James Patterson February 07, 2005 9:56 AM

I am not familiar with his name, so cannot say - often I go to the library and pick books that have a short description on the back about what it is about - if it apeals to my mood of the time. You do not say what kind of books he writes - mystery? horror? adventure? or some other genre. I have enjoyed Coonz in the past, but not seen any of his in a long time. The only time I really take note of an authors name now is because I so enjoyed a book, picked at random, that I will keep the name in mind and go look for more.  [ send green star]  [ accepted]
Mary Higgins Clark February 07, 2005 9:58 AM

Now here is one I do believe I have read all she has had published. Just love the way she writes, and get quite excited whenever a new one comes out. Have even gone as far as buying her books, so I can share them later with my girls, who also love to read her books.  [ send green star]  [ accepted]
My apologies.... February 07, 2005 11:35 AM

James Patterson writes mysteries/crime dramas.....I HIGHLY recommend his Alex Cross series. Have a great day all!!!! :)  [ send green star]  [ accepted]
James Patterson is great February 07, 2005 11:41 AM

I've read all his books, and the ones with Alex Cross in the are the best, I think. If you can read them in order, you can follow Alex's life story, too, as it progresses along. I like just about any kind of book except romance or westerns. I love sci-fi, forensics, action, detection, any really good novel. This is a great group and I'm really glad I've become a member. Thank you for inviting me. peace Lizzzie  [ send green star]  [ accepted]
re Romance February 07, 2005 12:14 PM

LOL I read a lot of romance, but skip most of the sex scenes if they are in there. I just like to see the twists and turns, the development of relationships and perspectives of people and how they are treated in a book. sometimes there are many hidden jewels of information hidden in them. my favorites right now ar those from the Regency period. Just love them for lighhearted reading.  [ send green star]  [ accepted]
James Patterson February 07, 2005 12:18 PM

Thanks for clearing that up - he sounds just like something I would love to read, so will check him out. I really am into phorensics mystery and crime novels lately, cannot seem to get enough.  [ send green star]  [ accepted]

Hi, I enjoy all books, well almost all books. I really enjoy Janet Evanovich. Her Stephanie Plum series always makes me laugh out loud. I also love Nora Roberts and Amanda Quick. I used to read Dean Koontz but haven't been very interested in them lately. One author I really love is Billie Letts, she writes human stories. 'Home Is Where The Heart Is', 'The Honk and Holler Opening Soon' and 'Shoot the Moon'. All wonderful stories. ~Lori  [ send green star]  [ accepted]

I checked in the Library and found a couple of Patterson books. Have no idea which is the first in the series, as I could not find anything that says which series they are or what order. Anyway, I picked up 2 and have started reading Pop Goes the Weasel. I can see why you like him. Does read much like Mary Higgins, keeps you wanting to not put it down. Thanks for this name. I am going to enjoy looking for more.  [ send green star]  [ accepted]

James Patterson February 20, 2005 6:08 PM

James Patterson is one of the best authors. I am hoping to get my hands on "Honeymoon." Has anyone read it, yet? Another author that I really love is Janet Evanovich. I don't care what she writes it is always good.  [ send green star]  [ accepted]
Ella February 21, 2005 9:48 AM

I agree with you here - I love Janet Evonovich books, and have read everything I have been able to find from her.  [ send green star]  [ accepted]
Frances February 21, 2005 11:13 AM

I am loving the fact that some of the older books are coming back out. I just got done reading "Love Overboard." Like I said before I have yet to read a bad book by her. She has another book coming out in the beginning of April. So I am eagerly waiting!  [ send green star]  [ accepted]

Hi, I'm new here also, and I seem to like alot of the same authors as you all! I really like Janet Evanovich, her books make me laugh out loud! I also really like Lawrence Block. Right now I am reading a series of books starting with OUTLANDER, by Diana Galbaldon. These books are truly epic and exceptional! I haven't been able to put them down, and as there are five of them and they are all about 1,000 pages it has taken me about a month to read them. I am on the last one now, and I am kinda sad that it's almost over...does anyone else ever feel that way about books? :)  [ send green star]  [ accepted]
Hi Aaron March 06, 2005 9:32 AM

Welcome to this group I agree. the OUTLANDER is a series that I too felt so sad about when it came to an end. I just loved the books, and hated to put them down to do other things. Time travel, adventure, personal interactions, history, wonderful tid bits re the differences in food, medicines, culture changes - she put it all in. There are a few series that are like this, and when I come across one I try to find more and start from #1. Not always easy as they are usually out of print, or so popular I have to wait to get them through the library.  [ send green star]  [ accepted]

Hello, I'm another newbie. I love, love, love books, so this seems like the right place to be. Now, did someone say that Diana Gabaldon's Outlander series had ended? She's not done writing them. There are five now, and she says that she'll be done in six, but she originally thought that it was only one book, then only a trilogy, and now she says six. I don't believe it. I think with all that she does,and where she says that she wants to end, it will be at least eight books.  [ send green star]  [ accepted]
Hello Michelle March 23, 2005 7:23 PM

if there are more Outlander books coming that is welcome news indeed. I for one will be keeping an eye out for that next one. Thanks.  [ send green star]  [ accepted]

Hi, Francis, You should check out her website. If you do a google search you will find all sorts of great stuff, including an on line forum, similar to Care2, about the series. I just read that the next book, A Breath of Snow and Ashes, should be out Sept 27 2005. I'm excited! She also has had a book out for a while, called Lord John and the Private Matter (yes, that Lord John). It was pretty good, and she's supposedly working on a modern mystery novel or two. If you are as much of a fanatic as I am, she also has a book called The Outlandish Companion, which is a reference-ish style companion to the series, covering the first four books, with background, stories on how she got started, some of her research, everyone's astrological charts, and all sorts of fun stuff.  [ send green star]  [ accepted]
