We Need a Book thread


Recommended Posts

I like Banana Yoshimoto, Murakami Haruhi, Abraham Yehoushua, Gabriel Garcia Marquez, John Fante, Arto Paasilinna, Jostein Garder, Tolkien.... and much more.

The best book ever (I mean... 4 books of a series): "The misplaced legion" series, Harry Turtledove. But copyright issues lead Turtledove to ask that fans refrain from writing fanfiction 'bout his stories.

What a pity!! His books are the only books I'd like to write fic 'bout.

Turtledove's fans out there?????

We Need a Book Thread for people to discuss what they are reading or what books they like to collect as well. Personally me I like Hannah Howell, Lynsay Sands, Barbara Taylor Bradford, Debbie Macomber and James A. Michener and apparently James Bond Novels as well.

Julie, I'd say you just started yourself a book thread. :)

Are you familiar with the Lord of the Rings series daisy? (It's been made into movies recently). J R R Tolkien wrote those. I haven't read the books but I remember EVERYBODY was reading them when I was in Jr. High and Highschool.

Which was, well, a few years ago. LOL

I've read a couple of Harry Turtledove's books - my sister likes him, but I've never really managed to get into him.

I liked the first book in the Lord of the Rings trilogy, but only for Golem, after that I kind of lost intrest. :oops:

Now I mostly read Karin Slaughter, Jim Butcher, Lilith Saintcrow, John Connolly, Kim Harrison, and Kelley Armstrong. And, on the rare occasion that they put out new books, PN Elrod and Rita Mae Brown (but only the ones "cowritten" by her cat Sneaky Pie :D)

I have heard of "Lord of the Rings" but never really did get into the movies or tried to read any of the books. I haven't heard of the other authors you all have listed.

I am not really into that sort of thing, I like a good mystery - either lawyer or police or both. My favorite authors are: Lee Child, Micheal Connolly, John Lescroart, and Steve Martini. Once I get any of their books started, they are hard for me to set them back down.

It's funny that you should mention "Lord of the Rings". I've been putting ideas down in a notebook the last few months and plan to start writing a book that is similiar to that type of story.

I'm realistic about the chance in a million that it will ever get published. I wrote a romantic fiction called "Wolfe Mountain" and I learned from that how hard it is to get someone to even look at it.

Still, I don't care. "Wolfe Mountain" took 3 years to write and from that experience I know that this new project will take about 10 years but I'm just doing it for fun so if it doesn't sell, the least I can do is pass it down to my heirs. Who knows, maybe a grandchild or great-grandchild will improve on it and make it succeed.

It's going to be time consuming but it won't cut into my Dukes stuff. It might cut into me getting the lawn mowed though...LOL

Well right now I am reading Highland Savage by Hannah Howell and get this the bad guys name in the books is Ranald and his lover is Agnes and the two they are after are Katarine and Sir Lucas Murray but Ranald keeps trapping him so far. And Sir Lucas has a Twin brother name Sir Artan Murray it's set in 1481 Scotland and Lucas must be handsome for the cover I keep looking at the cover now as well. And the other book I am reading mostly at work in "The Rogue Hunter by Lynsay Sands" and it's Paranormal romance I know to romances that are so different but yet the Hannah Howell novels the pages just fly by for some reason as well. And by the way "Highland Savage" is the sixth Hannah Howell novel I've read in less than seven months as well. Sorry the General Lee isn't in this book and no Bo isn't as well.lol.

I'd seen the first movie like three times or someting and then they were talking about this couple that really likes it was going to have their wedding and then go to the opening of book seven before their honeymoon. not sure why, but I started reading the first book the next day.

Well on Highland Savage by Hannah Howell I have less than 100 pages to go on this story and it's getting really good then I'm going on to Highland Barbarian by Hannah Howell I hope that is one if just as good. You get attracted by the covers and get taken in by the writings with her books apparently now.
