    From coast to coast and around the world, Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum novels continue to make best-selling history each summer. In the 13th book in the series, the stakes are raised even higher as Stephanie Plum finds herself in her most dangerous, hilarious, hottest, chase yet.

    What disappointed you about Lean Mean Thirteen?

    I read this book on a friend's recommendation. The story and characters were fun but the writing was so lazy! Nearly every line ended with "said." I got so tired of "he said" and "she said" that I nearly stopped listening.

    While I found the story fun, I would not recommend the book to anyone and will probably never read another Evanovich book.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Janet Evanovich again?

    Probably not.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The family dinner with "gram's" boyfriend.


    What character would you cut from Lean Mean Thirteen?

    None

    Guaranteed to capture the hearts of everyone who truly loves books, The Bookman's Tale is a former bookseller's sparkling novel and a delightful exploration of one of literature's most tantalizing mysteries with echoes of Shadow of the Wind and A.S. Byatt's Possession.

    What did you love best about The Bookman's Tale?

    Well constructed with interweaving story lines that keep you wanting more. This book deserves more attention than it has received so far.


    What other book might you compare The Bookman's Tale to and why?

    The originality of the story and the intricate story reminded me of The 13th Tale.


    Any additional comments?

    A wonderful combination of mystery, romance and literary history that takes the reader on a wonderful journey. I can not recommend this book strongly enough! A MUST READ!

    President Bill Clinton gives us his views on the challenges facing the United States today and why government matters—presenting his ideas on restoring economic growth, energy, job creation, financial responsibility, resolving the mortgage crisis, and financial responsibility, and offering a plan to get us "back in the future business".
