ABSOLUTELY! He just doesn't write fast enough. An aside-the very thought of Tom Cruise playing Jack Reacher just turns my stomach.

I have more than just 1 favorite. The first is a series, the Outlander series, by Diana Gabaldon. There are 7 books in the series with an 8th be published in 2013. They are hard to fit in to a category. The series is a love story, with time travel thrown in. The author's historical research is every bit as James Michner. I also love Ayann Hirsi Ali's book, titled, Infidel. Infidel is he life story. It's a gut wrenching story...not for the faint of heart. To learn more about her book, her life and her mission, there are a number of on-line reviews. To learn more about her life's work, go the the website of the AHA Foundation. Finally, I love all of Karen Marie Moning's books but I especially liked the Fever Series. How's that for diverse tastes in genre?

I agree -Tom Cruise is certainly NO Jack Reacher!! Mmd

This discussion is great, always looking for something new and surprising. I guess I am a complete book lovin fool!
Across the genres I go
Pillars of the earth - awesome and no doubt, Folliett is an incredible writer
I loved State of Wonder by Anne Patchett - great read
Read all of Larsson's Girl with Golden Tattoo series - excellent
Scary stuff loved..
Ghost Story - T.R. Freeman, Classic old fashioned ghost story
The Woman in Black - Susan Hill, another excellent scary tale
Try little known Rod Redux if you like the scary, first one I read was House of Dead Trees and just kept going with all of his books ( I had never heard of him)
One of my very favorite of favorites is Joe Abercrombie, even better than George RR Martin, although I do love him
Abercrombie writes such awesome characters, I am completely hooked on him. These books are in the Science fiction genre and maybe would appeal more to men than women, but what can I say I am a woman and I LOVE The Bloody Nine and Glotka, two of the most interesting people I have ever come to know. I can't reccomend Abercrombies books enough, just maybe not for everyone. Start with The First Law series - The Blade Itself, Before they were Hanged and Last Argument of Kings, then I read Best Served Cold, Heroes (just finished) can't wait for Red Country ( Nov.20th)If you like big strong men with real depth of character, you will love Abercrombie!

Also reading The Twelve - Justin Cronin, second in a three book series that began with The Passage, its going quickly and no dissapointment!

And yes of course Fifty Shades -improved with each book in the trilogy, as a woman you would have to be dead to not be affected..stirred, lets just say it improves the sex life. Can't wait for the movie on this one.

Man I am across the board on my love of books, I threw in Proof of Heaven last week, read it in two days...very interestingmay be helpful to those who have lost loved ones.

I always mix in some old classic's just read Tess of the Durberville's - wonderful, wonderful.

Who said Count of Monte Cristo? agree and Madame Bovary and of course anything Jane Austin and on and on with the classics

Need to get back to Folliett soon and will check out the recommedation of Cutting the Stone. Is that right?

I've left out a bunch, so many wonderful writers and so many wonderful stories.. for me reading is transportation, traveling to worlds alien to my own and being right there. I just hope to be traveling forever!

Life is so good by George Dawson and Richard Glaubman is a must read for anyone who values life.

Destiny of the Republic. Incredibly well told story of President Garfield and the arrogance, incompetence and stupidity of his doctors. An assassin inflicted Garfield's bullet wound but the doctors killed him. A story about James Garfield - riveting? Yes, every page if you enjoy history. Candace Millard is a great storyteller, proven in her previous book, River of Doubt, about Teddy Roosevelt's harrowing trip down the Amazon.

Anything by WALLY LAMB, especially "I Know This Much Is True".
Both books by Khaled Hosseini, "The Kite Runner", and "One Thousand Splendid Suns".
Can't wait for his new book to drop on May 21, 2013, called, "When The Mountains Echoed".

Where is the category BEST NON FICTION Book of the year or ever read?

You, Fascinating You
Hotel Noir

It's hard to choose just one favorite book, but I would advise readers to check out Pale Fire Press, a micro-publisher of "Books for Smart Readers."

I wondered if anyone had the nerve to say this is a wonderful book. I read all three - I am 80 years old and I thought these books were just great.

The Glass Castle stands out in my mind also Unbroken and The Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet kind of tells both sides of a sad time in our history

"Tattoos on the Heart" is a masterpiece of contemporary spirituality. It is a heartbreaking memoir by Gregory Boyle, a Jesuit priest whose life work is with gang members in Los Angeles County. The book is filled with joy and hope. It is tough and tender at the same time--a life changer!
