Best books I've ever read...

That's a pretty tall order, I know. But there are some books that just feel that way. In no particular order, here are the ones that come to mind right away.
  1. The Last Lecture by Randy Pausch - quick, easy read that means so much more than just a quick, easy read.
  2. The Beekeeper's Apprentice by Laurie R. King - love the new take on the Sherlock Holmes legend.
  3. Doomsday Book by Connie Willis - time travel, intrigue and character development all wrapped up in one. And I went to college with her daughter :)
  4. Undead and... series by MaryJanice Davidson - I laugh out loud every time I crack one of these open.
  5. The Gideon Oliver mysteries by Aaron Elkins. Can't pick a favorite, they're all good. There's science, romance and mystery as well as just plain good old-fashioned sleuthing.
More to come, but for now, that;s probably plenty.
See you in the stacks!

  2. Just wanted to express my appreciation for including the Gideon Olivers in your best-five list.

    Obviously, you are a woman of great perception and discrimination!

    Thanks, Aaron Elkins
