    Just finished re-reading the Earlene Fowler series of Benni Harper mysteries, starting out with "Fool's Puzzle" and ending with "Broken Dishes". Her titles are all quilt block names. I had read them years ago, and although I remembered all the characters, I had forgotten some of the plots and the outcome, so I enjoyed them again. I am now reading a series by James Doss. I have read the Elm Creek series too. Jan Karon is one of my favorite authors, and my husband collects hundreds of misc. books by top selling authors, so I am never out of books to read. Happy reading my quilting friends. Both are GOOD for us!! '-)

    But unfortunately due to school I don't have time to read, because all I ever do is read for school (one of the many perks of being a history major haha). But for school I've been reading (excluding actual textbooks) "The Holocaust" by Donald L. Niewyk, "War and Genocide" by Doris L. Bergen, "China in the Twentieth Century" by Paul Bailey, "Origins of the Chinese Revolution" by Lucien Bianco, and this weekend I'm going to have to start to read "Recollections of the Revolution of 1911" by Wu Yuzhang. And like I said this isn't even all of it...not even close.
    LOVED "The Kite Runner"!! Outstanding read.

    A Step of Faith comes out in about four months. When it does I will put in a request at the library. I have read the other three Walk books and they are absolutely excellent. If you read Richard Paul Evans, it is best to start at his very first book. I did it like that and then I couldn't wait until the next one and the next one and the next one! I also like Nicholas Sparks, Earlene Fowler, all of them. Edie

    This is a good thread. My book club just finished "Ahab's Wife" and we all agreed it's one of the best books we have read.

    I download lots of free books to my Kindle. All are good so far but they are part one books to get you to buy the next one.
    Still prefer paper books and my favorites are the People books by Gear and O'Neal Gear. They are about North American Indians of the past. Since the authors are archaologists they have the facts to write fiction stories.
    I read alot and have had to make a list of all my reads to keep track so I dont buy the same book again.
    Also love the Lee Child books about Jack Reacher.

    A broad range of interests here! I am reading Wolf Hall by Hilary Mantel and really enjoying it. It is not an easy read (complicated story with lots of subplots) but the language is so evocative- her characters really come alive and the historical setting is right up my street! It is also surprisingly funny- she has a fabulous sense of timing in some of the dialogue.

    Re-reading "Ayn Rand." Read "Tootle" each morning to my grandson. "Tootle" most relaxing and more fun!

    I like mystery/adventure books with female heros! Tricia Fields has a female Chief of Police in her book The Territory, and has a new one coming out in early March, called Scratchgravel Road, according to Amazon.
