The Eagle Eye has a guilty pleasure. She likes to read vampire romance books. She recently read a book called "BITE" written by Heather Litteral. Geocaching was mentioned several times in the book. The main characters sister, who apparently dies, loved to geocache and the book mentions it several times, even going in to detail on how it works. I was wondering if anyone else has seen any books with geocaching mentioned in them?
As much as I love geocaching I'm not sure I'm ready for a vampire romance, so I will probably never read this book! :p But maybe if there is another out there, a little tamer, I might could read it.:cool:

I'm not much of a "reader" as you call it. I could definitely see potential in a murder-mystery book that is centered around geocaching!

Did you ever find any good reads? I've seen some, both kids and adults, on amazon but not sure if they are any good. This one is new and written by a geocacher. I got a laugh at the disclaimer/title page in the "read inside feature" on amazon. http://www.amazon.com/Cached-Out-Cliff-Knowles-Mystery/dp/1479325759/ref=wl_it_dp_o_pC_nS_nC?ie=UTF8&colid=3PDOO167BPCIJ&coliid=I16747W850C885

I just now read the Disclaimer/title page that is funny! They must know us geocachers well!

We learned about geocaching from a boxcar childrens book my son was reading. We looked it up and got our first cache after church (Kits- GC1W89R) and were hooked.

The Box That Watch Found (The Boxcar Children Mysteries #113)
Another is Stephen Booth's book 'The Dead Place

Hello Arkansans,
I'm the author of Cached Out, and, of course, a geocacher. I see you have a thread mentioning it so I thought I would log in in order to let you know that a discount is available to geocachers on the paperback. To get this you have to buy from the publisher, CreateSpace, not from Amazon. Here's the link: Cached Out (https://www.createspace.com/3997797). The discount code is NP4N4WYP and will get you 10% off. Please don't distribute that outside the geocaching community. I'm afraid I have no way to give a discount on the Kindle version. The paperback, by the way, is a full-size 6"x9" "trade" paperback, not the smaller 4x6 pocket-sized paperback you may be thinking of.

Sales and reviews have been good and it is obvious a lot of them have been from the geocaching community, so I want to thank those of you on this thread who have mentioned it. I plan to attend the 2nd International EarthCache Mega Event in St. George, Utah and will be signing (and selling) copies there in September. Also, this weekend it will be available at the Texas Challenge in Port Aransas. I won't be there, and the discount isn't available there, but you'll save on sales tax and shipping and can check out the book first.

Thanks again for the kind words.

Thanks, The Rat, for visiting us and for the geocaching discount on your book. Can't wait to tell L2C1 about this and get the book ordered. I am thinking we will enjoy it. Would you consider donating a signed copy to Ark-Geo as a door prize for our Annual Meeting? It would help you get the word out and would make a GREAT prize for any of the many geocachers in attendance. Yes or no - either way, thanks again for stopping by and good luck on the sales of your book.

Thanks again to all who bought my book Cached Out and for the kind words. I was at the Mega event in Utah where the book was warmly received. I regret to say I can no longer offer the paperback discount, but at least for now Amazon is selling it at a discount. The Kindle is still available, of course. Also I wanted let you know that there is a sequel call Fatal Dose that was just published. Cliff Knowles, the main character, is still geocaching and there is a good geocaching scene in it, but the book is not themed on geocaching the way Cached Out is. Fatal Dose is available from Amazon in Kindle format and from the print publisher, CreateSpace, in paperback. The links are on my page: http://cliffknowles.ackgame.com/.
