If it hasn't been mentioned I'd like to add Robert B. Parker to the mix.
You know, I liked the early Parker quite a lot, but something happened when he started the plotline about Susan leaving and taking up with a bad guy. From then on, the books seem to have been more and more spare, with lots of dialogue and not much exposition, and lots of "meaningful" silences. IMHO.

I've been enjoying the Jack Reacher novels (I think somebody else recommended then, too) by, of what's his name, Lee? Les? Can't remember.

What about J.A. Jance? Two very different series: one about a Seattle homicide detective (male), and one about a Tombstone AZ area sheriff (female). There are standalone suspense novels, too.

And Ridley Pearson has a good series going.

I'm "reading" on audio book, "The Story of Edgar Sawtelle", by David Wroblewsky. It's been on the best seller list. It's a little dark, but very good!

well i went out and bought a couple paperbacks of what seemed interesting from what folks here are talking about,
and good books they are !!,
but i've redecided that my preference these days still remains in nonfiction,

don't get me wrong, i don't think there's a single book that i wouldn't hold in admiration,
but i'm holding fast on the nonfiction for a while more,

a question .....
what do you do with books that you've read,
i have maybe a 1000 books in my home library, half hardback half soft, and i'm not sure i'm doing much more then re-reading one or two of them every now and then .. usually i'll just go to the bookstores and get another,
i almost feel like giving them to a school?, dropping them off for a couple bucks at a used book store?
looking into book exchanges??
anyone ever cross this path ??? and what did you do?

I donate to the local Senior Center, trade with friends and trade in at local used book store. Our Library also accepts book donations that they then resell to raise funds.

I know some fulltimers who sell them online at Half.com, and I think there are other trading sites online where the only cost is mailing.

Good ideas for the recycling of books. !!
I want to recirculate mine back into hands that want to read them.
I will look into that.

You know, ... this all makes me think of the first few books that made such a big reading impression on me early in my youth ...
Charlotte's Web and
Wilbur the Pig
but ... the huge one was a Time-Life book in their children's science series called Mathematics.
Reading that kid's book about all those math curiosities was THE big factor of my academic endeavors. !
Boy i loved that book !!
I really think i should look for it in a bookstore again.

I have also left books in the airport, in a rental unit or hotel room. I was thinking maybe I should put a bookmark in them explaining they are on a journey to be read by many.

BW and her sister and niece swap cases of books regularly. Wife reads about 3 books a week. I read one every 10-12 days.

Since we rotate, we are able to cycle them through various RV parks and the Clubhouse library in the area our stick/brick is located. We must cycle 300+ a year. BUT, she is starting to see a lot of repeats.

At the moment I'm in the middle of "The Killer Angels" by Michael Shaara. A good novel of the civil war. I wanted to read the sequel that I have,"The Last Full Measure" by his son Jeff. But, my wife bought me Mike Huckabee's "Do The Right Thing" for Christmas. I have really been wanting to read it next now. I heard it was pretty good.

I forgot to ask if you'd read A Reckoning for Kings, by Cole & Bunch. I think it's the best Vietnam War novel I've read.
