Its a phact more people read in winter. I phind this to be true for me Im still reading the Redwall series by Brian Jacques. Im about to begin book 8. There is about 20 sumthing books so Im half way there
I haven't stopped dtb I couldn't tell you how many I have read .. but it is WELLLLL over 500 .. I lost count ... usually anything fantastical .. sometimes serious but I try and stay away from that ... right now I am reading the untouchable series
Ohh I read those ones too ... I will have to go through and look .. there are a few great series .. the Heku series by T M Nielson is great btw .. Caged by amber lynn nantuch Accidentally by MIMI jean Pamtillott
I might read the Elm creek quilts series by Jennifer Chiaverini next.I have the first few books. I have almost all of the Redwall series just need to order a few more books. Im a big Jane Austen fan as well so somewhere down the line I want to re-read those books too. what I really need is to build another room on for a library
I have a kindle but dont use it much. gotta get Sibs to put plants Vs zombies 2 on it haha There id just something about holding the book in my hands to read..Im just old fashion like that Sheri that sucks hope they pick a better book next time.
Im done with book 8 in the Redwall series, waiting for book 9 to get here.
Christy, I'd much rather have a real book too. I finished that book and still don't like it.
Books are nice but if you read a lot it pays to own a Kindle or Nook as we do only because it saves lots of space and is much more convenient if you want to look back on something you read some time back. It's also nice to have when you are at an office waiting for the Doctor or whom ever and want to read,it carries much better then a book in yer pockie book...girls . It works very well for me to use for reference material. And it has many other Apps. that are very useful. My two cents!! Most of the books I read are to deal with documentaries or politics and human interest. DR Ben Carson has some very interesting books. I hate fiction or love stories so that leaves me out of most book reading circles. Guess I'm a boring old fart!!
I don't like love stories either and would much rather read something true. Being in a book club I have to go with the flow and sometimes it's hard but sometimes it's not too bad. I enjoy hearing others thoughts on books because it amazes me some of the things people can take away from a fiction book. There is a 98 year old lady in one of my clubs and her memory is sharp as a tack. She can tell us what was happening in the world during the time period that the book is set in. We also have a lady from Peru and one from Mexico and their outlook is so different from mine. We read a book about slavery and they couldn't believe some of the stuff that went on before LBJ and civil rights. It's interesting. jersey, when you and Ruth visit we'll talk about books.

Deal We can bring our nooks. There are a few books on them. I'm wondering have you ever read the book called "The Shack"? One of the few fictions I found amazing. Have you read David and Goliath by Malcolm Gladwell?
JC Reading documentaries don't make ya a boring old fart Ive read up on Ann Boone then bought the book Under the black flag cause it had her in it haha. And a few other Lady's of History I love most books. fantasy with critters dragons, mystery's Love Marry Higgins Clark, Romance, fictional life types. Like Ann of green gables, The Elm creek quilts series...
I don't like science fiction or fantasy. My book clubs read those type of books sometimes and I read them so I can discuss them but they're not my favorite. I like biographies and sometime autobiographies and civil war stuff but I read whatever the book club members want to read. It broadens my horizons and hopefully not my ass. (couldn't help myself there)
The book I am reading now is Sum it up by Pat Summit My Daughter had recommended that I read it. Pat was the ladies basketball coach at Tennessee for 38 years She holds many records in the ncaa She also co-captained the woman's Olympic team. My daughter was a college basketball player and a ncac player of the year at Fairly Dickinson. So you can get the connection.
I do get the connection and that's way cool. I know who Pat is. I think I'll see if my library has that.
Very inspirational book and that is something I always encouraged my children to read.I gave my daughter a book written by coach Wooden that was very good also. DR Ben Carson has some very good books out there. There was a TV movie about him called Gifted Hands. He is one of the worlds top surgeons. His most recent book is called America the Beautiful. It mainly deals with government today.
I have a book sitting here by me & I really want to read it..however..put a book in my hands & I will be sleepin in no time.. squint It is The Great Controversy..Past..Present..Future..How will it end? I have had this book for a few years now & I have NOT opened it yet. One of these days I will read it!
