    Thanks for the birthday goodie!! I'm officially a senior now -- 65. I'm the youngest sibling in my blended family, though, so I'm always young. LOL

    I have enjoyed watching your countdown to retirement, it just reaffirms that I did the right thing because I remember those feelings of relief as the finish line came in sight.

    If you like Jane Austen I think you would like Edith Wharton. A lot of us got a bad impression of her in high school when we had to read Ethan Frome, which is boring and totally unrepresentative of her work. If you ever do try her, my absolute favorite is The House of Mirth.

    Finished 'She Walks These Hills' and starting into 'Tom Dooley' - I'm so glad you turned me on to these books. I used to be such a big reader but I hadn't in a long while, and part of it was just not knowing who to read any more.

    Who are your other favorite authors? Every few years I go back and reread Edith Wharton, who never gets old because her voice and her asides are just so astute, and ditto all the works of Alice Munro. Some of Larry McMurtry but he's uneven, he's written some books I love and some I don't like at all; John Gardner, Julian Barnes, Jhumpa Lahiri. Can't think of the others off the top of my head...
