What I”m Reading Right Now
It will likely come as no shock that I really love to read. Yes, I write and read, hard to believe, I know! There was a while when I was first a stay at home mom that I wasn’t reading, and I felt like something was missing. I had very little in the way of mental stimulation. I mean, really, Sponge Bob doesn’t do much in the way of anything besides turning gray matter into a yellow, sponge-like consistency! So, I began reading again. I guess after having to study so much for so long when I was in college, I’d lost my love of pleasure reading. Oh the humanity!
Now, I have multiple books going at one time. Not long ago, I had 5! My husband was teasing me asking how I could possibly keep them all straight, since I can’t seem to remember what I ate for lunch yesterday, but I do!
What do I like to read? My tastes are wide and varied. I like mysteries, chick lit, drama, and thrillers. I do not do the romance novels. Or the really gory or horror stories. My best friend loves Nora Roberts and I tried one of her ‘In Death’ series books. I couldn’t get past the first page, it was just not my style. I have also been reading some young adult books that my son has been reading, like the ‘Percy Jackson and the Olympian series’, or ‘Harry Potter’. I may even be convinced to read some Jane Austen, although I haven’t read any so far, but that’s not to say I would never read any of her work.
I currently only have two, but that may have to change. We’ll see. I have a stack of them in my room just waiting for me. Patiently. And the next question, no, I do not own an e-reader. I cannot do it yet. I’m not ready to vie up the smell of the ink, the feel of the pages ruffling in my hands, and the weight of it. I know, they’re fabulous, my friends tell me so all the time. But I dont’ have to worry about my battery going dead, or a virus, or losing my books in a crash.
All that being said, I”m going to try to keep this page up with what I”m currently reading. I’d love to hear your thoughts if you’ve read something I have.
