A friend of mine owns a consignment store and decided to either donate to charity or trash a heavy volume of books, but before doing so, I was free to check them out. Yippeee! Talk about being in the right place at the right time! I've known her since 2004, yet when she haphazardly mentioned that she didn't read, I gasped loudly believing an alien had actually replaced her body, and that something was wrong with her. Seriously! (lol)
She admits to not reading in school unless she had to, nor did she care about the latest release, like I do. Many are amazed that three (3) books travel with me, because any time I'm alone, or there's a lull in a conversation, is the perfect chance to read a chapter or finish a book. Some may think I'm weird, but most people are used to this scenario.
I can't imagine a world without books, or reading. On the opposite side of the spectrum, blogger friends are reading all the time and they are sharing the news via reviews, or on Social Media, and I love that. In fact, many have TBR piles in the hundreds!
So checking out the blogosphere provides plenty of opportunities to learn about new authors and titles, or simply listening to other opinions. Call us what you will - book nerds, bookworms. bookaholics or whatever is out there these days. We live for those books and life without them would never be the same.
Meanwhile, I managed to snag books from Christine Feehan, J. R. Ward, Sierra Cartwright, Lori Foster, Nora Roberts, Richard Kincaid, various cookbooks , and a few more. All FREE. Not a bad day!
