All reading counts. I read to my elderly friends a couple of times a week, and revisiting childhood favorites is great. Right now we're reading Galway Bay by Mary Pat Kelly. For myself, I accidentally picked up The Sparrow by Mary Doria Russell. WEll, I say accidentally because I rarely read sci-fi. Only when it is recommended by friends who know my taste in reading and think I'll like it. Seriously, so much of the sci-fi I read in my 20s was thinly disguised mild porn. You know, men's vision of the future is of women with perfect bodies running around naked or nearly so, having sex with anyone. At any rate, this book is supposed to be about Jesuits in space. Hmmmm ... we'll see! Anyone out there read it?

If Stephen King is your favorite, you should try Heart Shaped Box by his son, Joe Hill.

You need to go back and start at the beginning. Deja Dead I think is #1 in the series and I think Devil Bones is the most recent...#9 or #10? Can't remember.

Kathy Reichs is a great author. Deja Dead was very good indeed.
