    Default Recommend a Good Book?

    Today I posted a book recommendation on the blog here. Since the nook is really about reading, I would like to include some of that here and there too!! I think I am going to make that a weekly feature on the blog, so be sure to check it out every so often!

    If you have any books you can recommend, please feel free to add them in this post as you think of them, I would love to be able to post some recommendations from board members on the blog as well. Especially since I only read a few genres and I am sure you guys can recommend some books in other genres! Feel free to add as many as you would like!! Don’t worry about linking, I will go back and do that for you later so everyone can see exactly what you are suggesting.

    Though I would prefer digital books, I know some of our favorite reads are still only in DT form, so feel free to suggest either.

    Cheers!

    Delete this post if it's not appropriate. As no guidelines about posting Kindle only books are set that I know of, I'm gonna post this and hope it's allowed, and hope that Brad (I don't know him except for a few posts to him on Amazon's K boards) gets his book in Nook format asap .

    Currently I'm reading Brad Marlowe's Sleepwalker: The Last Sandman <--Click the link to see a description and some reviews. I'm only 15% into the book, but I'm reeeeally liking it.

    Recently I read Rick Yancey's The Monstrumologist This link is to the hardcover edition(changed link to b&N digital for ya ), and as terrific as I thought the book was, when they get over $5 or $6 (I'm cheap tho -$9.99 is reasonable, imho, for new bestsellers) I'd look in the library. This was, at one time, a free K download, and I'm SOOO glad I grabbed it. It was one of the most scary, gory, suspenseful books I've ever read. I was about 1/2way through this book when I found out it's considered a book for teens. What?? No way! Apparently, yes way. If I had kids, I wouldn't want them reading this book! But for me, a scare and gore addicted adult, it was a fantastic read.

    I'm not gonna put guidelines on that here yet since all we all have is a Kindle (or Sony), if we have an eReader at all! I think once the nook comes out and gets really popular, people will be more encouraged to move their self-published titles there as well. Thanks for your great recommendations!!

    As I mentioned in another thread I've been re-reading Anne McCaffrey's Dragonriders of Pern novels. Great fun!

    I've also been getting reacquainted with Dean Koontz, who I like better than Steven King.

    I've also been looking for reasonably priced digital editions of Edward Gibbon's Rise and Fall of the Roman Empire. So far the best price I've found has been from fictionwise.com at about $3 a volume. Ereaders are perfect for reading these kinds of books, I think.

    Also been reading Fritz Leiber's Fafhrd and The Gray Mouser series. I've kind of been re-living my childhood reading lately. Heh.

    I had not noticed that price difference. Good to know that B&N prices are competitive with themselves!

    Dean Koontz! Yay! Just finished Odd Thomas, and Forever Odd. Now I shall have to walk to paperback library to find the rest. -sigh- Anyway, good book: John Grisham's The Street Lawyer. I'd suggest Hitchhikers Guide, seeing how the 6th of 3 just came out, but maybe not.

    Cheers,
    Ben
