august books

what could be better......
a good book, beautiful weather, some quiet time in the hammock
  • Run by Ann Patchett......the more I read by Patchett the more I like her writing. She is such a good story teller. I feel like I am right in the middle. I feel like I have known the characters forever rather than just meeting them a few hours ago.
  • Breaking Dawn by Stephanie over. I read this one a while back but decided to re-read it because at the time that I read it, I flew through it so fast I missed a lot. Hazards of a good book!
  • Potshot and Back Story by Robert B. Parker.....I listened to both of these. Our library has audiobooks you can download for FREE and I can listen to them on my iPhone while walking on the treadmill or in my car. Besides the slow download time, this ROCKS! I really like the Spenser series and enjoy even more listening to them! They are read by Joe Mantegna and he's perfect.
  • The Whole Truth by David Baldacci......Summary of the book included - "An utterly spellbinding story that feels all-too-real, THE WHOLE TRUTH delivers all the twists and turns, emotional drama, unforgettable characters, and can't-put-it-down pacing that Baldacci fans expect-and still goes beyond anything he's written before." Hmmm, not so much.

I kept meaning to ask you if you tried out the audio books yet. Guess you answered the question without me even asking. i download it to a folder on my computer and then transfer it to my MP3. Goes pretty quick that way.
Greatest thing since sliced bread.
Be sure to try Clive Cussler books. Scott Brick reads his and he is fantastic. :-)

reading? a book? what is this form of entertainment? vague, vague memories...

I'm jealous of your hammock-reading capabilities!

I loved "Run"! I love Ann Patchett's books, and really loved Run when I read it earlier this year.
