    So I got a Nook Tablet for Christmas and I need book suggestions...

    I'm going to start on The Hunger Games but I also want to know what sort of horse series' there are out there that I've missed...

    What horse fiction do you enjoy?

    I read the Dressage Chronicles on my nook, and I read one of Bev Pettersen's track mysteries on there, too (have another one, just haven't started it). Jane Smiley has a few horse themed adult novels, and some kids ones now too! Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater is supposed to be good.

    The Clan of the Cave Bear - Series. That will fill it up FAST. Also there is a new book out after many years. Read them in order btw.

    Not a series but The Eighty Dollar Champion is a good read.

    If you like fantasy, try Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss. I'm currently 400 pages in, and can't put my Nook down.

    The Oulander series by Diana Gabaldon...seven or eight BIG books, that should do it! Fun, fun read.

    If that is not enough for you, The "Song of ice and fire" series by George RR. Martin is addictive as well!

    Otherwise, in random order:

    - Stephen King's latest book, 11/22/63
    - Barbara Kingsolver The Poisonwood Bible (my favorite) but her other books are fun too.
    - Horse Heaven by Jane Smiley
    - Molok'ai ( I forget the author)
    - The Glass Castle and Half broke horses by Jeannette Walls
    - The Golden Compass trilogy by Philip Pullman (the movie did NOT do it justice at all)
    - The Farseer trilogy by Robin Hobb was fun to read as well, if you like that genre (fantasy)
    Ottbs - The finish line is only the beginning!

    Rita Mae Brown foxhunting series and Mrs. Murphy series. Also Horseplay by Judy Renee Singer made me laugh out loud!!

    If you're interested in the Hunger Games, you might also like the Mortal Instruments and Infernal Devices books by Cassandra Clare. Start with "City of Bones" and "Clockwork Angel." Excellent, fast paced, good characters, well written YA urban fantasy.

    You should also check out the Free Friday's blog too. Every Friday you get a free Nook book. Some are really good and will introduce you to new authors.

    Not to mention the 99 cent books, often classics whose copyright has expired and are now in the public domain.

    I love my Nook!
