GB, you're pulling my leg about the pocketbook thing. You know, the small and cheaper version of the BIG book? Case in point.



Just pulling your leg, GB

Pocket Books is (or was) a brand name for a paperback publisher.

Thanks, GB. I will be hitting the bookstore this week end.

This tread reminds me of this song by Lennon/MaCartney


Paperback writer
Dear Sir or Madam will you read my book
It took me years to write, will you take a look
based on a novel by a man named Lear
and I need a job
so I want to be a paperback writer
Paperback writer

It's the dirty story of a dirty man
and his clinging wife doesn't understand
His son is working for the Daily Mail
It's a steady job
But he want to be a paperback writer
Paperback writer
Paperback writer

It's a thousand pages, give or take a few
I'll be writing more in a week or two
I can make it longer if you like the style
I can change it 'round
and I want to be a paperback writer
Paperback writer

If you really like it you can have the rights
It could make a million for you overnight
If you must return if you can send it here
But I need a break
and I want to be a paperback writer
Paperback writer
Paperback writer

GB,

I've read all 4 of DB's novels. Deception Point is the only not yet mentioned here. They are all GREAT reads. I thought Angels & Demons was even better than the Da Vinci Code. (It's just that Da Vinci Code deals with much more fascinating subjects. Also, it involves the same lead character and occurs chronologically ahead of Da Vinci Code.)

It's hard to believe but of all 4 books, I'd say Deception Point is the best.
So don't feel so bad, you still have two more (and better) DB books to enjoy!

Dan Brown has his own website. You can check out him and his novels.

Deception Point!
That's the one I started to read but couldn't finish. Maybe, I should try
it again.
