it is funny- i cant remember the author, you can search on amazon to purchase it. It is full of short stories, which will probably be perfect if you get tired easily. having my hys on monday im gonna try and find my copy soon too.

Need some ideas for great books to read

I have a great passion for reading novels. My all time favorite author is Karen Kingsbury. I have read everything she has ever written and love everyone. When you start one of her books you think of nothing else. Talk about getting your mind off things!! She is an excellent storyteller and very touching. Anyone have any good christian authors to suggest?

That's good to know! I will watch for her. Along the lines of Christian authors, I am assuming you've read all the Left Behind books? The first of the three prequels came out a couple of months ago and chronicles the main characters' lives before the rapture. I really enjoyed it. And I like Frank Peretti. I haven't read any of Jerry Jenkins' other books yet, but he is a obviously a master storyteller, so they are probably great.

Janete Evanovich has a great series that is similar to her "stephanie Plum" line. It's main characters are Jamie Swift & Max Holt. The first one is called "full House" folowed by "Full Tilt". I think there are 5 or 6 books in this series.
Good luck with your surgery!!!

I think Janet Evanovich was on a talk show I was listening to on NPR recently. She used to write romance novels, right? Anyway, they asked her why she switched to mysteries, and her answer was, " when I hit menopause, my thoughts turned more naturally to murder than to romance." My DH wanted to know what I was laughing at so in the bathroom!!

I like JoAnn Mapson; she writes about women's lives in a very "real" way. Not "funny," but warm, loving, and uplifting. Her books always leave me with a sense of hope.

Don't be too surprised if you find you don't have the attention span for reading. I did much better with magazines and short stories; didn't have the ability to focus on anything longer...

My surgery is on Tuesday and I just bought "The Undomestic Godess" (which we all will be) by Sophie Kinsella

If you're a fan of Sex and the City...the author of that series Candace Bushnell, has just put out a new book called Trading Up and it's available in soft cover...

Good luck..and happy reading

I'm reading Kite Runner right now, by Khaled Hosseini. It is excellent. (Also a New York Times bestseller, and highly acclaimed.)

I love seeing what everyone is reading because I am an avid reader and always looking for new authors. Many of the ones mentioned are my favorites. I didn't care for Karen Kingsbury but the others I have all liked. Since you asked for funny I second the Janet Evanovich series and Sophia Kinsella has the Shopaholic series which is funny. An older series that is funny is the Mrs. Pollifax spy novels by Dorothy Gilman. Sarah Strohmeyer's Bubbles the P.I. books are funny. Tim Cockey writes the "Hearse" books such as "Murder in the Hearse Degree" and "Hearse of a Different Color". I loved Jasper Fforde's first series featuring the Fiction Detective Thursday Next who goes into familiar books to solve mysteries and now he has a second series of Nursery Crimes solved by Inspecter Jack Spratt and Sgt. Mary Mary of the Nursery Crime Unit. The first book in that series investigates the murder of Sir Dumpty. Was it suicide, accident or murder? Another funny author of women's fiction is Jane Heller. Have a few good laughs and enjoy the reads.

I just finished the Oprah book club book "A Million Tiny Pieces" by James Frey. This was a very interesting book. I couldn't put it down.
