Thanks, Di. 

I looked it up and you're right it sounds like something I would like. I love reading non-fiction books about WW II. Even though this one is fiction I think I would like it also. I know I've read at least two novels in the past 6 months where the background was WW II - one took place in England and the other in America. I went ahead and added The Ministry of Fear to my Bookbub wishlist so I'll be notified when the price goes down.

Thanks again for the suggestion.

Graham Greene is one of the most extraordinary writers!

He also wrote Our Man in Havana and The Quiet American, also The Heart of the Matter etc.

Travels with my aunt is wonderful and The Comedians is about Haiti and was turned into a famous film as have been other books of his.

I've started a re-read of Mercedes Lackey's Valdemar series. That's currenly 39 books, and 15 anthologies. Book 40 is due out next year. I am reading them in chronological order, rather than publication order, and I've never read them in that order before. I'm currently up to book 17 so will be at it for a while yet.

Weesam, that's a lot of books. Good luck!

Yep, a lot of books. But they are a favourite series, and favourite books are a bit like comfort food. And right now I figure we all need as much comfort as possible.

So glad to find someone else who likes Mercedes Lackey and Valdemar! Have already read twice Beyond - the first in her upcoming story of the founding of Valdemar. The next in the anthologies is Boundaries, and I will be looking forward to reading that one.  

Right now I am re-reading the series by Rita Mae Brown and Sneaky Pie Brown (her cat) about "Harry" Haristeen and her cat and corgi. Love the way the animals help to solve the mysteries.

I loved Beyond. I'm really looking forward to the new book next year and continuing to read about the founding of Valdemar. I have Boundaries already, but I am waiting until I've finished all the main books before reading the anthologies. I'm currently up to The Hills Have Spies, so a long way to go yet.

I don't know Rita Mae Brown, but they sound interesting. May have to check them out. If you like animals solving mysteries, have you read Three Bags Full by Leonie Swann? It's about a flock of sheep who set out to solve the mystery of who murdered their shepherd. I highly recommend it. So much fun.

The last time I posted about the books I was reading was Nov. 18th. At that time, I said I wasn't ready to tackle the second part of the "Theodore Rex" book I had started earlier. So I read one more novel and then I tackled the Teddy Roosevelt's second term as President and finished that. Since then I've read 3 more novels which put me at 48 books for this year and I met my "Good Reads" challenge. Now, that I've done that I can read something longer ... like "The Prince of Tides" by Pat Conroy which is 665 pages. I'm fairly certain I read that book when it was first published (1986) but that's 35 years ago. I remember the general gist of the story but not a lot of the details. So I'm really enjoying it almost like it was a new book to me. The movie with Barbra Streisand and Nick Nolte??? I don't recall that I saw the movie even though it was a huge hit.

Happy reading everyone!
