    Some great books to read. I just recently purchased a Kindle and it is so hard to get used to. I really don’t like it. I LIKE TO TURN PAGES AND USE A REAL BOOKMARK!!!!!!! It took me over 45 minutes to figure the thing out but will try to continue to use the thing. “Jar of Hearts” sounds intriguing maybe I will download that. Once again thanks for the suggestions.

      Ha! I had the opposite problem! Now when I read real books, I poke the page like my kindle and expect it to turn for me. hahaha

    Thanks for the new picks, Lisa – and I liked your suggestions for Christmas gifts for readers, too! I just finished listening to Arrowwood at your suggestion – that was a good one that kept me guessing until the end. I’m currently reading Meddling Kids by Edgar Cantero – it’s a fun, campy story about a group like the Scooby-Doo gang and what happens to them when they grow up. Not really deep, but fun. For example, the river in the Pacific NW town they’re sleuthing in is called the Zoinks River 🙂 If you’re looking for something light between the dark thrillers, I would recommend this. A warning, though, it does go a little heavy on the swearing in parts, if that kind of thing bothers you. Happy Holidays and happy reading!

      Oh good! I always love to hear it when people read books I suggested and liked it. Is the Meddling Kids a YA book?

    Several commenters on Amazon said they felt it should be a YA book, but I felt that with the swearing and such, it really was written for an older audience. I probably wouldn’t recommend it to my 18-year-old granddaughter or my 16-year-old grandson, if that means anything. Plus, I’m not sure how much that generation was into the original Scooby-Doo, so a lot of the references might not resonate as much with them…

      Well I was a HUGE Scooby Do fan as a kid!!
