I love reading anything and everything I can get my hands on. However, as a mother of 3 energetic boys, I hardly get time to really select a good book. I read anything anyone gives me, but when the choice is left up to me, it is hard to choose. I value any and all spare time and hate to waste it reading something I am going to hate. So any good reccomendations out there?

If you like fantasy books, try books by Terry Prachett or Robert Rankin. I'm reading an excellent book at the minute called The Poisonwood Bible, it's about the end of the Belgian rule in the Congo.

It surprises to see so many people asking that question on here. I don't know how anyone can suggest books to you when they don't know you or your tastes. My tastes vary a bit but I've only read a couple of fantasy (no sci-fi, historical, war, politics) but I prefer general women's fiction and mysteries. If you like mysteries Lawrence Sanders has written a lot of great books. P.D. James is pretty good too. If you like general women's fiction and have had enough of Danielle Steel and Barbara Taylor Bradford, Maeve Binchy and Belva Plain are pretty good reads. So is Joy Fielding. For something a little different, Andrew M. Greeley is a catholic priest who writes Father Blackie Ryan mysteries as well as a series of Irish stories, and some stories with more of religious content (Contract with an Angel is a great story, and the God Game is hilarious). These are just a few of my favourite authors. You really have to find your own. What one person likes another may not. I have heard a lot of criticism of J.D. Robb a.k.a. Nora Roberts, but have also heard a lot of people as fans of hers. It just depends on your tastes and your desire for good writing.

I just discovered Christopher Moore. Both of the books I have read are so funny in a warped way. They were The stupidest angel and Island of the Sequined Love Nun. Laugh out loud funny!

I love the Cat who..... books. A series of Books that is written for all ages. Check it out in the libary. The main Characters are Quil and his two cats YumYum and Coco, who solve mysteries they always seem to stumble upon. If your boys are a little older, they might even enjoy them for a bed time story.
