Stack of Books With Large Print Stickers, Big Lettering, and Rural Covers

Large Print

Indulgence in Death by J.D. Robb. Nora Roberts pretends to be someone else.

Edge by Jeffery Deaver. Remember what I wrote about Deaver before? Yeah, neither do I. I do recall I typed the words "Anthony Neil Smith" and someone - likely Smith - googled their way over here. You know who else googled their way here? Someone searching for "debbie does lake mills". I'll blame that search on Anthony Neil Smith too.

[An aside] Smith runs a fiction magazine entitled Plots with Guns. But, Plots is an online magazine and, even though the selected short stories are supposed to be very solid, I refuse to read stories off a computer screen.

EDIT, 13 November 2010: Once again my humor fell flat and appeared insulting rather than than good-natured ribbing. My apologies to the great and mighty, and recently well-traveled, Anthony Neil Smith. My most enjoyable moment at today's event was sitting with and listening to Smith and Victor Gischler chat.

Chasing the Night by Iris Johansen. Front cover has a kid wearing hooded sweatshirt in the woods. I refuse to say the word "hoodie".

Widower's Tale by Julia Glass. Front cover has guy in his fifties sitting in front a barn and smiling. Does that mean he is happy his wife is dead? Read the book and find out.

Nemesis by Philip Roth. Never read one of his books.

An Unforgettable Lady by J.R. Ward (writing as Jessica Bird). I do not recall anything about either Ward or Bird as an author name.

The Last Talk with Lola Faye by Thomas H. Cook. Photo of rural setting. Open mailbox in foreground.

Bad Blood by John Sandford. Cover has a guy walking to a barn and carrying a length of lumber and a hammer.

Santa in Montana by Janet Daily. Snow covered trees on the cover.

Happy Ever After by Nora Roberts. Book four in the Bride Quartet. Cover has kissing couple dressed in wedding clothes.
