The Da Vinci Code came out in paperback over the weekend and I picked up a copy at a bookstore in Palm Springs. I was looking for a good book, one that I would actually finish reading, and that's exactly what I got. It was as if I devoured the book. I finished it last night, all 480+ pages of it. It wasn't the best book I've ever read, but it was a real page turner, and in this day and age, when it's hard to focus your attention on anything for more than a couple minutes, a page turner is a rare treat. So I ask you: do you have any page turners to recommend? Spare me the literary epics because I won't finish them. No War and Peace or Absalom, Absalom. For now, I'm looking for fun, entertaining and engrossing.
