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.

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!

    • Does he run a lot? On hard ground? My ferritin started at 74 and is now 20. My rbc count was normal but showed mild anemia after an 18 hour fast.   I initially also thought it might be due to malabsorption, and it may be, although my gut doesn't show a ton of damage. Coincidentally I started running around  all of this, with A 6 month break in between, and have also recently read that Runners Who log a lot of miles generally are pretty low on ferritin if they don't supplement.  I only do between 6-15 Miles per week.  I eAt a mixed green salad about 5 times a week, red meat a couple times a week, and then a lot of other high iron foods.  lamb stew is a tremendous source of iron, as well as mussels. I am a big fan of garden lights chocolate zucchini muffins as well each mini muffin contains 20% of the daily value.  I Like to eat Two for breakfast with my coffee.  if he stopped eating gluten about a month ago you might still be able to get the blood test done. I'm sure you have read by now that you need to be eating gluten to be tested.  antibody start falling Right away but for some people it takes a long time.   I'm not a doctor but I would think that if you have enough damage to mal absorb iron then it would take a lot longer than just 4 weeks for you to  fix that kind of damage And reabsorb it again.    did they order a total iron binding capacity?  and was the iron panel done while fasting? You don't really need to fast for a ferritin but serum Iron can easily be elevated With food.  Although symptoms vary depending on the individual I have read quite a bit online that When ferritin drops below 40 people can start getting symptomaTic.  so you are likely correct that his feeling better is related to his ferritin level increasing.  giving up gluten means giving up certain nutrients as well. So if he's already vegetarian he needs to really pay close attention to what nutrients he might be missing in his diet now if he's giving up whole grains.  
    • Thank you! I will look into it! 
    • You would honestly think that after you body goes nuts attacking your insides trying to kill the gluten after 2 days of food poisoning yourself with it the damn antibodies would show up in insane levels in your blood Life is not that easy though.
    • Some days I have 3 pieces of bread, other days I just can't handle more than 1.  I had to take a day of gluten rest after the first week.  I felt too aweful. Now I'm almost done with week 2 and I feel like I need another break.  Just so hard to do something to yourself that you know will hurt.  They just don't know how much and for how long.  There was a recent study that looked at gluten challenges in folks actually diagnosed with celiac and some took months to have elevated antibodies.   Just one day at a time.  I hope things go well for you. 
    • Thank you for replying. I think you are right- why take the chance of reinfecting myself with gluten exposure again when ive been trying so hard to rid it from my life?  I just read some interesting articles on Sjogrens Syndrome and gluten sensitivity and that they are related so that may answer one of my questions. Your symptoms took over a year to resolve?! Holy moly.. I fear that is going to be my issue too. Are you feeling better now?
