I had just read Steel's book and then the next one was THE KLONE AND I, could not believe the same person had written the previous book and then this poorly written and thought out novel. Could there be more than one person churning out all those books under one name?

Today at the library I picked up "The Satelite Sisters"(Dolin Sisters). It sounds fun and interesting! Has anyone read it?

I just finished Courting Trouble by Lisa Scotoline. It was a pretty good read. A few twists and turns, kind of a murder mystery.

I need to go to the libray - I have nothing left to read!

Right now I am reading the "Tapestry" anthology (by Lynn Kurland, Madeline Hunter, etc.) it's pretty good.

I have Salem Falls by Jodi Picoult in my To be Read pile, glad to know it's good!

And I'd like to recommend an author to anyone who likes romance books. My all time favorite author is JUDITH McNAUGHT. If you've never read her books, I totally recommend them...they are SO good. Some of my faves are Paradise, Perfect, Something Wonderful, Once and Always....actually ALL her books are awesome!

I also love Julie Garwood and can't wait until I can pick up my own copy of Killjoy.

Medical thriller

Finished FATAL by Michael Palmer this morning at 12:30 a.m.(thank goodness I'm retired now, used to be hard getting by sometimes on 4-5 hours sleep when I worked).
He has done much research for this book apparently and it was a surprise to see the statistics on how many children are affected by their "shots" and the dire results (which is woven into the story line). Also the long term effects of these "shots" are not taken into account in the rush to get them to market.
Read and be prepared to sympathize with parents that want no shots for their children..I used to think they were I am not so sure.

I haven't read that book....but we (my husband and I) have elected not to have our children immunized...we talked it over with our doctor who told us that she didn't have her children immunized either! She suggested that there were two vaccinations she would get if she had to do it all over again..and that was polio and one other one (RSV, maybe?).

I'm sure that not everyone would agree with that choice, but I have noticed that my children are rarely ever sick (except for the occasional common colds). I think too many shots really wreaks havoc with little children's immune system!

I'm reading "One Thousand White Women" (The Journals of May Dodd) by Jim Fergus. A really good read - real pageturner. This is a library book; however I note inside cover mentions that 5% of author's royalties earned on sale of "One Thousand White Women" donated to St Labre Indian School, Ashland, Montana. One critic suggests that fans of western fiction and of american fronteir history might want to add this novel to their reading list.

Post What I'm reading now

I'm in the middle of Steve Lopez's book, IN THE CLEAR. It's a good story, and well-written, but I think his best work is his first novel, THIRD AND INDIANA. It's about a group of people & how they are affected by the drug trade in a Philadelphia neighborhood. Excellent!

I just finished reading a book of Mary Higgins Clark....PRETEND YOU DON'T SEE HER. I am starting to get into mysteries, and knew she was a good author. I enjoyed it very much, and had trouble laying it down at times.

Have a question for everyone. After you read paperbacks, what do you do with them? I won't just throw them away, as I LOVE books. So many I have kept thinking I will reread them, and yet never do. I have boxes of books, and my DH just looks at me when I buy another one, and smiles. I am getting buried in all my books. Any suggestions?? Pam
