Reading....

at the beginning of summer I re-read a favorite book, The Thorn Birds, by Colleen McCullough.... and really enjoyed it. I first read it as a teenager... and of course, there was the mini-series way back then. Over the last few weeks I have been reading more of her books... I just finished Angel, and I loved it. What a quirky, heartwarming story. I also read The Ladies of Missalonghi before that... and that book was also quirky. Colleen really has a wonderful gift. I am going to continue with her books for a while, as I like her style of writing. I didn't realize that she had been writing entertaining stories for so many years - off to the library today to find another of her treasures.

Thanks for the reminder about that book and the others. I ready it as well in my younger days and enjoyed it, and would enjoy reading it again.

Thorn Birds is one of my favorite books - I am glad you mentioned it in your blog and I am going to check out my library as well. I know I have read at least one other of her books but it was quite some time ago.

I loved the movie too. Shirley

'The Ladies of Missalonghi' is a delight! Colleen McCullough has also written a highly-regarded series of books set in Ancient Rome.

I remember enjoying reading The Thorn Birds too years ago. I had forgotten all about it. Now you have reminded me about it I think I will look out for a copy and read it again.
