    David Baldacci

    We are crazy about Baldacci. We like all of his characters.

    Our favorites so far are the Sean King and Michelle Maxwell series, The John Puller series and the Will Robie series. I suspect we will like the others too when we get around to reading them.

    2. Lee Child, Stanford, Corben, Haissen, Patterson,Sheldon, the list goes on.

    I don’t keep a list but am a fan of books like the Baldacci offerings. I buy them at a local thrift shop at 50 cents each. Since I read at least 3 books a week, this source is great for me since my funds are limited. Of course there are many other authors who offer great books of the same genre but  seem to pick up Baldacci as often as I find them. Yes, I have bought duplicates…I can never remember titles. Read them again..always interesting.

    By far, my favorite books are the Lee Child “Reacher” series but since I have read all of them, I keep my eye out for other good reads.

    Can you guess that I don’t watch TV?

      3. We wish we had access to a thrift shop.

      We love Reacher too.    :hi:

        4. Wish you lived closer or postage was cheaper.

        I could send you my completed books gratis, just postage. Since I get them so cheaply, it would be a good way to pass them along. Our thrift stores here are many and all sell books at 2 or 4 @$1.00. Both hardback and paperback. Just now reading a great Vince Flynn. OK, the book is old but the story is great. (The Third Option. Love Mitch Rapp!)

        I have kept all my Reacher books(all 22 plus shorts)  but I do see them now and then in the shops. Want to take a chance? Let me know what you are looking for and we can message back and forth to  see the cheapest way to get them to Ohio.

        Thanks, happy reading. Big snow here tonight. Crazy winter in MA.

          5. Thank you, Paper Roses! You are so nice!

          We have read every single Reacher book!

          We have an excellent library. When we request a book if they don’t have it available they will borrow it from another library.

            6. Hi, just finished a book by Nick Petrie.

            Never saw any of his writings before but this was great. Sort of a cross between Jack Reacher and Mitch Rapp. I’ll be looking for more. Try ‘Buring Bright”, (a Peter Ash novel). It really got going after the first 10 or so pages.

             

            Off to check eBay for more by Nick Petrie.

            Enjoy your day!

              7. Thanks, Paper Roses! Peter Ash sounds like an interesting character.

              We will get the first one from the library.

              8. Hi Paper Roses I finished the first Peter Ash book. That was entertaining.

              We will order the next one. Now I’m reading Night Moves by Randy Wayne White.

              We have read all the Doc Ford books up to this one. Fun books.

                9. Thanks for the tips. I'm always looking for authors new to me.

                Doc Ford sounds great. Will keep my eyes open at my favorite shops. (and probably eBay!) I have a backlog of about 50 books but keep passing a lot of them when I get a recommendation from an avid reader of the type of books I like.

                Every few weeks I go through my accumulation and donate books that I pass to one of our local ‘free libraries’. These free spots are a great source of books. It is a ‘leave a book, take a book’ resource and many of us take advantage of this great free library. I buy most of my books at local thrift shops and then pass them along to the free spots.  Always welcome recommendations.

    10. Hi Enthusiast, just finished another Baldacci novel.

    If you have not read “The Hit”, it one of the best Baldacci books I have read. Worth checking your library…or my offer to send to you still stands!

    I’m glad I have a good supply of books right now.We in the Northeast are in for another big blizzard. Phooey! 3rd one in 2 weeks!

      11. Hi, Paper Roses. Sorry I'm so late in finding your post.

      I have been distracted by various ‘issues’.

      I have read The Hit by Baldacci. We liked that one too! That is the second book in the Will Robie series. We have read all of those and found them all to be entertaining.

      I recently read the second in the Peter Ash series by Nick Petrie—Burning Bright. Mrs. Enthusiast read it too. We liked it! Thanks for the recommendation.

      I hope you have thawed out up there by now. We had a little wet snow but it’s all gone now.

      :hi:
