Finished Montana Blue. It was pretty good although it seemed like at the end the author just kind of quit.... It was like she wrapped up all the loose ends in one quick little package in a matter of a few minutes.....

But not bad for a quick read....

Going to surf through this thread for my next victim....

Go to work, do your best, don't outsmart your common sense
Never let your prayin knees get lazy
And love like crazy"

How about a delightful hour reading (or a probable re-read?) of Longfellow's, "The Song Of Hiawatha". I have an old, cherished copy, and never tire of it's beauty :)

It's an oldy but a goody - Oryx and Crake.
I've read that book at least 3-4 times and still love it.

I will also second the Game Of Thrones series. And those suckers are big. I can usually demolish a book in a plane ride (took me that long for Girl with the Dragon Tattoo) but this series takes me way longer. I think I finished the Girl series in the same amount of time I did one GoT book.

Outlander by Diana Gabaldon. Its the first book in the series. I couldn't put it down. Not quite a romance, but parts are. OH here, I'll copy and paste what Wikipedia said about it. The novel is not easily classified by a single genre. On one level, the work is a romance novel with a focus on the romantic relationship between the two main characters. The book could be described as a work of historical fiction with a detailed account of 18th century Scottish clan life. The novel could also be considered fantasy with a plot propelled by magical time travel as Claire journeys from 1945 to the 18th century.

Have you read the Outlander series by Diana Gabaldon? They are a historical romance series. Good, good books IMPO.

The Cat Who series is also a good set of mysteries.

Jean M. Auel's Clan of the Cave Bear series is also really good, well it is until like the last two books and those flopped IMPO.

Rita Mae Brown has some really good murder mysteries.

Terry Goodkind and his Wizard's First Rule series is also good. (if you have a nook I could "lend" you some of these ones)

Kristen Britain also has a good series and she is a fairly "new" writer.

yes I am a book nut and no I don't want to think about how big my home library is or the fact I have so many digital books either

It's a little of both. At a few pints you would wanna do something else - but overall I love it and wanted to keep reading it. The first sentence goes something like this: "They turned him loose on a dazzling, yellow-robed morning ten years to the month - June - since they'd locked him in."
It's kind of about getting revenge on someone but instead the guy falls in love and saves the guy he hates and marries someone. It sounds boring, but it is really good.

I like Kathy Reichs, she is Co director of Bones. So that's what her books are about.
