interesting though, even without a price on the new one,
there is now the Sony bookreader, the Kindle, and also this plasticlogic,

the 'new' plastic thing might be more enticing to hold for the 'professional relaxer' because the Sony I held was metallic and might be colder to hold,

and I hate to go down this unpure path, but I'm presuming that they are all black/white type so far, but since they all (?) seem to also be able to automatically download current magazines while you sleep at night, the color features, when it becomes available, are going to open up a real buzz of marketing,
and there will go the simple man's paperback as we all know it, gone the way of home milk delivery
Bite my tongue that I even had such a thought.

Well, call me crazy, but I still love to hold and smell and read a hardcover book. And, I like to have them as my own... you know, you never know when you might want to re-read that great story again. I do ususally buy off of Amazon.com, because you can get great prices on used books. Recently read the Garden Trilogy by Nora Roberts (awesome if you love gardening like me)... just started the Outlander series by Diana Gabaldon, others in queue...

Quite right. I have a stash of about 200 books I carry around in my RV that I like to re-read. Of course, there are others I would read again, but this bunch is full of definite re-reads.

So, if I can't find anything new, I can always delve into my permanent library and enjoy myself with an old friend.

I just finished "T is for Trespass" by Sue Grafton. I think it is one of her best novels. Just started "Hollywood Station" by Joseph Wambaugh. I had forgotten just how fun it is to read his novels.

I just finished Dance of the Dead by J.A. Jance, one of her standalones, set in Tucson. Enjoyed it. Has lots of info on the Papago Indian culture.

Also just finished Chosen by a Horse by Susan Richards, memoir about rescuing an abused horse and how it changed her. Very good and, yes, sad.

Am now reading Geography of Bliss, a reporter's exploration of happiness around the world; and Touchstone by Laurie King, a thriller by one of our best writers IMHO.

BigRanger ... great seletion of books you have there. I have not yet read Ambrose' Band of Brothers, but I have watched the set of DVD's and it is the best I have ever watched.
I will go look into the Lee's Lieutenants this week. Thanks

I am pretty careful into what books I buy generally,
but once in a while a 'books cover' lures me in and I buy without any further exploration. Well, most recently that book for me was HUBERT'S Freaks by Gregory Gibson.
A peculiar storyline. and I haven't finished it yet. Overall it seems interesting, but just hasn't been an easy read for me so far.
Anyone else here ever judge a book by its cover?

Yep, and most of the books turned out to good reads. Unfortunately, the folks I've judged the same way have not.
Cheers, Chuck

I enjoyed the Vince Flynn series and several books by W.E.B. Griffin. A friend loaned me some books by Stuart Woods. I enjoy the Stone Barrington series, the Ed Eagle series and Will Lee series.

While at the 2009 iRV2.com National Rally, one of the tours was to the Longaberger Homestead. There, I purchased the book "Longaberger: An American Success Story". It's the story of Dave Longaberger and how he an started a basket weaving company in the early 1970's which grew into a $700 million-a-year business.

If you like business success stories, this one's for you!

Atlas Shrugged was the last book I finished, and it's my favorite. It really is relevant today.

Always enjoyed easy reading, easy flow historic novels,,,,,mystery, etc.....

Received Lone Star from son one Christmas,,,,,,,One of the most challenging readings of Texas History before Texas was Texas and then fun reading about historical events.

I have read this book 3 Times,,,,,and will read it again.....Captivating study. The rest of books are no-brainers,,,the way I like it.

Lone Star: a history of Texas and the Texans - by T. R. Fehrenbach

MovableBookLady I was glad to see that you are a fan of J.A.Jance. I found out about her when we made a visit to the Copper Queen and have read both series and will get the stand alones next.
W.E.B. Griffin very good with all the series about early days of the CIA
Lee Child-Vince Flynn-James Patterson-Dan Brown all great writers.
