What are YOU reading??

Hi and welcome, fellow bookworms.  So, what are you reading today?  Let us know what book you are reading in the comments below.


Book or E-reader?

Before I married, I had an extensive book collection in my bookcases. But once I got married, and started raising our children, finding time to read seemed impossible. What time I could find was, while waiting for the bus to bring back our oldest daughter from a track meet. Or, while waiting to pick up our youngest daughter from band practice. Our middle daughter was in AAU Basketball, so there was a bit of downtime between games; I could read a few chapters. Personally, it wasn’t as much time as I would’ve liked. Eventually, I read less and less.

I still missed it. But I found it very difficult to get into a book. And that wasn’t me. I had lost that feeling of getting so into a book, that before you knew it, the sun was coming up. Now, that’s a good book!!!

Then my husband bought a Kindle Fire HD 8 for me, one year for our anniversary, and I haven’t put it down since. My passion for reading was back!

What Kind of Books Do You Like?

I’ve always been an avid book reader. I tend to lean more towards mystery, mystery/romance, thrillers, and the occasional love story, even true story. I like self-help books if I feel there is something I can learn. Although I am open, occasionally to a different genre, as long as I can get lost in the book, it’s got me hook, line, and sinker.


Or Do You Like Audiobooks??

Listening to audiobooks is still very new to me, but I have listened to a self-help book called “The 5 Second Rule” by Mel Robbins.  I think this would be the only kind of book I’d listen to.  Self-help, personal growth, motivational, etc.  Especially the motivational audiobooks, for when I’m working out!!



Do You Have Favorite Authors?

Lately, I’ve been enjoying reading a book series. I love the storylines and characters that can be in a series of books. Authors like Karen Rose, Melinda Leigh, T.R. Ragan, and Christopher Greyson are just a few of my favorites.

I also enjoy reading James Patterson, Stephen King, Andrew E. Kaufman, and Harlan Coben. Again, to name just a few authors that I enjoy reading.


Any Books You’d Like to Suggest?

Have you found an interesting read?? A book you can’t put down? Or maybe it’s a book that made you go, “hmmm.” What about a book that made you laugh out loud??

Please, share your book suggestions below in the comments!


Please, Stop by Often!

I hope you stop by often. We can share our passion for reading!

Maybe you can leave a comment, suggestion, even a book review! I’d love to hear from you!!


Are You Looking to Buy a Reader?

I love my Kindle Reader.  You can do so much more with a reader, besides reading your favorite books:

  • Subscribe to magazines, that are downloaded automatically to my reader
  • Browse the internet
  • WatchTV show or Movies
  • Listen to your favorite music and/or audiobooks
  • Social media such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc.
  • Games: crossword, puzzles, simulation, tons of games.
  • You can download many different apps
  • And much more!


As you get older, it is harder to have heroes, but it is sort of necessary.
― Ernest Hemingway

  2. I’m also an avid reader. Right now I’m reading a Lee Child book. I like mostly mysteries and thrillers with an occasional non-fiction. I read both paper and ebooks. Though ebooks are the way of the future (or so it seems) I still love my paper books.

    • Welcome Donna! Oh yes, tis the way of the future. And I’m ready! LOL

      I too enjoy Lee Child’s. Have you seen the Jack Reacher movie? I was surprised that I liked it.

  3. I have always been a fan of science fiction. Harry Potter, Hunger Games, Divergent, etc. are my all time favorites. I have always bought the real book over e-books. I prefer the feel of the real book. Just my preference.

    Reply
    • I’ve read both the Hunger Games and Divergent series. Both were great books, Patrick!
      Many people feel like you do, about liking the feel of a book in there hands.

  5. Hey Laura, I was never much of a reader until the internet came along. I read and research everyday now. I like to read on the tablets as opposed to having the real book. But I could read either way. I love to read mostly non-fiction because I am always looking to learn something.

  6. I am a bookworm at heart and love to read. I am finding that it is a lot harder to find time to read when you have a baby as you get more tired, distracted and can’t really get into a book. I used to be one of those people that would be “one more page” or “one more chapter” and then I would blink and it would be 3am haha. Some days I would finish a whole book and not know where the time went. Nowadays I still enjoy reading but it is so much harder to concentrate when you have a million other things on your mind.

    I am more into romance, mysteries and lately non fiction(personal development)books. I love books by Nora Roberts and her alter ego (J.D. Robb), Catherine Coulter, James Patterson and Dorothy Garlock to name a few.

    Thanks for sharing your post and I look forward to reading more.

    • Oh, Olena, I remember where you are with a little one. Honestly, enjoy the little one, while little. They grow so quickly!

      And you sound like me, when it comes to getting lost in a book. I absolutely love books like that!!

  7. I enjoy reading books. I use to have many paperbacks but I had to trade those in for e-books due to lack of space. I have both Kobo and Kindle applications. I love science-fiction, fantasy and historical fiction. I can really get lost in those. I am still open to reading other types of novels if they have a good plotline. Right now I listen to recorded books by Melissa Marr.

    • Whats not to enjoy, right???  I think I still have a few paperbacks from when I was 13.  Remember the Harliquinn Romance novels?  LOL

      I just listened to my first book Monday—jury is still out on that one.  I’ll let’cha know.

  8. Hey Laura:

    I like your new page. I’m a bookworm through and through. I love books. I love writing.

    I’m currently reading “THE BOOK OF LOST FRAGRANCES” by M. J. Rose (a suspense novel that’s proving to be intriguing), as well as “YES, AND” by Kelly Leonard and Tom Yorton and “SWITCH: How to Change Things When Change is Hard” by Chip and Dan Heath (two personal development books that are partly for research but mostly for satisfying assorted curiosities).

    My reading tends to go like that — two nonfiction things, one fiction.

    Myself, I prefer the physicality of books. I like turning pages, smelling the books, feeling the weight of them, and being able to find arresting or memorable factoids and thoughts I’ve recently read in a book by feel.

    I can’t explain that last one. It has something to do with how far into the book the fact or story might be found. The search usually involves hefting the book, looking at the edges of the pages between the closed covers and accompanied by a mumbled, “Hmmm…I think it was right about here….” Then you open the book and a lot of the time you can find the thing you’re looking for pretty fast.

    Unfortunately, I also have this bad habit of throwing books I find unsatisfactory against a wall. I’m here to tell ya, this does not work with a Kindle.

    Reply
    • Wow…and welcome from one bookworm to another!!  How you described holding the book and such–my oldest daughter is the same way!!

      And no….any reader wouldn’t hold up so well if you threw it against the wall, lol.  

      When I was younger, I wouldn’t put down a book unless after 100 pages, I just couldn’t get into it.  Usually that worked for me.  NOW It’s like my hard head, that won’t allow me to NOT finish a book.  There has been a few tho that I quit reading, cause the story line just wasn’t there!!

      Thanks for stopping by, do come again, and keep that kindle in your hands!!!
