    Going through the "In Death" series by J.D. Robb (aka Nora Roberts). Have read these all about 5 or 6 times now. You'd think I'd have them memorized.

    I am reading the Quiltboard! I do have two books waiting to be read. James Patterson "Swimsuit" and a Mary Higgins Clark the name of which escapes me right now. I read JP's "Tick Tock" while I was on vacation a few weeks ago. I had no internet so actually got some sewing and reading done!

    I'm reading some unpublished westerns on my Kindle. It makes me think of westerns on TV when I was a kid (just a few years ago). Love that Kindle.

    Just started Fatal Voyage by Kathy Reichs. The series "Bones" is based on her books. Temperance Brennon, an anthropologist is the main character. Love the suspense.

    Bloody Jack - an account of the curious adventures of Mary "Jacky" Faber by LA Meyer

    My next book is "When All Hell Breaks Loose: Stuff You Need To Survive When Disaster Strikes by Cody Lundin. Cody is on Dual Survival; he's the 'hippy' but I like him.

    I am reading "Last Child in the Woods" by Richard Louv.
    Its all about saving our children from Nature-Deficit Disorder! Because they don't go "out and play" anymore...too far from the electrical cords I think!

    I am reading "The Book Club" by Mary Alice Monroe. First one I have read of hers. Says if you like Barbara Delinksky & Nora Roberts, you should like her books. So far, I do, hard to put down, lol.
    I have read the Patterson series too, waiting for 10 in pb.
    So many good books out there, it's a wonder we have time to quilt, or do anything else, lol...

    I read "paper" books in bed, and I listen to books on tape in my car.

    Paper book currently is "My Life as an Experiment" by AJ Jacobs (author of "The year of living Bliblically" which I did not read but might) and OMG - I couldn't remember the authors name so just looked it up and they're making a series of it? Hmmm ...

    Listening to "David Copperfield" - Dickens. I like hearing the classics especially in the original English Dickensonian speech (read by Simon Vance who is outstanding) because I can hear the speech and it's just easier to understand.

    As a side note to some of the "old rockers" on the board ... reading Copperfield I was reminded of the band Uriah Heep and looked them up to see "where are they now" and believe it or not they just released a new album in April 2011. Gonna have to give it a listen.

    Going through the Ann McCaffrey Pern pooks again, except for the ones written by her son..yuck!!

    Old friends, Manning Coles series from the 40s, fell in love with his Tommy Hamblton.

    Old ones..I find a lot of the ones now days are too violent and demeaning to others to really enjoy them. Probably far too old fashioned?

    New ones..Sara Graves, who is a female contractor, and solves murders during construction.

    Older books from the 30s and 40s give a good idea of what life was like back then, even while solving murders. Phoebe Atwood Taylor wrote some that would be good history for kids, even while giving me a lot of pleasure in rereading them.
    She also wrote under the name of Alice Tilton, which are also in that time period.

    Just started reading the new Lesley Pearse novel 'Belle'. I have all her novels and they are the best read. She is an English author.
