ETA - Please go to the other November - What Are You Reading? thread that Erika started. We'll let this one fade away. 

I'm still working on When Christ And His Saints Slept by Sharon Kay Penman and am enjoying it very much!  This month I'm definitely thankful to SKP for writing such wonderful books!

I already started a thread for this here.  Sorry if I stole your thunder!

I am soooo thankful not to be reading Echo in the Bone any longer.

K, we'll just let this thread die away.  LOL!  I'll amend my first post to direct others to Erika's thread.  But before I let this one go, Cheryl - Echo in the Bone was really that bad?

Yes, It sure was for me and I was/am still a big fan of her first 4 books.   The last quarter of the book redeems it a little, but just a little.  I know others have really liked it.  So far I would have to rate it as my worst H/F read for the year.

Cheryl - Aaack!  No good.  I've got the first three or four Gabaldons on my bookshelf and hope to start them (and read the series consecutively) in the new year. I've heard more than once that really after the 3rd or 4th book, the other books in the series aren't as good.  Maybe I'll just read the 3 or 4 that I have and call it good.  Echo in the Bone is what?  The 7th book in the series?

Yes, Echo is the 7th book in the series.  I think they start to go downhill after Drums of Autumn.  The first 4 are very good and I think you would like them,  By the way, love the photo!

Cheryl - Thanks!  I'll keep that in mind.  Thanks for liking my avatar.  That was me on Halloween. Probably won't leave it up for long, but I like seeing other people's faces around here, so maybe some people would like to see mine.  I miss not having faces to go with names!  LOL!
