    A great book series.

    I love to read and just recently stumbled on an Author named Ted Bell. He has a series about a man called Alexander Hawke - Hawke is like James Bond - but I love him even more than Bond - its a great series - There are about 8 books in the series - I started at 1 and now on book 6 - two more to go. Just wanted to let everyone know about this series. The books are spy thrillers with humor and great characters. Take a look - I think you will love it.

    I just finished the Game of Thrones books (5 so far and one on the way). They say his next one in this series will be released sometime in the next year or so. Now I am currently reading the 4th novel in a series of 5 from the Dragon Age
    video game. After that book is finished I will go back to George R.R. Martin's other books:

    Fevre Dreams
    Dreamssongs volumes 1 and 2
    Windhaven

    After that who knows what is next on my reading list.

    Does he come in large print?
    Even that is gettign tiny for me now.
    Thanks for the heads up on a great read.
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    Thank you for the suggestion. I have been rereading the Gabaldon series, Lee Child's Jack Reacher books, and for light reading the Evanovich books. I LOVE to read, almost as much as quilting.

    I'm reading Jan Karon. They are wonderful. I think there are about 7. They belong to a friend, but worth every penny.

    They say his next one won't be out till 2016. But it will be well worth the wait I am sure.
