How Many Books Are In The Odd Thomas Series

Roughly how many books do you own. Do you keep them after you read them or pass them on to a friend.

ALOT. Although usually I read them and see if any of my friends would enjoy them and then if not i sell them to a used bookstore. Of course the growing pressure to be “COOL” is causing people to become more illiterate. Also some reccomended reading: Darkly Dreaming Dexter ( And the two sequels) By Jeff Lindsay, And The Odd Thomas series by Dean Koontz

I need a good book for a plane ride. Suggestions.

I love mysteries/thrillers. I’m open also to romance/fantasy/sci fi. I DONT want any horror while on the plane, thanks.

Dresden file book series by Jim Butcher.There are 8 books in the series beginning with stormfront.Each novel in the series is told from the fictional perspective of Harry Blackstone Copperfield Dresden (named by his father after Harry Houdini, Harry Blackstone, Sr., and David Copperfield). Dresden is the only professional wizard in modern-day Chicago (he is in the phone book, under “Wizards”).In the world of The Dresden Files, magic is real, along with vampires, demons, spirits, faeries, werewolves, and more. The general public that Harry Dresden works to protect does not believe in magic or the large array of dark forces which regularly conspire against them. This makes it tough for Harry to get by as a working wizard and private eye.He is aided by Bob,a talking skull.Karrin Murphy-a police officer and Thomas-a white court vampire.Read Odd thomas,Forever odd and Brother Odd by Dean Koontz.These books are about Odd Thomas who see dead people and is compelled to solve crimes.Brother Odd by Dean Koontz is the third book in his Odd Thomas series. Poor Odd has been through so much in the last couple of years. He lost Stormy, the love of his life, he’s given up his job and his home to move into seclusion at a California mountainside monastery in hopes that his “gift” for seeing the dead won’t be an issue up there. Instead he finds a poltergeist monk and evil spirits gathering around the young disabled children the monks (and nuns) care for. Odd knows that trouble is coming, and as usual he’s the only one to recognize it.Can Odd mitigate the coming cataclysm? Of course he can, despite the arrival of murderous bone creatures and grim Death itself, for the monks include quite a contingent of reformed martial sinners, most memorably Brother Knuckles, formerly of the New Jersey Mob, and another guest, a mysterious Russian librarian from Indianapolis, who is more and different than Odd thinks he is.Reilly’s Luck by Louis L’Amour.This story starts off with a young boy, Val Darrant, being abandoned by his mother.(she tells her boyfriend to kill him).Val ends up being cared for by Will Reilly who is a gambler.Turns out to be the best gamble Reilly ever made.The first quarter of the book is about adventures that Will and Val have. They have to deal with outlaws, they fight off Indians, and they travel to Europe.Unfortunately Will is ambushed by three men and killed while Val is still a teenager. But Val has learned many important lessons from Will. The next part of the book is about Val growing up. He has some money and is able to invest the money in a couple ventures.The story then jumps forward a couple years, and the last part of the book pulls together many of the threads. Val finally meets his mother, who is again trying to have him killed. Val kills the last two of Will’s murderers. And Val financially destroys the man who hired the murderers.The Daybreakers,Fair blows the wind,Galloway,Flint are also good books by the same author.Another good series is the Dark Hunter series by Sherrilyn Kenyon.The books provide an alternate take on vampires.People who are unjustly murdered call upon Artemis(Greek goddess) and she grants them a day to avenge themselves.After that they are recruited to her army to fight against evil.These are romance novels.Best of the series are ‘Dance with the devil’ and ‘Seize the night’.Dragonjousters book series(joust,alta,sanctuary,Aerie) by Mercedes Lackey.The setting is ancient Egypt.Hunger, anger, and hatred are constants for young Vetch, rendered a brutally mistreated and overworked serf by the Tian conquest of his homeland. But everything improves when a Tian jouster requisitions Vetch to become the first serf ever to be a dragon boy. His training is intense, and his duty clear-cut: to tend his jouster, Ari, and his dragon, Kashet. That