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?

  1. I love books, and I love non-fiction. Before I had kids I used to spend HOURS in book stores just hanging out.. (Can't do that anymore :-( but maybe someday...)


Hi, thanks for YOUR thoughts on MY thoughts! Happy reading!
