then I'd like to introduce it into some of our wellness work. I love the research that proves positive emotions increase longevity and productivity!

The new James Rollins was *great*! A comment by one of the team about a previous Arctic adventure made me decide to re-read an earlier stand-alone novel of his--Ice Hunt, which was the first novel of his I read, and turned me into an instant fan. It is SO exciting (even for the severalth time), and he writes very well, with not just heart-pounding action, but people you care about as well. (I often say Rollins "writes like a woman" in that his characters--male and female--are richly drawn and keep evolving.)

I started reading Lame Deer Seeker of Visions, then I'm on to Black Elk Speaks, actually I'm rereading these two books, followed by Sycamore Lane by John Grisham which is due to be released later this month sometime around the 22nd. It's his latest book and it has all those characters from A Time to Kill, I just can't wait to see what Harry Rex Vonner is up to now.

On the non-fiction front, 8 Keys to Safe Trauma Recovery. I've been getting so much out of the library copy, that I'm buying it from Amazon for my inner work streak reward!

On the fiction (just for fun) front, just finished the 3rd Darling Dahlias novel (cozy mysteries) set in Depression-era Alabama by Susan Wittig Albert, who also writes the China Bayles mysteries set in Pecan Springs, Texas. She creates a great sense of time & place. I'm way down the list to get her 4th Dahlia book (brand new) from the library.

Today I picked up and began the newest James Rollins thriller (always amazing tapestries of cutting edge science, history, metaphysics), The Eye of God, in his Sigma series.

Blessed Be, Amanda

I have just started Poison Study by Maria V Snyder

This takes place in a world that forbids the practice of magic and they control Ixia through the Code of Behaviour
The main character is Yelena who was imprisoned for murder and will be executed unless she takes the postion of Food taster to the Commander of Ixia.
She takes the position and is trained to recognise different poisons the first of which she drinks and needs to have the antidote daily making it impossible for her to escape otherwise she will die in 48 hours. You slowly learn about her previous life at the hands of General Brazell and his evil son Reyad. The reason why she commits murder is going to be revealed but I have not got that far yet.
It is an easy read and refreshing to have a heorine that is fighting to be herself.
I have the other two books as well Magic Study and Fire Study.

Interesting Deby I may have to put that on my wish list.

I've started Thankless in death on the fiction front and in non-fiction I'm reading The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success.

found this overview online.... this may help...
( I think ALL women should have a copy... I reread all the time)

Circle of Stones ~ Judith Duerik

Overview
This is the tenth anniversary edition of the classic best seller for women seeking their sacred connections. Long ago before the patriarchal period, in many places on Earth, the Goddess was worshipped. Circle of Stones draws us into a meditative experience of the lost Feminine and creates a space for us to consider our present lives from the eyes of women's ancient culture and ritual. Incorporating the most ancient symbol of spirituality-the circle of stones-Duerk weaves stories, dreams, and visions of women to lead each reader into a personal yet archetypal journey, posing the reflective question, "How might your life have been different if ...?"

Partway through Rose Harbor in Bloom now.

On the non-fiction front, I'm reading a recommendation of my therapist, Friendships Don't Just Happen.

I picked up the newest Debbie Macomber hardcover, but am rereading the first book in the series, The Inn at Rose Harbor, before reading the sequel. It takes place in Cedar Cove, the community in her 15-book series that is the basis of a new series on the Hallmark channel. I saw the first episode that my sister recorded. (I have to get that cable box set p so I can see real-time TV again!)

Hear, hear, Anni--I totally inhaled the 3 episodes on Disc 2! Just enjoying it so much.

And Eva, I hope Bug enjoys her first Harry book--I adore the series and have been contemplating rereading the 7 volumes yet again.

I just finished a sometimes frothy novel, Island Girls, by Hot Flash Club author Nancy Thayer, which also examines family & romantic relationships with some poignancy.

Finally moved up the line and checked out The Tapping Solution by Nick Ortner, a book on EFT which is proving to be entertaining and informative. I may end up getting my own, but I always like to check out a library copy before plunking down money for something that may not be that helpful.

Finishing up out of oz, then starting Calculated in Death by JD Robb for evening reading. I'm pulling out Ellen Durgan's Natural Witchery for day time reading. And I've started reading Harry potter and the Sorcerers Stone with Bug. She asked to read one of my books and this is what she chose (proud mommy moment that she wants a chapter book!)

Right now I'm re-reading Women's Spirituality by Diane Stein. I read it when I first started my pagan path, and off and on over the years. When I moved to AR I gave away my copy and just this year was able to locate a used copy. She's such a good writer.

My next book is The Help. I love that movie, especially the pie scenes.

I never miss the Abbey. It's the "Everybody sit down, shut up, goes somewhere, or find something to do" show.

I've seen parts 1 and 2, and I *love* it! The human drama is mesmerizing and moving. I can't wait for the next disc to arrive!

Amanda Alayna is the Downtown Abby Expert. She's been watching it from the beginning. I never have made time for it though. I wonder if the library will get the series on DVD? HUM.....

Puma, have you ever read the Kate Shugak mysteries by Dana Stabenow? They are set up in the Alaskan bush. They are very good, though sometimes dark. One went back in history to the life of one of the good time girls.

This is a what I'm watching: After watching the 3 seasons of Leverage available on Blockbuster online (love the show!), I've just begun Downtown Abbey from PBS. No wonder it was so popular! Fascinating soap opera upstairs and downstairs, with the sinking of the Titanic and the politics of gender and inheritance thrown in.

I love this series and have them all this is the last one and I am loving it.
A society that is apart from the rest of the world and yet has a link to it. They honour the God and Goddess and celebrate all the Sabbats.
There are those who have various gifts that they use and draw on the energy of the Earth and Moon. The Leader of the Pagan Community is called a Magus and there are all kinds of things that happen that keep your interest and wanting to know happens to the main characters and some of the others as well. A complex story that is well told and at times you wish there was such a place.

Out of Oz is good so far. But you have to commit to stick with it until after the first 100 pages. If you haven't read A Lion Among Men, you might want to see that one before Out of OZ. The story refers back to memories of Liir, Nor (Illanora), and Burr (The Cowardly Lion) And the memories come from events in A Lion Among Men.

One more bedside goody that I'm currently reading is "Good Time Girls of the Alaskan Yukon Gold Rush". As the title infers, it's the historical journey of the prostitutes and other "disreputable" women who joined the gold rush in Alaska and the Yukon.....Fascinating!

I am me. I am who I'm meant to be.
I am my past, present and who I want to be.
I'm not anyone, I am all three.
I'm a work in progress, a destiny.

So wonderful to find crones that devour the same sort of literature that I do. My family was/ and still is avid OZ readers and my sister has turned me onto Maguire's books. Currently reading Confessions of an Ugly Stepsister and have also read Son of a Witch. I think I'll check my sister's collection to see if she has Out of Oz...sounds bewitching...
