    new to me anyway;) Lyn Cote. I just started a book lastnight and another "can't put it down":) The one I'm reading, I was able to find at the Overdrive/Library2go online for the county library. I read these on my Nook. It's called "Dangerous Game" and about a guy that comes back to his hometown in Wisconsin after 7 years in prison. He doesn't want to come back but he won't abandon his Aunt Elsie, who recently was diagnosed with Parkinsons.

    You can look at a clip of it here, dangerous game.PNG

    Hi Bill, I usually take just my cellphone when I want to go walking for exercise. But I have another camera that I use when I want to really try for some nice photos. It's still an inexpensive, digital. Here it is, I mean one I found on Amazon:

    http://www.amazon.com/Fujifilm-FinePix-Optical-Digital-Camera/dp/B0090NZSM8

    I had a nice, little Kodak that took exception photos, but I had to have one with the option to do manual settings. I haven't tried for a long time now to even learn them. I also use a tripod because I have a tremor. Another trick I learned was to use my timer so I don't mess up when hitting the shutter button. I set the timer and then"step away from the camera" LOL!! I get nice, clear shots that way;)

    That sounds like a book I would like. However, I started a James Patterson a couple of months ago, and I am not even half way through. I am also re reading a book on my Kindle,The Hangman, which I read once already, but found it to be a good read, so I decided to read it again. I don't get a lot of time to read, and when I do, it tends to be magazines and the like. Maybe this summer when there is not a lot on TV, I may do more reading.

    I don't get into anything deeper than the smaller fictions because I read to relax before bed. I realized they were comforting, and uplifting, so I stick with those. I do have many other interests, but notice I haven't been as interested in movies, even the old ones anymore. I used to really be a movie buff, like I knew them all;) I think my interests are just changing, and hopefully to healthy things;) I think James Patterson is top-notch. He does the Alex Cross books right? I think I know of more of his works as well. I enjoyed the movies like Hunt for Red October, The Pelican Brief, all those where the lead character is Jack Ryan, etc. So those types of books, and the movies, I enjoy as well.

    I want to read the one about Capote. I guess there is a movie out, been out awhile now, but I prefer to read the book. To Kill a Mockingbird is my favorite book, and movie of all time. I read somewhere that the little, boy Dil, or Del??, was based on Truman Capote when he was a little boy. Don't know if that is true, but interesting for sure.

    Yes, Patterson does the Alex Cross books. He has a number of fictional heros and heroines. He is one of the most prolific authors of our time, right up there with Stephen King. I read his bio on wiki, apparently he was an advertising executive before he turned his talents to writing.

    Thanks bunches. I have a little canon 1100 elf but I get some out of focus every once in a while. I haven't conquered the technology yet.

    that's my biggest issue @Bill Boggs getting things out of focus. I actually had better luck with my first camera, the Kodak. I'll see if I can find a pic of it. My new one is much heavier, and I don't enjoy taking it on my regular walks, where I could probably get more shots. I always see things I'd like to have a good pic with, better than I can get with my phone, but it's light weight;)

    I just put the next book from Lyn Cote on my "holds" from library2go. I am wizzing through Dangerous Game so fast, I want to have another ready to start, lol;) The next one is in the same town/area of Wisconsin. Lyn actually lives there, that's why her descriptions of the area are so vivid in her books I'm sure:) For being just small novels, I think she is an excellent writer;)

    I wanted to mention that I have looked in other library2go "counties" in both Oregon (my home-State) and California. Some have more of the books/authors. I still use my library in Oregon, even though I have a library card for my county here in CA. There are way, more books by my fave authors in the Oregon county. So if you have a library card from anywhere, you can still check digital books out from there.

    If anyone wants library2go on there Nook, Kindle etc. I can help you with it. It's a little confusing, or was for me at first, but now I can get around the site easily;)

    Thanks for the comeback. Mine is not heavy, I carry it in my shirt pocket or a fanny pack. I think my problem is the automatic focus.
