On my shelf for this summer? Mike Orenduff's Pot Thief series and Elizabeth George's newest. I like diversity in my reading.


Sunny Frazier

The Daniel Silva books, starting with "A Death In Vienna." Incredible writing, terrific plots. Betcha can't read just one!

All the Aubrey/Maturin novels by Patrick O'Brian - what a combination of skillful writing and adventure stories! And, of course, LOTR.


My latest favorites are Atonement by Ian McEwan, Hero by Michael Korda, and Riding the Iron Rooster by Paul Theroux. My classics are anything by Michael Connelly, Lord of the Rings (re-read about every 2 yrs), and most Hemingway and Steinbeck.

Texas,Alaska,Hawaii,South Pacific,by James Michener.
Oceanwatcher, Exploring Hanauma Bay,by Susan Scott.
On the Open Range, a treasury of folklore from my early childhood by J Frank Dobie.

Celia Yeary

You've left me wondering about the books on my keeper shelf. I have a very old edition of Willa Cather's O Pioneers, an old edition of her short stories, Farmer Boy by Laura Ingalls Wilder (old edition), and The Memory Keeper's Daughter by Kim Edwards, something by Elmer Kelton, and a big stack of assorted new/old books I love to re-read.
I have all 26 books by 80's romance author LaVyrle Spencer--she's still my role model. No one can write an emotional, vivid, heart-wrenching story as she does.
Nice question--Celia

J. R. Lindermuth

Webb's book has a permanent place on my shelf, too. The Flannery book sounds intriguing. I'll have to check that out.
Some other permanents on my shelf: Walden, Don Quixote, Wuthering Heights, Moby Dick and Jack London's Martin Eden.


Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte; Walking Through Egypt by Clyde Edgerton; O'Henry's short stories
