|Hot Hot Hot Danger Danger!|
oooooooooh! Danger Danger is right. I used to go to the library and check out two books every two weeks, one trash and one literature (or semi literature at least). Now I have a virtual library at my fingertips.
I have actually been pretty good and not spent much money on books, but I admit to downloadig a bunch of freebies from Pixel of Ink, Book Basset and Project Gutenberg. Plus my mom and I have a linked account which means whenever either of us buys or downloads something the other one has access to it. This means I won't be downloading Fifty Shades - can't let my mom know I'd read THAT. Or maybe she has to be careful not to order it so I don't know she would read something like that, ha ha.
I have read a lot of classic (or will be classic someday) books these past 10 months:
To Kill a Mockingbird
The Five People You Meet in Heaven
The Pillars of the Earth
And a bunch of fun sometimes mindless freebies, mostly historical romance or mystery romance genres. Plus I still check out books from the library until I exhaust their supply of Johanna Lindsey (mostly the Malory series), Stephanie Plum series and Nero Wolfe novels.
I just started reading Earth Abides by George R Stewart, which was highly recommended by my brother who told me our dad took a class from Stewart when he was at Cal.
So, are you reading anything interesting? Any resolutions to read more in the New Year? I am always looking for new ideas.
