Louisa | 8 comments Hi Everyone
I'm very new to goodreads and I'm looking for groups that fit all my reading passions! Thrillers are a genre i discovered on leaving college and I haven't really looked back! I've read all the biggies and I'm currently reading the Donna Leon series, who I love because I get to visit my favourite city every time I read one of her books.

Welcome Louisa. If you like books set in Italy have you read any of the Montalbano books by Andrea Camilleri?

Louisa | 8 comments No, I haven't read any of his yet. I've been trying to get hold of Rat King by Michael Dibdin. i use amazon very rarely, but I think I'm going to have to start using them more often. I've only recently decided I need to read all the series in order. I'm also trying to get away from the 3 for 2 offers we have in our biggest chain of bookstores over here, I should be choosing more of those I want to read not what the bookseller's marketing department thinks I should read!

So true! So many books and so little time. We should be reading what interests us not what is "supposed" to interest us. As for series, I try to read them in order too. If it is a series that's been around a long time I might skip a book here and there to try to catch up to the more recent books but sometimes the books in the beginning of the series are the best.

Hi Louisa. Welcome to the group. I live in Rome, but I haven't read any of the Donna Leon books. Must remedy that situation very soon! I love the Camilleri books, by the way.
