I plan on writing all of these authors down as I will NEVER remember them. I too have to write down which ones I have read - as I'm on the James Patterson ones now - or I won't remember which one and I'll be halfway through it before I realize I've already read it. I love true crime and mysteries so there are a lot of authors that you guys have mentioned that I've never heard of but plan on checking out. THANKS.

P.S. I was just at a doctor's appointment with my husband and I forgot my book and was so mad at myself. Every magazine at the office was either taken or so outdated and I would have loved to have had a book to read. Now that I'm able to read again it's like I look for opportunities to be able to crack it open and start reading. I am such an avid tv watcher and with the fall lineup soon to start I probably won't read as much until bedtime. I have also come to love our local library and never realized what a great resource it is to have.

Warm hugs,

G'day! (I've just read some Aussie biographies, so forgive me, OK?)

I've heard of both hospitals and nursing homes taking used books. Another place that likes them is community senior centers. It's kind of neat to see what turns up on those shelves!

I haven't read JD Robb yet, but she's on my list too! I've got some mixed feelings about Jeffrey Deaver, too. I've read most of Patricia Cornwell's Kay Scarpetta series, but she's like Deaver - a little too dark for me. (So why do I keep reading them?!)

Susan Wittig Albert would probably be a hit with anyone who likes Diana Davidson.

I love my local library too, even more so since they now have a little coffee shop. :rolleyes:

A friend lives in Brooklyn OH and their local library is stupendous. They have a permanent exhibition of quilts, seem to get every new book in audio and large print form as well as the regular format. And they are extremely helpful in getting stuff in on inter-library loan. And it is never, ever cold in there. Perfection...

Peggy, I belong to a mystery book club and find alot of new authors in their monthly magazine or on their website. I write them down and then check to see if the library has anything by them.

Love makes the world go around!

I did try to read JD Roberts as one of my friend raved about her. But the series she suggested were too gruesome for me!! I can't remember the exact title, but the series had the worth "death" in all of the titles. I read one chapter and stopped.
