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.

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.
