Kathy Reichs?

Jefferson Bass?

Elmore Leonard?

Ben Bova's "The Return," Shrek is advocating that one, I haven't read it yet.

Up to date on Kathy Reichs. Never read Jefferson Bass or Elmore Leonard. If you had to pick only one of each which would you pick?

Up to date on Carl Hiaasen (oh he makes me laugh so hard!) and Janet is a possible, but her last few were not as inspiring. Explosive Eighteen is on my short list. I'm not sure about the price though. Never read either Wally Lamb or Jeff Dunham. The book title is All By Myselves?

Elmore is fun, Jeff Dunham is a comedian/ventriloquist with an autobiography. Loved Wally Lamb, it's been awhile.

Anthony Bourdain's books make great airplane reading too. I'm looking through my bookshelf. Geek Love by Katherine Dunn was bizarre but fascinating. Water for Elephants, which you've probably already read. The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time. Bill Bryson, The Life and Times of the Thunderbolt Kid was hilarious.
