Now reading Minding Frankie by Maeve Binchy. Have always loved her books and think this is the only one of her's I haven't read. Found it in paperback the other day so bought it. Only a few chapters into it so far, but it's as good as all her others.

I watched the tv mini series The Pillars of the Earth on REELZ channel and loved it, so I downloaded the book for my Kindle. I'm hoping the book is as good as the mini-series. The author is Ken Follett, has anyone read this book ? I think it was written in the late 80s. Thanks for any input. Tricia

My husband has read that book..Pillars of the Earth..and he feels it's the best book of all time!
I've not read it but his daughter has. Took her a while to get thru it, but she did. Don't think she felt the same though.

I read this book years ago when it was first published - I am a big fan of Ken Follett - and I loved it.

I also watched the mini-series with my husband, who thought it was fabulous. I thought the mini-series was OK, but nowhere near as good as the book. But I always fault movies and mini-series for the fact that they can never cover the full depth and breadth of the book! Enjoy!!

If you liked Pillars of the Earth then you'll like World Without End too. It takes place in the same setting but two centuries later. Fantastic book that I highly recommend.

I'm reading "Death Comes to Pemberley" by P.D.James. It's sort of a sequel to Pride and Prejudice, and I'm loving it! Here's a description from NPR: http://www.npr.org/2011/11/29/142848012/pride-and-prejudice-meets-clue-at-pemberley

I didn't realize that P.D.James is 91! I've read a couple of her books and intend to read some more.

Is that PD's newest book? I saw she had a new one out... I've only ready one of her books -- Death in Holy Orders -- but I really enjoyed it, and want to read more...

If PD is still writing at age 91, then I guess there's hope for me.
