Susan Neace

Georgette Heyer, Tammora Pierce, Sharon Shinn, you, Patricia Briggs, Dorothy Sayers top my list of read and reread. any time a new one of the current writers come out with a new one I read it and then go back again through the old ones

Hank Phillippi Ryan

Oh, yes, of course I binge read! ANd I am, well, happy I guess, to say I have never read Barbara Pym, so lookout, here I come.

COmpletely on the other side of the reading glass, I love legal thrillers...and am now reading David Ellis. I thought I had discovered him, but I--was wrong.

ANd bingeing--so funny! Jonathan and I are binge-watching Foyle's War. Aren't we wild and crazy??

Deborah Adams

Mary Stewart!


Angela Thirkell. I go through her Barchester novels at least once a year.

And the mystery connection to Pym is that Hazel Holt (the Mrs. Mallory cozies) was her close friend and literary advisor.

Charlaine Harris

I'm ashamed to say I haven't read Angela Thirkell, and now I'll have to add her to my list. Mary Stewart! I haven't read her in ages. I loved "Nine Coaches Waiting" with a passion. And Georgette Heyer is one of my binges, too, Susan. Hank, the only thing I've binge-watched was "Justified," and it was worth it.

Kathy Lynn Emerson

Not exactly binge reading, but I have been slowly working my way through all of Charlotte MacLeod's wonderful humorous mysteries since I discovered they were available as ebooks. That was about a year and a half ago. They still make me laugh.


Charlaine Harris

I love to remember Charlotte, and I haven't read her wonderful books in way too long. Thanks for the reminder, Kathy.

Elaine Viets

Agatha Christie. You. And I love legal thrillers. Guilty pleasure is Michael Palmer's medical thrillers.


Oh, I *adore* Barabara Pym. I'm glad I'm not living in her world, but I love it. And Angela Thirkell - delicious. I'd add Dorothy Whipple too and I think I love her writing best of all.

Ellie Enos

I am rereading all of JD Robb in order. I only discovered her books two years ago when our book club read Innocent in Death. I like to check out books that you recommend and start with the first one in the series. My daughter and I read all the Sookie books after she discovered True Blood.

Laura Brennan

I love to binge-read from the Golden Age: Ngaio Marsh, Ellery Queen, Dorothy Sayers... But I also find myself binge-reading on one particular nonfiction topic at a time -- the Psychology of Happiness being the most recent. It's fascinating to see how each person's work influences the others. Plus I'm hoping more of it sticks this way!


Angela Thirkell and Dorothy Whipple are new to me. So glad to hear good recommendations. Susan mentioned Sharon Shinn, who is also new to me, at least until about thirty minutes ago when I saw a couple of her books at the bookstore. I have some catching up to do!

Kelly Saderholm

I'm binging on Lawrence Block's "Burglar" series, looking forward to reading his newest Bernie Rhodenbarr release.

Charlaine Harris

Dorothy Whipple. Another name to add. Sharon Shinn is great. I've binged on Laurell K Hamilton's Anita Blake books, too, and Lawrence Blocks' HIT MAN books. Love those! What a lot of good ideas for revisiting old friends and making new ones.


Dick Francis! Although I have recently discovered the Phryne Fisher murder mysteries (the excellent Australian TV series tipped me off) and I have been devouring them.

Dana Cameron

Dorothy Sayers. And now I have a whole flock of new writers to read!
