What are you reading?

About the only time I get to read is when I'm at work. I average about a book a week. If I spent less time on Facebook I'm sure I'd get more reading in!!

Right now I am reading the Kite Runner. I am only about 50 pages in, but I am enjoying it so far. The book before Kite Runner was Beauty a retelling of Beauty and the Beast by Robin McKinley. I really liked it a lot more than I thought I would. One of my more recent books was The Murder of King Tut, by James Patterson. I really enjoy Patterson's books. The are interesting and fast paced. I also like that they have short chapters. I am really looking forward to his new Alex Cross novel. That was the series that really sucked me in.

I like to keep track of my To Read List on Goodreads.com I go to that website and see what is next on my to read shelf and then go to the library website and put that book and maybe some others on hold. I would LOVE to have the time to go to the library and just browse the shelves for something to read, but, I don't have that kind of time, so I use the libraries online request feature weekly. I love it! When my book is ready, they send me an email and then I go pick it up. Easy peasy! Takes all of 5 minutes!

Have you read any good books lately?? If so, what are they?

Hi Amy! I love to request books from the library, too. A couple of great books I have read lately are The Help by Kathryn Stockett, The Glass Castle by Jeanette Walls, and These is My Words: The Diary of Sarah Agnes Prine by Nancy Turner. I joined a book club to expand my horizons a little bit.

Merry Christmas! (I am not all the way done with my wrapping yet but am getting there! Lucky you to be done!)
