Since we'll have separate threads for Star Wars books, this is the place to discuss all that other stuff that clutters the bookshelf. Wink

So...

Read any good books lately? Very Happy

Harry Potter. Very Happy

Oh, come on. You know you have to. Read it all in one day -- started at 10 am and finished at 1 am. Now it's time to re-read them all.

Also, I'm reading the J.D. Robb (Nora Roberts) "in Death" books. I used to read them right away. Then they started putting them out in hardcover. I like these books, but they are in no way worth that price. So I've fallen behind. But they're great, light reading. And I don't think I have to worry about major character death. Evil or Very Mad

I've made it to chapter 14 in HP. A crazy work schedule plus getting things going here have slowed me down, but I'm getting into it now, LOL.

When I've finished, I've got the latest Patricia Cornwell (Kay Scarpetta) book to read. Looking forward to that!

I too read the last HP book in a marathon session. Spoilers are allowed here, correct? I'm afraid to say more until I'm sure.
Sooo glad the site's back up!
Very Happy

I've read HPDH twice now. Need to start on a third read. Wink

And, Trace--I love the Kay Scarpetta novels! But the last one I read was called... wait, was it called Trace? Laughing It had a silver cover... I fell out of reading them while reading HP and, well, fanfic, but she's always had a place in my heart. I would LOVE a Scarpetta movie! I even have the Chrismas book Cornwell put out full of Kay's recipes! LOL!

That's a good question. I think a few of us (myself included) haven't finished it yet. It would probably be a good idea to start a separate HP&theDH thread and tag it for spoilers.

ginchy: Very Happy Luuuuuv me some Kay Scarpetta!! Yep, the last book I read was Trace, too. (Read it while flying to and from C 4.) Just picked up Predator - it's already in paperback. I also fell behind with those books, but am getting caught up now that the EU sucks out loud.

I love that series, too. Haven't read Twelve yet. But she also writes some other stuff, which I wasn't too crazy about.

Another good series with lots of humor -- Donna Andrews writes murder mysteries with animals as their focus, or in the title. I think the last one I read was "Owls Well that Ends Well".

If you like funny, I recommend anything by Robert Asprin, well, at least his earlier stuff... it's sad, but the man really should have stayed off the wagon. Sad

But Another Fine Myth and Phule's Company are hillarious if you like dry to medium-wet humour. Very Happy

Right now I'm reading a mystery series by Elizabeth Peters. It takes place in exotic settings. I also love the mystery series by Joanna Fluke. It has fun and lovable characters. The main character is a bakery owner who sleuths Laughing Yummy recipes included!!! Lots of cheesecakes and cookies and pies. Very Happy
Also read the mystery novels of Anne Perry. These are cool because they take place in Victorian England and it's a husband and wife who do the sleuthing. Love strong women!!! Is that why I love Mara so much? Duh!!! Smile
