For the month of December we have a new character showcase, but with some very familiar characters.  Please warmly welcome the gang as the antagonists might see them! :bestsharptooth The character showcase topic for this month can be found here.

Also keep in mind that the next season of the fanfic prompt challenge is now open.  We are doing things a bit differently this season and allowing for people to either fulfill a monthly prompt or a suggested prompt during each month.  I look forward to seeing what you all come up with! :)  The fanfic prompt rules and list of monthly prompts can be found here.

What are you reading?

I am currently reading: The Black Death (Non Fiction) which I got last Saturday through a book fair.  It's really fascinating.

I've just finished the book "Snakehead", the 7th installment in the Alex Rider series.
A truly great book, Anthony Horowitz is a splendid writer!

Quote from: Nick on  
Hercule Poirot's Christmas, by Agatha christie..


What is Hercule Poirot's Christmas like Nick?  Is it any good?  

I've read most of Chritie's Poirot books with the exceptions of Hercule Poirot's Christmas (which the bookstore in Bern never stocks) and Curtain:Hercule Poirot's Last Case.

I hope to read it.  

Perhaps when I go to England (next week), I'll be able to buy it at Waterstones, along with many other books.

I just finished "Teacher Man" by Frank McCourt for a book club.  It was about a man and his experiences as a teacher in many different schools and how he handled the situations.

I'm starting Brian Jacques' third book in the dutchman series, "Voyage of Slaves".
