Has anyone read any good books lately?? I mean real page turners... I've been trying to find a good book for a while now but every time i start one i lose interest really quickly and put it down.. I dont know when the last time i actually finished a book was.. Anyway my sister is a big Norah Roberts fan, so she keeps telling me to read one of her books but I'm not sure which one to read.. Any suggestions?

I’m a pretty big Nora Roberts fan myself so II think any books by her would be a good start but my favorite ones were Vision In White, which is about a wedding photographer and has some drama of her own, and Northern Lights which was an unexpected love story in Alaska. But it really depends on your taste in books.

Deception Point, Angels and Deamons, and The Davinci Code

Ohhh thanks for the great suggestions! That movie sounds like it a good idea to watch so i can get a taste of how Nora Roberts writes. Then I can decide if her books would be right for me. I looked it up and its on lifetime tomorrow night. I cant wait!

Great tip about the movie... Did anyone else check it out?? What did you think??? I liked the it. I dont think it was like the book, but Nora's books are rich with information and excitement, and you could not fit everything into the two hours. But overall I enjoyed watching the movie.

For those of you who can handle a fair amount of vulgarities and graphic descriptions of violence I highly recommend "Unit Pride" by John McAleer and Billy Dickson. This book is based on a true story about the Korean War. The book is not only touching but extremely witty and hilarious. I could not put this book down upon opening it. I must have read half way through non stop. After reading this book three times it still grips me. I hope someone else can derive as much pleasure from reading it as I have. :)

Ever heard of Wilbur Smith?If you like action-packed novels about Africa
this author may be right for you. Hard to get bored with his one. :idea:
