I know this is off topic, but I have to say it:

Your dog has the most adorable face! OMG, what a doll!

That dog is an absolute cutie! I've been wondering what to use for my profile pic and now I think I'll try to get a photo of our Border Terrier. If I can get him to sit still. He's not big on getting his photo taken.

And back on topic...I just finished LOST ON PLANET CHINA by J. Marteen Troost which was hysterical and oh so true for those of us who have lived in China! I highly recommend it.

Also just watched TINKER, TAILOR, SOLDIER, SPY (the new version with Gary Oldman as Smiley.) Well done but a little slow...plus the early 1970s were just not a visually pleasing time in terms of clothes/hairstyles!

Reading anything by Daphne deMaurier I can get my hands on. She wrote "Rebecca", "My Cousin Rachel", "The House on the Strand". Absolutely brilliant.

Loved Rebecca. I used to teach a course called "Mystery and Detective Fiction" and that book was on the reading list. GREAT novel.

Are you serious? Mystery and Detective fiction is my favourite genre in books. Especially British (i.e. Agatha Christie). You must know all about her, Ngaio Marsh, Erle Stanley Garner, Rex Stout, Anne Perry...

It's been a while, but in addition to that novel, we read Turn of the Screw by Henry James, some short stories by Christie, Poe, Lord Dunsany, Roald Dahl; ...what else? oh, the Moonstone by Wilkie Collins, Other Voices, Other Rooms, can't recall the rest. It was a fun course!

Oh, isn't Henry James awesome? Same with Wilkie Collins - I have many of his books on my Kobo.

Have you read Tana French? She's Irish and her books, so far, are in the police procedural vein but they are just sooooo Irish. In order they are: IN THE WOODS, THE LIKENESS, FAITHFUL PLACE. They are a loosely linked trilogy. I think my favorite was THE LIKENESS and then IN THE WOODS and FAITHFUL PLACE. The characters and stories really got into my head! I think she's got a new one coming out.

Also just discovered Kate Atkinson...I picked up STARTED EARLY, TOOK MY DOG from my book club (we've got a 'library' and share books) and it was a great read. Apparently the main character in that book is featured in other novels. I am not sure they are published in the States...if not, I will have to order from Book Depository (thank goodness they have free shipping to the States!)

Am going to see if I can find Tana French in our library. I have not read her but I would like to! Am glad they are Irish because my favourite books are British - usually written long ago but I am game to her...

I have to warn you the books are not at all like American mysteries...I know a woman (American) who read IN THE WOODS and hated (more like HATED!!!!) the ending with a passion because it was not at all a typical American mystery ending. I found it very very appropriate and actually liked how the author did it. Not giving anything away by saying this...read the book, you'll understand. :)

That's ok - I prefer British over any other mysteries (i.e. Daphne DuMaurier, Agatha Christie). Plus I am not American, I am Canadian. :P Intriguing endings are great. There are many of those in the Anne Perry Victorian mysteries, too.

You'll do fine with it most likely. I also love DuMaurier; might have to try Christie again as I was a huge fan as a teenager but haven't even looked at any of her books in over 20 years. Gasp...I am getting old!!! :o

I'm not familiar with Anne Perry and will have to check those out. Currently listening to a Ruth Rendell on audiobook, THE TREE OF HANDS. Well-done but sort of a downer (hey, not like Rendell writes uplifting happy books, right?!?!) I think that combined with the cold and rain we've been having have not been helping my mood. I need to move to something light and frivolous until the sun comes out.

Wow, I knew the name Anne Perry sounded familiar...she's one of the girls from the Parker-Hulme Murder!

Any recommendations from her extremely long list of published titles?

Enjoyed seeing all your interests!

I'm catching up on some "oldies" from TV: Dick van Dyke Show, Quantum Leap, and Magnum PI.

I have a long list of books waiting. Currently reading "Bleak House" by Charles Dickens. My first-ever Dickens book besides "A Christmas Carol". I'm loving it. I thought Dickens would be totally stuffy and serious, but he has a sense of humor that continues to surprise.

Next up is a trio of Shirly Jackson books, "Life Among the Savages", "The Haunting of Hill House", and "We Have Always Lived in the Castle".

I adore Dickens and have read many. I think "Bleak House" is one of my favourites. His writing style is pleasing, as is his sense of humour as you mention.

Just finished "We Have Always Lived in the Castle". Love Shirley Jackson, too.

Have you tried Daphne DuMaurier? She is one of the most brilliant authors ever in my opinion (and I read at least 250 books per year). My favourites are "Rebecca", "My Cousin Rachel" and "The House on the Strand". Absolutely amazing. These are the books that I cannot put down. I was housesitting when reading "The House on the Strand" last summer and I took it with me cooking, to the bathroom, outside, everywhere. It was that compelling.

Excellent novel.

Oh yes! When I saw you post about her, I meant to comment. I read "Rebecca" and "My Cousin Rachel" and absolutely loved duMaurier but that was a lot of years ago! I think my daughter (English major...she's guiding my reading list, LOL) read "House on the Strand" and liked it. I'll probably re-read "Rebecca" soon, I've been thinking about it for a while.

LOL! Oh yes, Betty is such a charmer! It IS funny how different all those people are yet all so wonderfully likeable!

I am impressed. I could not get through "House on the Strand" -- I gave it a valiant effort but that book just didn't do it for me...

Next up for me is the new Dexter novel, "Double Dexter," -- think the earlier books were better than the last couple AND I'm always having to remind myself of what has happened in the books versus what has happened in the TV series because they are very different at this point!

I really only recognize one of those titles, and that's because I went to see the movie last night! I'm a fantasy reader myself

I'm just finishing the second book in the Genesis of Shannara series. Very good if you're into Terry Brooks, ties two series together, I'm really enjoying it.

Mostly though, I'm a Mercedes Lackey fan. I can not recommend my favorite trilogy enough, which is Magic's Pawn, Magic's Promise and Magic's Price.

I also love Stephen King short stories. Not so much his novels, they're okay but just don't generally have the same level of awesomeness his short stories do.

Edit: As I hit the post button my husband walks up behind me and is like "what does Stephen King have to do with celiac? I'm like he writes horror, and getting a celiac diagnosis is pretty horrifying. DUH!

    • Japan (Tokyo And Kyoto) Gluten Free
      i would  tend to agree with your mom and that comes from more than  30 years in and out of Japan. the  quality of the produce, meat and fish tends to be much better than the US  becsaue it gets to market  much faster and becasue there is a demand  for quality  above the demand for low price.  As it was pointed out, this  has  nothing to do with gluten.    There  are  alot of things you can  eat  in just about any restaurant  but there are things to learn like onigiri -- rice balls,  are seemingly innocent  but  90% of htem contain wheat starch.  most larger  grocery stores and  department store basements  you can  get  gluten free soy sauce. ---  most  chefs still assume that  soy sauce is soy  so never  take anyones  word for it when it comes to soy sauce. Of al the mixed  salads at  family mart, 7-11 and lawsons  only the gobo salad was  safe. good luck    
    • Gluten free backing food
      We are prepared for earthquakes at home, in our car and at work.  That means keeping tins of sardines, gluten-free cereal bars,  SPAM, nuts, chicken, fish, rice, etc. in our earthquake kits.  I have to go through it every three to four months to rotate out some of the foods (e.g. cereal bars).  I mark it in our planner.  It works for us.  Tasty?  Appetizing?  I bet my kid will be thankful to have food to eat in the event of an emergency.  
    • Blood sugar, hunger, celiac
      How much fat are you consuming?  Going lower carb and not adding in fats can make you hungry.   So, do you know that Type 1 diabetes is strongly linked to celiac disease?    I would ask your doctor for a GAD antibodies test to rule out type 1.   https://celiac.org/celiac-disease/celiac disease-and-diabetes/ http://www.celiac.nih.gov/CDandDiabetes.aspx   I basically eat to my meter and that translates to a Low Carb High Fat diet.  Keeps my doctor happy with my lab results! 
    • Lower left abdominal, left pelvic & other random pains
      VERY good point cyclinglady, very good point!!!!
    • Even gluten-free Foods Triggering Reaction After Initial Glutening?
      I was glutened in July.  Badly.  I have NO clue as to what got me.  I suspect two things 1) a gluten free store- brand, product that might have been mis-labeled and 2) a prescription generic medication (contacted the manufacturer to confirm a gluten-free status but got the old liability statement of no guarantees).  Both items were NEVER consumed by my gluten free hubby who acts as my canary.     I probably got glutened again by eating out while on vacation even though I only at at restaurants recommended by other celiacs.  The rest of the time I was at my parent's house and I have a dedicated kitchen there for us.   Who knows?  But I was sick with anxiety, tummy issues, vomiting, the works.  It was strange since anemia was my original symptom and I really did not have tummy issues at the time of my diagnosis.  So, celiac symptoms can evolve at least for me!  Six weeks after my first sign of a glutening, I was tested by my new GI because I was not getting well.  He thought I had SIBO or bile duct issues. I asked for celiac blood testing.    Turns out it was gluten all along!   During my glutening, I became lactose intolerant again, could only eat stewed foods because everything hurt to get through my digestive tract.   I was a basket case for three months.    Did I mention new problems resulting from my glutening?  Hives, itching, vomiting, passing out and tummy aches almost daily.  Anti-histamines helped.    My GP thinks I am her most "allergic" patient.  Except it was more like a histamine intolerance or a mast cell issue not allergies.   Who knows?  The hives eventually resolved as I healed from my glutening.    I refuse to test the two items that were suspect.    No way!    Three months later, I got dairy back.  Six months later I am eating gluten free anything....without any issues.  I also do not take any meds (except for Armour Thyroid) , supplements, eat out and I avoid even processed gluten-free items.  But, I feel great.     I suppose that I will eventually slip up and get glutened again.  But I am working hard not too.  I like feeling well.   So, really look to your diet.  I bet you just keep getting glutened.  Stick to whole foods, follow the FODMAP diet and wait.  Wait.  Wait.
