Gosh what an addiction this reading is....I think it always was for me. Living in a small town I can remember as a child ordering books from the State Library in Bismark and getting huge boxes in the mail...and of course it took me no time to read them. Dad was always lugging those boxes back and forth to the post office.

I just read "The Reunion by Dan Walsh" and it was just wonderful. Anyone else read his books....as soon as I finish it I got "The Discovery" and "The Unfinished Gift" LOVED them all....Check them out

Also love Lynn Austins Books......a lot of hers take place in the early 1900 or during WWII often span several generations of a family. Loved A Womans Place....about 4 women who get jobs in a factory during WWII....a retired teacher, girl right out of high school, a stay at home wife, and a newly married young woman who's husband has just shipped out. .............Her fiction based on the Bible are Very interesting too....loved those as well.

The last time I posted I had just gotten a Nook....since then I got a Kindle Fire HD also and oh gosh...after taking advantage of all the Freebies online I will not live long enough to read them all LOL..........4389 books on my Kindle and 532 on my Nook. I had the intent of just dumping them if they did not grab me right away, but have yet to find one that was not really good.

Book Bub is a good source. And my library has an amazing collection of e-books and Kindle books. Sometimes I have to,wait a couple of weeks for a title, but with so many free ones from Book Bub, I'm never without something to read.

I'm never without a book of some sort in my hands - be it a hard copy or on my IPad - I guess because of my hubby's job I read a lot of murder mysteries and true stories - then I bombard Rich with questions like "how could they do that and get way with it".  He is so not a reader so my questions do get him interested in the story and he almost always wants to hear more,

 

Oh, and quite often I can be found playing Solitaire on my IPad - is that a good thing or a bad thing, y'all think?

I play solitaire a lot! If I only have a few minutes, it's perfect! I haven't read anything since Christmas. That's unheard of for me. I'll have to check out the authors Carol mentioned!

If you like murder mysteries, have you ever read anything from Christian author Terri Blackstock? Her NewPointe 911 series got me hooked on her. There are 5 books in this series and it covers the police and fire department of this little town in Louisiana. All 5 books keep you on the edge of your seat and you don't want to put them down!!

I have loved reading since forever.  I'm still old fashioned and need to hold a book in my hands.  Dr. Suess had it right ... oh, the places you'll go.

I have always loved reading too. As a matter of fact that is how I decided that I was truly in love with my husband (almost 46 years!). When I was out on a date with him, I never wished I was home reading a good book! Now, though, scrapping gets in the way of my reading - sometimes I would even rather be scrapping than out with him! LOL!

What I'm reading may not be of interest to y'all here but as an LEO wife, this book is a good read!  It's spot on for the lives we lead as LEO wives and I'm loving reading it.  It's called Bullets in the Washing Machine written by an LEO wife.

Yes!  Yes, I have, Lei!  I loved that series of books!  I bought them, loaned them out and they've now been re-loaned a couple of times!
