    Great writer! Did you know he also writes children's books?? Scandinavian crime writers are really getting their due thanks to Larssen. Try Johan Theorin.

    That about sums it up. The author isn't the greatest writer. Reminds me of Stephenie Meyer in that people go nuts for a mediocre product.

    When life offers you a dream so far beyond any of your expectations, itís not reasonable to grieve when it comes to an end.

    I'm reading Ann B Ross's series about Miss Julia - fun light reading. I still use the library and sometimes if I find books on sale buy them. Went to a used book store thinking I could get some bargains books started at $5.50 and up. Go some bargain books at a christian bookstore for $3.97 - so I bought them.

I like Picoult's early books, and Nicolas Sparks, and anything that is not too deep. I won't read Sophie Kinsella too many swear words.

    Who writes the Miss Read series? Sounds like something I would like.

    The Miss Read series is written by: Miss Read and J.S. Goodall...according to Google. I've always just found them under Miss Read.

    My DH originally bought me a Sony ereader. That was an expensive mistake. And Sony was no help. We could not have a pdf on there at the same time as an epub. It's now a paper weight - spent about $300 on that piece of junk. A year later DH bought me a Nook Color and I absolutely love it. Can listen to audio books and also watch Netflix or even check email (although this function is slow). Barnes and Noble has a lot of free books and also authors will sometimes run a special on some of their books for a limited time. The very best feature of the ereader is being able to increase font size - the older I get the harder it is to read small print. And, since it's backlit, whenever DH and I travel and I can't sleep, I can read in bed without disturbing him.

    My favorite authors are Jayne Ann Krents/Jayne Castle/Amanda Quick, Nora Robers/J.D. Robb, Linda Howard, Janet Evanovich, Christine Feehan, Robyn Carr, Carla Neggars, Janet Chapman, Sandra Brown, Susan Mallery, Linda Lael Miller, Christina Dodd, Anne McCaffrey, J. K. Rowling, Judi McCoy (dogwalker mysteries).

    Well, I officially feel way less grown up now!!! The book I just started this morning is the Mark of Athena by Rick Riordan. I am a huge Percy Jackson fan and his newest series is really good too. I wasn't a huge fan of his Kane series however. Other than that I spend most of my time in the sci fi/Fantasy or children's sections of barnes and noble. . I personally don't like the whole e-reader thing, but my husband does, and I am going to use it soon cause he got the sherlock holmes series free from Amazon. I have a few books from my favorite authors coming out over the next two months so huzzah for that!!! .

    I do enjoy a few mysteries, I love Victoria Thompson, Anne Perry, and Tess Gerritsen. I have also gotten into the Cadfael series with Derek Jacobi. It's based of books by Ellis Peters so I'm gonna try those out too.

    For a quick feel good book where there's always a happy ending I usually grab a romance. Though I have enjoyed a few books by Sarah Addison Allen recently. Sugar Queen and Garden Spells were pretty cute. I do enjoy Clive Cussler as well. Though with fall well under way I feel the need to break out my Anne of Green Gables series again. Those ones never get old.
