Flojo:

Here!  I love scary books and some fantasy (like John Carter of Mars) Steven Kings books, Dean Koontz and the new series by Stieg Larsson that starts with the girl with the dragon tattoo.  Sometimes I think if it is printed on paper I will read it!  The exception is the Harlequin Romances.  My personal opinion of those is "YUCK"  I don't mean to hurt any feelings, it is just that those books do not speak to me.

Flo, nice there are other out there, I'm just not into the mushy stuff, its all the same to me ,LOL  I love d the Larsson books have you seen the movies? not the new one the older ones , they are really good ,You have to change the language but now days its hard to tell they are not English , Anyway I just love a good scary book ..Barbara

Haven't seen the movies, although have seen some of the trailers.  Look like they will be good.  I always wait until you can rent the dvd.......Can not afford movie houses any more!

I love fantasy, sci-fi,  and mysteries as well as classics like Jane Eyre.  I just started reading The Cat Who Moved a Mountain by Lilian Jackson Braun.  I read the first 2 chapters last night. Yesterday I finished my second 'High Healed' mystery by Gemma Halliday.  Last week I re-read The Gods of Mar (the second in the John Carter of Mars series by Edgar Rice Burroughs. 

My daughter & I read a lot of the same things so we share a lot of books like Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum series  and the Sookie Stackhouse series by Charlaine Harris.

I read a little every night before I go to sleep.  A couple of months ago I finally broke down and bought a Kindle Touch.  I love it.  I always have a whole library with me.  A lot of older books like the ones by Burroughs are free!!  WooHoo!

The free books are really good, actually.  I like sci-fi/fantasy also.  Try these:

- Time Traders by Andre Norton. 

- Also adventure by H. Rider Haggard - The People of the Mist. 

-  I read The Invisible Man by HG Wells, pretty interesting.   A little different from the movie.

- Also Dracula by Bram Stoker.

- The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.

These are all free for Kindle, and I imagine for Nook also.  Lots of free stuff out there if you don't limit yourself to the past 30 years or so.  Another good one is The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas, but this one is not the easiest reading in the entire world style-wise, more "old-style" than the others.

I LOVE the Cat Who..... books. She hasn't written one in quite awhile. I wonder if she is still alive or just stopped writing.

Her books are on my TBR list but haven't gotten to them yet. Might have to bump them up the list.

Those harlequin romances are written to make you want to go out and find a man and drag him into your bed for the afternoon.   Then you are ready to throw him out and try some of the techniques you picked up while reading the horror books and murder booksa.....LOL

I had to laugh when my daughter told me that her mother-in-law refers to those books as "Bodice Busters" because of the covers.
