    Smile Read any good books lately?

    Hi all!

    I'm always looking for something great to read - any genre, and new or old. I've recently out-Agatha Christied myself having gone through 5 Miss Marple mysteries and 5 Hercule Poirot stories (yes, occasionally I take a break from SBM!).

    After receiving some awesome book recommendations from Jessica in another thread, I thought that I would pose the question to everyone:

    "Read any good books lately?"

    Much appreciated,

    Karin

    I don't know if you're into Christian Fiction, but that's what I usually read. I've read a lot of Karen Kingsbury and Dee Henderson books lately that I enjoy. They are sort of a mystery/love type of story. Too many titles to list them. Any of theirs would be good in my opinion.

    Wink Books I've Enjoyed

    Hi,

    I just finished "Dispatches from the Edge" by Anderson Cooper. It was really good - a fast read. My husband enjoyed it, too. I've also enjoyed "Marley and Me" by John Grogan and "Night" by Elie Wiesel recently.

    Another really interesting book - "My Sister's Keeper" by Jodi Piccoult.

    Hope these might be good choices for you.

    Karin, if you are into writing as art then you *must* read T.R. Pearson. Try the book "Gospel Hour". T.R. Pearson has a writing style unlike any other.

    This is a real 'beach' read, but I loved "Odd Thomas" by Dean Koontz.

    thanks Sandy - I like the beach...

    I was thinking that it's not fair for me to simply take all of your suggestions without giving some back! As I mentioned, my tastes are all over the place. But the one "stand-out" book that I read recently was "The Once and Future King" by T.H.White.

    Even though it's not exactly new (hello, 1930's ) it was to me , and it was a really incredible book! Since it's actually several books in one, it makes a good summer-long read...

    "The Tipping Point" by Malcom Gladwell - Interesting reading about why things change and what influences them to change.

    Default One or two more!

    I have just about finished "Still Waters" by Jennifer Lauck. It's really well-written and interesting. Her first book "Blackbird" is the first part, but I haven't read it yet - will read it next! They are memoirs.

    If you read even half the suggestions, you'll be busy this summer!