is only the beginning.The rest of the books are about how he gets a dragon of his own,his escape to Alta,how the war between the two kingdoms is stopped etc.The door to december by Dean Koontz.A psychiatrist’s daughter was kidnapped by her ex-husband years ago. When the daughter is finally found, the real fight begins. One by one the people who held her captive become mysteriously tortured and killed. Everyone is afraid the young girl will be next.The mystery unravels as to what happened to the young girl while she was kidnapped. The young girl, Melanie, is unable to speak, but her mother soon learns that the young girl went through extreme torture as her father used her for a rat in his experiments.The Vivero letter by Desmond Bagley.Jeremy Wheale’s well-ordered life is torn apart when his brother is murdered by a mob hit man, whose bait was a family heirloom – a sixteenth-century gold tray. The trail takes Wheale from Devon to Mexico and the wild tropical rain forests of Yucatan. In dense jungle, he helps two archaeologists locate the rest of a fabled hoard of gold – treasure from Uaxuanoc, the centuries-old lost city of the Mayas. But his brother’s enemies are on Wheale’s trail, and with them are the Chicleros, a vicious band of convict mercenaries.Landslide by Desmond Bagley.Bob Boyd wakes up in a hospital with no memory,the only surviver of an accident.He was burned badly all over and needed extensive plastic surgery which was payed by a mysterious sponser.He is told that he’s a geology student with a bad past.However Bob recovers and gets on with his life.Hired by the powerful Matterson Corporation to survey land before they build a great new dam, he begins to uncover the shaky foundations of the Matterson family and becomes a fly in their ointment.His accident and the Matterson family have more in common than he thought.Bourne Identity by Robert Ludlum.Forget the movie.The book is the real article.”The Bourne identity” is the story of a man without a past, rescued from the Mediterranean Sea by some fishermen. He is very ill, and his body has suffered the impact of many bullets. The man is taken by the fishermen to a doctor in a nearby island, who helps him to recover physically and mentally. Our protagonist doesn’t remember who he is, but with the help of the doctor he finds some clues he doesn’t like too much. He only knows for certain some things, for instance that his face has been altered by plastic surgery, that he knows a lot about firearms and that he carried on him a microfilm that contains the code to an account of four million dollars.In the Swiss bank where the account is he also finds a name: Jason Bourne. But… is he Jason Bourne?. He cannot remember, and if it were for quite a few people, he won’t. From the moment he leaves the island onwards, our man without a past will be followed, and attacked. He doesn’t understand why, but he reacts in order to stay alive. Add to this already interesting mixture a woman he takes as a hostage, Marie, a number of assasins (including the most famous assassin in the world, Carlos), and the possibility that he is, as a matter of fact, also an assassin, and you will understand why this book is so good. The main character will be hunted all throughout the book not only by the “bad guys”, but also by the “good” ones (mainly agents from the USA Government). You won’t be able to stop reading this book, and you will find yourself asking aloud to nobody in particular “who on earth is this man?” and “what started this whole mess”?.Warning:A character gets raped.Its about a fairy Splendour who is ordered to marry a human( a duke).The poor hero is confused by the woman who will shrink if not kissed regularly,drinks apricot face lotion.On top of that he is harassed by splendour’s sister who even turns him into a snail.His cousin Emil thinks that Splendour is exactly what the doctor ordered for the staid ,boring Jordan.Really great romance novelsYou belong to me-Johanna lindseyA dark champion,Born in sin-Kinley MacgregorAngel rogue,One perfect rose,The wild child-Mary jo PutneyMary Balogh-Slightly tempted,A famous heroine,The temporary wifeThe de burgh bride-Deborah SimmonsIsn’t it romantic-Ronda ThompsonHow to treat a lady-Karen Hawkins(and the rest of the Talisman ring series)Lord of the storm,The sky pirate-Justine DavisTracy anne warren-The wife trap

I need something new to read.

I am a major bookworm. I love to read ANYTHING. What’s your favorite book?

