We're running out of favorite authors!

In our two years aboard, we've gone through Dick Francis, Stuart Woods, Robert B Parker, Lawrence Block and a few more I can't think of just now,. I've also exhausted the brain candy authors: Lilian Jackson Braun, Christopher Harris, and Christopher Buckley, Carl Hiaason and Dave Barry.

Who do you read when you're not on watch? What's your favorite sipping wine at anchor reading?

Where are the best used book stores along the east coast?

Recently I've been enjoying the Italian author Andrea Camilleri. He writes a series featuring a Sicilian police detective. I am also starting at the beginning of Dorothy L. Sayer's Lord Peter Wimsey series.

As for wine, I'm partial to anything from Spain, Portugal and a select few reds from Greece.

I just read Jeffery Archer's "Paths of Glory," a fictional story based on the life of George Mallory of Mount Everest fame. While this is not one of Archer's best books, it is still very good, Generally speaking, anything by Jeffery Archer is excellent. He keeps you on the edge of your seat from the first page until the last. He is a master of suspense. In one novel, "First among Equals," you literally don't know how the story ends until the very last word. Other novels by Archer are "Kane and Abel" "The Prodigal Daughter" "A Matter of Honor" think that Archer is one of the best English language writers writing today.
I simply must add that anything by Ken Follett should be on everyone's must read list. "Lie Down with Lions" is excellent and set in Afghanistan during the Russian occupation. "A Dangerous Fortune" is an intriguing story involving the privileged English class of the late 1800's. Like Archer about whom I commented earlier, Follett's stories are characterized by incredible plot turns and peopled with real people.
anything by clive cussler---is sea related and mysterious but with a touch of comedy and makes fun of the classic mysteries lol
i sleep while not on watch--read any mysteries i havent yet read--i think i have most of them covered--love lee child, nelson demille, kathy reichs, clive cussler,m of course ..lol....many others----and many times i merely read the insides of my eyelids..lol....
wine?? when at anchor--i usually drink water..lol......is the best wine i know of..lol
Just finished Fool by Christopher Moore. I think it's one of his best. Laugh out loud. He's a great break from the Robert Crais and T Jefferson Parker and John Sandford that I've been reading.

"James, we use saltwater when offshore. Otherwise we use a freshwater flush. The design is such that whatever is in the line sits between the top of the holding tank and the joker valve. Over time, stuff builds up. Amazed at what a human can produce!…"
