The Pillars of the Earth – Update

I am 373 pages into this 973 page book and already there’s been a birth, an abandonment, a seduction, a church fire, a political coup, a rape and a decapitation.

Ken Follett’s epic tale is set in the Middle Ages and these people were the original “gangsters”! They were treacherous, ruthless and adhered to a strict caste system.

So far, it has lived up to the hype of being a “page turner”.

M.I.A.

WOW! I have not posted anything in about a week. I have been busy getting another blog up and running and I didn’t realize that it would take up so much of my time. I’m not complaining, just stating a fact. :) In fact, I have been very excited about it.

You see, I am a fan of a few “reality” shows. America’s Next Top Model, Dancing With the Stars, and American Idol. These are the only three that I can stand to watch, the other’s are boring or they provoke a gag reflex. You can say I’m a bit of a Reality TV show snob!! LOL

The blog I have created is American Idol: The Exiles. Check it out when you have a chance!

Also, I have started reading Ken Follett’s “The Pillars of the Earth”. I first heard of it on Oprah; she picked it for her book club. Then a poster on my A.I. blog mentioned it was one of his favorite books. So I have decided to check it out. I’ll let you know my thoughts when I finish.