The Twilight series is of course wonderful.Books by Sophie Kinsella are great (think, legally blonde-esqe)like, Confessions of a Shopaholic series, and my favorite, The Undomestic Goddess.The Dead Until Dark saga, by Charlaine Harris. If you like HBO’s “TrueBlood’, check it out. It was the series inspiring TrueBlood.”Are You There Vodka? Its Me, Chelsea.” By Chelsea Handler (Host of E!’s “Chelsea Lately”. Probably the funniest book ever.”The Shack” — very complex, deep. very ispiring.”The Heroin Diaries: A Year in the Life of a Shattered Rockstar” The story of Motley Crue’s bassist, Nikki Sixx. Who had severe drug problems. The Band Sixx AM (Nikki Sixx, DJ Ashba, and James Michael) was formed to record songs inspired by the book. Amazing book, Favorite band.The Maximum Ride series is great.Despite the sterotype of Nicole Richie (though i am a fan!), her book, “The Truth About Diamonds” is great.The Blue Bloods Series by Melissa De La Cruz is good.Stargirl, By Jerry Spinelli. Also it’s sequel, Love, Stargirl. They are for a seemingly younger crowd, but the lead character could capture the heart of someone any age.Hope you check these out. These are just some of my favorites.

Tonight is my turn to pick the book for my book club to read for next month…..

Which book should I pick? I am trying to decide among:1. The Sirens of Titan, by Kurt Vonnegut2. Odd Thomas, by Dean Koontz3. Triple Cross, by Kit EhrmanOr perhaps you have another suggestion. It shouldn’t be a really long book 300 – 400 pages.

Well it all depends on what your group members usually like to read.. (which books did they enjoy most so far?)The Sirens of Titan is a classic Science Fiction novel, so do they usually like science fiction? It would be interesting to discuss it, contrasting it with, say, Slaughterhouse Five, because a lot of themes and motives are to be found in Sirens of Titan.Odd Thomas is horror, how many members like horror novels? A lot of people seem to like Dean Koontz, who is quite trendy at the moment. It really depends on your taste and, as I said, on the other members!And Triple Cross is a mystery with lots on races.. it’s the fifth of a series I think, which means that you could also have an interesting discussion about the earlier novels..I would personally lean towards the Vonnegut book.And if I were to choose a book, I would choose a woman writer, such as maybe Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie (who just got the Orange Prize for fiction for Half of a Yellow Sun), or the excellent rewriting of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde, from the point of view of a maid, Mary Reilly by Valerie Martin (great movie as well with Julia Roberts and John Malkovich)But, as I said, it depends on what you feel would be most appreciated by group members!!

Any good books. Any genre is good.

Also classic books . Ive also read the secret garden, jayne eyre, lord of the flies, catcher in the rye, to kill a mockingbird 😀

Dean Koontz books are always a treat. I’d suggest trying “The Taking” or the “Odd Thomas” series. Both are very good, full of suspense, Odd is pretty humorous and sad at the same time, but very amusing!”The Host” by Stephanie Meiyer is great. No vamps or were-wolves though. It will make you think!”Eragon” is a great series, I only read the first and second, no idea how many are out now.”Hawk” is a good romance novel, where the main character goes back in time to Scotland and meets Hawk. There are faeries in this novel.Anything by laurel K Hamilton. The Anita Blake series is about a zombie-raising, vamp slaying, tough girl who gets in too close with the super natural creatures. It’s a great series, and funny, sad, suspenseful and so much more. Also try anything from the Merry Gentry series. This series is about a faery princess who needs to get pregnant in order to be crowned queen, but must do so before her cousin impregnates a faery first. It’s kind of political, has sex scenes and romance, and is a good read.Hope this helped

WHAT BOOK SERIES SHOULD I START… (I’m desperate).

I am a bookworm and have read and re-read all my books, and am in the mood for something new.

