Reading recommendations?

I'm starting to think I need reading recommendations for the long summer ahead. Ideally, I'd be able to find the book in accessible format. Tell me, what'ere your favorite books and authors? If you don't know if I can find it accessibly, that's fine, just comment and I'll see what I can find! I'm hoping to do some book reviews this summer too.

Almost anything by Nicholas Sparks is good. How is the recovery going??

I also want to tell you that I know what you mean about the inaccessibility of clothing... Usually I don't have problems with all the hooks and buttons at least not until I have to pee really bad!!!

Enjoy the rest of your week!!!!

Thanks for the recommendation! I'll be posting a recovery update soon, probably tomorrow or tonight as a two weeks out thing.

Thanks for the recommendations! You might consider reading the book "Things fall Apart". It's on bookshare. It was written in response to "Heart of Darkness".

Have you started "Left to tell" yet?

Reading Recommendations
I don't really know what you like to read. Bookshare has tons of good dog books. After a year at college, I wanted as much mindless fiction as I could get my hands on. So, just a few recommendations of stuff I like; your mileage may vary: Anything by Gwen Hunter; she writes about a female doctor, her friends and family, in the south, and some strange things that happen. Robin Cook: some of his newer stuff is a little out there, but he writes medical thrillers; two of my favorites are Acceptable Risk and Mutation. I know there are others by him that I really liked, but I can't think. Most anything by Mary Higgins Clark: her new bestseller, Two Little Girls in Blue is out on Bookshare. I haven't read it yet, but the synopsis looks good. The O'Malley series by Dee Henderson: Christian-based suspense, and some sadness too. The bed and breakfast mysteries by Tamar Myers are good: I've read some of these on Bookshare, but I like them better on tape from NLS. You won't find lots of high suspense, but the books are very funny. I also enjoy books by Torey Hayden. They're not fiction, but are very good. They're about a special ed teacher and some of the kids she works with. My favorites were Ghost Girl, and Not Just Another Kid, but they are aall good. Hope you enjoy some of these. Happy reading.

Re: Reading Recommendations
I'll definitely check out the stuff you suggested! I've read and absolutely loved the O'Malley series.

More Reading Recommendations
You might want to try any book by Jeffrey Archer. There's a collection of short stories that are awesome! You can find them on bookshare for sure. He's an English author. I read a lot of the books over Christmas break and loved them. Jonathan has written a review of his most recent book, so ya might want to check it out.
