I am definitely a book worm. I read more than most people I know. I usually have a book at work, and a couple at home. All going at the same time, yes. Nope, I hardly ever mix up the stories and characters. It might take me a few seconds to remember which is which, but not for long. I think I'd like to join a book club; that could be totally up my alley!
Some of my favorite authors are: Jodi Picoult, Alice Sebold, Nora Roberts, Emily Giffin, Nicholas Sparks ...
I can read almost anything and I like non-fiction too. One of the best non-fiction books I've read is The Glass Castle by Jeannette Walls. What a wonderful read that was. You should pick it up if you need a summer reading book.
I read 3 of Alice Sebold's books (actually I think she only has 3 so far) - The Lovely Bones (which we saw later made into a movie) and The Almost Moon (which I could not put down) and her book, Lucky, which was non-fiction and a true story of her real-life rape and the aftermath.
There aren't many Jodi Picoult books I haven't read -- I want to get them all read.. That's my goal. And Nicholas Sparks? Oh boy.. Almost read all of those too.
I would take reading over watching TV any given day. I enjoy it and it relaxes me. Right up there with writing.
Here is what I'm actually reading right now:
Impossible: Danielle Steel
Amazing Grace: Danielle Steel
Facets: Barbara Delinsky
(and if you want, you can count my book To know, Love and Serve God by Father Oscar Lukefahr) -- that's more of an assignment I gave myself. There is a quiz at the end of each chapter. I really enjoy it.
Have you any great recommendations for reading? Any authors that I have to check out?