Since you didn’t tell us how old your are or what types of books you enjoy, I’m going to list books of all genres for kids, teens, and adults.Oh: Try this web site, too. This lady has the most WONDERFUL lists of books, divided by age group. You’ll surely find something you love there.Books and More for Kids and Adultshttp://booksandmore4kids.googlepages.com…Series for kids and/or teens:Madeleine L’Engle’s “Time” Quintet (although if you’re an adult and have never read these books, you really need to read them and then share them with your kids):A Wrinkle in TimeA Wind in the DoorA Swiftly Tilting PlanetAn Acceptable TimeMany WatersThere’s also Lucy Maud Montgomery’s “Anne of Green Gables” series. Start with the book of that title and if you love it, there are 7 more books by L.M. Montgomery that are about Anne as she grows up and her marriage and children. There is also a new book, recently released, called “Before Green Gables” (I think), that is about Anne’s parents and her childhood before the Green Gables series began.If you like mysteries, try the Trixie Belden series. There are a lot of books, but the best ones are the first 5. After the 5th book, they’re not all that great.Trixie Belden and the Secret of the MansionTrixie Belden and the Red Trailer MysteryTrixie Belden and the Gatehouse MysteryTrixie Belden and the Mysterious VisitorTrixie Belden and the Mystery off Glen RoadElizabeth Enright’s “Melendy family” quartet and “Gone-away Lake” duo can be hard to find in bookstores, but your library should have them and Amazon.com usually is able to get them.- The Saturdays- The Four-Story Mistake- And Then There were Five- Spiderweb for Two* Gone-Away Lake* Return to Gone-AwayAnd how about the “Magic” series by Edward Eager:Half MagicMagic by the LakeTime GardenKnight’s CastleMagic or Not?Well-WishersSeven-Day MagicSeries for (mainly) adults:Diana Gabaldon’s OUTLANDER series (you have never met a sexier, hunkier, lovelier man in fiction than Jamie Fraser):- Outlander (called ‘Cross-Stitch’ in the UK)- Dragonfly in Amber- Voyager- Drums of Autumn- The Fiery Cross- A Breath of Snow & AshesAdriana Trigiani’s BIG STONE GAP series:- Big Stone Gap- Big Cherry Holler- Milk Glass Moon- Home to Big Stone GapAlso by Adriana Trigiana- Lucia, LuciaElizabeth Buchan’s WIVES duo:- Revenge of the Middle-Aged Woman- Wives Behaving Badly (this is the sequel)Jasper Fforde’s THURSDAY NEXT series (be sure you read the copyright page, all the footnotes, the adverts in the back -it’s all relevant! The books are set in an alternate universe where some things are identical with our earth and some things are ….. most definitely not! His books are very funny, but it’s a type of funny that sometimes borders on the bizarre.):- The Eyre Affair- Lost in a Good Book- The Well of Lost Plots- Something Rotten- Thursday Next: First Among SequelsDean Koontz’ ODD THOMAS series (he sees dead people, but it isn’t horror):- Odd Thomas- Forever Odd- Brother Odd- Odd HoursThe Fionavar Tapestry Books by Guy Gavriel Kay:- The Summer Tree- The Wandering Fire- The Darkest RoadAnd then there are Katherine Kurtz’s Deryni books. Some of these books are out of print and can be hard to find even in a used book store, but it’s worth finding them all. To read them by their internal chronology, the order is:* Camber of Culdi* Saint Camber* Camber the Heretic* The Harrowing of Gwynedd* King Javan’s Year* The Bastard Prince* In the King’s Service* Childe Morgan* Deryni Rising* Deryni Checkmate* High Deryni* The Bishop’s Heir* The King’s Justice* The Quest for Saint Camber* King Kelson’s BrideMarion Zimmer Bradley has written a brilliant retelling of the King Arthur legend: The Mists of Avalon. The legend is retold from the point of view of the women. She has also written quite a number of books that come before “Mists” and are centered on the mystical island of Avalon (*not* Glastonbury!) and the community of women who worship the Goddess. Whether or not you’re interested in reading the entire series, “Mists” is a book you won’t want to pass up.Although they’re not a series, Gregory McGuire’s fairy-tale retellings are brilliant:- Wicked- Mirror, Mirror- Confessions of an Ugly Stepsister- LostRichard North Patterson has written a number of books that are legal thrillers. The characters overlap – all the books are related but it isn’t truly a “series.”* The Lasko Tangent* The Outside Man* Escape The Night* Private Screening* Degree of Guilt* The Final Judgment(also published as Caroline Masters)* Eyes of a Child* Silent Witness* No Safe Place* Dark Lady* Protect and Defend* Balance of Power* Conviction* Exile* The Race

How many Odd Thomas books are there.

