    I just finished reading two novels by Erin Morgenstern: 'The Night Circus' and 'The Starless Sea'. Both were good reads about worlds filled with magic. She's a very gifted writer and a great storyteller!

    Apropos that this thread came up just now. I'm engrossed in reading "A Stowaway Ukulele Revealed - Richard Konter and the Byrd Polar Expeditions." I'm finding it to be interesting and entertaining, and full of historical minutiae worth knowing. It also provides a glimpse into the musical world of the early 20th Century. My interest in the book was, of course, piqued by my purchase of a Martin "Konter" Uke.

    'The Witching Hour' by Anne Rice. A very spooky tale! I love Anne Rice's early novels, and I've read this one before, but it was so long ago that it's like I'm reading it for the first time again.

    I may read her Vampire Trilogy again at some point (Interview with the Vampire, The Vampire Lestat, and Queen of the Damned). I remember reading them in my youth at university, and how she brought those characters to life so vividly that I would find myself during the day thinking, "I wonder what the vampires are doing right now?"

    Still reading through the entire line of Terry Brooks pre-Shannara and Shannara books, in order of fictional chronology, not the date of publication. I've read 13 of 32 of the series since the beginning of November, finishing The Scions of Shannara just a few days ago. I'm currently taking a short detour as I read Brooks's short-story anthology, Small Magic.

    I'm currently on a John Grisham reading spree where I go through all of his thrillers in order of publishing. Right now I'm reading "The Runaway Jury", his 7th novel. Love his writing, it's always fast and enthralling.

    John Grisham's novels are like literary crack cocaine. Once you starting reading them, you can't quit!
