I’d like to thank my good friend, Bekah, for the eloquent blog post title. Not sure what I’d do without her.
I read a lot. If you asked my husband, he might tell you I read all of the time. That would be an exaggeration. I think. I have to stop and make supper, on occasion, ya know. But honestly, I do love to read. So, I thought I’d share what I’ve read recently and/or am now reading. I’m not sure I’ll give a synopsis of every book. But maybe I will if I really like it. And hopefully this will become a regular blog post. We shall see.
First up! I’m in a book club and this month’s book is Running Blind by Lee Child.
The main character is Jack Reacher…there’s a movie out this weekend. I guess he is a character in a lot of the author’s books. I’d never read any but I will say that I enjoyed this one. It is a mystery/thriller and I will probably read some more of his books.
I’ve read all of his books and this one was not my favorite, but it was a quick and entertaining read.
And right now I’m reading Milkweed by the same author. The story takes place during WWII. I’m not very far along but so far it is really good.
Another book that I just started is called The Black Count by Tom Reiss.
This one is non-fiction and is the story of Alexandre Dumas’ father. I’m very excited to get into this book because I absolutely love the stories of The 3 Musketeers and The Man in the Iron Mask. And The Count of Monte Cristo is one of my all time favorite books.
So are there any other avid readers out there? Do you read mostly fiction or non-fiction? I’d love to hear your favorite book from this past year…or month if you’re like me and can’t remember much from two weeks ago:) I’m always excited to find new authors and/or books to read. So please, do share!
