Michael Thanks for being my Goodreads friend, although since I've read ALL of your books, I feel like we're already friends. "Dance of the Bones" is next up on my Kindle. My reading genre of choice has always been mysteries and thrillers and I hardly ever get into sci-fi, but I started to see movie ads for the new Matt Damon movie, "The Martian" and it looked really good. I'm one of those people who always insist that the book is better than the movie. So I got "The Martian" by Andy Weir and I can't put it down. I highly recommend it to everyone who wants to read a "by the seat of your pants" book with just the right amount of humor.


Christine Hatfield Thanks for being my friend
