Wyshiepoo, Sometimes I find the slowest reading books are the best ones.

That's not always the case but they seem to make you think as you read.

Or it could be one of those you simply don't care for.

I'm reading several textbooks for students in culinary school; a book on diseases passed from wildlife to humans and domestic animals, and a book on effective social media techniques. For pleasure I am reading the Norwegian author Jo Nesbo's Harry Hole series on my Kindle... The translator who translated his books is really good--hard to believe the books weren't written in English.

I ordered it from my local library and have just finished it. Such an interesting true story -- a fast read, and an all-too-rare these days happy ending to a well-lived life. Thanks, Kayelle!

I like Greg Iles's first book, "Black Cross." It is a real suspense thriller, his best book IMO. It's about WW II and poison gas. "Black cross" was the code word for the most deadly gas.

I've just finished Anne Bishop's Black Jewels trilogy - now extended, decided to try her "The Others" series and I am totally enchanted by the series debut "Written in Red."

Note the Anne Bishop books are hardcore fantasy. I'm loving this Others series because I know if the rest are as good as the debut I won't have any problems finding reading material for some time...

Just got done reading the whole series ( 29 books ) of Lilian Jackson Braun's The Cat Who. Loved every one and hated to see the series end.

Himself and I were just talking about "The Cat Who..." yesterday. He's reading one of Donna Andrews' mysteries and said her writing reminds him of Lilian Jackson Braun. Every winter I figure I should start all over from book one, and every spring the chance has passed me by.

I grabbed "Born With Teeth" by Kate Mulgrew off the New Books shelf when I returned a couple books on Friday. Interesting read...
