I love to read & know alot of people do. I don't usually reccomend books on here but have read what i thought was two really good ones lately. Fisrt one is SAIL by James Patterson, i really like his books. The other one i just finished this morning. It is by Mary HIGGINS cLARK & THE TITLE IS 'JUST TAKE MY HEART'. mYSTERIES are my faves. if u get a chance to read them hope u enjoy them as much as i did.

I like to read. In particular, some good fiction or poetry. Can learn a lot of knowledge.. To enter their world, to know their feelings and their emotions. Noramal in real life can not be done, and the book I can figure to do together. Thank you for telling me that James Patterson book I have not read. I now go to the library reading his books.

I have read many many books but my absolute preference is Stephen King. I have about every one of his books and have even reread a few of them. I have read some of James Pattersons, Nora Roberts & others but have always gone back to Stephen King.

hi there i loooove reading too. and since u r a fan of mysteries, i should suggest something accordingly. one would be 'The Last Juror' by John Grisham. he is great, although only some people would njoy him. the second would be 'Dark Horse' by Tami Hoag. its a little explicit, but after reading this one, i felt that i hadnt enjoyed a good mystery for a while. it was sooooo good. try them, i hope u like them a lot...

thanks for the recommendation.... could you tell me what the books are about-- I have heard of both of those authors but have not read anything by them as of yet. I love to read too.... pretty obvious being my user name, and I read mostly historical romance, paranormal romance...and contemporary like Nora Roberts who always does a good mystery. Happy mylotting and happy reading.

I am not a reader but these sound like some really good books. I would rather for them to make a movie out of them so I could actually see the events unfold. I think it would be more interesting for me on my end.

GOOD morning Steph, hey, different strokes for different folks as the old saying goes. Hope they do make movies out of them, they would be good ones if they stick to the book. Sometimes they do & sometimes they don't. U hav a great day.

Two of the books I read this year which I recommend are "God Loves Fun" by His Holiness Sri Sri Ravi Shankar and "The White Tiger" by Aravind Adiga. I enjoyed both. While the former is a book on spiritual matters, the latter is an entertaining novel that gives you insights into the life of people from lower societies in rural India, their tribulations, interests and lifestyle.

i have two books to recommend also. First, is a book called"shadow in the wind"by Carlos Ruiz Zafon. This book is full of mystery,i could'nt put it down.The 2nd one is "my sisters keeper"by Jodi Picoult.You may have seen this title in the cinema recently,but the book is amazing. The last few chapters left my with tears streaming down my face,and theres a twist at the end that left me frustrated and in disbelief.

Hi! Sorry I've been absent for long and seems like I've missed a lot of discussions already. I've been too busy really so all I could afford is to join in one or two posts around. At any rate, I'm glad to participate in this post of yours. Thanks for those books you've recommended. They must really be good! Otherwise, you will not take time to recommend to us. I think I will find time to read them as well. Thanks my friend! Hope you are always fine!

If mysteries are your fave, then Steve Berry's books might definitely be for you! The Venetian Betrayal and The Templar Legacy are two of his best in my opinion. Double Tap was also really good. The immersion into history, along with the esoteric vernacular and situations are combined to create masterpieces!

Thanks for the tip on Berry. I don't think i have ever read anything by him. I will sure look for him tho. Thanks for your response. Have a great day.

hi you just mentioned two of my most favorite authors. I read one by Mary Higgins ClArk recently called He Knows When You Are Sleeping, and another one of my favorites is James Patterson's The Beach. a great read.I just discovered Patterson a few days back and really like his writing.I have been a Mary Higgins Clark fan for years now, and a fan of her daughter also. Oh yes I just read Sail also.

although i am a reader of modern and classical literature, i would recommend to many readers, specially those of the older generation, to read books in the highly improved genre of graphic novels. the writing is great and the visuals are astounding. to the young, graphic novels improve their aesthetics perception in literary and visual ways. try jimmy corrigan's the smartest kid in the world or alan moore's watchmen (forget the movie version, if you've seen it, try to erase it from your memory).

I havent read SAIL yet but I cant wait to read it. Two books I would recommend if you like mysteries are The Devil You Know by Mike Clark. This book is about an exorcist who uses the ghost to figure out how she came to be murdered. It is pretty interesting how Clark writes. The other is a book called Boneman's Daughter. This one is about a serial killer who breaks the bones of his victims before they die. It is rather interesting I just finished reading it.

I haven't read Mary Higgins Clark in years. I'll have to pick that one up. I Love Patterson though! Have you read his "non" mystery books? I've read all of the Alex Cross series. Then I picked up "Suzanne's Diary for Nicholas" and it was awesome. Totally different from his usual. I just finished "Sunday's at Tiffany's", also great. He is so talented.
