Welcome to my favorites list — a continuation of “Novel Ideas,” a book review column I wrote for 18 years.

 

I’ll regularly suggest new books here, presented in a snappy new format.

 

These are the stories I’ll share when you ask, “read anything good lately?”

 

 

These are the books that have captivated me with well-drawn characters and plots that move like runaway trains.

 

Each favorite has a place of honor on my bookshelf, cherished friends I’m happy to suggest.

 

Page On! Enjoy!
