A New Toy -- and a book finished

I just completed Haunted Ground by Erin Hart.  I had read about this book and wanted to read it because it involved anthropology and forensics.  I thought it might be like a Kathy Reichs book.  It wasn't.  The book was interesting and informative.  It takes place in Ireland where a human head is found buried in a bog.  Now, a bog is a very special place because remains do not decay like they would if they were just buried in dirt.  There a several colorful characters and the story was interesting as the main character, Cormac, tries to figure out several different mysteries.  The bog lady is one, but there's another mystery of a woman and her child that disappeared several years ago. 

I enjoyed reading the book; it was descriptive and colorful.  But not the suspense and intrigue of a Reichs.

I had to read a lot last night -- I had to finish that book so that I can read a book on my NEW KINDLE!! I have been researching and desiring an ereading device for a while now.  I had just about decided on the Kindle, when in July, they announced a new version.  I took that as a sign from God and took the plunge.  It arrived yesterday, and so far I'm thrilled.  I've loaded one book on it so far, and I find the controls very easy and intuitive.  I'm anxious to get started, but I also have three other books checked out that I want to read!  Where to begin???

  2. Now that you've had your Kindle for a while, any plans to post a review of the Kindle itself?

  3. So far I love it, and I don't use it every day, so I don't feel experienced enough to do a real review. I'll post some more about it after I feel more comfortable.

Thanks for visiting! I LOVE comments! I've received several awards and because of the time involved, I now must make this an "award free" blog.
