I loved firefly and serenity, like many others here, and was wondering if anyone can recommend books that read like firefly. That is, great sci fi that is character-driven with lots of action and even humor.
Thanks so much!!!

I have been looking too. In the meantime, Steven Brust wrote a Firefly novel and released it for free online:

I downloaded the linked novel, but I, too, would appreciate advice on what commercial novels are around which resemble the Firefly universe, or at least the same type of independent, credible adventures Firefly involved (i.e. not saving the whole of creation every week).

There's a novel called Retribution Falls by Chris Wooding that I ordered from here after several people mentioned it being in the spirit of Firefly. I haven't read it yet though.

The Vorkosigan Saga by Lois McMaster Bujold is a little like Firefly. Whenever I was reading it, it reminded me repeatedly of Firefly, especially some of the characters. There is a good mix of comedy, action, wit, and a dash of romance. I fell in love with the worlds and well-developed characters. You should definitely check it out, probably starting with Cordelia's Honor (Vorkosigan Saga Omnibus: Shards of Honor / Barrayar), if you like chronological order, but that's more of a prequel. Anyways, I digress, just give it a chance.

The Ketty Jay novels , Retribution Falls being the first, are exactly what you are looking for. Currently there are three of them out and a fourth in the works.
JG Koch also just released a novel called Alexander Outland Space Pirate that would also fit the bill.

Check out Liberty. This is an awesome young adult Sci Fi with a Firefly-esque theme.
