SparkPeople Janet Evanovich and Stephanie Plum Team Messageboard People who have read the Stephanie Plum books and other books by Janet Evanovich. We mark our journey with fun markers, did you have a Ranger Day or Lula Day? SparkPeople Janet Evanovich and Stephanie Plum Team Messageboard Hi! Hi everyone! I'm jingles. I'm new to SparkPeople, and I love the Stephanie Plum series. I've read all but Tricky Twenty Two, which should be out in just a few days. These books always make me laugh out loud, as Stephanie and her grandmother seem to get caught up in some pretty hilarious situations. And then there is the handsome Joe Morelli of course :) <BR> <BR> I'm excited about using SparkPeople as a tool to help me lose weight. I'm still learning my way around the message boards an... Thu, 12 Nov 2015 10:50:39 EST I am new to this team I have read all 21 Stephanie plum books and I have read the 3 Kate O'Hare and Nick Fox books. I pretty much like any book written by Janet Evanovich. <BR> <BR> I'm wheelchair bound with type one diabetes, have been since 2001. I prefer to read fiction. Janet Evanovich has a sarcastic tone to her writing that makes her books impossible to put down. I especially love Bob the dog and Rex the hamster!

It could be shutting off the tv or computer for a time period each day and doing something else in that time. It could be enjoying a hobby for a certain period of time per day or organizing/decluttering for a certain period of time. You can also use other ways to measure it other than time. For example, you might set a goal of cleaning out one drawer or closet per day.

Thu, 21 Feb 2013 20:14:07 EST Hello again It has been awhile since I've been on Sparkpeople because I was doing so well but lately have fallen off of the wagon and have started eating like Lula again. I love anything with chocolate. I'm excited to be back and wanted to say Hi. I love Stephanie Plum and buy the newest book as soon as it comes out in stores. But of course I love anything that Janet Evanovich writes. She is so funny. <BR> <BR> A little about myself: I have a wonderful husband, stepdaughter whose 19 and stepson who...

Mon, 18 Feb 2013 10:04:35 EST What scene made you LOL We have all had them, you are sitting quietly reading your latest Janet Evanovich book and you suddenly laugh out loud and everyone stops to look at the crazy person laughing as she is reading a book - <BR> <BR> One that comes to my mind is when Ranger says he isn't sure about the way Stephanie's grandmother is looking at him. Stephanie tells him that Grandma wants to see him naked. To which Ranger replies - Babe, I wish you hadn't told me that. <BR> <BR> Mon, 18 Feb 2013 10:00:19 EST Intro thread Hi Everyone - <BR> <BR> I am certainly not going to stop anyone from starting a new thread in the introduction forum but if you just want to put a message here this is going to be the sticky place to say hi, what Janet Evanovich books you like or have you read them all. What you are up to in life and that sort of thing.

Fri, 9 Sep 2011 20:28:27 EST Stephanie meet Stephanie Hello all, I'm Stephanie from Oklahoma. I love to read and as most of you said Stephanie Plum is one of my guilty pleasures. We were introduced 8 or so years ago, my college roommate read all the time like me, but she read the sappy mushy gooshy stuff and I liked mystery and analytical (ie Corwell and MH Clark).

I was trying to string them out to last me until the 17th comes out, but I just can't stop reading! Looks like I'll be going a few days with nothing to read.

You can either add extra to what you already do or start these items, if you don't do them already. <BR> <BR> The first will be a sit-up challenge.

Okay, so obviously the series itself is easy enough to read in order, one for the money ect. lol. But as for the in-between the series books, how in the world do you know which order they go in!? I read plum spooky before the Christmas one, and found out that the Christmas one told a lot of Disel's story, I was so confused the first of Plum spooky because I had NO idea who he was!?

Does anybody know when the next book comes out? Thu, 8 Apr 2010 12:20:56 EST Katherine Heigl as Stephanie. Hi, I don't know if this is old news, but I just read in our Local Newspaper that Janet Evanovich announced that Stephine Plum will be played by Katherine Heigl on the big screen. I don't really have any objections to her playing Stephanie, but I never pictured her as Stephnie. Any thoughts? Fri, 19 Mar 2010 08:15:04 EST Hey! Just joined the group! I freaked out when I saw this group! I love all of her books! Tue, 26 Jan 2010 15:07:58 EST Hey there! I have been a spark member for a while but never did anything with it.

Sun, 17 Jan 2010 20:41:09 EST How do you scrap your weight losses? I am new to Spark people after having just started on January 3rd. I have been a scrapper for 15 years and wondered about what types of things you put in a scrapbook about your weight loss journeys. I am doing a blog on my weight loss, but am looking for a visual format. Tue, 12 Jan 2010 00:59:36 EST Hello Hi, my name is Connie and I live in Alabama.

Love it so far Tue, 18 Aug 2009 00:53:51 EST Hi I'm new! I started reading the series while I was deployed and became an instant fan. I love Janet's writing style and humor. I'm originally from PA, my Dad was from NJ so some of what she talks about really hits home. Especially the Butterscotch Krumpets from TastyKakes. I grew up on them! They taste like heaven but are really evil! <em>211</em> <BR> I can't remember the last time I had one, had to be a couple of years now. Can't wait for #16!

I do want to give a warning. Don't read it while you're eating. You'll see very quickly why. I'm only a few pages into it and hope the rest of the book isn't like this. Lets just say the first few pages are why I don't read King of Koontz. I'm a little disappointed so far, but Janet has never let me down before, so I'll give her a chance. <BR> <BR> ...

