    I actually bought a real life paper book today ~ I didn't even make it to the library. Harland Coben's Play Dead.

    Never heard of the author ~ but looks good!

    I am currently reading "The Big Bad Wolf" by James Patterson. It is the 9th book in the 16 book (so far!) series featuring super detective Alex Cross.

    I was looking at his books, but I wasn't sure which one was first or if even a sequel. I read a series of his once, Scott. It was so good and twisted!

    I can't recall what it was.:(

    James Patterson has several series. Here are the Alex Cross books in order --
    Alex Cross - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Clive and his son Dirk Cussler are coming to the St. Louis County Library in November and I plan on seeing them speak.

    I am just waiting for the next Steve Berry and James Rollins books to be released.

    The top way to annoy the French is to be English-speaking, in other words British, America, Canadian etc. Everything that's ever gone wrong in France is an "Anglo-Saxon plot" against them. They don't realise that the Irish, Scots and Welsh are Celts!

    You have to love her style before you tackle "Hammerfall". I've read about 35 of her works, half scifi opera and half fantasy.
    Scifi opera is a slow buildup kind of story. It's a complex situation with slow action and in her case, beautiful writing. She's renowned for being a 'builder of worlds' more than the military starship kind of scifi. She has several series such as 'Chanur' and my favorite, the 'Foreigner' series.

    And lets give a big welcoming call-out to all our fellow iPad users in France, Quebec and other french speaking parts of the world.

    This is an international forum. Do you really want to generalize like this?
