    I read three authors relatively exclusively.

    Jim Butcher
    - Dresden Files: Humorous fantasy based
    - Codex Alera series: Much harder fantasy, maybe best books I ever read

    Lee Childs
    - Jack Reacher series: Huge series about an ex-Army MP who is basically just a badass

    Janet Evonovich
    - Stephanie Plum series: Ok I admit, these are probably more traditionally "chick books" but they are hilarious, about a female bounty hunter in New Jersey. You may recall "One for the Money" from a few months back, they made her first book into a movie. Like all movies did not really do it justice.

    Intensity is the title? Kuhns is the author I take it.

    I'm reading "Big Bets" - it is the history of how the electric utilities came to be and how that one invention did more to change society than anything in the past 200 years. It primarily focuses on the south east, but the whole electric and gas utility industry is so intertwined, it covers a lot of the midwest and eastern seaboard.

    I started listening to books last summer.The Jack Reacher series is pretty good.The Repairman Jack series is great.He's a private dick who ends up in cases involving monsters and the paranormal.Joe McKinney does very good end of the world zombie books.I just finished with a book called "The association" by Bentley Little.Very good story about a couple who move into a gated community only to find out the the home owners association is run by insane people.It gets really wild.The enemy is a great book by Charlie Higson.Deals with children living in london after a plague has turned adults into cannibals."The Five" by Robert McCammon is a pretty good book about a rock band being stalked by a sniper.

    Happy reading.

    Matt Reilly - Pretty sure his Aussie character is based on our own esteemed Aussie moderator

    Brad Thor

    W.E.B. Griffin

    Clive Cussler. Though not a fan of the latest books now that his son is helping him write.

    Reilleys books are good , no X shaped scars on these eyes , sorry

    but my place in south Oz could be his home in the outback

    old mines, airstrip, emu's getting in the way of traffic

    and maybe 10 blades of grass per acre

    just none of the fancy doo dad's or the armoury he has
