      As a 40+ perimenopausal woman, I’ve found a semblance of comfort and relaxation with the Michael Scott series, “The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel.”  For any who have read the Harry Potter books (yes, I have; all of them), Flamel was mentioned in the second book (I think).  

      I graduated from college 4 years ago and, being on a steady diet of textbooks, it took me 2 years to convince myself that it was okay to read something else.  Why Harry Potter and Nicholas Flamel, I haven’t a clue.  Not my usual style but they’ve made for a good read.

      Has anyone read these?

        • I’ve read, and own all the Harry Potter books.  Started out buying them for my then 5th grade daughter and of course I always read whatever my kids were reading because how else do I know if it’s fit to read?  And how else can you discuss it?  So, I got hooked on Harry Potter.  Read them all several times (like every time a new book came out)

          I’ll have to see if I can find the Nicholas Flamel one.  

           I hate that we don’t have a decent library anywhere near.  I have to drive 56 miles (one way) to get to a decent library and I can’t afford to do that very often.

        • I love the Harry Potter books, and the Sword of Truth by Goodkind are very good.  

          For me I love the Avalon books.  Mist of Avalon, Priestess of Avalon, Ravens of Avalon, etc.  There are so many of them I forget all the names.  I can relate to the heroins in the books and learn a bit of history also.
