"Point of Origin" reminds me of my book "R is For Ricochet" which I thought was slow too until the end. Finished it this morning. I have never read anything by Dana Gabaldon. I'd put her on my list but it's already so long. I'm glad you checked out the website. It's really a great site for finding out when those new books are coming out.
Our weather here is cold as well. Only in the low 30's today. My mother who lives about 3 hours from here had snow today. We may get flurries tonight. Our heat kicked in quite a bit last night. There is a warm up coming. I can't wait. Thursday is the first of May but you wouldn't know it. One day we have the windows open and the next day we're freezing again. I sure wouldn't want all those doctor appointments at once but then again now they're over with. Glad you found your notebook. I'm sure it wouldn't have been much fun figuring out those hours again.
I don't remember the first novel I read. I know as a child I read all the Nancy Drew books, Bobbsey Twins, and any book about horses. I loved the Black Stallion books by Walter Farley. When I got older the book that stands out most in my mind was called "The Healing Heart" which was a biography about Ora Ruggles a pioneer occupational therapist. She inspired me so much that I signed up to go in the Air Force and train as an occupational therapist. I passed my written exams and two weeks before my physical I decided to get married instead. The marriage was a mistake and I can't help but wonder how my life would be now had I gone into the Air Force. The funny thing is I'm now afraid of heights. lol
Have a great week and stay warm.
I am reading Jack DuBrul "The Medusa Stone", copyright 2000. page 54 today. OK so far. As you your talking about the early books, I remembered a couple others. "I Married Adventure", Buck was the last name of the author. Then there was "Good Morning Miss Dove", don't remember the author. I met a physical therapist at one of the nursing homes I worked at. She was in her 70's and was one of the earliest physical therapists that trained at Walter Reed in Washington. She was at the start of the program. She was a very interesting lady. When I was in High School I wanted to be a Army nurse, but my school was not accredited and I did not have the Latin and Chemistry classes I needed at the time. But I made it as far as nursing when I was 40 and the admission requirements changed. Were'nt we expected to get married back then. Me too, didn't work out either, but have a wonderful daughter from it and some important life lessons. Still cool here, only one day working outside so far. There was snow on the ground, north and south of us, but only flakes here. Hard frost last night, partly cloudy today. Easier week this week, got to go. I have a cat giving me countless nudges. Have to give her a snack or attention. I usually read something during the commercials unless I've taped it and ff through the commercials. Erla