I am Cindy from Colorado and very new to SP. I have read 1 through 14 of the Plum series. Just purchased Plum Spooky, but haven't had a chance to start it yet. I am a HUGE fan of Janet Evanovich. I wish you all the best of luck with your weight loss goals. Happy Reading! <BR> <BR> <em>213</em> Sun, 17 May 2009 19:38:48 EST Awesome! Hi, I'm Sandy. Joyce inadvertantly told me about this team. I never knew it was here!! I am a HUGE JE fan and have read every one of her books. I even met her and her daughter, Alex, at a book signing once. <BR> <BR> I've recently started working on my first book and Janet was definitely the inspiration that got me going. I am thrilled this team is here!! <BR> <BR> Sandy Tue, 12 May 2009 18:37:59 EST HELLO FROM A NEWBIE! Hey everyone, my name is jennifer from houston tx. I recently got addicted to the Stephanie Plum books. At work i listen to books on CD while I'm working and I have totally fallen in love with these books, especially sicne Lori Petty is the one reading them. I am currently listening to "Two for the Dough" and it is awesome! Great spark group here! Good lick everyone, keep smiling! Thu, 7 May 2009 13:06:34 EST What do you read in between Stephanie Plum Books? I read every day and would like to know what other authors y'all like to read in between SP books. <BR> <BR> Suggestions? Sat, 2 May 2009 11:07:54 EST Stephanie guilty pleasure They say there is a team for everything and now I am convinced. I absolutley love reading SP books! They are the only books I have found that can make me literally burst out in laughter! Glad I've found y'all! Fri, 24 Apr 2009 19:57:56 EST new from the florida panhandle.. i just found the plum series a few months ago and read them all along with the between the number series.... wonder woman use to be my favorite super hero now alas it is stephanie plum... oh too have ranger and joe in my life wow wow (sorry hubby). Mon, 20 Apr 2009 23:13:22 EST A New Plum Fan in Cali I think Stephanie Plum is everything a crime solver should not be and I love it. I'm looking forward to number 15. <BR> <BR> MARY Thu, 16 Apr 2009 02:11:14 EST Parting is such sweet sorrow Hi fellow JE lovers, I find that I am too overextended leading and participating in teams here on SP and need to drop a few. I will miss you and may check in again when the next numbers book appears. Take care and be well, Carol (CMY) Mon, 13 Apr 2009 12:21:00 EST Does anyone listen to the Stephanie books? I was never much of a reader. About two years ago I took some books on tape out of the library to listen to during a long commute, and I became hooked. It was the best thing I've ever done. I've listened to so many good books (mostly mysteries but others, too, including some nonfiction) and even offer opinions to others who are looking for books. <BR> <BR> I had a hard time starting up with the Stephanie series, but last summer I started with One For the Money, and I have worked my way up.... Tue, 7 Apr 2009 23:46:55 EST I wish I could eat like Stephanie! These books kill me when it comes to Stephanie's diet. If I read too many of them in a row I start to believe that I too can eat like Stephanie and my fat will just melt off in a day (like hers does in Ten Big Ones)! <BR> They also make me start to believe that it is socially acceptable to eat a whole cake or 4 doughnuts in a single sitting. Or to eat peanutbutter sandwiches all the time. <BR> Anyone else notice how Stephanie's eating affects your own? Wed, 25 Mar 2009 20:51:55 EST Obessive pleasures... I read and have written Stephanie Plum fan fiction. Anyone else loves this guilty pleasure? Tue, 24 Mar 2009 20:31:50 EST New girl on the block Hi all, nice to see so many ppl that enjoy Stephanie Plum books, I adore her, she is so funny. Read all of Janet's books, except for Plum Spooky, so get it soon. Can't wait for her books to come out. Sat, 21 Mar 2009 19:31:51 EST Carol (Mystiqu eMystic) I don't know if the members of this team is aware of it, but Carol passed away two weeks ago. She was a member of a couple other teams I'm on, and we received word of her death. It was quite unexpected. Mon, 16 Mar 2009 11:51:23 EST Waiting for Finger Lickin' Fifteen What are you reading while you wait for the release of Finger Lickin' Fifteen this summer? <BR> <BR> Do you plan to reread the series before you read the new one? Mon, 9 Mar 2009 10:05:11 EST Do you exercise at home or in a gym? Just wondering if you work out at home or in a gym? I work out at home b/c the closest gym is too expensive. I just got (borrowed) a step and the video to go with it and I love it. If you do 30 min you burn over 300 calories. Yesterday I did once with the video and then another two times while just watching random shows on tv. I burned over 1000 calories. i plan to try to keep it up! Wed, 25 Feb 2009 10:35:31 EST Just finished Plum Spooky Diesel is cute, but he is too weird.... I want the next book to feature Ranger... <BR> Plus, I'm sad there is no next book to read. Any word on 15? <BR> <BR> Anyone else read it? Thoughts? Mon, 16 Feb 2009 16:16:01 EST Morelli Lover! OMG! I came across this group and just had to join, I am in love with the Stephanie Plum series I have read them all and I even have a couple of them on my ipod as audio books and listen to them while i work out and the people around me look at me like i'm crazy when I crack up laughing. <BR> <BR> Sat, 14 Feb 2009 20:03:23 EST New to Group Hi, <BR> New to the group and a Stephanie Plum fan. Read all the books except the last and Plum Spooky. Don't know how I got behind. My family on my Mom's side came from England to Trenton in 1887. I visited Trenton often while growing up. I laugh out loud reading these books. <BR> Faith Fri, 13 Feb 2009 19:53:15 EST Hello All Hello fellow fans, <BR> <BR> I am glad to find others who appreciate Janet Evanovich's books. I recommend them to a lot of people because I enjoyed them so much. They make me laugh so loudly I've scared myself. And then realized I scared the person sitting next to me at the dentist's office because I forgot where I was. <BR> <BR> I have found one person who didn't like them, and I can't fathom this. But she is strange anyway. Fri, 13 Feb 2009 13:48:35 EST Hey JE fans! There is alot of talk about the book, but not so much about why we are on the site. Who is with me and decide that we can have a little contest. And no I don't mean how many pizzas we can eat or beers we can drink. If everyone is up to it then we can all figure out what we want to do. Hope to talk to you guys soon.

