Hello Shirley, I read Shelfari has you as a member with Vince Flynn’s “The Last Man” and would like to recommend another Thriller, "The Diaries of Pontius Pilate.” It draws upon the author’s Special Forces background and has great reviews. “Diaries” is not a vanity or self-pub book, but is published by Trestle Press, a small independent press outside of Philadelphia under its imprint, My Helping Hands Press, that gave an unorthodox novel - “Diaries” is a hybrid, part military, part religious intrigue - a chance. Full disclosure - I wrote it and hope you’ll give it a chance - on Kindle, Paperback, Nook or Kobo.Best wishes, Joe Lewis www.josephmaxlewis.com
Hello Shirley, I hope that the season finds you warm and reading. It’s hard to believe that it’s 2013, seems like only a couple of years ago it was the year 2000. Let’s hope that 2013 is not so violent. Dracula: Hearts of Stone (Dracula is a good guy) We start with a shiny new pot of boiling water and add too many evil vampires, and not enough of the good biters. Toss in one suicidal Dracula; add a cup of mayhem and a dash of romance. Stir in some red sheriffs. Oh yes, and a pinch of mirth. Stir lovingly and you have a novel by A. J. Gallant. If it sounds like the recipe for you then you must read Dracula: Hearts of Stone. Please check out my author page for excerpts: http://www.independentauthornetwork.com/a-j-gallant.html Unrealistic or not my writing gives me hope. But with something like 50 000 books published a month it is a little discouraging. I can just picture my book underneath that pile being crushed. I didn’t think there were that many writers.
Hi Shirley,Thats a beautiful puppy by the way (especially the dark patches over the eyes). What breed is it?I see how much you enjoyed 'Before I go to Sleep' by S.J Watson. It's a great debut novel.I particualrly noted how it "kept you guessing until the end and you didn't figure it out."I’m searching for someone like you who appreciates the more original and interesting fiction that might be interested in trying out my novel trilogy "The DEAD LOOP". It is easy to read, emotive and a unique psychological thriller mystery about a man that dies every single day but has no idea why. That really will keep you guessing Shirley!I’ve persuaded a random Shelfari reader to try it and they kindly wrote on Amazon US: ‘one of the most unique and original story plots that I have read in quite a long time. The description of the settings of the various lives/deaths of the main character are so well described and well written that I can vividly see them in my mind as I read along.’Part 1 is free on Kindle every 18 days or so, or 99c normally. Or it’s free all the time if you have Kindle Prime!If it intrigues you at all and want to check it out, I would very much appreciate any feedback. Best wishes,http://www.amazon.com/The-DEAD-LOOP-ebook/dp/B008S2WGFY/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1346872352&sr=8-1&keywords=dead+loop

Now middle age creeping up finds Tommy Mack edgy, jaded, and weary of his grisly trade. As he contemplates retirement, he is framed for the murder of Mr. Ogg’s niece. Desperate, Tommy Mack enlists the aid of his friends, the mercurial D. Noble and burly Esquire to do battle with Mr. Ogg and his mercenary “dark suits.” A new, better life filled with his passions for poetry and jazz drives Tommy Mack to the slambang climax where a few dark secrets about his past are unearthed.

let me know if you like the book best friends forever. it sounds like a book I would like. I'm getting ready to start eat prey love.
Diane Mott Davidson's books are fun. I love the recipes that come with them!
You must read "Sarah's Key". I think it was Kim's book I read; so maybe you can get it from her.
Shirl.... I really enjoyed "the help" also!!! Are you not reading anything right now!?!?
I Loved Sarah's Key!!
Shirley, I also picked up "Knit the Season", same author that wrote "Friday Night Knitting Club" we read. Hope it's as good.
Oh, good. I haven't been reading lately, so I'm looking forward to getting some good books in soon.
Thanks for telling me.
Okay that's fine. I was just wondering about it. I won't read it then.
Well, after I sent you a note on Little Bee, I realized you had already read it too.
Shirley, I liked it! It was very thought provoking as when we read "Suns" and "Kite Runner". I would have liked a different ending though. You should read. I'll get it to you if you want to read.
Shirley, finished The Tea Rose. It's a good book: I got Kim for Christmas; think you'd like it. I'm starting The Winter Rose by the same author, Jennifer Donnelly. Never read her before, but like her writing style, makes you anxious to keep reading.
I really liked firefly lane!! Recommend you read; about best friends, and the era it was written in, I remember so many things...growing up and being a parent.
I saw you read a book, The Secret Between Us, by Barbara Delinsky. Did you like it and recommend? I just finished Coast Road, by her, and it was an easy read, and a good book. First time to read her.
I just finished "World Without End" It was really good,, and long (1014 pages). I think you would like it... it is written in the 1300's, people, struggles, cathedral's building, and in general, their way of life back then.
