    I'm into mystery books a great deal. I'll give anything a shot at least once lol. Right now I'm reading Patricia Cornwell's latest Hmm can't remember the name as it's in the other room...:P. Actual paperback books I like...holding a book really feels better sometimes (plus if I read in the bathtub and drop it I'm only out 5-7.00 or less).
    I believe the name of her last book was Dust.....I finished it recently. I actually don't have anything new to read right now....I need to go to Books A Million and finish using my gift card my hubby gave me for Christmas. I definitely have a book addiction problem so I try not to go to the book store too often. I'm constantly searching for free books on my Kindle and iPad....I like free. There has been some good suggestions made......I may have to make a library run.

    I take that back....I do have one book I need to finish....the 5th book in the Game of Thrones series.

    The Redbreast by Jo Nesbo. Who knew Norway was a hotbed of fascism?

    After the damage that movie has done, I hope you can put that aside to get into the book! Movie was overly simplistic, corny and what's up with people reverting "back" to cave men? Pleeze...I hate the movie as much as I love the book 👍

    I used to read alot before I found HD. But now I haven't even picked up my kindle for a few weeks to a month or so. But if remember correctly the latest books I've read included: the 50 Shades of Gray series, The Pretty Little Liars series by Sara Shepard, & The Hunger Games Series. It's been so long I forgot two of the authors' names & I'm to lazy to check right now (lol).

    Randomchick, don't give up on reading!

    I just cannot stop reading Maeve binchy. Whenever I finish one, another appears somehow. She one of the greatest writers! Anyone ever read one? Pure enjoyment, inexplicably personal...

    Yes, as, I really enjoy her books as well. I like authors who create a world with cross-over characters. It adds something when you unexpectedly meet a character in one book that you've met in a previous book. Stephen King does that brilliantly as well. Another authoress that I still enjoy reading although her books are out of print now is Norah Lofts. She was a brilliant storyteller and used the cross-over technique to great advantage.

    Well said. Will have to check out Nora lofts. Almost done with "whitethorn woods". Did you read "the copper beech" or "silver lake"? My two binchey favs.
