Dh has decided to start reading instead of watching so much TV.
He has already finished the first book he started, which was No Country For Old Men
. He's now reading a book I recommended called The Oath
by Frank Peretti. He's really enjoying it and reads it on his lunch break at work. When the kids are all quiet in bed at night, I read aloud to him (I LOVE reading out loud and he really enjoys this.) We are enjoying this time together. The other night, the TV was off and it was just he and I chatting til 12:30!
I am looking for recommendations of books that would appeal to him and don't have lots of junky stuff in them. No explicit language. Though his tolerance for foul language is higher than mine, he still doesn't want to read stuff that is full of explicit language. Also, no explicit s*xual or s*nsual stuff. Obviously, he's not looking for romance novels either.
I guess we are looking for good, clean, mystery or suspense. Thrillers are ok. He'd probably enjoy some good historical fiction, but I am not good at picking that stuff out. I was also thinking about Terri Blackstock, but I don't know anything about her. I believe people say she writes stuff about crazy, hypothetical medical situations, right? Are they clean books, though? Oh, maybe suspenseful, political novels would be good.
Any other suggestions?
