I like Tom Clancy and The Cardinal of the Kremlin is one of my favorites. Nice spy story and a fast read.

The only authors I have any experience with are Elizabeth Peters and Patricia Cornwell.

Peters is good and has written several series, the best being the Egyptian archaeologist couple who solve crimes and have adventures, both ancient and modern. Children of the Storm may be from that series (can't remember all the titles), but if so is one of the later books. Best to begin at the beginning.

I liked Cornwell's early series with the forensic pathologist, but think her later books deteriorated.

Give them to the hospital.

I liked A Time To Kill, but the rest I would give away. Of course, it entirely depends on what you are into. A lot of them seem to be thrillers and espionage type books. If you enjoy that, then you should keep them.

You should keep A Time to Kill and Road to Gandolfo. My husband has urged me repeatedly (ok, nagged and nagged at me :) ) to read Gandolfo. He claims it is hysterically funny. I do plan to pull it out of the TBR Warehouse someday and read it. I'm sure he's right.

I also like Cornwell and Peters but haven't read either of those, so you may want to hang onto them just in case.

To the hospital, for sure.

A few months ago I had a clearout and gave three boxes full of books - paperbacks and hardbacks, some first editions - to a charity shop. Most of them had never been read. I never had the room and was never likely to read them.

I would keep the Tom Clancy book. He is a good writer of the techno-thriller genre, heck, he practically invented it. Never heard of the other books on that list.

Thanks, I appreciate all of your opinions.:) They were given to me and I think I have read one in the whole lot.

I must admit I haven't read any of those books. If the synopsis doesn't grab your curiosity then give them to the hospital charity shop.

Keep Road to Gandolfo by Ludlum. It's very funny and quite an atypical Ludlum. A Time to Kill is also pretty good.
