Re: What's Everyone Reading?
I feel the same way you do re: books by Nicholas Sparks and Jodi Picoult. And dh refuses to go to a movie based on books by Sparks, calls them crybaby chick flicks.
Right now I'm reading book 3 of a five book series called The Camulod Chronicles by Jack Whyte.
They're about the origin of Camelot/King Arthur. I've enjoyed the premise that Arthur derived from a Roman/British leader who foresaw the collapse of the Roman Empire and built a safe place (Camulod) for his family and friends.
