Q:  Do you read books by diverse authors or books with diverse characters (such as LGBT, ethnic minorities, religious minorities, etc)? If yes, do you have any book recommendations? Do you visit indie and/or used bookstores? Also, have you ever worked in any?
A: I do. The best book I can recomend with diversity is Dante and Aristotle and the Secrets to the Universe. EPIC read!!! I love any and all bookstores, but have not worked in one. I would though!

  2. wow, I like that passage. I had tried one Patterson, and it was so bad, with so many mistakes about King Tut. I may have to reconsider and try one

    1. James Patterson's books are a mixed bag; some are entertaining, and the rest are duds.

  10. My father in law loves James Patterson - always a great gift idea! Lol! I think diversity is fairly common in the genres I read but I admit some authors are better at including diverse characters than others.

The legendary wizard, Merlin, appears and explains that the throne of Camelot must be determined through TRIAL BY COMBAT. Our heroes pull out all the stops to try and win the tournament, break the witch's hold on King Arthur, and find a way back to the present in this legendary story of Scooby Doo in King Arthur's Court. REVIEW: It was weird starting off with a He-Man lookalike, Thunder the Barabarian), until I realized a character from the film was watching the cartoon in the airplane. Still, it was kind of cool to reminice about two cartoons from my childhood. So many great actors bring the film to life! What a fun story it was too! Although
