Mostly Stephen King, Dean Koontz genre. You should check out Carl Hiassen. Some good reads there.

Garfield books! I can't get enough!

It is so funny when Garfield hates Mondays and eats all the lasagna!

History, any historical biography or historical novel. Love 'em. Read a couple of books recently about the US attacks against the German supply lines during WW2 this summer.

Cookbooks, always. Got one from one of the kids last year based on Julia Child's and Jacques Pepin's PBS series. I love those two!

Just read Orange is the New Black. Really good.

Also just read "The Illusion of Separateness" by Simon van Booy. Really, really good, heartwarming.

Every novel by Robert B. Parker, Dennis Lehane, Vince Flynn and Brad Thor. Stephen King from 1975-1990, plus a few of his works since then.
The novels of Fletcher Knebel.
Science fiction by Philip K. Dick, Orson Scott Card, Arthur C. Clark, Ken Grimwood, E.C. Tubb, John Rankine and Harry Turtledove.
The soon to be five volume set "The Years of Lyndon Johnson" by Robert A. Caro.
"Common Ground" by J Anthony Lukas (I bet Reader has read it, too.)

That's just scratching the surface of what I've got in the house.

I know! I am addicted to books, also. I like hardbacks better, not too fond of reading on iPad.
There's just something about holding a good book.
The Johson series ought to be a doozie, considering the time he served as Prez.
I will make a note.
I keep thinning out the books but for some reason more appear! Lol

Me too! I have a Kindle, it's handy for when I want to read on the go--waiting for car repairs, doctor appts, etc. But there is nothing in the world to me like the feel of an old fashioned library and the feel of a good book in my hands.

I loved all of Frank McCourt's books, read everyone at least twice. Teacher Man is absolutely hilarious when he describes how he dealt with teaching NY inner city kids English.

The fifth and final volume is due out in 2015. You can read the first four now...they came out in 1982, 1990, 2002 and 2012. They are a daunting read; by the time the fifth volume comes out, the total page count will be around 5000...in hardcover.

I use my Kindle for free books and stuff $5 and under. Otherwise, I'll get the printed book.

That's basically what I do. I find it hard to read the Kindle because I have to take off my bifocals to do so. Age is a biatch. Plus I noticed I've been limiting my exposure to digital stuff more lately. I'm finding the laptop, cell phone, Kindle to be more of a distraction that a help. But may be just me. I work on a computer all day long and the eye strain is bothersome.

Sometimes I buy print just because I love to highlight or make notes in the margins LOL.
