What I'm Reading Now
This novel is a delightful surprise from Orson Scott Card, the author of Ender's Game. Imagine an early colonial America where magic is real. This book is worth reading just for the dialogue. First published in 1987, this is the first in Orson Scott Card's Tales of Alvin Maker series.
Oh, if only there was time to go back and catch all the wonderful books I missed over the decades...
