This book looks like a lot of fun, Deb!!

I'm so glad you told us about it :smileywink:.

I'm reading a nonfiction book right now -- SWITCH by Chip and Dan Heath -- and am finding it really interesting.

Here's the B&N link: http://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/switch-chip-heath/1100203647?ean=9780385528757&itm=5&USRI=switch&

A really good book is much like an artichoke. As you peel back each page of the of the book, you get closer and closer to the succulent heart of the story.

Edge of Black by JT Ellison

We here at General Fiction were fortunate enough to have JT visit in the spring of this year as we read and discussed her first Samantha Owens novel A Deeper Darkness  . Well in just a few days novel number two in the Samantha Owens series will be released and it's just as heart stopping as the first. You may have to wait to buy it, but you can read my review right now.

The Black Count by Tom Reiss

[ Edited ]

I know this is nonficiton, but I thought those who are fans of Alexandre Dumas might enjoy it anyway.  The biography examines the life of his father General Alex Dumas, the insipiration for The Count of Monte Cristo.  It was a rather interesting read.  Here is a link to my full review if anyone is interested. http://wordsmithonia.blogspot.com/2012/11/the-black-count-by-tom-reiss.html

Garden Spells  

This book was delightful, if predictable.  I liked the premise of a magical garden and a family of women with special powers.  I will definitely read more by this author.

Thanks for your thoughts Laura, sometimes we all just need a little predictability don't we.

Man Eaters: Compelling New Zombie Thriller Provides Real-World Food for
Thought.

Through a powerful and highly-unexpected plot twist, Linda Kay Silva’s ‘Man Eaters’ causes readers to question
their own beliefs and attitudes to life. Hailed by critics as a positive step towards ending discrimination, Silva’s
latest novel is a must-read for all Zombie fans.

For Immediate Release

Danville, CA – There’s no denying the 2012 has been the year of the Zombie. With sales of zombie literature up
over 500%, the genre has seen its most successful year to date. However, while most zombie thrillers tell fictional
stories with little real-world relevance, a new novel by Linda Kay Silva is giving readers some real food for thought.

‘Man Eaters’ is no ordinary zombie thriller. Fusing its gripping story with a plot twist that will make readers think, it
stands out in its genre as a totally unique work.

Synopsis:

“They prey only on human flesh, and as the virus spreads and the horde of man eaters grows, firefighter, Dallas
Barkley struggles hourly to keep her little band of survivors from the grasp of killers who never tire, never sleep,
and never quit longing to make a meal out of them. As martial law sweeps through the country, Dallas’s new family
must fight off not only voracious man eaters and a deadly military containment procedure, but rogue survivors
who obey no law of the land as they wantonly take from those they perceive as weaker.

But Dallas and her people are far from weak. With a cowgirl named Roper and a medic called Butcher, these three
women must brave the darkest hours of the bloodiest days as they work together to create a safe haven in a world
destroyed by a man made plague ravaging the country and threatening their lives. Only by placing their faith,
loyalty, and love in each other’s hands can they hope to survive.

Only by forging bonds stronger than death can they hope to beat back the hordes of undead.”

As the author explains, her novel is unlike anything ever written before.

“The story has an amazing twist in its plot; something we don’t want to give away here,” says Silva, who has won
many awards for her seventeen published novels.

She continues, “However, what I can say is that this is the perfect novel for the thinking person. It is likely to make
them question their own beliefs and make them more understanding. It’s truly compelling stuff.”

Since its release, the book has garnered a consistent string of rave reviews.

“This book had me from the very first page... I was immediately drawn in to the strange and frightening world that
the Bay Area had become. This book keeps you turning the pages!” says a reviewer on Amazon.

Another reader, Charliz, was equally as impressed. She wrote, “What a great story! If you are a lover of all things
zombie as I am this is a must read. I fell in love with the characters. They are captivating in their journey to try to
find safety, not only from the hordes of zombies but from our own government.”

With so much success in her hands, Silva remains focused on what is really important.

“I want Man Eaters to provide both a captivating story and a thinking/talking point among its readers. Early
feedback suggests that both of these are true, which is very satisfying to hear,” she concludes.