I have to reserve Plum Spooky at the library--they were just saying last week that they just got a copy in. I can't wait ... Sun, 18 Jan 2009 19:04:42 EST What did you have for breakfast today? Just wondering what did you have for breakfast today. Start out by putting the total amount of calories you had and then tell us what you had. Maybe this will help with new ideas for healthy breakfasts. <BR> <BR> Calories total 335 <BR> 1 cup 2% Milk <BR> 1 Special K waffle <BR> 1TBSP Smucker's Sugar Free Strawberry Preserves <BR> 1/2 small apple <BR> 1 egg and 1 egg white omelet cooked with Pam <BR> <BR> It was delicious and very filling!

I like to do my elliptical and the PE teacher at my schools runs a free class two days a week with various stations. I also have a Next Move DVD I got from WW that uses weights and movement and really like that one too! Does anyone do anything adventurous? Thu, 15 Jan 2009 11:27:19 EST Which car do you like the best? Which one of stephanie's cars hold the best memories for you? So many cars so many bombs. Thu, 15 Jan 2009 10:43:49 EST Plum Spooky! Today I was sitting down at the Starbucks in Barnes and Noble drinking my sorta legal Latte and reading my new Stephaine Plum book(Plum Spooky)By page 10,I was laughing so hard I was crying.I was trying to laugh to myself but it was so hard. <BR> My new catch phrase is "Monkey Cooties"Just saying it makes me laugh! <BR> Here is a bit on page 9& 10,as follows" <BR> I was dumbstruck. One minute ,Carl(Monkey) was in <BR> the Jeep,and then,in an instant,he was inside the house. "Holy macaroni", ... Sat, 10 Jan 2009 21:10:52 EST What other JE books have you read? I read Wife for Hire, Naughty Neighbor, and ...can't remember the other one but it was about a single mom who went to work for a construction company and ended up marrying the guy...I never read the Metro Girl books, anyone have an opinion on them? Thu, 8 Jan 2009 10:14:57 EST Where would you stop? I know we all love the Stephanie Plum series but where would you stop with it? I think 20 is a good round number and who would you have her end up with? I might be the crazy one but I always hope she will get back with Ranger.

Wed, 7 Jan 2009 11:14:32 EST PLUM QUOTES Okay, from reading another post, and basically being a "just do it" person, I decided to start this thread. <BR> <BR> Here's what to do: <BR> <BR> Think about how Stephanie, Lula, Grandma Mazur, and others would handle a situation. What would they say? What would they do? Then write a quote for it. <BR> <BR> You can also just quote something from one of the novels too. It doesn't have to be a Plum novel, just one JE's. So much of what she writes can apply to so many things. <BR> <BR>... Tue, 6 Jan 2009 22:25:54 EST Would post more, if more activity What about goal? Hi! <BR> <BR> I absolutely LOVE Janet Evanovich and the plum series and the other knee slapping books. <BR> <BR> I was wondering why this team isn't more active?

A Janet Evanovich Team! *LOVE* I absolutely adore the Stephanie Plum series. I have gotten a few other friends to read them too and they also love them. I don't know how how Janet comes up with such excellent characters - and they just keep getting better!! I prefer paperbacks, so I haven't read Fearless Fourteen yet, and I can't wait! I haven't read any of Janet's non-Plum works, but I bought one the other day to read. <BR> <BR> I have been on Spark almost 2 weeks and am so gla...

Sun, 26 Oct 2008 13:27:56 EST Stephanie's a Jersey Girl & I Am Too! Hi everyone! <BR> I've been a SP since August, am thrilled to be here, and have had great success with the program so far. I have been a J.E. fan for years. I've lived my whole life in NJ and it cracks me up to drive the same streets as Stephanie does and to hear the same "Jersey twang" in J.E.'s characters. She really captures all-things-Jersey! I live in a very rural part of NJ, so unlike the Trenton area, where my biggest annoyances are the roosters crowing at the crack of dawn and deer... Sun, 26 Oct 2008 09:38:29 EST I'm new and from WV! Hi! I'm a sort of new SP member (since early July) and I love the Janet E books. Stephanie Plum and her friends are so funny! (Can't we all identify friends and family who are like these characters? I plan to be Grandma Mazur when I'm a little older!!! She's a hoot!) <BR> <BR> Haven't read the latest number book (won't buy it in hardback and haven't been to the library), and will look for the Plum Spooky book. <BR> <BR> But, when will there be movies or TV movies for Stephanie? Holl... Sun, 19 Oct 2008 21:00:17 EST Died and gone to heaven? What could be better than a place I can meet new people and talk about Stephanie Plum and her crazy antics all at the same time. I'm new to the program and accidentally stumbled on this team.....wahoo! My husband and I are both avid Evanovich fans..we especially love listening to the audio books since the narrator puts so much fun into the voices. I'm looking forward to meeting all of you wonderful gals and sharing fun with our favorite books. <BR> <em>201</em> Wed, 15 Oct 2008 13:56:05 EST Plum Spooky coming in January 2009 I was checking Janet Evanovich's website and the next in between will be Plum Spooky!

I even names my cat Ranger... <BR> I can't wait to discuss the books with people who understand why I can't read 5 pages without laughing out loud! <BR> <BR> ~Lace Fri, 3 Oct 2008 22:14:21 EST A newbster from Florida I'm Courti from Florida, married w/no kids, but I love Janet Evanovich books. I'm a bit behind as I'm only on #12. Janet writes with such humor and adventure, I'd like to be Stephanie's sidekick. I'd love to meet Janet some day. Sun, 21 Sep 2008 16:51:33 EST BOOK SWAP Hi! Is there a book swap out there that we can utilize? I have not been able to afford #14 and would love to read it. Wed, 17 Sep 2008 01:26:41 EST What do you think of Diesel?

