It's amazing that someone can write such tame novels as she does as Nora Roberts, and then turn around and write the most amazing, cunning, twisty plots as J.D. Robb I'd never have believed they could be the same person, but they are. I love the J.D. Robb books. You can't read them slowly, they are just too exciting.

i know what you mean, they have tended to make me read far to late into the night. i agree with you, never really cared for her as nora roberts. too sweet for me.

I went to a library book sale and found 7 hardcover Robert B. Parker novels. He's one of my favorites so I'm working my way through those. Great writer, especially the Spenser novels.

Speaking of Nora Roberts, I also found an autographed copy of Nora Roberts "Black Hills" that I most likely won't read, but will live on the shelf. Figured I'd pick it up for a buck.

Gone Baby Gone, by Dennis Lehane, I love his books, not the movies so much.

The book is ALWAYS better, then at least when you see the movie you understand what they are portraying, as well as what they left out.

I'm on to Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets.

I have to agree. But, I tried reading Doctor Zhivago and I just couldn't keep track of all the different names used for the same people and couldn't finish the book. Then I saw the movie. I read the book and it all made sense, and yes, it was better.
