I like most of the ones you all read. One that I like very much is Tess Gerritsen's Rizzoli & Isles novels. I also like the T V shows even though they don't follow the books to closely. I like Lisa Jackson, Iris Johansen, Catherine Coulter and
Tami Hoag. Lisa Jackson writes with her sister Nancy Bush sometime and they are good also Nancy's books I read sometime also.

The Clare Ferguson/Russ Van Alstyne series by Julie Spencer-Fleming are entertaining---mystery, romance and comedy combined. For laugh out loud---the Stephanie Plum Series by Janet Evanovich. I read about anything I get into my hands.

I am reading the last of Ann Perry's Thomas and Charlotte Pitt's murder mystery series set in Victorian
England and also Ann Perry's series of murder on the highlands. I recommend both series.

Right now I am reading The Martian by Andy Weir. My favorite type of book is Science Fiction. I have the whole series of Dune by Frank Herbert, the complete Foundation series by Asimov. I also love the Harry Potter series. Having said that, I also love Erlene Fowler, Jennifer Chiaverini, Monica Ferris, and Lillian Jackson Braun.

Loved all of the "The cat Who...." Stories...actually have all of them in my "library"....... The author passed, I think last year, so no more Cat......

started led out liking mysteries, read all of Sherlock Holmes, now really like historical fiction...Elizabethan, Victorian...do not like romantic, cutesy, can't get into sci-fi - not even those movies, like Star Wars..........more drama, adventure and mystery....

anyone tried the Audibles? Saw commercial on tv..is this the "new" name for audiobooks.....

I haven't heard of them yet Geri. I will google them and find out.
I go to the library and check out audiobooks for free.
I listen while i'm in my car. The drive to work just isn't the same without a good book
to listen too. We use them on long road trips too.
I think audiobooks are the neatest thing since sliced bread.

recently read "Quilt of Souls " by Phyllis Lawson. A true story about being sent to Livingston Al to live with grandparents she didn't know, and all the stories of the deceased people whose cloths were made into a quilt.
I got to meet her and touch the quilt.
her book can be ordered on Amazon.
Its a riveting story.
