Yes, if a book is really good, I read it several times. I've read Gone With the Wind 4 times, and another called Savages I've read 3 times. I feel a little guilty about re-reading a book, though, when I have so many unread books calling to me, lol.  But once I'm into the book, I'm not sorry I chose it again.  I love the premonition feeling I get. Like, as a scene builds, I'll think something like "Oh, yeah, this is where the dogs attack them!"  But maybe that's just me, lol!

Well I goofed on the name of the book, it's "Already Home".    Young divorcee talented sous chef moves back to hometown, opends a retail store selling cookware .   Thinking it's a stand alone book , not in a series... also thiinking Donna suggested it in the last R&W thread but not sure.   Easy reading for sure, but am enjoying it,

I finished (for the 4th time) the book Mine, by Robert McCammon. It is just riveting, even when I know what's going to happen, lol.  Now I'm reading The Lost Symbol, by Dan Brown. It's going slowly at the start.

On tv, I'm watching Castle, Hawaii Five-O, Downton Abbey, Person of Interest, my soap opera (The Young and the Restless), and other shows I can't think of now.  I'm watching past seasons of Breaking Bad, The Walking Dead, Voyager, Deep Space Nine, and Supernatural via streaming.

I finished "think of a number" by John Verdon over the weekend.  I really liked it,, a real page turner.   So I ordered the next to in the series along with 4 other books (2 new authors) ....

Today I started a Susan Mallory book called Almost Home,,,, I'm liking it so far.....

On TV, the season is changing, so Big Bang changed to 2.5 Men and we watched that tonight.  Along with the inauguration ceremonies and parade.. I got all excited watching it.... loved Michelle Obama's purple gloves... super color!   We are also watching a series called White Collar..... really like that.  Is anyone watching that one?
