"Lee Child is terrific in its genre ... unbeatable, uncontainable, unlikely, and great fun to read. His hero, Jack Reacher, is tougher than the average bear, will noy be pinned down, and has a sense of honour. Mystery and Thriller fans will keep him…"

"There was a book by Constance Beresford Howe called The Book of Eve. It was about a Rosedale woman around sixty who just decided to leave her life and became a street lady. This book changed my whole view of things. I had never considered "bag…"
I would never have imagined reading an ebook until you posted about it. I thought it would be hard on the eyes and somehow sterile compared with the sensuous experience of a real book - the smell, the feel, etc. But it is not like staring at…"
"Marilyn, I have a list of people I pray for every day - a kind of generic but sincere prayer - and I will add you and your son to the list. People go on and off as crcumstances dictate, and I have no idea if it actually helps, but it is a habit of…"
I have been catching up on all the comments over the past few weeks. Seems to be a more serious mood going around - not like the stereotypical "summer" read at all:)
I have been busy with the students I mentor..end of summer…"

"OH my, how did I forget to mention a magnificent book I read on the weekend. It is called "Eddie Signwriter" by Adam Schwartzman. The prose is absolutely stunning, metaphors and similes so unusual and yet supremely evocative. This book was…"

I read Breaking Out of Bedlam on the weekend and enjoyed it. I think I am becoming a bit of a snob though --- I keep wanting to correct the grammar of characters in novels:)!! Let me know what you thought."
"I just read The Bride Will Keep Her Name by Jan Goldstein which is a light romantic mystery - a quick read but generally entertaining, and Breaking Out of Bedlam by Leslie Larson. This one was a bit different. Told from the point of view of an 82…"
"I listened to a Tim Winton book on cassette and was irritated by the Australian accents:) I actually feel the same way about written dialogue that too faithfully uses a dialect or accent.

"P.S. I meant to start of my most recent comment with a thank you to those who welcomed me to the group. This group has three things I like best: members older than 40, women, and book lovers. (Don't get me wrong about the women part:):) I just…"
WOW! That convention must have been amazing! What a great opportunity to meet both Sue and Janet. How did they relate to each other? Did they get along well or was there any rivalry? When did Janet Evanovich first start publishing? I've only been aware of her since the late '90s. What did they talk about?

I'm sure you're aware that a movie of "One For The Money" is in production, and that Janet Evanovich has a page on Facebook.
