Since I'm home recovering from surgery, I have a lot of time to read. I just got a Kobo Touch eReader last week and I just love the convenience of having any book I want at my fingertips!

Has anyone read a book they'd like to suggest?

If you have not yet read A Dog's Purpose, now is the time. I also liked The Art Of Racing In The Rain. If you like Carol Burnett, her book This Time Together was good.

I second both of Vickie's suggestions. If you haven't read the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo trilogy, I also loved those - even though I thought I wouldn't. If you want fluffy, Janet Evanovich's series, starting with "One for the Money" are good. Jen Lancaster's books are also a pretty funny read. Bossypants by Tina Fey (though the language is a little raw); Lots of Candles, Plenty of Cake by Anna Quindlen (though you're young and it may not resonate as much with you) - or really anything by Anna Quindlen. I also love all of Jodi Picoult's books, and Sarah's Key was good (Tatiana somebody whose last name I can't remember is the author - I know, not helpful).

Thank you ladies. I will check it out for sure. There are a lot of free eBooks on the Kobo website, I've read some of them.

Tina, I'm not as young as you think I am. I'm in my late thirties, with 40 fast approaching :cry

Gladys Taber - Her Still Meadow books or her dog books

Here is my list
Louise Penny's mysteries. She has won the Agatha award several years in a row. They take place in Canada.
Alan Bradley's Flavia de Luce mysteries (also an Agatha award winner)
Hunger Games trilogy
Unbroken: A World War II Story of Survival, Resilience, and Redemption by Laura Hillenbrand has been on the best seller list forever and is a great non-fiction book. (However, there's some pretty disturbing prisoner of war stuff that was described.)

Thank you for the suggestions Hester. I saw the Hunger Games movie but would love to read the trilogy!

I've also watched the 2 seasons of Game of Thrones on HBO, very interesting but I get lost in the characters. Maybe I should read the books this summer to make sure I remember when season 3 comes on.

That's still young to me!! Anna Quindlen has just turned, or is approaching, 60. Her family is grown and she reminisces on what her life has been like, and what she looks forward to. I loved it and you might, too - even though you have a ways to go.

No problem Donna. Most books, even "old" ones, are now available as eBooks too. I actually liked your suggestion for Katie Up and Down the Hall. I remember when the book came out but never thought of buying it.

I've read a lot of the ones suggested so far and liked most of them. I don't know if they are available on e-books, but 'My Life with George' and 'The Badness of King George' about a naughty Cavalier are ones I enjoy! :tg If you're into sci-fi or fantasy, anything by Asimov / Arthur Clarke / Anne McCaffrey / Mercedes Lackey etc is good!
