Hey all,

I read Jack and Jill by Patterson and really enjoyed it. What are his BEST books and does anyone have any deals out?

I have read just about every book he has written.  My favorite is the Alex Cross series.  Once I got through the first Women's Murder Club book I really started enjoying those also; I just didn't like the first one as much as I liked the rest of the series.  He is one of my favorite authors and I would read any book that he has written. 

I have several on my bookshelf and will do 2 for 1 on hardcovers and 3 for 1 on paperbacks.

Kiss the Girls is my favorite but it is #2 in the series, I would recommend reading the Alex Cross series in order, starting with Along Came a Spider.

I love the Alex Cross series.  The only book I have on my shelf is the book Cross and that's in hardback.  I like Cat & Mouse the best, but it's a followup to Along Came a Spider.  That's the only one I haven't read in this series.

I have When the Wind Blows and Cat and Mouse on my shelf and I will do a 2 for 1 on them if you want them. I haven't read them myself. They are my mother's books and she really liked them.

I began reading James Patterson's books in February of this year and am currently on my 27th one! I've read all of the Maximum Ride books, 1-6 of the Women's Murder Club series and the majority of his stand-alone novels. I've just began the Alex Cross series and I can say that almost anything you pick up by James Patterson is going to be a pleaser. I'm a male reader and some of my favorites are his "love stories". I absolutely loved "Suzanne's Diary For Nicholas" and "Sam's Letters To Jennifer". Paperbackswap has been an amazing place to build my collection. I own nearly all of his books and I started out with almost all of them in paperback that I got from here.  I now have swapped most of them off for hardcovers. Once I get a copy in hardcover, I post the paperback to my bookshelf here to swap again. The hardcovers are now part of my 'keeper collection'.

I currently have the following list of 17 James Patterson books on my shelf and will offer a 2 for 1 deal through Sunday, August 10th.

Trust me, you just can't go wrong with a James Patterson book!!

The Jester

1st To Die

Suzanne's Diary For Nicholas

Beach Road



The Midnight Club

Cradle And All

Hide & Seek

Jack & Jill

Roses Are Red

The Beach House

Four Blind Mice

The Lake House

Mary, Mary


Lifeguard (hardcover, no dustjacket)
