Harlan Coban's "Hold on Tight". Re-reading it, since I didn't realize I'd already read it when I paid 50 cents for it at the library's "bargain cart".

I'm reading one of Nora Roberts trilogies.

I really like her books too. I'm almost finished with the 4th book in her McKade Brothers series. For some reason when I first started reading the 4th book, I didn't really like it but went back to it and got into it. Her writing style is much like Sandra Brown's, who is another of my favorite authors.

I finally got smart and figured out how to do the library loans on my kindle...another whole world of free books to read :mrgreen:.

After all these years I finally got around to reading Catcher in the Rye. Maybe I'm to old now but found it tedious.

I just bought The Professor and will start it tonight. The guy sitting beside me on the plane was reading it and said it as good.

Funny you should say that, John. I LOVED it when I read it in junior high. I recently re-read it and felt like giving old Holden a smack upside the head!

I'm reading two books now: "The Outermost House" written by a man who spent a year in a tiny house in the dunes of Cape Cod, and "I Loved Her in the Movies", by Robert Wagner, the actor, about all the actresses he's known and worked with.

I'll be on the lookout for that one.
My friend Jane is trying to turn me on to James Patterson.
I prefer bios or history reading.

I loved most of his early books, but have kinda lost touch with him in recent years.

Sass, if you only read one Patterson book, let it be "Beach Road" - one of the best books I've ever read! Not "Beach HOUSE" (also a Patterson book) - Beach ROAD.

Just finished listening to "Girl on the Train".

It held my attention throughout, which is not something I can say about a lot of audiobooks that I listen to in the car. I liked it.

I tried Girl on the Train but just couldn't get into it.

I just finished Country by Danielle Steele and loved it.

I finally figured out how to get library books on my kindle. Duh, it was so easy. Silly me, I thought if I got them on my tablet, which I was able to do earlier, that I could easily transfer them to my kindle...no go though. They have to be loaded directly to the kindle. My tablet is heavy, hard to hold up, has a short battery live, has to be manually turned off, and is just such a pain compared to the kindle. Spoiled, spoiled, spoiled :biggrin:

I've been reading a lot lately. Some Danielle Steel - The Apartment, Blue, Magic, Family Ties, Betrayal. Blue was my favorite.

Nora Robert's Chasing Fire - Couldn't get into that. It's about fire jumpers who jump out of planes into the edges of wildfires and try to help extinguish/control.

"The Deep" by Nick Cutter.

I picked it up because it was endorsed by my guy, Stephen King, and I can see why he liked it (very much in his style).

I like it, too, except for the parts where animals suffer - I hate that.

I'm reading a mystery series by 'Ed McBain'. When I started them I did not realize the first of these was written in 1955. And there is a series of 50+ of this 87th Precinct Mysteries.
These are cheap or free Kindle E books. I love being able to read on my puter or on my phone. No matter where I am I have my book with me. Often in places where there is no phone signal but I can still read my current book as long as I have already downloaded it to my phone. TMI I suppose but it workes for me.

I have always loved McBain's 87th Precinct novels.