Hi all! <BR> <BR> I'm Cheryl and I've read all the Stephanie Plum and Full series. I can't wait for the next Plum book. I heard it's coming in Jan 09 called Plum Scared. I am a HUGE fan and can't get enough of Janet's books. Mon, 8 Sep 2008 13:39:07 EST Evanovich fan from Jersey I love Janet and Stephanie! Every Janet book I've read has been a good read. I live down the shore in NJ. Unfortunately I have had the experience of visiting a bail bonds office in Trenton. Although the experience left a lot to be desired, the people definitely could have been in one of Janet's novels. The office manager had some kind of apparatus wrapped around her head for a broken jaw. (wonder how that happened?) The front door was locked, you had to be buzzed in. And there were pict... Sat, 6 Sep 2008 21:59:01 EST New to the team but not to Stephanie Plum Hey, everyone. I've been a long time Janet Evanovich fan. I was very happy to see a SparkTeam for those of us who enjoy her books, especially while on the dreaded stationary bike. Those books make my longest bike workouts seem short and fun. <em>246</em> Fri, 5 Sep 2008 22:53:08 EST Greetings from Kansas Long time Evanovich fan, fairly new to SP though. The Stephanie Plum books are the only series I refuse to wait until it comes out in paperback. I have to have them right waway. I noticed that a co-worker belonged to a Nora Roberts group, so I typed in Stephanie Plum in the search box and found this group. I am so happy, lol. Wed, 3 Sep 2008 23:55:47 EST Silly question I am trying to add one of those "Lost ??? Pounds with SparkPeole" and for the life of me can't remember where I found them the first time. Can anyone set me down the right path? <BR> <BR> <em>304</em> Wed, 27 Aug 2008 11:59:51 EST How is the weight loss going? I was just wondering how everyone here is doing, loosing their weight. So far, I have lost 7.5 pounds. I have so much more to get rid of, but 7.5 is better than nothing and much better than where I was before I started SP. Tue, 19 Aug 2008 14:38:24 EST New Janet Evanovich Fan - new to SP I can't get enough of Evanovich! I've read all her books so far and can't wait for the next one to come out, she can't right fast enough for me. <BR> <BR> My hubby just shakes his head as I completely crack up while reading. All the books are just so funny and the characters are a hoot. They make my day anytime I read them, what a pick-me-up. Tue, 5 Aug 2008 19:45:25 EST New Member - Janet Evanovich Fan Hello Everyone, <BR> My name is Sherri. I'm 32 years old from Indiana, Pa.

You cannot help but laugh out loud at them. Can be a little embarrassing when you are sitting in a waiting room and everything is quiet. Great escape! Can't wait to read #14. number 63 on the list at the library. <em>149</em> Wed, 23 Jul 2008 10:31:36 EST hi new plum fan here :) hi everyone, I just wanted to say hi and give a little intro about me. I am 27 yrs old and married for one year. I am a full time college student working towards a teaching degree! I love the stephanie plum series because she is such a strong female character. I really like it because she stands up to everything that comes her way and I can relate to many of her issues and also many of the characters! These books have gotten me through many hard times and always make me feel good :) Well... Sun, 20 Jul 2008 19:24:18 EST Hi all! I am so happy that I found this group! I LOVE the books... and am responsible for others sliding down the slippery slope!

I hope to find more of that here! <em>247</em> Fri, 18 Jul 2008 23:01:56 EST New Hi I'm new and just love Stephanie Plum. I just crack up reading these books.

Hi new here, just joined today and I love to read, I never thought I would fine a group devoted to Miss Plum! I just love her books! I want to be with Ranger just once.... One of my friends and I are always trying to think who should play him if there ever was a movie, so far the Rock comes in first. Wed, 16 Jul 2008 19:50:20 EST What has been your most Stephanie like moment? My mother read this series after I had been reading it for 5 yrs. Her statement was, does this sound like our family or what?! <BR> Daily Mishaps. That is my answer. The most mundane things seem to turn into comedy when I get involved. Read MY BLOG. I just have an uncanny knack of making a fool outta myself. Like Steph. Wed, 16 Jul 2008 10:37:12 EST Hi Everyone! Hi There! I just happened to stumble across this team today and I'm so happy I did! <BR> <BR> I've been a fan of Stephanie's it seems like forever, lol! From the first book, One For The Money, which I bought used, to the newest, Fearless Fourteen, which I bought in hardcover:) <BR> <BR> Thanks for the Team! Tue, 15 Jul 2008 18:51:20 EST Greetings from So. CA Hi everyone- <BR> <BR> New to SP and this team. I love Janet. I drove to Vegas to have her sign #12 2 years ago and was lucky enough to have her in LA this past month for #14. My friend and I were the 2nd ones to have her sign our books! I am on a weight loss journey as Stephanie is on better hair day, better car journey :0 Tue, 15 Jul 2008 02:49:32 EST New here I just found this time, this is so great. These books are so laugh out loud funny they are way to easy to read and go way to fast. I would love to know what it takes to be an author and be able to create characters like this. I have made it all the way through 14, how does a person wait for 15? Happy Reading. Mon, 14 Jul 2008 17:50:41 EST Suggest a Title for the Next Janet Evanovich FIFTEEN Minutes of Fame Wed, 9 Jul 2008 10:28:48 EST If You ALREADY finished Fourteen... Let's chat! What was your favorite part? <BR> <BR> Personally, I think everything to do with Zook, Mooner and the Stalker were hysterical. I mean, the potato bazooka? LOL I am STILL laughing... and Grandma trying to dig up Aunt Rose? <BR> <BR> I am dying to find out if Lula and Tank get married! And when Ranger called Stephanie to ask her to make Lula stop and she said, "No." And then asked him fro a favor! I really loved this... but I knew I would. Damn, it's hard to wait for next year! <B... Mon, 30 Jun 2008 20:57:05 EST Hi Everyone! Just today I got back on track with sparkpeople. I am determined to get fit. I took a chance when I typed Stephanie Plum into the search to see if anything would come up. I love this series. My friend had told me about them before but I didn't give them much thought. Now it is a different story. I started book one a couple of weeks ago and I am now on book 6. I can't put them down. They are the most hilarious books I have ever read. And Ranger and Morelli <em>2</em> Mercy Mercy Mer... Sun, 29 Jun 2008 13:18:57 EST I just found you! I LOVE Janet Evanovich and her Stphanie Plum stories. I'm reading Twelve Sharp right now. I already read Lean Mean Thirteen and hate doing things backwards but that's the way it was. Grandma Mazur is a hoot and so is Lula. Don't you think Janet would be a great person to paty with? Sun, 29 Jun 2008 11:48:53 EST Hi from the Oregon Coast!! I am completely addicted to Evanovich and Stephanie. Can't believe I have already finished 14 and have to wait a whole year for the next one!! At least I can come here and talk about 'em!! Fri, 27 Jun 2008 19:04:04 EST Hi, new to this team and two month SPer I grew up in New Jersey and just fell in love with Stephanie Plum from the first novel. When she ran Joe down with the car, I almost lost it. My DH hates when I read them in bed, because I laugh out loud and bounce the bed! And the dog! Oh my! <BR> <BR> CMY (Carol) Thu, 26 Jun 2008 22:03:48 EST oohhhmmmmannn I got a new scale today, my old one wasn't working right, so here is my New weight as of the new scale...on my old one I started out at 190, and lost down to 185, but not <em>234</em> Thu, 26 Jun 2008 15:02:49 EST Movie I've heard the rumor of a Stephanie Plum movie being kicked around for a while, and I gotta say I'm very excited! According to rumor, Stephanie will be played by Sandra Bullock, who I think is a good choice. What does the team think? And who would you cast for everyone else?

