I haven't read Wyrd Sisters, but the Diskworld books are hilarious in an off-the-wall, punster way.

Anthony north

I think there's a Higgins one there I haven't read! As for Different Seasons, the first real flowering of King NOT as a horror writer.

Lori

Another list of books I've never read! (LOL)
Bella Mafia sounds like it would make an interesting movie.

Adelle Laudan

Nope,can't say I've read any of them. Clever list. Happy Holidays!

Carol

Okay, I tried to get Supreme Courtship from PBS just now, but it's not available. I put it on my wish list. Sounds like one I'd enjoy!

Merry Christmas from She Lives!

colleen

I see you have Dickens. Here is a link that talks about A Chrismas Carol being self-published http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/story/2008/11/28/ST2008112801604.html

I can't make out the image behind the heroin needle. Maybe I don't want to know.

perpstu

What a diverse list of books! I have read a few and put the others on a list to check out later!

Have a great TT

Ann Bruce

I just added Bella Mafia to my TBR. I'm a sucker for revenge tales.

FickleMinded

I have to wait for a while to read another SK book. the last book I read from him gave me so much nightmares.
btw, are you gonna post abt the books with the word Christmas on their title? :D

bernie

I just went through my reading list and noticed that almost all of my reading titles are four words or more, such as Bernard Lewis' "The Crisis of Islam: Holy War and Unholy Terror", or "Tokyo Now & Then".

Dead knock reminds me of a Monk episode on TV.

jayedee

boy oh boy! another list of books to read! you keep me jumping, that's for sure! happy tt!

Thea @ I'm a Drama Mama

I keep reading your lists in the hope that one of these days I'll recognize one of the titles... : )

Debbie

Interesting list.

Nina Pierce

Wow, nice list.

Celticlibrarian

I haven't read any of these, but now I'm intrigued by Brief Encounters and Supreme Courtship.

Merry Christmas and Happy TT!

Chelle Y.

I am always impressed by how much you read. You remind me of my history professor in college. That man was a walking library! :)

Di

I'm going to take a leap here and guess that Forgotten Victory is NOT written by Gary Sheffield the baseball slugger!

Heather

Clever list! I've read the Scottoline - in fact, everything by her except the last - but have not heard of most the other authors.

Phils Grill

I have not read any of those books. They look interesting.

Geriatric Nurse

Interesting list of books. I will have to try them out.
Thanks for stopping by my blog.

Bella Mafia (Aaah! what a great title!) and Dirty Blonde are now on my Christmas list. Good thing The Husband's out there right now, doing the Christmas shopping.
I agree with Lori- Bella Mafia would make a fantastic movie, and it's not often I can say that without knowing anything about it. I could even play the lead myself.....:)
Great T13 Nicholas!
bella :) (of course....)

Hiya Nicholas!! Yay for book lists! Glad you found a Stephen King to include (*wink) and yes, these are some GREAT stories! As for the Terry Pratchett- I know a lot of people who enjoy him, but I do not. I admittedly have only had one experience with his writing; "Good Omens" which was co-written with Neil Gaiman. I adore Neil, and nonetheless simply could not make it through the book. TP seems to depend rather heavily on puns and IMO doesn't do them near the justice that say... Piers Anthony does them in his over the top Xanth series.

Mark

Interesting list, particularly the first world war book. I will look into picking that up. I've also read 'Forgotten Voices' which I see you are currently reading. All of the Forgotten Voices series are excellent.

The Bumbles

Hmm - how about Falling Man (which I hated actually - wouldn't recommend), or Red Dragon, or Little Women? Is Wuthering an adjective? If so I also nominate Wuthering Heights. Thanks for visiting our T13 (backyard rink) as always!

Matthew James Didier

Only two in your list this time... Pratchett and Dickens... I must be slipping.

PopArtDiva

For some reason I've only read a few on this list - but I find I have so little time for reading books as I spend more time on my websites and blogs. A sad commentary on the changing world of literature today.

A friend and I were just discussing how the computer has changed so much of old school thinking - and publishing is changing too with the advent of Amazon and the plethora of self-publishing sites. Not to mention the traditional publishing world getting stingier on every aspect of their business as they neglect new writers for established ones with name and dollar value.

Nicole Austin

Wow, a Stephen King that I haven't read...yet. I'll definitely be picking that one up. Great list!
