    I'm so wrong, and you are so right, it is James Rollins!

    When I go to edit I get the correction box to change the text, but I can't find the save changes button.

    Thanks, Terry

    George R.R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire Series is fantastic! HBO just aired the first season of Game of Thrones which is based on these books, with the same names as the first book in the 7 book series. I have read A Clash of Kings(the 2nd book) and am about 2/3 through the third book, A Storm of Swords.

    Christopher Moore is also a good one with a great sense of humor. And of course, Stephen King is a staple.

    And I was pleasantly surprised by Stephanie Moore's The Host.

    I've read those and just finished a newer one by her, Ape House.

    Other recent reads, The Art of Racing in the Rain, Garth Stein.

    A Girl and Five Brave Horses (true account of Wild Hearts Can't be Broken/movie) by Sonora Carver.

    Just re-read an old Dick Francis book, my all time favorite author. I could read and re-read his every day I think.

    A couple of James Patterson books, and a few others I can't remember at the moment lol. I also have a couple I pick up between "quick reads", have been working on Cleopatra biography for awhile now and just started Bill Bryson At Home. Have the George Bush book, Decision Points, to read too when I get to it.

    Since so many of you are readers I just thought I'd mention Paperback Swap. I think I first heard about it here several years ago. I've been a member ever since and it's a wonderful way to get trade books you've read and get ones you want to read. http://www.paperbackswap.com/index.php

    At work I started Take a Book, Leave a Book and it has worked out well. You are free to take whatever looks good and we just ask that you drop off any books you are done with. All on the honor system and we have had some great books rotate through.