Thu, 19 Jun 2008 00:31:46 EST Does Anyone Want Plum Lucky? I have it and I have no one to share it with since I lost my Mom last October. She was my best reading buddy. I'll be glad to mail it to whomever is first to sparkmail me their address. Then that person can send it on to the next if you guys want to do that. <BR> <BR> I hate to see good books go to waste and our library won't take them as donations, the idiots! <BR> <BR> Mary Wed, 18 Jun 2008 23:59:50 EST Fabulous Fourteen Oh my goodness...I bought the book this afternoon, and I'm already 3/4 of the way through it. I had to MAKE myself put it down for a while. Definitely up to the standards we expect from Janet. I've laughed out loud so many times. Where does she come up with this stuff? I can just picture it...the car...all the people at Joe's IS AWESOME! Wed, 18 Jun 2008 21:50:15 EST Library lists I called my local library to see if they already had a waiting list for book 14...and even though it wasn't out yet..they already had a long list. I am #22 on that list. SIGH. I used to have all the number books. Then I let the wrong person borrow them and I haven't seen her or the books since. Now I just go to the library. I can't afford my reading habits. Especially with gas prices going up up up. So..I probably won't get to read 14 until August. I read the excerpt and shouldn't have... Sun, 15 Jun 2008 22:19:25 EST Lean Mean Thirteen Am I the only one that hasn't read this one yet?? I like to wait for them to come out in paperback and get my copy then.

I LOVE the Stephanie Plum books and have been sort of addicted to them since first reading them some time ago. I'm looking forward to reading Fearless Fourteen when it hits the stands. Of course that may put a crimp in my exercise plan for a couple of days while I re-read the whole series before starting Fourteen. <em>30</em> Wed, 23 Apr 2008 13:56:05 EST Hi from Nowhere Nevada Hi all, I am fairly new to SparkPeople, and am really enjoying it here!! I love Stephanie Plum, and love to live vicariously through her adventures and mishaps...oh, what I wouldn't do to pick between Morelli and Ranger...who would you guys pick?!?

I didn't know there was a team for Janet Evanovich, this is great! A friend introduced me to her books about 4 years ago and I bought them all, I fell in love with the characters and the fun. Everytime the newest book is released and I begin reading it I laugh out loud. If I happen to be in public, I get the strange husband just asks if I like it. Anyway I'm glad to be here and to have others to share t...

