2010/126: Reading Material

I think I might actually find some time to read in about a month or so, and I’m hoping my faithful blog readers have some book suggestions for me. I like fiction, thrillers, mysteries….  no sappy love stories (I prefer those as movies 😉 ) and I’m NOT into sparkly vampires, any kind of elves, aliens, robots, or wizards, etc.

  1. I can´t recomend any specific title, but I got this idea that this must be the right time for buying the new Ipad, and use it as an ebook reader, or buying Amazon.com’s Kindle…

  2. Unfortunately the iPad and Kindle are both a bit pricey (esp. the iPad! All those accessories add up!), and if I had that kind of money, I would rather spend it on camera equipment 😉

  3. Aaaaaaah, planning for your ‘downtime’ now are we? Good idea! I like your perspective and simple background on this shot. The urge would have been to go dark in the background but I like that you kept things light.

    Can’t reccommend a book as I don’t read all that much (wish I did). In the process of reading Chelsea Handler’s “Chelsea, Chelsea Bang, Bang” and so far it is pretty funny! 🙂

    • Me, too!! I used to read a lot, but somehow the computer (or I should say the Internet) has changed all that. I can’t remember the last time I read a real book… or FINISHED one.
      Funny is good, I’ll have to check that one out. Thanks!

    If I was thinking a little bit clearer, I’d have some suggestions 😉 . I just donated a ton of books…..I’ll look around to see what I have left.

    I LOVE Chelsea Handler, been meaning to get that book, she’s hysterical!

    • Aww, poor Doreen, still all drugged up? 😉
      I still have a few weeks before I need a supply of books, you’ll probably think clear again LONG before that. Looking forward to your suggestions!

  5. I enjoy the thrillers of Dan Brown. I have not had the time to read his latest. It’s on the docket for this summer.

    If you want an interesting photography book which is more about ideas than equipment or technical jargon, the book I read this month is excellent. Within the Frame by David duChemin.

  6. Good! 🙂

  7. For thrillers, have you ever read the Agent Pendergast books by Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child? Some of the titles are Cemetary Dance and The Wheel of Darkness. There’s 9 books in the series – very creepy mysteries with a clever, interesting “hero.” I also really loved the Odd Thomas books by Dean Koontz – four books in that series. These are mysteries with a hint of supernatural (no sparkly vampires!) and a great sense of humor. Dean Koontz has some other very thoughtful books along the same line. I’ve read quite a few and can suggest some others if you’d be interested.

    • Nope, haven’t read any of those. I did read a few Dean Koontz years and years ago, but can’t remember the titles.

  9. I heard the book that is kind like the story of the Bourne Identity is good. I forgot what it was called though. If you ever watched the movies and liked it then this could be the book for you, it’s the movie with Matt Damon in it. hmmm…I can’t think of anything else right now but if I do I’ll let you know 🙂

    • Thanks Consuelo. I thought the movie was based on the book by the same name?

  10. What about not sparkly vampires? No? Well have you tried Janet Evanovich – very light and funny (mystery, with a little romance – nothing mushy).

  11. Thanks! Looks like I’ll be hitting the book store with quite a list! 🙂
    Keep ’em coming if anyone can think of anything else.
    Anyone read medical thrillers?

    Well, I am glad you got some good suggestions. I love to read, but hardly find the time. I will probably check back here for some of these loved books when I do get the time.

  13. *cough*GABALDON*cough*cough* 😉
    (We will call it “historical fiction” since you are averse to “romance.”) *tee*hee*
