    I just finished "The Bone Garden" by Tess Gerritsen. Well written and very suspenseful.
    Columbia! The Bone Garden is on of her best books, IMO.

    I have found Linwood Barclay and read 3 of his books, very suspenseful. He is an excellent author!

    Thanks to both you and Ms. Diva,
    I just put in my online request at the library.
    I'm # 399........
    I'm hoping there are some fast readers out there.

    Kindle, kindle, kindle...

    I'm shameless, Duxxy. I was listening to Eat, Pray, Love on CDs when my car went into the shop for 2 weeks and then I had to return it to the library. My friend loaned me her dead tree copy and within 2 chapters I had to download it onto my Kindle. There is a very cool riff on the origin of the different Romance languages that with my Kindle I can copy and paste from my laptop ap and e-mail to myself at school and use in my classroom. There are passages I want to "bookmark" and passages I want to underline. I have become very spoiled with these features.

    Re: What are you reading?

    I just started That Old Cape Magic by Richard Russo. I heard him speak last fall and I'm a big fan of his writing. It's another title I picked up at the trade show last year. Since this year's event is approaching fast, I figured I'd better get back to reading the books I got last year!

    Gut - I know my house would certainly be less cluttered if I bought a Kindle and just got all my books that way, but I still love paper books - the smell, the feel, etc. I don't know that I'll ever go electronic. I'm glad you like yours though!

    I felt exactly the same way before I got mine. Within a week or two I was totally Kindled. For starters when I read late at night in bed I don't wake up with sore wrists, thumbs and forearms from holding the page any more.
    I do miss the ability to pass a good book to my Sig. Other (SO has no interest in getting a Kindle and I'm not loaning mine when I could be reading on it!). And I do miss that my grandkids won't be able to stumble on some of the things I'm reading (once I have them that is), and I do still usually find the first book I read in a series via paper... but after that, all Kindle.

    It is NOT as easy to thumb back through a book for a clue you missed on Kindle.
    I might be still buying paper books if I had a place to put them, but between my inability to toss a book... or even find it another home...and eventual limitations on space for book shelves... something had to be done.
    OK, this is not the kIndle thread....

    Re: What are you reading?

    I am thisclose to getting a kindle or a kobo reader. The thing is, last night when I was on Chapters.com the kindle version was $14.99 and the paper book was $6.95, and much like Critical I love holding a book. I'm going to hold off on ebooks for now... maybe until I get an Itouch/Iphone and download the ap for free

    I think I would miss the feeling I get from sitting quietly reading a book and turning the pages. I know it sounds silly,lol. I just enjoy it. It's either get a kindle or buy a larger bookcase,lol.

    Re: What are you reading?

    Just pre-ordered the new Tana French: Faithful Place due out in a little over a week (on my Kindle, so no waiting for it to be shipped!). I'm so excited! I loved her first two books... In the Woods, and The Likeness. The reviewer said this one was even better.
    What happened to the "I'm so lazy..." thread? I'm so lazy I realized when I started reading the Eat, Pray, Love book, that it was two hard to read a book with two hands. (the Kindle only takes one, turning the pages with a press of the thumb on the hand holding the book).

    Re: What are you reading?

    I had sworn off Jonathan Kellerman, but just finished "Deception." I enjoyed it, and somehow it seemed different than some of his other books.

    Now reading "The Lilac Bus" by Maeve Binchy -- an old book but I just love her writing style.
