I love to read. I read books, magazines,  the internet, whatever. I am willing to read a wide variety of books and authors, although I do have my favorite.
I am going to try to share my books with you all. There is no framework for this so sometimes it might be a review,  a summary or just saying to check a book or author out.

My goal for this year is to read 46 books, one more than last year. I usually read books on my commute and lunch hour. At home I read magazines and news stories. I currently am at 18 books, 6 books ahead of schedule per Goodreads.

I will read actual books or kindle, depending on if its a good deal. I read both non-fiction and fiction. My favorite genres are true crime and chick lit. I love some classics. I will re-read books if it has been a few years; it is like reading it for the first time.

My favorite authors include Chuck Palahniuk, Dean Koontz, Jennifer Weiner and Jodi Picoult.

I read my first Alex Cross (James Patterson) book and immediately went oout and bought two more. I also really enjoy Barbara Freethy and plan to read more of her books.

I also like the Stieg Larsson books and plan to read more Scandanavian thriller books. I’ve bought several Jo Nesbo books.

I enjoy biographies and books on pieces of histroy. I read a lot of books on WWII and Nazi Germany. I just find it a fascinating amd horrible time.

I  not a fan of romance novels. I’ve read a few and don’t mind some but I don’t seek them out. I have the Fifty Shades books (someone gave them to me) but
have yet to read them. They just don’t interest me and I’ve heard the writing is terrible.

I look forward to sharing my world of books with you! And maybe you can share some of your favorites with me. I am always looking for new books/authors.
