    I have a couple to add:

    Saving CeeCee Honeycutt by Beth Hoffman

    As a circulation supervisor in the Ocean County Library- I say thank you Jason for promoting reading!
    As much as I love my computer, nothing compares to curling up with a good book!
    And my recommendation is–ONE FOR THE MONEY by Janet Evanovich!!

      The Plum books are fun reads. The first three are my favorites.

      Tell No One – Harlan Coben
      The Gun Seller – Hugh Laurie
      Into The Wild – Jon Krakauer
      Lucky Man – Michael J. Fox

      All of these are great quick reads that should get you a long four day weekend. :)

      Great choice.  Cant wait for the film.

        PS. I loved no eight the best

  • Ashley Resler

    Wild at Heart by John Eldridge is a recommendation! Not just for men, but for women as well:)
    I highly recommend the book Room by Emma Donoghue, it’s a Compelling story for anyone to read, but especially as a mom of three (one of whom is a 5 year old boy like the narrator of the story) my heart was rocked to the core.

    • Ashley R

      I meant to say “a GREAT recommendation” ;)

  • Blue Sky

    I’ve been reading too much just online lately. Still hope everyone reads Contact by Carl Sagan. And Selfish Gene by Richard Dawkins. Old books both. :-)  

  • A. Reader

    “The Invention of Air” sounds interesting to me–I’d give that a chance. I’ve read the “Hunger Games” trilogy and also enjoyed it. 

  • Anthony Krauch

    It kills me how no one has mentioned “The Artemis Fowl Series” by Eoin Colfer. I don’t like reading, but I LOVE those books (even though I own 7 of em, and only read 1 1/2 lol).

    You need to add ‘The Slap’ to your list.  Thank you for tweeting me the information.  The reviews on the book are either “love it” or “hate it.”  Picked it up yesterday.  Plan on reading it over the holiday and forming my own opinion.
