I am desperate for some good books...i read about two books a week on my kindle and I do not want any that are not on the Kindle.

Any suggestions would be appreciated. I read Ann Patchett, Joanna Trollope, Elizabeth Gregory, etc.

Here's a good one, available for kindle: Apart From Love

I hope the book is better than the cover. That is a seriously weird picture.

The Pulitzer committee this year was desperate also. They could not find one American novel worthy of the honor. Publishers in this country are pathetic in so many ways. They so want to dumb down literature for the masses that the concept of a good novel, one that will make a reader feel alive, is beyond them. My BF Vampire Loves Gucci.

Sounds good.

Your post makes no sense.

good for them - I'm glad that they didn't award it to a book that they felt didn't meet their requirements. This isn't the first time that this happened in history - but it is the first time since 1973 (I think)

Barbara Kingsolver's novel THE GLASS CASTLE is excellent.

Some of the best books ever are the "Outlander" series by Diana Gabaldon. This is romantic and historical. Just can't describe how good they are! Go for these even if you don't go for anything else. There are seven books now and we are all champing at the bit to get the next one.

Also, the "Pendergast" books by Preston and Child. Different from anything else I have ever read. Some good authors' names to look up are Laurell K. Hamilton, Charles De Lint, Jonathan Kellerman. Don't know if you will like them all, but you only specified "Fiction" on your thread name. A lot of people are reading "Fifty Shades Of Grey" right now and seem to like that trilogy. I think it is Erotica. If I think of anything else, I will post again.

Four in the Morning is free on Kindle this week and includes myself and three other authors. Two of them, Marquitz and Erdelac, have series--good ones--multiple series in Marquitz' case.

Anne,
Since you like Joanna Trollope (I do too), I'll go ahead and recommend Elizabeth Buchan - but have to admit when I double-checked just now on kindle availability, to me those prices seem outrageous (I usually get her books in DTB from the library.) But I know everybody has different budgets, so keeping the recommendation. :)

Another British author, who's published by Sourcebooks (which often has great sales - it's worth it to keep an eye on their website) is Jill Mansell. Her stories are a bit lighter - yes, more like chick lit, but not too frothy...
I enjoyed Staying at Daisy's

Couple more....

Something fun to read for the summer is E.F. Benson's Mapp & Lucia series
- Miss Mapp (Make Way for Lucia)

Also, I've seen this author highly recommended on several UK blog sites (I have this book, just haven't gotten to it in the TBR yet): HOUSE OF SILENCE - Linda Gillard
