Books I’m Reading
Sometimes when someone finds out that I’m an author, they will ask me what books I’m reading. This can very a lot because my goal is to read 100 books each year. I read paper books, eBooks and listen to audiobooks.
Right now I’m actually reading three books: “Dragonfly in Amber” – Book 2 in the The Outlander Series by Diana Gabaldon, “You are a Badass” by Jen Sincero (2ndtime on this one) and “Beachcombers” by Nancy Thayer. It may sound crazy to read three at one time but I decide each morning which one sounds good to me.
Listening to audiobooks is my preference and I will listen to them on 2x speed while cleaning, cooking, etc. My family often laughs at me if I have the speakers turned on while “reading”. I’ve gotten so used to the faster speed that I can understand every word. To them, it sounds like a garbled message. Then I proceed to tell them that it is no different than speed-reading. LOL! But this is the way I get to read a lot of fantastic books.
If there is a book that I like to make notes on and use highlighters, I’m a bit slower but love that I can do this in a paper book or on my Kindle app. I have to admit that the Kindle makes it great to have so many wonderful books at your fingertips. Plus now that the library loans eBooks and Audible books, there are so many great titles to choose from. This is especially good if you travel or are going on vacation. Much easier to take an iPad or Kindle with you loaded with some good reading material.
As I find more great books to read, I’ll let you know. And please let me know what you are reading now. Summertime is perfect for those laid back times of relaxing and enjoying a good book.
Big Hugs Everyone!
