Do you love to read? I sure do...one of my best memories is going to our small town library once a week growing up and spending at least an hour in the library, looking at books, looking for books and the smell. Something about a library that I just love. NOwadays I read on my Kindle Fire...I've been a concert since the first Kindle came out...I've converted quite a few over too. Saving trees I like to say not to mention the instant gratification of ordering a book and having it on your reader 3 secs later...joy sweet joy it is LOL!
I like most books although super violent ones will put me off. I love Ken Follett's Century Series and have read them all, but couldn't finish his "Pillars of Earth"...too violent and I have a very visual imagination and nightmares so bad that when I got halfway through I decided I couldn't do it. I never NOT finish many books but I can count that one and Moby Dick as two of them LOL! I read 2-3 books at a time...usually a more serious or biography and a less serious book or not as serious ;) So yes I read romance, mysteries, some sci-fi, biographies, etc....most interest me and I like a book with MEAT. I don't mind a fluff read now and again but I want a very intriguing story, something that is smart and makes me think and want to turn the page. "Fifty Shades of Grey"...yeah I started it, didn't care for the writing or the matierial and I didn't finish it LOL...I need a bit of a story to keep me reading. I understand the APPEAL of it, just wasn't for me.
BUT that is the beauty of books...you can pick and choose what appeals to YOU and what you enjoy. To me a good book is like the best kind of movie you can find...a good book makes you excited to go back to it and continue the story...a page turner is the best gift I can receive.
So I started a cyber book club a few years ago called BookEndz. In my other neighborhoods I lived in I started book clubs but here in VA I never found the right mix of women so decided to go cyber...that way anyone could join in or skip the book if you chose. I try to choose books that make you think, pull you in and have a good meaty story. So if you need book selections or like to read with a group, everyone is welcome to join it HERE!
Below is our current book club read for August...its extremely good, has a great story, a great cast of characters and it makes YOU THINK and FEEL...so if you read it, let me know what you think! I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
Need more recommendations...you can follow me on Goodreads as well (its like facebook for books, reviews, descriptions and everything...I love it)...I try to keep my site up with all the books I've read, want to read or have ordered.