I just finished the first and I thought there was only one more that just came out not too long ago. But my friend tells me it’s a whole series.Anyone know how many there are?And are they all as good as the first? (I cried when Stormy died 🙁 )

There are five booksOdd ThomasBrother OddIn Odd We TrustForever OddOdd HoursI only read the first two and I like Odd Thomas better than I liked the second one

  1. Farewell, My LovelyI have lost count of the many books in my collection. I’m very pleased when someone has a need to read or own one of them and I give them away. There are some that I still keep for my own needs. Buying books is one of my favorite things to do in my off days.

  2. The Lady in the LakeHis Dark Materials by Phillip PullmanHis Dark Materials by Philip Pullman (Trilogy)The Alex Rider series (7 books), Raven’s Gate and following books- By Anthony Horowitz.Try the Pit Dragon series by Jane Yolen.Have you read Alain de Botton’s “The Art of Traveling”? I read a paperback with lots of photos and good description with samples why and what we should do while traveling, philosophically speaking. I assure you’d get new ideas or views of life from the book, it’s not a serious one, it’s for anyone interested in applied/practical philosophy with some good ideas of looking at things.Need by Carrie JonesThe High Window”Odd Thomas” is excellent. I’m actually reading the second one now, “Forever Odd.” It’s a fast read, the characters are interesting, and it’s a great story.

  3. The Road—Cormac McCarthyThere is an Agatha Christie type detective series of books by an Australian Author, Kelly Greenwood called The Phryne Fisher Mysteries which is my favourite. It’s set in Melbourne in the 1920’s, Phryne Fisher is the lady detective and she’s edgy and sassy and it’s loads of fun, well worth the read.

  4. http://www.readbookonline.net/Academic: “The Fountainhead” and “Atlas Shrugged” by Ayn Rand; “The Poisonwood Bible” by Barbara KingsolverThe Road—Cormac McCarthyYou will like this one: “The Hummingbird’s Daughter”, by Luis Urrea (ISBN 9780316154529)My 1st recommendation is The Purpose Driven Life by Dr Rick Warren. There after, you will know what are the books that follow without the need to ask.

  5. Jane Austen’s booksSkellig—David AlmondThe book I last read on a flight (and didn’t get very far through on the 2-hour plane ride) was ‘Roma Eterna,’ by Robert Silverberg. I thought the premise was intriguing: Connected short stories from the alternate-history premise that the Roman Empire survives. So far the story about the exiled Roman meeting Mohammed is the most interesting, I think. If you like scifi, you may like this book (probably appropriate, in both reading level and content, for bright 14-year-olds and over; it’s written for adults.)

  6. The Little Sisterwell that goes for me too. I’m also a bookworm and the series i love to read now is the “Twilight Saga” written by Stephenie Meyer.It’s a very sweet and romantic love story about a vampire and a human girl. A lot of people have also read this and it is a very popular novel. if you like love stories, this is the best book for you:D(*)

  7. Painted Blue by Laura Fogarty. It is about a girl growing up in a dysfunctional southern catholic family. It is hilarious and also a little bit shocking at times. This is my favorite book, it is a must read! You can find it on amazon.com.Hearts in AtlantisOne of my favorites is “The Secret Garden”. I read that at least a dozen times when I was younger. You can read it for free: http://girlebooks.com/blog/free-ebooks/t

  8. Two others that come to mind are “The Alienist” and “The Angel of Darkness” by Caleb Carr Both are masterpieces in my opinion.Very good series, actucally. It’s worth reading.In my current flat I have around 250 books, and I have read most of them.I have at least 3,000.I’ve been putting them into an file so I can stop buying duplicates. But I have at least 600 more. I have two steamer trunks and am not sure how many paperbacks fit inside them, but they are full. I do let my friends borrow some of them and some are traded in if after the third read I didn’t like them anymore. I believe I’ve read about 90% of them.

  9. I have about 60 books. If I really like them or spent a good amount of money on them I keep them. The others I usually pass on to friends or family that like that type of book or I donate them to my local library that holds used book sales twice a year to raise money. It is also where I buy a fair amount of my paperbacks for usually 25 – 50 cents, then after I’m done reading them I donate them back.