It was through the kindness of another Spark member that I did. Ok, so how many times have ya'll read and re-read the books? Sat, 15 Mar 2008 22:27:54 EST Long - Long time Janet Evanovich Fan I have been reading Janet's work since the publishing of book four in the Plum series. I work for a radio station, and had the privilege of interviewing Janet last month. What a thrill! Her books are so entertaining; her writing is wonderful! - and she is such a nice person! Her daughter Alex has worked the website, and we have exchanged emails concerning some of their products, and I feel a small connection with them....they are terrific to "the fans". Wed, 12 Mar 2008 12:46:18 EST New to the Team but a long time Evanovich Fan Hi everyone, <BR> I'm ecstatic to find this team. I started on Wed. and was looking through teams. When I found this one I knew it was meant to be. I love her books and the Stephanie Plum series are the best books I've ever read. Way to go team! Keep up the good work. Sun, 9 Mar 2008 11:17:48 EST Naughty Neighbor? I used to just read the Stephanie Plum series but while waiting for the next one to come out I've been reading her other stories. I went to the store yesterday to see about Naughty Neighbor and no one had it. I thought on her website she posted that it would be re-released Mar. 1. I went to her website last night and it says it is on sale but doesn't say a date. Anyone know? Sun, 9 Mar 2008 11:13:18 EST LOVE Janet but need to read between her books I love Janet's books. I discovered them 3 years ago on vacation and read books 1 to 9 in that week! I am the first person at Borders everytime she has a new book out. <BR> <BR> However, I need something to read while I am waiting for 14. Any suggestions for other authors? <BR> <BR> <em>304</em> Sat, 8 Mar 2008 19:00:10 EST Ranger Fantasies OK for the ladies who lean towards the Ranger-Stephanie relationship, do you feel that Janet should right a short novel about just Ranger and Stephanie set in an exotic place? Of course mystery and danger must surround them... hehe <BR> <BR> After having read book 12 and Ranger having stayed over a few nights, my level of frustration from their restraint is well... making me wish there was a simple Steph and Ranger only story. LOL Sat, 8 Mar 2008 13:47:10 EST Which role do you want to be cast in for a movie? The March Poll on Janet's Site asks: Plum Movie - <BR> Which female role would you want to be cast in for a movie? Here are your choices: Stephanie, Connie, Lula, Grandma Mazur, Joyce Barnhardt or Other. <BR> <BR> My question to you, is who (if you say other tell us who it would be) and why? Fri, 7 Mar 2008 16:51:38 EST 1st Fearless Fourteen Excerpt Available! Hey, did you know that the first Fearless Fourteen excerpt is available on Janet Evanovich's website? Here is the link <link><BR>ml#extop </link> <BR> <BR> What are your thoughts about how the new book begins? Fri, 7 Mar 2008 16:35:31 EST What is your Favourite Joyce Mishap? <em>38</em> <BR> Do you like it better when Joyce is tasered or finds a Bob doo on her lawn? <BR> <BR> Wed, 5 Mar 2008 15:43:23 EST What is your favourite Stephanie Plum scene? What is your favourite scene of all the Stephanie Plum books? Please include which book it came from, and a brief summary of it. I know that there are some many of them, it is hard to choose! <BR> <BR> Here is mine . . . From “Hot Six”, Mitchell and Habib take Bob to teach Stephanie a lesson, but they do not get very far because Bob just ate Grandma Mazur’s prunes. This passage had me tearing up with laughter. <BR> Fri, 29 Feb 2008 13:49:26 EST I Can't Believe I Found This Team!!! Well, there truly is a team for everyone, isn't there? lol My name is Pam, I'm 36, married to a U.S. Marine, we have 2 kids and are living overseas currently. I have always loved to read but went through quite a dry spell for the last couple of years. I happened upon a box of books downstairs about a month ago (we have a giveaway spot in our building)and thought how curious...there was a full series of paperbacks by some lady named Janet I took all of them, just in case I ... Tue, 19 Feb 2008 20:13:20 EST A Formal Introduction Hello to all! My first unofficial introduction was posting in the "Who Would You Cast" thread. So, I thought I would actually introduce myself in a more formal manner. I just join SP last week, and I am still trying to get everything in order - i.e., setting up goal tracking, beginning a SparkPage, etc. <BR> <BR> A few basics about me: <BR> <BR> 1) Name - Tiffany (Tigger and Max are my cats, thus the username tigandmax) <BR> 2) Age - 35 (for a least a few more months) <BR> 3) Location - Kan... Mon, 18 Feb 2008 16:32:02 EST I'm gratefully astounded that this team is here... Hi! I was just perusing spark teams and saw this one - I couldn't quite believe it at first! I love the stephanie plum books. My mom made the mistake of lending me one while I was home last summer, and I was so hooked that when she sent me an email in December asking me what I wanted for Christmas, I asked for the series... and then finished them in about eight days. <BR> <BR> I've been on sp for a few months now and haven't yet decided if the books are a necessarily a complementary for...

Mon, 18 Feb 2008 02:21:49 EST Oh my goodness....I'm so excited!!!! A few days ago, I found a team for tall ladies and I was so excited because I'm 5'10" and everyone there is tall. They get what its like. <BR> BUT TODAY, I found THIS team. I can't believe it!!! I absolutely LOVE Janet's books. I have read the entire series probably 3 times now. I just started re-reading the series because I'm fed up with everything else. I can't find anything like Janet's writings. I'm up to book number 4. I was on page 150 and I decided to see if there was any tea... Wed, 13 Feb 2008 22:18:57 EST June 14, 2008 I can't believe we have to wait until June 14th for the next installment/fix of Plum mishaps. Has anyone pre-ordered their books? Wed, 13 Feb 2008 04:34:07 EST Let's play a game.... Not sure if this will work, but let's give it a shot! <BR> <BR> Does anyone remember playing this game in girl scouts or school or whatever? Basically one person starts by saying "I'm going on a trip, and in my suitcase I'm packing my....." then the next person has to repeat the story adding to it something that she would pack in the suitcase. <BR> <BR> So, here goes! <BR> <BR> I'm going to the BAT CAVE...and in my giant Jersey sized bag... I'm going to pack my mascara! Fri, 8 Feb 2008 04:04:33 EST HAPPY TO FIND PLUM FANS!! Hey! I was just browsing sparkteams and came across this one. I love Janet Evanovich. Can wait for 14!!

Tue, 5 Feb 2008 05:21:58 EST Who would you cast in the movie??? Lets just say there was going to be a Steph Plum movie... who would you cast as the major players?! <BR> <BR> My friends and I have had a lot of fun...and only a few heated disputes...over who we would cast!! <BR> <BR> I have to say, there are some generational issues with this topic though!!! <BR> Mon, 28 Jan 2008 21:58:00 EST hi from MI I love, love, love the Plum Series!!

Mon, 28 Jan 2008 21:54:47 EST Who's your favorite side kick? Lula or Grandma? Just passing time between books! I like Lula the best. I can't help but love her weight issues. They are like mine. Remember the protein diet?! And the dogs! Too funny! Fri, 25 Jan 2008 08:48:06 EST Morelli or Ranger? I personally have the I love Morelli shirt. My friend is a Ranger girl.

