Does anyone out there have suggestions for books that are good to read out loud? My husband and I read out loud to each other every night before we go to sleep. We have been doing this for about 13 years now and have finally run out of new titles, new authors.
We have read most of Upton Sinclair's Lanny Budd books. We have read and reread John D. MacDonald's Travis McGee series, books by Robert B. Parker, Lawrence Shames, Joseph Wambaugh, Peter Lovesey, Edna Buchanan, Carl Hiassen, Elmore Leonard, Willeford,Tony Hillerman, Elliot Roosevelt, John Burdette, and Robert Harris. This is a very incomplete list, but it will give you some idea. A combination of history, mystery and suspense. Lots of good dialogue! Engaging characters or good author's voice. Clear writing style. A good sense of humor. Yes, we want it all!
We realize our tastes are very eclectic and idiosyncratic, but we will appreciate any suggestions. We thank you in advance.
