        WEB Griffin

        I will happily second what mrkoje said about the Badge of Honor series by WEB Griffin. As well as the other series that he has written.

          I very much like James Webb's books, particularly his books set in Asia. I have just started rereading China Pilot by Felix Smith. If you are a pilot or interested in aviation, I recommend it. Finally, I have read Air America and The Ravens a couple of times.

              GM-

              Thanks for posting that book again, I had completely forgotten about it but now remember wanting to check it out. Edit: I just looked on Amazon and the closest title I could find was "Thomas Cochrane the True Story of a Fight Sea Captain" by Robert Harvey is this the same book?

              So I went on a bit of a book buying spree last night. I bought "Under and Alone", "Blue Blood" and "I Love a Cop" on Amazon for $40 all together, including free shipping. I went to Borders last night and started thumbing through "Under and Alone" and thought it looked really interesting. The $25 price tag made me hesitate though, and I decided to check out Amazon instead.

              My summer reading list is suddenly full.

                I have just finished the new harry potter, I quite enjoyed it although it does leave you hanging.

                I have been reading some South African war books, that are quite interesting.

                  Real Estate for the Small Investor was a good book. Opened my eyes and wallet to the market.

                    The author is Mark Haddon, and it's an excellent book.

                          I need a suggestion for a book to read. I am in my Patricia Cornwell stage and love the books, but need a little laughter. Any suggestions?
                          I dont like romance novels unless they are old classics like Wuthering Heights...thats too deep for me at the moment.
                          A book about raising children that is humorous would be great. I loved Babyhood by Paul Riser even before I had a child; naturally it was funnier after I had a child.
                          Anything like that out there?

                            Sorry, no humorous books about raising children come to mind...I spend WAY too much time bogged down in keeping up to date by reading medical junk But if you just want to laugh may I suggest any of the collections of short stories by Jean Shepherd.

                                Styx, I thought of a book called "So you are going to be a Dad" I don't remember the author. I don't think it is quite what you have in mind, but it is soooo funny I frequently would laugh till I couldn't breathe anymore..... The authors story of a friend taking pleasure in telling her male version of birthing is so funny and descriptive that my hubbie crosses his legs in pain lol It's just a fun read
