Week 26 - Book 27

Book A Week in 2009: Week 26 - Book 27

Today is the start of Week 26 in the quest to read 52 books in 52 weeks and should have you starting book # 27. Which means -- drumroll, please. We are halfway through the year and halfway towards our goal of reading 52 books for the year.

Since it is summertime, are you in for a bit of light reading or something classical. There are so many choices out there.

Writer Face Off

There are writers that some people either love or dislike. No happy in between. I'm thinking of making this a monthly feature, so let me know what you think. Also, any suggestions for authors you'd like to see compared, let me know.

This month I am pitting two writers against each other and trying to determine what the hoopla is all about,. Join me in a writer face off between

James Patterson and Stephen King

I've only read one book by James Patterson which was 1st to Die. I'm not sure it really represented his work, so going to give him another chance. The only book I've read by Stephen King is his nonfiction "On Writing." I've recently picked up "Duma Key" and will be reading it within the next week or so. But for a face off to be truly genuine, it requires several samples from each author. I'm in the midst of picking out other books to read by James Patterson. Books suggested so far are "Along Came A Spider," "When the Wind Blows," and "The Lake House." (Thanks - Nise) Any others you would suggest?

What books would you suggest that best represents Stephen King?
