What I am reading….

 

06/19/2017 – Oh, how I love the Orange County Library System.  – I thought that my library card had expired.  It hadn’t.  Still the woman that helped me was thoughtful and made me verfiy that my pin number still worked. Now, my ability to have library books delivered has returned.

I picked up four graphic novels

CardBoard by Dough TenNapel

The Battle of Blood and Ink by Jared Axelrod & Steve Walker

Dresden Files – Storm Front – Vol. 1 & Vol. 2 – by Jim Butcher Adapted by Mark Powers.

10/5/2013 – Just finished Dance of Dragons by George R.R. Martin.  Now I am in search of a new book.  There are several on the Kindle that I have been meaning to read about publishing.  I really want the next book to come out.  But I should be economically and start digging into the stash I have here at the house and on the Kindle.

08/25/2012 – School has started again.  I have been reading the Hunger Games Trilogy in preparation for teaching the first novel this fall.  One one more novel in the series to go and I have to say that I am so very delighted that it is nothing like the Twilight series.  I never finished reading that one.  Bella annoyed me too much.  Currently, I am reading Danse Macbre by L.K. Hamilton.

No update to the Kindle list, a new group on Facebook ~ Kindle Author –  had beefed up my supply of books.

06/10/2012 – I am really behind on both lesson plans and writing reviews, but I hope to catch up on both in the coming month.  Last Month, I purchased a Kindle Fire, which has only increased my addiction to e-books.  Currently, I am re-reading Bloody Bones by L.K. Hamilton.

4/15/2012 – Finished two more books on the reading list and proceeded to add fifteen  more.  I think I am seriously addicted to the Kindle App on my phone.  I still love the feel of book; giving them up entirely is out of the question.  Still the discount in price of the Kindle books and it’s portability are extremely appealing.

I am participating in Good Reads 2012 Reading Challenge.  According to it, I am 19 books behind having only read 11 books so far this year.

3/27/2012 – Finished the The Hero Always Wins… – I really wish that the second novel was out, so I could find out what is going to happen next.  The Kindle list has diminished slightly.  I have two more books on the review request list to read then it is back to tackling the list.

03/22/2012 – Still reading The Hero Always Wins... The Kindle list hasn’t gotten any shorter.. I am going to try and be good by not adding anymore to my list until I have gotten thru more of the current list.

03/11/2012 – Finished Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter.  If you haven’t read it already or think that the whole vampire is over done, you need to pick up this book and read it.  Seriously, go and get the book and read it.

Just started reading the Hero Always Wins by Robert Eaton and I am hooked.  Happy to say that the book will be coming to bed with me, tonight.

02/27/2012 – Finished the last of the novels for the Jane Austen Blog Fest.  I didn’t make my goal, but I will finish the reviews as I promised. I have finished a couple more of books and started Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter.  The move seems to have zapped some of my brain cells so I am reading slower than usual. Currently, I am only reading a chapter a day.

My new bed is covered in books. I may be single, but I am not sleeping alone.

  1. One book I’ve read recently has stayed with me quite vividly, and I’m not really even sure why. It spoke to something in my psyche that must be long buried. It’s “The Land Of Women” by Regina McBride. “Emily White, The New York Times Book Review, writes “Regina McBride writes in a shimmering and hypnotic prose style.” Amazon has it on Kindle; believe it or not I picked up my copy at Goodwill for practically nothing. If you like strong women and their journeys to self-discovery, this should be a good read for you! I would happily mail you my copy, but unfortunately I gave it to my son’s girlfriend a few weeks ago. Hope you can find it locally. Best…Jo

  2. Not sure if you’re a big Salmon Rushdie fan, but I recently read both “Shalimar the Clown” and the “Enchantress of Florence” and they we truly engrossing texts (and works, I suspect, that will reward close examination). Another great book that I enjoyed last year (especially for its over geekiness at times and its setting) was Junot Diaz’s “the Brief Wondrous life of Oscar Wao”–very Marquez-ian at times (in the family flashbacks), but also quite original of a character (perhaps sharing kinship with Kennedy’s Ignatius J. Reily)
