    Does anyone read his books?
    I just got his newest...The Last Song.
    Power went out today for about 5 hours, so I decided I'd just curl up on the couch and start it.
    As always, it's one of those that you cannot put down!! I only have 100 pages to go, but I HAD to put it down to get some e-mailing done and I need to get back into the pit, I mean sewing room.

    Bev, you'd like his books, I think.
    He's also done Nights in Rodanthe. That was good.

    bev, I have been into James Patterson for some years now. Which ones are you reading? I have loved reading the Alex Cross series and the Womens Murder club series.

    Terri--thanks for the book review. I like his books too.

    Bev---I also read Debbie Macomber. I like her Cedar Cove series and the series about the yarn shop. I feel like I know that area of Washington and I have never been there!!!

    I like Nicholas Sparks and James Patterson. My DD and I have to compare notes so we both don't end up buying the same books. We share.
