Books that I am Reading Now

I invariably have library fines at any of the four libraries that I frequent. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t take spending money lightly. (Who does, now-a-days!) But at least the money goes to supporting the libraries.

Here is a list of books that I’m either reading or ones that are stacked on a table, ready for me to read when I have a spare minute:

Fiction:
rebecca

I’ve read this a million times and it’s on my Kindle. I’m only reading parts of it right now to study her outstanding character development and descriptors.

victoria_holt

I’ve read this several times. There are places in the book where the characters’ morals and mine clash, but I like this one because of its intrigue!

Nonfiction:

tony_dungy

I love reading about Tony Dungy and his family. Tony Dungy is a great family man and a devoted Christian husband.

Motivational books that I’m reading to keep me on track with my writing.


Always looking to learn how to improve my writing and my semi-technical knowledge.

Join Me on a Blind Date with a Book

At the library.

The other day, I went to our local library and loaded my little paisley “31” bag full of books to check out.

I was scanning the new arrivals stack when I saw a flier announcing the library’s “Blind Date with a Book.” Intrigued, I went to the circulation desk to ask about it.

The nicest lady, Amanda, helped me out. Her enthusiasm for the program was contagious, especially when she led me over to a circular of books wrapped in brown paper packages with jute ribbon.

Brown paper packages tied up with strings.

So here’s the deal: I get to open my package and read the mystery book. (Mystery, in that I have few clues as to which book it will be.) I read the book and then fill out the bookmark for a chance to win a gift certificate. Yahoo-ee!

The clues that made me grab the book is that it sounds like the book is either out of print, or the author is deceased.

Okay, well here goes…I’m ready to open the mystery book.

Yikes! It’s Stiff by Mary Roach! Okay, well, we’ll see how this goes. It’s not what I’d actually select for myself; Although I’ve heard that Roach is humorous, I understand that she’s also a bit graphic.

But a blind date is a blind date! I’ll let you know I like it!

By the way, what type of books do you all like to read?

Morbid non-fiction in my future.