  10. By the way, you can find a lot of great ebooks for free at girlebooks.comJessica Darling sequence: Sloppy First, 2nd Helpings, Charmed Thirds and Fourth Comings, and the subsequent e book which hasn’t been released yet. this is approximately this female. i does not say this is a female e book although this is great. This e book isn’t myth or journey in any respect so i’m uncertain in case you will like it. Plus between the character’s call has the comparable call as Manda and she or he’s style of… properly… so now i’m notably helpful you will not like it yet… brushing off the certainty that Manda is between the adversarial characters interior the story. No magic, no scuffling with (different than one catfight between the antagonists) right here.

  11. The locket by EvansI stock up periodically- I hate going home after work and browsing all over the place without finding something I feel like reading… and I even panick!!WHAT ON EARTH AM I HERE FOR???Now take in mind not all of his novels are horror.The Big SleepSounds lame but really excellent books and highly addictive. There’s a hope heap of them and she’s still writing so just start from the beginning and you should be kept occupied for a while!

  12. you can read theseMy 9 month old also loves books. He has a couple of boxes already and loves to stack them across the house.

  13. Most have to do with group situation and how we solve problems.State of FearThe Summoning by Kelley ArmstrongDeadly Little Secret by Laurie StolarzAny book by Wilbur Smith – The River God, Seventh Scroll, and the Quest need to be read in the correct order though ~

  14. Douglas Preston’s “The Codex” is a great book and not too long. Three half-brothers (same father, different mothers), find out thier wealthy father has taken the loot he made (plundering the tombs of Central and South Americas) to be entombed with him. If they want an inheritance they must work together and rob their father’s final resting place. Can the boys keep greed from getting the best of them? Who is this pharmaceutical researcher that is after their father? Can she be trusted?

  15. I like the Twilight Saga but since you are a bookworm, you have already read it like nine times already! Ha! I love those books…I don’t know how old are you, or what genre of books you like. But I’ll list my favourites for you..Sometimes when I’m looking for a good new book to read I’ll search the best sellers lists online. 🙂

  17. When it Happens by Susane ColasantiBut my number one suggestion is “The Road” by Cormac McCarthy. I just read it recently. It’s short, right to the point, and just so………scary. Not, perhaps, in a thriller-movie kind of way, but because it’s about a post-apocalyptic America. Everything in the news I just think, “it’s like ‘The Road’ AAAHHH!” If you get that book, don’t read any spoilers about it!

  18. A Mexican Indian girl is the daughter of the owner of a hacienda, and her mother abandons her. She is raised to be a curandera (which some people define as a “shaman”, but that is not accurate). She gets involved in rebellions against the Mexican government and is expelled from Mexico, and dies in the US at the age of 33, but not before she becomes rather famous. She still has a large following even today, as people pray to her for miracles. She is a “folk saint”.

  19. A Wizard of Earthsea by Ursula Le Guin (Trilogy)The Kite Runner was a good book – gives you some insight into Afghanistan before, after and during Taliban. I also read a book by Alice Hoffman called Fortune’s Daughter. Her writing is pretty unique – in this story two people end up connecting (a psychic who reads tea leaves and a young pregnant woman) and both grow from the experience.Queuing for Beginners: The Story of Daily Life from Breakfast to Bedtime—Joe Moran

  20. Because you said you’re willing for a challenge academically and mentally…………Anyway, I like Vampire Academy and Meg Cabot’s Airhead. They are really good books and it will keep you reading. I love ’em!

  21. Actually, most books by Michael Crichton are fantastic – especially the ones that HAVEN’T been made into movies…

  22. On the lighter side, the Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy series is very entertaining and clever, and there’s about 4 or 5 books to keep you occupied.

  23. Have you ever thought of the purpose of your life? Have you wonder why you are born to your parents? What are the gifts that you inherited from them? Why are you such a good reader? What can you do with your gift?

