Does anyone remember Levar Burton? He was the host of a famous PBS show that aired on June 6, 1983 called The Reading Rainbow.   On this show; Levar Burton; took you into brief synopses of different books to create interest in reading.  The show included animations to induce even more interest in the books he was showcasing.  Before there was computers, internet, cell phones, and video game consuls; there was reading.  Many people enjoy reading still.  Reading has many advantages.  It increases vocabulary, focus, and imagination.  It also improves problem solving, and it can ward off dementia and delirium. For the next few paragraphs I will attempt to do what Levar Burton did on Reading Rainbow, and give you a brief synopses of three books which are fan favorites here at Harmony Social Adult Day Care.

Honeymoon by James Patterson

The honeymoon is over–now the murders can begin. America’s #1 thriller writer returns with his sexiest, scariest novel ever. Hotter than The Beach House and scarier than Kiss the Girls, James Patterson’s explosive new thriller introduces a bride who is beautiful, talented, devoted–and deadly.

When a young investment banker dies of baffling causes, FBI agent John O’Hara immediately suspects the only witness, the banker’s alluring and mysterious fiancee

Nora Sinclair is a beautiful decorator who expects the best, and will do anything to get it. Agent O’Hara keeps closing in, but the stronger his case, the less he knows whether he’s pursuing justice or his own fatal obsession.

In a novel so compelling it reads like a collaboration with Alfred Hitchcock, James Patterson unveils surprise after surprise that will keep readers guessing until the last deadly kiss.

When the wind blows by James Patterson

Frannie O’Neill is a young and talented veterinarian living in Colorado. Plagued by the mysterious murder of her husband, David, a local doctor, Frannie throws herself into her work. It is not long before another bizarre murder occurs and Kit Harrison, a troubled and unconventional FBI agent, arrives on her doorstep.

Late one night, near the woods of her animal hospital, Frannie stumbles upon a strange, astonishing phenomenon that will change the course of her life forever….

Her name is Max.

With breathtaking energy, eleven-year-old Max leads Frannie and Kit to uncover one of the most diabolical and inhuman plots of modern science. When the Wind Blows is as unique a story as has ever been told, filled with suspense and passion. This is by far James Patterson’s best book to date.

Catcher in the rye JD Salinger

This is one of the most remarkable books published in years. It is the story of sixteen year old Holden Caulfield, who wants desperately to find himself, but who goes underground in New York for forty eight hours when he is overwhelmed by the perplexing circumstances of his life. Read the first page and you will not be able to stop until you have completed this wild and magic adventure with him.
