In an effort to familiarize myself with the tastes of our patrons and become more useful to them, I have decided to read a book from each of the authors that appears in the top 20 of the NY Times Hardcover Fiction list on the first day of summer- June 21, 2009. I can choose any book that the author has written and I will not have to read a book by any author I have already read. This means I don’t have to read Laurell K. Hamilton, Clive Cussler, Danielle Steele, James Patterson, Stephanie Meyer, Mary Janice Davidson, Elmore Leonard or Alice Hoffman, although I still might ( “Road Dogs” -definitely, “The Host”– maybe, “Matters of the Heart”– I don’t think so!).
