NEW YORK (AP) -- If James Patterson thought it were possible, he'd shake the hand of every U.S. soldier.

For now, he'll let a big bundle of his novels do the talking.

The million-selling author is donating 200,000 copies of his work to the U.S. Armed Forces, continuing a tradition he started in 2006.

Patterson told The Associated Press on Thursday he doesn't think the soldiers get "the appreciation they deserve."

His gift to the military will include "Tick Tock," "The Postcard Killers" and other favorites.

Patterson is among the world's most prolific and popular writers.
