Hmmm, that's actually a decent comparison. Twilight is the 80s music of vampire books.

About Jimmy Buffett, Where is Joe Merchant? How do you download it? Do you have it on some kind of computer document or something? Since I know how computer savvy you are, I would appreciate you telling me how you do it? The library doesn't have the book. Will I have to go to bookstore for it?

Thanks
a used copy of buffett's joe merchant can be had for four dollars on ebay--tax and ship included. other buffett reads as well....

Decisions, decisions... I finished Jimmy Buffett, and have several new books as well as a good size pile of unfinished ones.

Thanks for the suggestions. I've put a couple of the author's books in my wish list to remember them for a future order.

One of the things I appreciate about this batch of Patterson's writings is that he paints wonderful pictures in my head as I read, which I view as good writing.

Check into them. You might be pleasantly surprised and...hooked.
Oh yes, The Maximum Ride is a good series.
