David Hewson's Latest

I am looking forward to getting a copy David Hewson's new book in the Nic Costa series.  Titled (in the US) "City of Fear: A Novel," it hit the bookshelves in May '10!

Self Publishing and writers block

I am writing a book based on some of my experiences but in a fictional format.  Has anyone out there done any self publishing and if so do you have any tips?  What about writers block, I mean I have the concept and outline but actual writing of pages sometimes seems to bog me down, any ideas?

What I do with the Books I read

Bottom Line..... I donate them.  I bag them all up and drive over to the local library and put them in the donation bins.  I have no desire to accumulate tons and tons of dusty used books.  If I were a collector or had a small book shop that would be a different story but I live with wife and step-son in a ranch with no room for things to sit accumulating dust. 

What do you do with your books? Perhaps you EBay them, maybe thats something I should have done.  Start a used bookstore on EBay or Amazon.  Send me a message, maybe there is something I can do with all the books I read other than dropping them in a bin.

The Girl Who Played with Fire

I'm hooked.  I 'm about 150 pages in and I am hooked.  The characters and their backstories are very well done, drawing me right into their lives.  I can't seem to put the book down.  - Update I am on page 260, love the characters in the book.  I want to visit Sweden now.

Books I have read

I have read a ton of books and Im not slowing down anytime soon. Currently I am reading "The Girl Who Played with Fire (Vintage)", and just prior to that I finished "Ford County: Stories." I am going to put a list, from the best that I can recall,  of books I have read with links to their authors. Feel free to send me your authors and books. Particularly if they match the genre or style of things I have read
