    Thanks to whoever reccomended Janet Evanovich! I am seriously in love with her Stephanie Plum series! Grandma Mazur (spl?) playing with the gun at the dinner table just about had me snorting I was laughing so hard!

    She is such a creative author! I think I like Stephanie because she isn't perfect. So many characters these days are so boring and unrealistic. I could totally see a SP out there somewhere.

    I just finished reading True Colors by Kristin Hannah. It was really good. Also reading Susan Wiggs, she has stand alones and series.
    Ann B. Ross has a fun series of Mrs. Julia books.

    you may be right...I watched the movie of The other bolyn Girl and enjoyed it very much.

    Im at a stall because my sister cant find her 4th book in the stephanie plumb series so until I get to the library Im reading a book called "Three weeks to say goodbye" about a husband and wife who adopts a baby and then the biological father and his father want her back...the father never signed over the rights, and the grandpa is a judge..I just started it so I dont know how it turns out

    I've read the first 6 Stephanie Plum books. They are a riot! However, I do get a bit tired of Stephanie being so obstinate. So, I'm taking a break for now.

    Re: What are you reading?

    I'm on book 14 of the Stephanie Plum series. Like Gutmutter, I've been going through them like a drug addict. Her obstinance doesn't bother me so much - I can relate. When I finish this one today, I'm planning to start reading the between-the-numbers books.

    Has anyone read any of Evanovich's other novels, other than Plum?

    I'm going to have to seek out these Plum books so I can join the party here. What's the first one called?

    I'm reading Inkheart at my daughter's request, so we'll both have read it when the DVD comes out though I think that won't be for quite a while yet. It's not bad, but very much a novel for kids - it definitely doesn't have the same crossover appeal as Harry Potter. A good adventure story for tweens, though.

    The first in the series is One For The Money. I'd recommend grabbing the first few in case you like it. They're quick and easy reads so you'll most likely breeze through them.
