I read all the time! I mean ALL the time. (Even while at work about 75% of my time I have nothing to do so I always have a book with me or I'm messing around online! Lol!). If it were illegal I'm sure I'd be in the center of a Reader's Intervention and off to Bookaholics Rehab long before now! By this time next week I'll most likely have finished a trilogy and two standalone. I've read about 88 books this year so far. I'm currently halfway through "Forty Acres" by Dwayne Alexander Smith and I just started the novella "Winterbound" by Margery Williams Bianco, who, as you know, also wrote "The Velveteen Rabbit". My reading tastes are very eclectic but I'm mostly drawn to YA paranormal and light-hearted reads with an adult book tossed in if I'm intrigued by the premise. I plan on reading "The Strain" trilogy by Guillermo del Toro and Chuck Hogan soon, too.

Happy Reading!

Favorite book would be a tough one. I like Dr Seuss's, "Cat In The Hat" a lot, tho. No, really! I wouldn't mind being an author of children's books of such caliber that they still bring me a smile in my adult years, when thinking of them.


Good fiction books that I've read very recently, include Steinbeck's "Winter of Our Discontent"; I try to hit up a classic author once in awhile, and that one was pretty good I thought, and as far as contemporary literature, Dan Brown's "Angels and Demons", is one I liked. Oh, and "Midnight In The Garden of Good and Evil", by John Berendt, I just finished that one. It's a true story actually (with some names and such changed, even though anybody in Savannah, GA, probably knows who's names were changed, heh), but was told so well, it was like reading a "page turner" novel, as it was hard to put down!
