In the Writer’s House #33b: Do you Suffer from Library Book-itis too? #amreading Part 2

Last week, I showed you all the library books I had checked out currently from three area libraries our family frequents. If you missed the whole 83-book-pile, you can see it here. This week, I thought I’d show you the breakdown of genres, and explain why I have so many. #bookworm problems Continue reading

In the Writer’s House #33: Do You Suffer From Library Book-itis Too? #amreading Part 1

Oh, my. I just can’t seem to help myself. I feel like new books are coming at me at the speed of an Indie 500 car. I go to several libraries to write. And hardly ever come home empty handed. Can you relate? Continue reading

GoodReads Goal: January Wrap Up

my current fiction stack

Dear Readers,

I’ve set this year’s reading goal at 75. So far for the month of January I’m on track, even a little ahead at 9 books.

I’ve finished 3 homeschooling books, 3 WWII books, including the children’s book, The War That Saved My Life, by Kimberly Bradley. The last 3 were suspense/mystery.

The War That Saved My Life book

My favorite for this month was Above Suspicion by Helen MacInnes, mentioned in an earlier post.  See it here: http://wp.me/p6J6uk-4E

Above Suspicion by Helen MacInnes

Great book during WWII

Do you have a favorite this month so far? How is your reading coming along? Have any books to share with us?

Happy reading!

I’m Nutty

about books!

I’ll tell you why. Yesterday, I went to three public libraries in the area where I live. Yes, three.

I went to the first one to meet a writing friend so we could work on our books. During a break to stretch and walk around, I found three books and four movies to check out.

I worked at that library for a couple hours, then my friend and I had lunch together. Later that afternoon, the kids and I went to the military base library because they had 7 items on hold for me. Plus I found a new author to try.

After dinner, I took my son to Lego club at our city library and checked out even more books. I think if I counted only my library books right now, I have about 31 books to read.

This is why I’m nutty.

I feel like a kid in a candy store whenever I step foot in a library. I think, ‘Oh, I’d like to try that author’. ‘Or that book looks good’. ‘Oh, I’ve never heard of him/her, I’ll see if I like them’.

Several of my books are on homeschooling, as I’m learning about a new way of doing things. Some are fiction, and some are either about writing or marketing. I am always learning something!

And this doesn’t count the three books delivered by Amazon yesterday. 🙂

Today, I’m returning to one of those libraries (the bigger one) so the kids can get more books. Am I crazy or what?

How many library books do you have on hand right now? I’m curious to know if I’m the only nutty one about books!

Happy reading!
