MargeI, you might get to the middle and get sort of uninterested, BUT from what I hear keep going and it gets better. I'm on tape 5 now and I'm still enjoying it.

I don't know if anyone has read it but The Quickie by James Patterson. I got that one at Christmas and literally stayed up all night and finished it. Most recently I read You've been warned by James Patterson and I got an old one I had never read before by him Honeymoon. I also finished Left to Die by Lisa Jackson. I read a few good books by Patterson and I can say that I am reading all of his now, they have that catch you and want to finish it. I read one of the Odd Thomas books, it was okay to me, but took me awhile to finish it. Which was unusual, usually Koontz gets my attention. I have now decided to go to the library, I read 4 or 5 books a month and I figure now I can get more and save a bunch. I will keep checking the thread to see if I should get any that are recommended on here.

Moscow Rules by Daniel Silva. The latest in the series of Gabriel Allon, the art resorer, friend of the Pope and Mosad agent. Wonderfully exciting and interesting books.

I just started reading Divine Secrets Of The Ya Ya Sisterhood. So
far it seems like it is going to be a good book. I have merchandised
the DVD before and had always been curious regarding what it was
about.

I loved the Ya Ya series! If you like Divine Secrets, be sure to read the other two, Little Alters Everywhere and Ya Ya's In Bloom.

Also just for fun, try out the Ya Ya name generator. http://ya-ya.com/yaya_name

I just finished Dead After Dark by Charlaine Harris. It's the first of the series that is the base of the new show True Blood on HBO. So far the series is closely following the book. I was pleased to see that the show is filmed on location near Shreveport, LA where the story takes place. I grew up near Shreveport so now I'm going to have to look for places I recognize.

How far did you get? I had to stop - I just couldn't make it any further and kept feeling bad about it - so I returned it to the library (the tape that is, I do still have the book) and I'll try again in a month or so.

You should also try The Secret History by Donna Tartt, which in my opinion is just a better read and is actually my all time favorite book.

Honor Killing by David Stannard. True story set in Hawaii in the early 1900's. Finding out a lot of things about Hawaii I never knew as part of the story.

Hope this isn't concerned cheating, but I just got the River King by Alice Hoffman on tape for the weekend. I have a weekend auditing job where I'll be driving for an hour to the first stop, I love listening to books on tape.

Last weekend I listened to the Godfather - one of my all time favorite books and even better on tape.

I just started reading a book by Jane Fonda. It's called Women
Coming Of Age With Jane Fonda's Prime Time Workout. This is an
older book that I found at a library book sale. Hopefully it
will offer some worthy tips for firming up all of my flab!!!

Finished Honor Killing, now reading Manhunt. It's about the hunt for John Wilkes Booth after Lincoln's Assassination. Much more interesting than reading in in high school history. This seems to be my month for historical novels. Not usually what I read.

I am reading a very informative book named Complete Guide To The
New Manners For The 90's. It was written by Letitia Baldridge.
This book covers such topics as sexual manners,manners concern-
ing homosexuality,questions women must ask of men that never had
to be asked before,and problems faced by live-togethers who have
not been married,as well as problems faced by people who may
have been married too often.
This book will be handy to have as a quick reference guide. At
this time I am reading it page by page. Would make a nice coffee
table book. Would also make a nice gift.

I read this on disc on my way to the Mystery Shopping Conference:

Pebble in the Sky
Isaac Asimov

It was very good and really made the 7 hour drive just fly by.

I've read a couple of books by Nicholas Sparks and really enjoyed them, but haven't read that one, yet.

I attended the annual fund-raiser book sale at Centenary College in Shreveport a week or so ago. Walked away with about 80 books for $11.00. (I always wait and go to the last couple of hours when everything is half off the dirt cheap prices--those 2 for 25 cents books really stack up for little cost)! I picked up several mysteries by authors with whom I am unfamiliar. This is a good way to be introduced to new writers at little financial risk. That's how I read my first Nicholas Sparks tale. Now I am a fan.
