What book do I return to:

 Karen E. Olson is the award-winner author of the Annie Seymour and Tattoo Shop mysteries and the new suspense novel HIDDEN. She lives in Connecticut.

Please consider participating in it, Elgin!

I second Elgin's commendation. I learn so much about the reading interests of others, and my horizons are constantly expanding because of the discoveries. This posting, for example, includes unfamiliar authors' names, and I will be visiting the library to see if I want to test those waters.

I've said this before, Patti, but it is worth saying again: Your blog is a wonderful resource, and I am most grateful for all that you do to produce the site. Brava!

Also welcome to do one, R.T.
Stewart O'Nan is a wonderful writer. Try A PRAYER FOR THE DYING or LAST NIGHT AT THE LOBSTER.
