The entire Charlie Bone series by Jenny Nimmo.  It's a Harry Potter wanna-be, but not bad.  I've been checking out books from the kids section lately at the library - fast, fun, total escapist reading material!

i just finished Garlic and Sapphires by Ruth Reichl, the editor of gourmet magizine and the former new york times food critic for six years- besides being a foodie book- it was a very good story-plus some excellent recipies.

I am glad she wrote two others.

Currently re-reading the 3 autobiography books of Clive James. They've been put together as one volume now, but I can't remember what it's called.

Can't Wait to Get to Heaven by Fannie Flag (Comedian who also wrote Fried Green Tomatoes) I read a couple of books a week - so always have a stack ready. Sometimes educational, but right now I need some easy reading.

Enslaved by Ducks
by Bob Tarte

I'm going to stick with just a dog but a part of me would like a menagerie of fowl and hoof. The author keeps ducks + other birds as pets but I kinda like the idea of eating what I raise. It has an appeal to this city boy who's always gotten his food from cellophane packages.

Dean Koontz seems to be popular. I really do not like his style of writing. At all.

I read one Dean Koontz, scared me so much I was afraid to read another.

Don't remember the title & much of the story, but never forgot this part:

 A man picked up a teenaged hitchhiker took her to his home & strung her up in a pitch dark basement with just the tips of her toes touching the floor.

After several days he opened some air vents & let in thousands of ants & over the next week or so they slowly ate her alive.

I kept thinking he was giving some depraved psyco an idea on how to torture someone.

Anyone know the title of that book & are all his books like that?

I'm glad I read Glitter's first.... I did not read McJane's.   :o

I'm reading "Three weeks with my brother" by Nicholas Sparks.  Good so far.

I don't, but I've read stories even scarier by Clive Barker!

Oh and don't worry about the psychos. They will come up with their own creative and just-as-cruel practices. Horrible thought, that, but having read so much true crime material, I now know that fiction just does not compare.

I am currently on book 3 (Silverthorn) of the Riftwar series by Raymond E. Feist.  There are only 4 books to this series, but about 20 books that all occur in this same world.  I really like these so far so I think I will have to check the rest out.  For more info on Raymond E. Feist go to www.raymondfeistbooks.com/index.htm

The Riftwar-Series:
Magician (1982) - This one was split into 2 books Magician: Aprentice, and Magician: Master
Silverthorn (1985)
A Darkness at Sethanon (1986)

Oh, it's really bad, glitter, the description of torture & suffering that girl went through. There was more of it, but that part never left me.

I'm going to Google it & see if I can find the title.

I've got a feeling I started reading Magician at some stage, many years ago. I don't think I finished it, and I also can't remember any of it.

I can't be sure it was Magician but it was Feist, and it was a huge fat book.

In it's original release it would had to of been around 700 or so pages since each book separately is over 300 pages.
