Almost finished with About Grace by Anthony Doerr. Kind of odd and sweet and sad, but I like it. Up next is Philip Roth's The Human Stain. Last week finished my second dose of Body Farm novels (Jefferson Bass). Those are almost too real to handle.

I love the Body Farm novels, those two need to write faster!

I saw the third and final book of the trilogy by Stieg Larsson at Walmart today.
Anyway, It's in hardcover, so I'll have to wait for the paperback.

The first one is The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo
The second is The Girl Who Played With Fire
The third is the Girl.... DRAT!!!! I forgot.

Does anybody have an idea how long it takes from hardcover to paperback on the shelves?

I picked up Dan Brown's new (2009) book The Los Symbol. This book follows The DaVinci Code. I like having a book to put on these empty shelves, but reading this one on a Kindle would be a lot easier on my wrist. Heck, it's too big to hold with one hand - 639 pages!

Thanks, Princess. I had it in my mind when I started my post, but my mind got hung up on the repeating of "The Girl Who"... and off it went. I hate it when that happens.

You'll have to tell me how you like the 'Hornet's Nest" one. I liked the first two, but wasn't big on that last one, in fact, never finished it (rare for me). Too much cold war politics which I've been having a hard time getting into since, well, since the cold war ended!

Fiona, I've noted Jack Whyte down for future reference. Never heard of them. You might like, if you haven't, The Crystal Cave series by Mary Stewart (Stuart? Can't remember), the King Arthur tales told from Merlin's point of view.