  24. Inkheart series by Cornelia FunktThe Phantom of the Operahttp://www.balajisebookworld.com/page_3.htmlThe Picture of Dorian GrayMy favorite book is Chicken Soup for the UNSINKABLE SOUL. I broke a bone in my foot in July 2008 and I was out of work for 2 months so I read alot, chilled at the river met new friends. But I love the book the best. I also love Sex for Dummies. I just wish I could apply some knowledge to sex with women.You might want to have a go at something more… profound. You’ve made a good start with “Romeo & Juliet”, now go ahead and build upon that. If you like Shakespeare, that would be the natural place to start. Other than that, from what you’ve written I believe that you would like Shirley Jackson (esp. “Haunting of Hill House”), Henry James (esp. “The Turn of the Screw”), Jane Austen (“Pride & Prejudice”, perhaps also “Emma”), and maybe even Walter Scott (“Ivanhoe” – but that one is a tough cookie).Currently five. Koontz has said there’ll be a sixth and that’s it.Favorite e-book: Summerland by way of Elin Hilderbrand Favorite creator: Elin Hilderbrand Favorite style: Romance and Teen Fiction Favorite man or woman: Either Hobby Alistair, Jake Randolph, or Penny Alistair.

  25. Hundreds. I love buying books. On occasion I’ll pass a book along to a friend who’s interested in reading it. Once on a rare occasion I’ll sell books. Sometimes my friends and I will do a book swap to mix things up a bit.Chuck KlostermanFree e-BooksI’ve recently begun reading more classics:It will make you think, to say the least

  30. Nightmares and Dreamscapes (Short stories)There are 19,000 free ebooks in the Project Gutenberg Online Book Catalogue.Robert Asprin and Terry Pratchett are both fast reading authors. Asprin “Time Scout” series co-written with Linda Evans is wonderful and not too far out. “Going Postal” by Pratchett is fantastic.well ‘prom nights from hel’l are a selection of short stories from different authors including meg cabot and stephenie meyer that are teen romantic sci-fi fantasy. check that out

  31. His Dark Materials- By Philip Pullman.Plum Island by Nelson Demille is action packed and suspenseful as are many of his others. Plum Island is unique in my mind an easy enjoyable read. One of the few books I have read more than once.Or if you’re into something a little more “grown up”, try the Dexter series by Jeff Lindsay. “Darkly Dreaming Dexter” and “Dearly Devoted Dexter” are the first two. Can’t necessarily recommend the third book in the series since I haven’t read it yet.J.G. Ballardhttp://www.readprint.com/

  32. Jane EyreThe Celebration of Women Writers.Have you ever read any Laurell Hamilton? She has a series about a vampire executioner named Anita Blake. The first books in the series are really good. Sherrilyn Kenyon writes a series about Dark Hunters. I don’t really consider either series horror.A Scanner Darkly, Ubik, Do Androids Dream of Electric Sleep?, and Flow My Tears, The Policeman Said

  33. I like the series too. It helps to balance some of the crappola Mr. koontz has penned. I didn’t shed any tears for Mary Sue. I mean Stormy.

  34. Perhaps these are the books that you should be looking at. The challenge will not be how fast you read it but how much you can perceive and get out of the book. Challenge in life changing experience.There are a few decent John Grisham books, and Michael Connelly writes some decent stuff too. You could also go with classics like “Jane Eyre”, “Pride & Prejudice”, “Sense & Sensibility”, etc.Twilight sucked, I wonder how many recommendation’s you’ll get, and how many thumbs down will I get! 😛

  35. CheersTry “The Good Guy” by Dean Koontz. You won’t be disappointed. Good read from start to finish.

  36. I was just at Barnes and Noble today and here is a book that I thought looked fantastic. It’s called Forever by Pete Hamill. It’s about a man who arrives in NYC in 1740 and lives there forever. He sees the changes of time through the people and culture. Doesn’t that sound interesting? Here is the link so you can read the summary for yourself:Sex, Drugs, and Cocoa Puffs

  37. I own around 300 books and I keep pretty much all of them. Sometimes I do pass books along to a friend of one of my sisters, but I always get them back when they are finished. Unless I really hate a book, I can’t really bring myself to get rid of it. I would say that I’ve only read about 80% of the books that I do own, but I keep buying more books, even when I don’t need more, just because there are so many great-sounding books out there. I know I will read them all eventually.