I fell off the wagon a couple months ago, have gained 7-8 pounds and am really annoyed that I can't seem to get the scale going down instead of up. I'm giving Spark People another go, and hopefully this will get me jump-started again, worked before. <BR> <BR> I just got a box of books that I ordered from Books a Million yesterday, has Plum Lucky and Manhunt. I also got the most recent Diana Gabaldon book in her Lord John series. Has anyone read the Sue Grafton series, A... Sat, 19 Jan 2008 12:16:20 EST Hi, I'm new to the team Hi my name is Adrienne and I'm a Janet Evanovich/Stephanie Plum fan. I've read all of her Stephanie Plum books except for the new one, Plum Lucky. I have it reserved at the library and I just got an e-mail that it's available for pick so I know what I'll be reading this weekend! I'm in Richmond, Va anyone from there? <em>213</em> Thu, 17 Jan 2008 19:19:52 EST hi there. I love the books. Anyone else crave doughnuts or pineapple upsidedown cake after reading them?! I resemble Lula more than Steph. BUT have Steph's attitude...and luck most of the time. I seem to drive her kind of crappy cars too... Sun, 13 Jan 2008 20:31:12 EST Plum Lucky Reviews! So, I finished Plum Lucky a couple of days ago, and I was wondering what everyone's thoughts on it were. <BR> <BR> Overall, I was slightly disappointed. I didn't think it was as good as her other "between the numbers" books. <BR> <BR> But maybe I'm alone in this assessment and need to re-read it. Sat, 12 Jan 2008 21:41:55 EST A newbie here! Hey ya'll! Just want to introduce myself. I'm 31, lived in metro Atlanta my whole life (except when I went to Athens... GO DAWGS!) Even though I am a Georgia Peach, I absolutely love Stephanie Plum and her adventures! I'm just figuring out the website now. journey!

Tue, 8 Jan 2008 13:39:22 EST New Hi, Im Becky. My mom gave me a Stephanie Plum book about a year ago and since then I have read all of them but the short story in the Nora Roberts book. I have all of the Full series and a few of the other novels. I love the fact that the characters are real and worry about real things even if things happen to Steph that don't happen to really people so much.

