The Official Zoomer Book Club

Let's talk about books. I think we have begun to lose our abilities to sit down and stay still and simply read. Maybe the "old-fashioned good book" will enrich us, help decompress our busy selves. Let's write about what we like to read about.

I always wanted to write a book, even have the Weekend Novelist book to give me tips and hopefully inspiration, but NOOO!  I just do not have the time or inclination to start. Maybe when I retire..lol

Love Lisa Gardner. She is fabulous.

I read A Tap on the Window by Linwood Barclay. First of his novels I have read since I saw the offer here to vote on it for book of the year. It was a gripping and riveting book. The ending is sad..I will not spoil it for anyone who has not read it yet.  I also read Lisa Gardner crime books, just waiting for the most recent one to be available at the library, or I will probably buy it from KOBO. I finally went back to The Endless Forest by Sara Donati, the final book in her Wilderness series. I downloaded it like over a year ago! Been too busy reading other books.

Hi all, I'm around but have been working on a book as well ScarletGranny, or should I say picking at several of them. Winter is a great time to write, although I've also been honing up my carpenter skills by making a daybed and trundle. Busy busy, too busy to read and that's kinda a crime.

Hey folks, has no one been reading lately or...?

Been doing a lot of writing myself since early winter, but just finished a super novel, The Last Good Man by A.J. Kazinski. Centred in Denmark but drifting worldwide from time to time, it's different from my usual dabble in the SF/Fantasy genre, but well-written with a gripping plot and interesting ending. Worth the $4.99 on Indigo's clearance page.

Will be back to see if anyone else has cracked a book this year yet.

Cheers, hope all are well.

Just checking out the many novels one can read and the latest Book of the Week is such a pleasant hour in my daily week.

Hi Everyone - Looking forward to being a part of the group - an avid reader with many favourite authors - have moved to a very small community with a very small library - new books are very scarce.

An English friend of mine recommended Josephine Tey who is a British author whose last book was published in the mid-50's.  I got a couple from the library and I was impressed.  She has written a series of mysteries with the same dectective and I hear they are all very good.

Comment by Willow Humphrey on August 31, 2013 at 9:57am

As I am a fan of British mysteries I find myself searching for names of authors I may not have read.  Any recommended names would be greatly appreciated.

Those sound interesting Alexander I think I have read a Dana Hayes book before.

Yes I knew Stephen King was involved June Louise but the story is very different maybe because the book story is a lot more gory. :)
