I agree, Herman Wouk is a great author. I haven't read War and Remembrance but I did read Winds of War back in '87. I don't remember the plot but I must have liked the book and the author because I've read 10 of his books, 4 in one year. He also wro...

Is anyone else doing a reading challenge this year? I've decided to try one that is 52 books in 52 weeks--simple enough for me-- but has 52 different categories, which is what will be the challenge! I feel I am stuck in a cozy mystery rut and want to...

I’m doing the Ultimate Popsugar Challenge as well as a Goodreads challenge. Last year I managed 55 or 56 books across many genres. This year, I’m shooting for 65 books. But, full disclosure, I work in an indie bookstore, so the pressure is great. P...

... If you like mysteries, ANY book by Ruth Rendell is aways great. Mary Roach writes these amazing, fascinating non-fiction books about different subjects that you think you'd never want to read about but then you can't put it down.

No reading challenge here. I just want to read one book at a time. I usually have 4 or 5 books going at the same time. No goals on number of books either. Just however many I can squeeze between now and December 31st, 2019. I try not to have a book unf...

I'm working on the Popsugar Reading Challenge for 2019. I did it last year and really enjoyed it. I'm still finishing it up. ;) I have about 4 books left for the last challenge before I start this one so I want to get it done. I read more than 50 books...

I'd like to get my hands on a copy of that graveyard book of yours. When are you going to publish it?

One of the categories in my challenge is "a self-published book". I know there are several LB authors...anybody self published?

I don't know anything about self-publishing, but I have a short story in an anthology published with Untreed Reads and they've been wonderful to work with, very professional and available. It's worth checking out their submission policy.

Oooohhh, I read Meddling Kids from one of Amanda's lists and it was good! Then I read his previous book The Supernatural Enhancements which I liked even more. Maybe there will be a sequel to that one. Couldn't get in to This Body's Not Big Enough For...