Sat, 24 Nov 2007 23:13:13 EST Pounds Less than Lula (or The Weekly Weigh In) So, I was thinking that I'm slowly losing weight, but I have to remember that with every pound I lose, I look less like Lula. <BR> <BR> So this week, I weigh 1.5 lbs less than Lula. <BR> <BR> How many pounds less than Lula are you? Sun, 4 Nov 2007 20:41:08 EST Ten Big Ones - Spoilers Well I guess it depends on what you consider spoilers so if you haven't read the book then I don't suggest you read my topic starter nor any subsequent comments ;) <BR> <BR> And now that I have made that little blurb/disclaimer/warning let me add my two cents about this novel. <BR> <BR> So far I have laughed out loud on almost every page. It just gets better and better with every book. And now that Stephanie is temporarily living the Bat Cave and smelling like Ranger... well her heart goes ... Mon, 22 Oct 2007 22:06:41 EST Tired of looking like Lula! Hello... <BR> Dont get me wrong, I love Lula. I would just prefer to look more like Stephanie. I am new to SparkPeople and still trying to figure a few things out. I had a root canal done Wednesday afternoon and I am still in pain. It threw off my plans for a few days. Gonna coast thru the weekend and get back on track Monday! Wish me luck! Sat, 20 Oct 2007 11:24:39 EST HELLO HI EVERYONE I AM NEW TO THIS TEAM BUT I AM A BOOKWORMS TEAM MEMBER AND I DO LOVE MY EVANOVICH. SHE IS A GREAT WRITER AND HER BOOKS CAN OCCUPY YOUR MIND FROM COVER TO COVER ONCE I START ONE I CANNOT PUT IT DOWN UNTIL I FINISH IT. THEN I LONG FOR THE NEXT ONE. I WISH SHE WOULD PUT ONE OUT DAILY THEN I COULD HAVE MY ADDICTION TO HER BOOKS SATISFIED EASILY. IT IS SO LONG BETWEEN BOOKS THAT I FOAM AT THE MOUTH WHEN I HERE OF A NEW ONE COMING OUT. I DO LOVE THE STEPHANIE PLUM SERIES. Thu, 11 Oct 2007 15:21:34 EST Hi! I just stumbled upon this team and I just HAD to join. My mom turned me on to all of Janet Evanovich's books a few years ago. I have not read the complete Stephanie Plum series. I'm lacking the early part of the series. I have not read number 13 yet, but my mom has it waiting for me. She lives in Ohio and I live in Alabama, so I'll have to wait til I visit her at Thanksgiving! Sat, 29 Sep 2007 09:05:48 EST I love laughing out loud When I went camping last month with a bunch of people from my former church (mostly older people), one woman was reading a Janet Evanovich book and she was just cracking up out loud making me curious enough. So I asked. She told me about the book. I said I think I read something of hers before but couldn't remember. It certainly was something other than Stephanie Plum. <BR> <BR> Anyways, Merle finished Four to Score and handed it to me. I read it overnight and was hooked. She gave me #6 too.... Wed, 15 Aug 2007 11:11:15 EST Hello! My name is Jennifer and I love Janet Evanovich books. I'm glad to have found this Sparkteam. I haven't read #13 yet, but I can't wait. Her Plum series is the best, but I like the others too. I tend to become a book junkie when reading--sometimes I have to leave the books in the car! Sun, 24 Jun 2007 16:33:16 EST Lean Mean Thirteen Comes out tomorrow!!!!! <em>244</em> <BR> Welcome to our newest team members!!!! <em>235</em> <BR> <BR> Have you got your books reserved???? Elaine Mon, 18 Jun 2007 09:56:48 EST How did you first discover the Plum books? Just curious how everybody first came to discover Janet Evanovich? I had never heard of her or the Stephanie Plum books (my fav) until I won a drawing at my local library. The prize was a new book and it just happened to be Visions of Sugar Plums. I think I read it all that same night! Of course, then I had to read the series from the beginning! <BR> I don't know if I could choose between Morelli and Ranger! <BR> I have a secret desire to "grow up" to be ..........Grandma Mazur! She just crac... Fri, 8 Jun 2007 13:01:22 EST HELLO!!! Anybody out there???? Good Morning! Welcome again to all our new team members!! <em>235</em> Anybody read the new Janet Book yet? Not #13, the other one "Hotstuff". I'm still plugging away at the Outlander books. <BR> <BR> I dance, tap and clogging, and play tennis several times a week, as well as care for my live-in 85 year old mother with Dementia. Reading is my escape when mom takes her naps. Fortunately I have a wonderful husband that helps me with mom immensely, but it's a really trying life right now.... Fri, 18 May 2007 08:44:22 EST Outlander Series Thought I would start a fresh topic so I would quit hijacking the Newbie thread. <BR> <em>246</em> <BR> <BR> Elaine, I did check out the website for pictures. Wow, who the heck puts those there? Some of them were way out. <BR> <BR> I'm not too far in Dragonfly in Amber. I'm still getting used to the changes in time. I have to discipline myself and not read until 1 am. <BR> <BR> <BR> Wed, 2 May 2007 10:08:30 EST Newbie here! Just finished signing up and found this group! Wahoo! I love anything Evanovich.......even have begun to get my mum to read! Thanks for having me! Mon, 9 Apr 2007 00:38:51 EST Newbie to the team Hiya! <BR> I saw an "inbetween" book for the Stephanie Plum series, is this the latest book? I think we're up to 12 and waiting for 13 to come out right? Mon, 26 Feb 2007 13:30:09 EST Starting soon.. I have a couple of just random books to read (Lipstick Jungle, which I am LOVING and then Odd Thomas), then time to move on to book seven!! I took a few books off for something different, but I can not WAIT to start the book! :) Tue, 30 Jan 2007 11:54:03 EST new! hey ladies(and gents if there are any lol) my sister got me to read books 1-12 in november and i think i finished them in about a week and a half lol...then i went and read visions of sugar plums, then plum lovin when it came out last week. so needless to say...slightly obsessed. i seriously went through a depression like period for about a week after because i was so upset i was done! i can't WAIT to read the 13th. i haven't read any of her other books her other series as good? Tue, 16 Jan 2007 14:36:34 EST Ending my denial Going to have to change my ticker. I'm disappointed, but not as much as I would have been a year ago. I guess that means I've grown and learned a few things during this process. I'm not really discouraged and I know what I have to do. I just have to do it now. No worries. <BR> Thu, 11 Jan 2007 21:18:59 EST Back on track I am feeling so much better this morning. The last two nights I've gotten some good sleep. I had a decent breakfast this morning too. I told myself I couldn't get online until I had breakfast. I've been getting into a bad habit of getting online and then two hours later realizing that I missed breakfast. Mon, 18 Dec 2006 09:18:57 EST I'm finally back! Hi- I'm just taking a quick break from work to let you know that I have power and am back on the Spark! I am extremely busy at work right now and when I get home I pretty much want nothing to do with a I haven't really done much on here lately, but hopefully next week I will keep up with it... until I leave for CA to visit hubby's family for Christmas... then I'll have to catch back up again in January! <BR> <BR> I just thought I would say hello and let you know I haven't forg... Wed, 13 Dec 2006 16:25:13 EST Visions of Sugar Plumps Contest... <em>113</em> To get everyone in the Christmas spirit, I have a used hard copy of "Visions of Sugar Plums" up for grabs. Just not sure what to have people do to win the book... any suggestions? Tue, 28 Nov 2006 09:23:56 EST Metro Girl & Motor Mouth Any thoughts? <BR> <BR> I read MG a long time ago, and when MM was being released I reread it. Good thing they are pretty fast reads. I've started MM now and I'm trying to read it slower. I've only read a few chapters, and I'm still getting into the plot. Not too bad so far. Mon, 27 Nov 2006 23:43:47 EST Thanks for the wram welcome! Thank you all for the warm welcome. I am starting the You! on a diet plan today, 11/27... wish me luck. Anyone else doing the You! plan? <em>30</em> Mon, 27 Nov 2006 09:56:18 EST New Stephanie Plum and Lulu fan here... <em>41</em> Hi All, My name is Kathy and I just discovered Sprakpeople last week and am loving it so far. This is the first group I have wanted to join. I am a long time book lover and just got Janet's latest book, #12 in the Plum series. I haven't started reading it yet, but plan on it as soon as I finish what I am reading now. It is killing me too, having it on my night stand wanting to be read and what I am now reading is just mediocre I have also red the full series and Visions of Suga... Mon, 20 Nov 2006 15:14:17 EST Other Books So, What other books have you read? What Authors do you like? Has anyone read the Harry Potter series? I thought they were for children, but once I read the first one, I had to read them all and watch the movies. I loved them!!! Can't wait for the new book and movie to come out. Of course by that time, I'll have to re-read them all to reflect. <BR> <BR> I like Nora Roberts and Danielle Steele, but I mostly read Scottish Historical fiction when I'm not reading Janet books. <BR> <BR> Wh... Tue, 14 Nov 2006 23:34:27 EST Water Challange Thought this needed it's own thread. I got mine all in yesterday too. Tue, 14 Nov 2006 08:22:52 EST When do you read and how often? I have been trying to read a little every night. I have been finding that it calms me down before bedtime. I have also been watching less television. Fri, 10 Nov 2006 17:42:52 EST Stephanie Plum books 1 through 12 Anybody out there that has read all of the Stephanie Plum series? They are absolutely hilarious, as is her Full Series?
