Alan Furst, Mission to Paris. Brilliant characters you will love or hate. Great adventure tale of espionage in pre-world war two Paris.

THESE GUYS: Cold War Stories Told by Cold War Warriors by Trish Schiesser.
Stories of the cold war told by United States Air Force Security Service men about their work in the intelligence community. One of the first books of its kind.
"A GREAT READ."

Fifty Shades of Grey is definitely a page turner, yes, it is erotic, but it is also a great story and when you are reading it the sex just goes along with the story and you're more interested and involved with the maine characters Christian and Anastasia. Great read, would suggest it to Mature Readers. Written by E L James.

Why I Became an Atheist: A Former Preacher Rejects Christianity by John W Loftus is a wonderful book. Compares right up there with Dawson, Hitchens (R.I.P), and Stenger!

<~~~~ wife: Love " Fifty Shades of Grey." Of course it is not for everyone (Very erotic). This is a page turner, has a great story line, that leaves you wanting more. It is not intended for a young reader, it is wrote for a more mature audience. This was the first book in a long time that I did not want to put down, and will re-read it now that I have completed the trilogy. A must have book series.

Red Plenty This is just brilliant. Spufford reinvents Truman Capote's non-fiction novel, explaining Soviet economics! in a totally engrossing way.

Primal Unleashed by Jack Silkstone

This is a brilliant fast-paced action book that guys from 13 to 93 will love. The characters are great, the combat is real, and the gadgets and villains rival any James Bond thriller. Importantly, the novel also has a deeper layer raising important and uncomfortable moral questions about the efficacy of governments in addressing politically or diplomatically inconvenient problems, about the validity of extra-judicial killings, and the role of the private citizen in the delivery of justice. A great read!

The Fifty Shades trilogy. Definitely a page turner! Was not what I expected at first; but, later, I couldn't tear myself away from any of them. The third one left me wanting to read more about Christian's and Anastacia's future. I'd like to see a fourth book.

The Breathing Series by Rebecca Donavon, theses two books were page turners and keep me interested the entire time. The third book of the series comes out in November or December and I can't wait to read it.

Three Cups of Tea

What surprises me is my favourite so far has little in way of eroticism but a really strong storyline -- Anna Elliott's Demon Hunter and Baby. The first in I hope a long series.

The Red Umbrella by Christina Diaz Gonzalez focuses on a relatively unknown slice of 1960's history. The book is based on the experiences of her parents, and of over 14,000 other children who were sent by their parents to the United States to escape Castro's regime. Some parents and children were eventually reunited in the states, however, some parents never saw their children again. The book brought back my memories of meeting Cuban girls who stayed briefly at St. Anthony Villa in Toledo, Ohio, on their way to their temporary (hopefully) foster homes. What a decision for parents to make; what an experience for the children! This was the largest exodus of unaccompanied children ever in the history of the Western Hemisphere yet, before this book, there wasn't much written about it. A wonderful first novel.

Hunger Games by far best read of the year, also always love James Patterson, John Sanford, Baldacci, and Tom Clancy.

I so agree with L. Ross. My daughters thought I was just a little bit daft when I told them I read all 3 novels. The story itself held me. It indeed was a lovestory between two people who each had their own idiosyncracies to deal with in life. These books which I read on my Kindle were something akin to the Harry Potter craze for me.
