T.C. Boyle is one of my favorite writers as well. Pat Conroy's 'The Prince of Tides" is a really good. My favorite crime read has to be Henning Mankell, he is the Nortic King of the thriller writers!

If you like Mankell then you'll love Jo Nesbo. All of this Norwegian's books are excellent.

Linda Wiley I have read all of Joe Nesbo's book's and like him as much as
Henning Mankell. Karin Fossum, Camilla Lackberg, they are all very good Nordic writers. My favorite was Stieg Larsson who wrote The Girl with the
Dragon Tattoo series.

I am afraid that my favorite book still goes back to "Gone With the Wind".

Ken Follet's World without End. I couldn't put it down.

There are so many wonderful reads that it is hard to say this is my favorite....BUT, having said that: "The Space Between Us" by Thrity Umrigar, anything by Wallace Stegner ("Angle of Repose" and "The Crossing" for starter), "To Kill a Mockingbird", "Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close" by Jonathan Foer, "Elegance of the Hedgehog" by Muriel Burbery and ""Girls of a Tender Age" by Mary Tyrone Smith......for starters.

If you meant Cutting For Stone by Abraham Verghese, our book group read it and we all, all, really enjoyed it. Perhaps the one we liked even more was Unbroken by Laura Hillenbrand who wrote Sea Biscuit. These 2 were among the 25 books we've read so far.

Awake in Tears by Catherine Simone. It taught me to take ownership of my body and to remember nobody knows how I feel better than I do. It has helped me to mix Eastern and Western Medicine better than anything I've read before or since. Actually I've continued to read her next 2 books and pray there is a fourth. What a brave young woman. I thank her.

If you like spy novels Robert Ludlum's The Bourne book series are the best! Every chapter ends with a cliff-hanger, the books are all impossible to put down. I just ordered the 007 series by Ian Fleming, I hope they are just as good!

My two favorite non-fiction books are "Gods, Graves and Scholars," by C.W. ceram, and "Drumming at the Edge of Magic," by Mickey Hart, drummer for the Grateful Dead. I consider both of them at least mini-classics.

If it's anywhere near as good as his "Tortilla Curtain", then it must really be schreeching.

The Girl on the Cliff by Lucinda Riley was an excellent read

"Why Read?" b;y Mark Edmundson is the best book I have read in years. Have given five copies as gifts. Don't miss his one.

Chronicles of Harry Clifton by Archer is pretty good. Can't put it down.
