    Are you serious that "Who Moved My Cheese?" is still on a bestseller list? That thing's been out so long, the cheese is moldy.

    Might have to check out "Hornet Flight" by Ken Follett. And I'd be interested in "The Carnivorous Carnival" if I could get past the author's name of Lemony Snicket. There's just something not right about that.

    Portrait Of A Killer is a fantastic book. Or maybe I just think that way because I'm a big fan of Patricia Cornwell. In any case, it's a great read and I recommend it to anyone who wants to try something new and different.

    I love the Thursday Next series by Jasper Fforde too. Theyre great books, full of humour and originality. Once I started, I couldn't put them down. Two thumbs and two toes up. Hehe.

    Well, I've had more time on my hands than usual, so since it's gotten great reviews on this board, I am now reading "A Prayer for Owen Meany" Wow, it's great.

    I'm also intending to read "Let's Roll", the book written by Lisa Beamer, wife of Todd Beamer, who was killed September 11th.

    I haven't read a good book for so long

    I loved The Stand and anything by Herman Wouk.

    I finished "A Prayer For Owen Meany" today, and WOW, great, great book! I'd seen the movie Simon Birch, and it didn't even begin to convey the depth of this story. I don't think any movie format could ever do it justice.

    I know, I know, I'm responding to another old thread. It's just going to take me a while to catch up...

    Also, I have to recommend a book that I read recently (sorry if someone already mentioned it - I didn't have time to read all 6 pages of responses). The title is "The Secret Life of Bees" and it was so wonderful.

    It's told from the viewpoint of a girl whose mother dies when she is little (an interesting part that I won't give away), then she is raised by her hateful father until running away with the family maid. The maid is an African American woman who is in trouble with the locals (it's set around 1960). The two of them end up living with a group of women who raise bees and sell the honey.

    It's hard to do it justice in a brief description, but this was a great, great book that I love. (Actually I listened to the unabridged version on tape and the girl who reads it does a really good job).
