    It's a tough call in some situations, especially when there is no recognized effective treatment. But then you have situations such as Steven Job's who had a treatable form of pancreatic cancer, did not even attempt it but went off looking for nostrums, and died a painful death.

    I've just finished reading Scott Lynch's Red Sail Under Red Skies, the second book in the Locke Lamora series...what an adventure! I would certainly recommend it to those who like to get caught up in a fast-paced story. The second book was 600+ pages. The story is set in a fictitious world but all the people in the series are humans...so I guess it still belongs to the fantasy fiction genre. The first book in the series is called The Lies of Locke Lamora.

    Ex's reasoning had me shaking my head. After 40+ years of smoking, no exercise and not paying attention to what he ate, he didn't want to "abuse" his body with chemo. On the plus side he was comfortable until the last couple of weeks and then his docs let morphine take over. My library doesn't have the book you mentioned so I'll look for it online.

    Just read "Iron Wyrm" by Lilith Saintcrow. This is an alternate universe book, set in England - Brittania in the book - where magic works. It kind of plunges you into the world without a lot of explanation (first book in what I understand will be a series), but you catch on fast enough. The queen is the embodiment ("vessel") of Brittania, which is ages old, the vessel is a young woman. It was quite intriguing.

    I've read quite a bit of Lilith Saintcrow (many of her books are free for the Nook) and enjoy her writing. I'll look for this one today. Thanks!

    I read the Princess of Nowhere by Prince Lorenzo Borghese.

    It's a true tale of Princess Pauline, sister of Napoleon, who marries Prince Camillo Borghese. They have a torrid love affair, which ended in a long separation, but not a legal divorce. Part of the story also focuses on a girl named Sophie, who happens to be both the ward and cousin of Napolean and he makes Princess Pauline her legal gaurdian.

    Interestingly enough, the author is a descendant of Prince Camillo's brother (Prince Camillo and Pauline never had any legitimate children together, so the title went to his younger brother). The author also happened to have been on The Bachelor in 2006.

    "On the Noodle Road" by Jen Lin-Liu - interesting nonfiction book about a Chinese American woman living in China with her American husband, who decides to travel the Silk Road, tracing noodles through the cuisines along the road.A lot of self-discovery along the way, examination of the role of women in various contemporary cultures. Some hair-raising stories, some sad stories, some inspiring stories. There are some recipes from the various cuisines, but really the story is the thing.

    Just finished "Do You Believe in Magic?: the sense and nonsense of alternative medicine" by Paul A Offit, MD. Very interesting, with indictments of both Oprah and Dr Oz for popularizing unproven and sometimes hazardous theories.


    duonyte, I also found this book an interesting read...Dr Offit seemed to stand on solid ground, citing scientific studies to back up his statements. Reading this book makes you shake your head when you think about the influence some people have over others.

    I've read The Soul of All Living Creatures: What Animals Can Teach Us About Being Human by Vint Virga. Not quite what I was expecting, but I enjoyed reading it.

    Why Mermaids Sing, Where Serpents Sleep and What Remains of Heaven by C. S. Harris, all in the continuing Sebastian St. Cyr mystery series set in England in the early 1800s. I love this series and still have 3 more books to read before I catch up to the author writing them.

    Little Altars Everywhere by Rebecca Wells (same author as Ya Ya Sisterhood) was a decent read.

    The Firebird by Susanna Kearsley. I love this author and was glad to see she'd written another book. I'm drawn to stories that go back and forth between present and past. I'd recommend this one.

    Raven Flight by Juliet Marillier. Tagged as a YA (young adult) series but I would wonder about that with the descriptive violence the book contains. Jm is one of my favorite authors and fantasy fiction my favorite genre so I'm enjoying the series.

    I thought I might start a new urban fantasy series by Carrie Vaughn. The first book is titled Kitty and the Midnight Hour. Urban fantasies take place on earth but feature characters which are werewolves, vampires etc. I didn't particularly like the way this author portrays them so I won't be continuing the series.

    I've started by haven't finished The Light in the Ruins by Chris Bojhalian.

    I didn't finish reading Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell. I found it too slow-paced.

    Just finished "Wool" a self-published e-book by Hugh Howey. He is writing a series of them, post apocalyptic science fiction about people who live in self-contained societies in fifty huge underground silos and have no idea any others even exist, and no idea about their history or how this all came about. The air is so toxic that being sent outside to clean the windows/portholes/lenses on the suface is a death sentence and the worst possible punishment. It was hard getting started, as one character after another was getting killed off, but it finally settled down and became a pretty good read, with a young woman protagonist. Not sure if I'll read any others.
    Currently reading "As Always, Julia", the letters between Julia Child and Avis DeVoto. Enjoying this very much, misspellings and all.
    Just pre-ordered the Kindle version of "Doctor Sleep", Stephen King's sequel to "The Shining", due out next week.

    Oh, Zeldaz, thanks for that heads up!! If there's a new Stephen King I must ask our (tiiiiny) local bookshop to order it for me.

    I'm reading "Cocktail Hour under the Tree of Forgetfulness" by Alexandra Fuller. (Published by Simon & Schuster).

    It's a memoir of (white) lives lived in Zambia and Kenya, very well written and so far sooo funny -- but according to the blurb on the back it does not stay funny ... I'll see.

    Alexandra Fuller also wrote "Let's not Go to the Dogs Tonight", which was a bestseller (but I haven't read it yet).

    It would be nice if all authors would issue a printable list (in reading order) of all their series...
