        • Oh gosh I can’t say what’s on my night stand since I have multiple books plus my ereader...... I am currently reading Port Mortuary by Patricia Cornwall.

        • Vikki, I empathize! I should have said those are the books on my night table that I am currently  reading! I have about 30 stacked on my night table and on the floor near it as well as my Kindle (and on this, I have about 20 books I haven't yet read; I'm a bibliophile.)

          How do you like Cornwall? I take it you‘re into mysteries, a genre I was never able to get into. Can you recommend a good mystery book that would keep me riveted?

        • I do like mystery and drama.... Sandra Brown is good, James Patterson of course (try postcard killers) Lisa Scottoline, Lisa Gardner.....

          I actually will read anything.... Next up is David Baldacci and Hells Corner.

        • Lisa Gardner, I think I just saw a book by her, but I don’t remember the title.  Does she have something new out?  Oh, wait, I own one of hers, The Third Victim.  Is that one good?

        • I don’t read in bed, so it’d be books on the end table for me. I still have, “Out of Africa” on
          it and forget the last time I picked it up.  

          Vikki, what’s your take on “Port Mortuary“?

        • Cathie Port Morturary is ok... it is better than the last few Scarpetta novels but a little confusing (for me anyways).  

          Virginia let me know what you think about Lisa Gardner.

          Melissa I will have to look into that book. I read a book a few years ago called for women only by shanti feldman and her hubz wrote 1 called for men only. Very interesting and really gave me some insight into my marriage.

        • Vikki, I stopped reading the Scarpetta saga novels because the later ones lost my interest.
          It felt to me she was about whining about her relationships with her neice and her old cop partner and the impact of the story line was gone. I switched to the Alex Cross series by James Patterson. If you say “Port Mortuary” is just Ok, I’ll wait to find it at a thrift store or a yard sale. Thanks for your review.  

          Meanwhile... I’m back to reading, “Out of Africa“. I can’t read more than one book at a time and I want to finish it before my next reading adventure.

        • I’m reading the book “Centennial” by James Michener.  Hubby has been watching the old mini-series of it on dvd, so I got the book to read.  Great history lessons, but I have to put on my reading glasses.  :(

        • Thx!

          That may not then be added to my light reading list. It sounds like it would go on the list for when I want to be challenged while reading.
