I always have a different book going on each of my Kindles, including the app on my ipod, plus usually at least one or two hard copies or paperbacks, as well...Love Robin Cook, Jonathon Kellerman, Dean Koonz, and many of the "fluff" mystery series.  Never like to be caught without something to read!

I pick up many of my books at resale stores so I do not spend much on them.  I get both hard cover as well as paperback books I don't think I have spent more than $2.00 on a hardcover and most of the paperback books are $.50.
When my husband and I would go on vacation I would take 4 or 5 books and toss them in a bag to read in the car.  When I finished the book I would make a note in it like..."kept me company from Illinois to Mississippi I hope it brings you enjoyment as well"....I would then leave the book at a rest stop or in a hotel for someone else to enjoy.  I have been doing this for years and I hope people have enjoyed the books left by me in my travels.  I can not do this as much anymore because when we travel I have to drive so I can not read as much.  Also I have not had the chance to "go on vacation" in about 3 years.  It is not as much fun reading a book at home then leaving it someplace in town but I guess I could do that just as easily.

Glad you got all three.  They are a fast read and you will want to start the second as soon as you finish the first.
Let me know what you think of them.
I think it will be interesting to see who they get to play the characters in the movie.  There are several people that I have in mind but I almost think they could use 2 "new, unknown" actors and the movie would still do well. You have to keep in mind that the two main people are 21 and 27.  Who do you think would be a good choice for the movie. I suppose that is a good topic for another discussion.

Never too old!.  Pretty interesting reading not just the s3x but the emotional portion of the relationship.
(Forgive the strange "spelling" filters at work.)

I do buy a lot of books.  So many that we had to go out and buy a couple of new book cases to hold them all.  ( my husband reads a lot too, so it isn't just me)  However, I plan occasionally to gather up the ones I don't care to keep and take them to the local library and donate them.  They have "friends of the library" book sales several times a year, and sell the donated books for $.50-$1.00 to make money for the library. I also include cookbooks that I really don't use.

I am always looking for old cookbooks at sales.  I have found some treasures that way.  Some I have found one or two recipes and I am sure that I would be much better off making a photo copy of the recipe and putting it in a binder but I love looking through cookbooks.

At present, I am reading "The Dark Monk: A Hangman's Daughter" by Oliver Potzsch and Leo Chadesyne.  I just finished "Pierced by a Sword" by Bud MacFarlane, Jr.

I don't think it has anything to do with age. Several of my friends read it and thought it to be trash and they were not seniors.

Ann,
Your sense of humor always shines through. I haven't read Barbara Delinsky, but just on your recommendation will try one. Thanks.

At the moment, I am reading "A Cowboy Under My Christmas Tree" by Janet Dailey.  I noticed this on the library shelf the other day.....haven't read any of her books for quite some time.....figured I needed a bit of humor.....so brought it home.  She hasn't lost her touch!  Halfway through....hard to put it down.

I just picked uip two by Carl Hiaasen.  Talk about wacky books, his take the cake.  I also picked up two by Harlan Coben.  His mysteries always have some unexpected twists.

Oh yes!!! Excellent book. I hope that you get it and enjoy it as much as we did. We had the cd version that Bill O'Reilly read and let me tell you that our 6 hour auto trip flew by.

Great book. I am sure that you would love it. There was a lot of unknown information about John Wilkes Booth and Lincoln.
