No entertainment is so cheap as reading, nor any pleasure so lasting. ~Mary Wortley Montagu
I'm in nineteenth century America. I'm in the midst of the political intrigue surrounding Andrew Jackson and his presidency. Lots of things surprised me.
I am in the Australian bush country in the quaint town of Karakarook with some quirky characters in The Idea of Perfection by Kate Grenville. I'm three quarters of the way through and I absolutely adore this book. Grenville has developed these characters in such vivid detail that you know what they'll say almost before you read it on the page. Great stuff.

I just started a book set in Texas and it has captured my interest. I needed that - I've been starting several novels and only made it a chapter or two when I decided I wasn't in the mood for it. My Texas book is The Story of Forgetting.
