It seems strange that I’ve only read 6 books this year so far. Last year I read 40 books, so that’s 3 1/3 per month on average. I guess I’m doing okay.
Growing up I always loved to read. I would spend my summer borrowing/buying books and reading to my heart’s content. At that time I loved everything from the Sweet Valley High series to VC Andrews. Then I moved on to Danielle Steel, and I really don’t care for her stuff now.
Currently I have a lot of Nora Roberts books on my shelf. I throw one of those in between the novels. Last year I read ‘A Walk to Remember’ by Nicholas Sparks, and I loved his writing. I spent the year on a scavenger hunt at Salvation Army, scrounging his books up one by one, and now I have the whole set. Now, I just have to read them. I’ve done the same thing with Maeve Binchy books. Most, if not all, are set in Ireland and I really enjoy them. I think I’ve read all but the four on my shelf.
I’m starting a new novel today – ‘Away’ by Jane Urquhart. I’ll let you know how I like it.
