I buy and sell my books in eBay. The ones I really I like I keep. I have a library in my house with floor to ceiling bookshelves.

I have a lot of catching up to do.... I've used Shelfari ( http://www.shelfari.com/ )for several years to keep up with the books I've read and want to read. I also am know to donate books I've read but sometimes will hold onto them longer than necessary......

I don't keep books, I used to sell them at the used book store in Utica, NY but that has since closed, so now I donate them to the library here in Lake Placid FL or in Herkimer, NY. I have all my lists in a spiral notebook, one page per author until it is full then I start another page, have had to do this with Patterson he is so prolific. Getting there with several others, Cornwell soon, Charlaine Harris, Laurell Hamilton filling up the page fast, this is a double list per page. I will have to check out Joe Hill and Tabith King.

OK, AND HOW DO YOU KEEP TRACK OF THE BOOKS/AUTHORS THAT YOU HAVE? DO YOU KEEP THE BOOKS ARTER YOU'VE READ THEM? IF SO, HOW DO YOU STORE THEM? I'M BEGINNING TO GET OVER RAN BY MY BOOKS! I ALSO HAVE A GREAT DEAL OF PARANORMAL AS WELL AS MYSTREY BOOKS THAT I KEEP. THERE'S SO MANY NEW AUTHORS & GREAT BOOKS COMMING OUT THAT I JUST HAVE TO KEEP TRYING THEM ALSO. AND I JUST FOUND OUT THAT JOE HILL IS STEPHEN KINGS SON. I DON'T LIKE STEPHEN KING (BUT LOVE HIS WIFE, TABITH) SO WILL TRY HIM. NOW I'M TRYING TO MAKE SURE I DO MY EXERCISES BEFORE I BEGIN READING - SORT OF A REWARD FOR GETTING THEM DONE. I THINK I HATE EXERCISING AS MUCH AS I LOVE READING! emoticon

I keep list and have read all the Kellerlman, Reichs and all but King Tut of Patterson. I also like J D Robb and have been waiting to read Fantasy in Death but not at the library yet. All the Sue Grafton books, Laurell Hamilton all except one due out in June, Bullets. Patricia Cornwell, all of hers. Tony Hillerman, Southwest mostly, Lillian Jackson Braun, Detective Cat all of them, All of Evanovich, Hiaasen mostly Florida. J A Jance all of them, Sherillyn Kenyon, paranormal, most of them. Jefferson Bass, all of these too. Charlaine Harris, most of these I can get my hands on. Also like Patricia Briggs, paranormal stuff mostly. J R Wards, Black Dagger Brotherhood, all but the one out soon, Lover Mine,
Nevada Barr, all of these, Susan Krinard, more paranormal. More than you really wanted to know I expect.

I'm a Coben and Kellerman fan. I've read a couple of Reichs' books, but I struggled to get through them. Another one I really like is Lisa Gardner - there's always a twist at the end that really surprises.

I'm with June on Coben & Evanovich. I even liked the (2) Evanovich non-Plum books.

Slowly and surely wins the race.

Love all of them. Jefferson Bass is good too. One of the authors is the founder of the Body Farm in Tennessee.

Kellerman & Reich fan here. I've been absent from reading for a couple of years and am now back -- the first book out the gate for me is Evidence by Kellerman not a quick draw-you-in in the beginning but I'm getting into it.

I read everything by James Patterson and Jonathan Kellerman, my absolute favorites. However, I can't get into Kathy Reichs. I love the Bones TV series, but can't seem to read her books.

Other favorites are Kay Hooper,Sandra Brown & Robin Cook.

Kathy Reichs & Jonathan Kellerman (I am very, very, very distantly related) are some of my favorites, and I will revisit them after I graduate! No leisure reading for me until after June 26!

I also like (on the lighter side) Harlan Coban and Janet Evanovich (only her Stephanie Plum series).

Go beyond success...
be significant.

Any James Patterson fans out there? How about Jonathan Kellerman or Kathy Reichs. I deal with a lot of troubling, true issues at work, so I love to be entertained with a good mystery when off the clock!!
