Fall Into Reading
Katrina at Callapidder Days has planned some reading fun for all of us. It is a no stress, easy, way to share your reading joy with others. Click on a link above and to go see what you need to do. Join in on the fun.
I am an eclectic, whatever-hits-my-fancy-kind-of-reader. I ALWAYS have at least one book going. I am also a fast reader. If I am really into a book I will read through the night--and then be sorry that the characters are gone the next day!
My reading habits don't lend themselves to much discipline so this is a new experience for me--Actually making a list of books to read. I know all my OCD friends out there can't imagine such a concept, but it is does work. :-) When I get caught up in a series is about the only time I am disciplined enough to know what I'm going to read next. With series I do admit to a few OCD tendencies. I like to read the whole series straight through, from beginning to end. It bothers me if I start a series while the author is still adding books to it. So, sometimes I collect them until I have them all and just read straight through. Can you say, "strange and crazy person."
Anyway--I'm taking the plunge and making a list, checking it twice, and GETTING ORGANIZED! We'll see how this goes! So, given all my strangeness with series, need for some little light reading, desire for some reading that makes me think, enjoyment of a little mystery and action, and recent interest in historical fiction--Here's my very eclectic list. I know I will adjust as I read!
In Search of Eden--Linda Nichols
At the Scent of Water--Linda Nichols
On Every Side--Karen Kingsbury
My Sister's Keeper--Jodi Piccoult
The Collectors--David Baldacci
Exile--David North Patterson
The Boleyn Inheritance--Philippa Gregory
1776--David McCullough--I've been reading this one for quite some time--One book I definitely cannot read fast or in one setting--But very fascinating!
Cedar Cove Series--Debbie McComber
Yes, I know there are seven of them, but they all go on the list--some may get rotated to
the spring list. It's a series, ya'll!
Unknown additional books I know I will discover along the way!
A Woman's Heart--Beth Moore
My current Bible Study--If you have ever done a Beth study you know how much you READ!
