    I have been reading the Jayne Ann Krentz (contemporary)/Jayne Castle (future - sifi or??)/Amada Quick (historica) Arcane series. They are all by Jayne Ann Krents, but she uses a different name in the different eras. There are a lot of non-series books with the same authors and I have read and enjoyed most of them. I have also enjoyed Norah Roberts, Amanda Carr, Janet Chapman (time travel), Lynn Kurland (time travel), Ann McCaffery (fantasy) and Mercedes Lackey (fantasy) and re-read them freqiently. I too have a kindle and have been introduced (via some free books) to Sharon Gillenwater and Jillian Hart. There are so many others (I read a lot and DH wants me to get rid of the paperbac/hardback books now that I have a kindle)

    With a church group, I have been reading "The Story -- The Bible as the continuing story of God and His people".

    I have been re-reading some old favourites. Dick Francis is a british author whose mystery books always have something to do with racing. Also, Deborah Smith--Where the Heart Is--lovely book set in Southern USA about a girl who champions a boy from 'the wrong side of the tracks' and how their lives eventually come together. I have read several others that she has written but this one continues to be my favourite. Linda Howard, Jennifer Crusie (do NOT read any of her books on an airplane because they will have you eying your seatmates and squirming in your seat!!), Nora Roberts, Sandra Brown--I have a shelf of goto books that always deliver. Thanks for some new authors that I will definitely check out.

    Yankeegirl, if you like history, make sure you've read John Adams, by David McCullough... a little farther back in time is Galileo's Daughter by Dava Sobel...

    Why am I not surprised that so many of us are readers? I was in the book selling business for nearly 20 years. That is one of the few retail businesses where the vast majority of the customers are ever so nice. I do have to admit that the computer does cut down on my reading time and, yes, I still read fisical books whose pages I can turn and flip back to an early part I missed. I have found that the majority of authors that use swearing in their books, it is because it is appropriate to the character. Let's be realistic, if you are reading about bad guys, shouldn't they be bad guys? I actually do not concentrate on it and usually do not even remember it so if someone asks me about language, I honestly cannot tell them yes or no.
    By the way, one of my favorite historical novels is the Red Tent by Anita Diamont which tells the story of Dinah, daughter of Jacob and sister of Joseph.

    Have you tried any books yet by Brodie and Brock Thoene? They are a great husband and wife writing team! Might be a little hard to find, but well worth searching for..

    C.S. Lewis said that he never wrote a book without quoting George McDonald somewhere in it.. McDonald lived and wrote in the late 1800's in Scotland, but Michael Phillips has done a nice job of putting the Scottish into English that we can understand..

    Francine Rivers is an excellent writer, too.. and Angela Hunt wrote some that are entertaining in a different way! Angela writes about a divorcee with 3 kids who inherits a funeral home.. funny!

    Guess I'd better stop here... Maybe you can pass on names of more of your favorites to me.. I love to read in bed at night..

    I did not see anyone mention. Luann Rice, the first book of hers I read was "Follow the Stars Home". And then read every other book she has written so far. She writes interesting fiction of various subjects and locations.
