I love to read.
Last month I read fifteen or so books.
That was a light month for me.
Don't be confused-I am not counting children's books read aloud to the Kid.
My fingers and toes don't go that high.
I am including books that I have read before.
My favorite books to read fall into the Science Fiction/Fantasy/Romance(not the dinky series stuff mind you-novels)(okay sometimes dinky if Piers Anthony or The Many Adventures of Tarzan count there) categories.
I do read many other genres-contemporary fiction, humor, essay compilations, history, historical fiction, biographies, erotica, poetry, etc.
I do tend to avoid book club selections-weird maybe but I hate following trends and reading something just because some high profile git said it was good goes hard against the grain.
I love the bargain bin section of any store and am thrilled when I pull out a prize.
Crybaby Ranch and Julie and Julia are two such scores that come to mind.
Snow Flower and the Secret Fan.
The Gate to Women's Country.
Tasting Fire Eating Blood.
I have a hard time reading in the car.
I have tried many times over the years and it just doesn't work.
Paying attention to traffic and following a storyline just don't work together.
Believe me I've tried.
Did you think I was talking about reading in the passenger seat?
I'm a crazy crackhead reader of books-you gotta believe me.