  38. Kingdom KeepersI’ve been reading so much (and buying, as books are my work now as well), but my mind is a blank. Apologies! I’ll add to it if I can later.The Warriors Series by Erin HunterIf you’re into deeper stuff, I’d recomment Fahrenheit 451. It’s a sci-fi type book that was written like in the 50s and a lot of the descriptions of a future society parallel our life today.James… you have to read this book… it will make your mind think and question the world we live in…No such factor as a 22 hour flight. You have to have now not factored on your time zones or you’ve gotten a connecting flight. On such lengthy distance flights, there will probably be films with the TV’s at the back of the seats, in addition they have video games and many others. Make certain you get a window seat as good so that you simply stare external while you’re bored. I cant rather advise any well books – probably some thing six hundred pages lengthy?? Make certain you drink tons of WATER (restrict cola and different delicate drink) and make certain you stand up to have a stroll up and down the plane once or more an hour. Good good fortune!!

  39. The rest, approx. 800-1000, are at my family’s place.I own quite a lot of books. I’ve read 90% from them and the other 10% is in progress. From the lot that I’ve read, I re-read some that I really like. I’ve always keep the books, ’cause I only buy the ones that I want.

  40. I am not able to part with books so I keep them all, and buy another copy if I want to give a present to my friends.

  41. Searchable online literature for the student, educator, or enthusiast. To find the work you’re looking for start by looking through the author index. 1200 full books and over 2000 short stories and poems by over 250 authors. Quotations database has over 8500 quotes.The Long GoodbyeA BIG book is Gone With the Wind. I read it years ago. It’s pretty good and may be over 1000 pages. I also really like Clan of the Cave Bear (though I didn’t do so well with those sequels.)The Clique

  42. If you want to get a good discussion going on in the club, Harry Potter is a great idea. Or if the members like fantasy sorts, I’d recommend Lord of the Rings, Eragon or Narnia. For an easy-to-read history book, you might like to choose one of the Horrible Histories series. They’re easy to understand, and there’s lots of jokes and stuff inside, which makes it more vivid and fun. You can also try simple classics like Daddy-Long-Legs, or Black Beauty. I don’t know about Russian books, so I can’t help you much with that. Just go into a library or bookshop, and you’d find loads of good books for your club there.

  43. The Count of Monte Cristohttp://www.bibliomania.com/The StandThe Bible, The Purpose driven Life book I am currently reading by Rick Warren. Help yourself book by Dave Pelzer is a cool book but somewhat depressing at times …… I might read Unsinkable soul book again though.

  44. The Vampire Diaries Series by L.J. SmithLord Of the Rings- By J.R.R Tolkien.Hill 488 by: Ray Hildreth

  45. Have you read Alice Sebold? She has a memoir called Lucky and a novel called The Lovely Bones. Both are excellent.

  46. Lemony Snicket a series of unfortunate events.Discworld series- By Terry Pratchett.http://www.online-literature.com/The Poisonwood Bible by Barbara Kingsolver. It’s just plain fiction, but it’s my favorite. If you like thriller/mysteries then I would go with An Isolated Incident by Susan R Sloan or Stone Angel by Carol O’Connell

  47. Simply entertainment: “The Shining” and “The Stand” by Stephen King; and because you like “Twilight”, here’s an upgrade: “Interview With A Vampire” by Anne Rice. Oh, and of course if you haven’t read “Harry Potter,” read it! (I have a bit of a soft spot for that series).The Rights of the Reader—Daniel Pennac i would like you to me by messanger friend if you to then invite me with on ID

  48. http://www.gutenberg.org/Sharp Teeth—Toby BarlowItUnfortunately due to limited space I have to limit it to about 100-150 books. So I keep the most important texts from college. I also keep all important contributions to literature as well as some favorites. I’v read them all. Being a teacher I also have a large number of children’s books but since they’re small I can keep many more of them. It’s hard because I LOVE to read! One day I hope to have a large enough house to keep all the books I want.
