I recently finished Anne Rice's 'the Witching Hour' and am almost done with A.Lee Martinez's 'Gil's All Fright Diner'.What next?

I read general musharaf's biography recently"in the line of fire" found it rubbish written in self praise.How nice he is and how wrong he is percieved by the world,how manipulated he is by USA.Got fed up with his blabbing.

I rad the Witching Hour! I loved it!!! You have got to read the following books if you liked the Witching Hour..... caled Taltos and Lasher. Another good series is the Eternity (Immortal High Witch series) by Maggie Shayne. She knows how to grip you from the very beginning!! Highly suggested!

You will not regret it! If you liked the Witching Hour, you will like Enterity and the other 3 books. Note, the third book was in an anthology but just last year she released it by itself.

comics - comics, book, read
nah! I don't read books, and I hate to say this that I hate them. I am not a book lover, but I do read once in awhile but not books but comics:) LOL.

I really like factual books and I have started to read one called "Six World Faiths" by W. Owen Cole. It's basically an introduction to 6 of the best known faiths eg. Judaism, Hinduism, Christianity. I've only read about the first 20 or so pages but it is very interesting. I've found out some interesting things, some not even anything to do with the actual faiths!

'Ya know when I was in school I did that,read everything about the world I could.I guess I burned myself out 'cause now I need the fantasy stuff.Or maybe the world just wasn't as ineresting once I was actually out in it.Anyway,it's way cool that you read.;-)

relaxation.. - an open book
Yes, I just read "Forever Odd" by Dean Koontz. I'm always on the look out for his new books, as I think I've read all of his past ones. His next one is out in hardcover "Brother Odd" now or sometime this month. I may stop at the library and see if they have it. My all time favorite Dean Koontz book is "Twilight Eyes" and "Lightning" - but they're all good! Some of them are chilling.. but mostly they just have these wierd twists.. especially some of his earlier ones, with some more chilling ones more recently like "One Door Away From Heaven"(?) "The Taking" (?) - I like Ken Follett - James Patterson! - John Grisham. - Is "the witching Hour" one of Anne Rice's new books.. I heard she converted to Christianity, and I'm curious to read her new book(s)..

Yeah,I like Dean too.I usually go up to the used book store to buy books.So I read a mix of old and new.The Witching Hour is old,'93 and the first of the Lasher set.I'll get the other when I find it.The book I'm reading is new,the writer's first.Thank you so much for responding.I was begining to think I was the only one who still read books.

I just finished reading To Kill a Mockingbird... even though it's a classic and u might have already read it I would suggest reading it again. I'm also a huge fan of Mary Higgins Clark books. One of my favorite books by her is Daddy's Little Girl... it's an amazing book!

I just finished "Blue Like Jazz" which is one man's views on Christian spirituality. I'm not sure if I enjoyed it or would say it was a good book, though it was interesting to read and see the authors views on things.

I have not read any good books lately other than a Windows Server 2000 book and a book about The Rock, a former WWE wrestler. What books do you recommend a guy read?

I unfortunately haven't had the chance to read anything new--the last book I got is collecting dust on the movie shelf...LoL!! But someone that I have found to be a good author is Tami Hoag.
