What are you reading Tuesday...
I grew up voracious reader! I just couldn't read enough books. First it was kid books, then Nancy Drew, then anything I was interested in. I read a lot of horse books because I loved horses and riding. I read a lot of books about Abe Lincoln. When I was in my twenties, I read a lot of self help books trying to make my marriage work. Now, I read mostly mysteries or decorating books.
This is a part of my library. You can see books by John Grisham, Steve Martini, James Patterson, Harlen Coben, Lisa Scottoline, Michael Palmer and many more.
I collect books by Frances Parkinson Keyes. She was an author in the 1930's and 1940's.
I have some of my mother's collection of Detective Book Club books. She had hundreds of them and when she passed away, I kept some of hers and my favorites.
I have decorating books by the hundreds. I gave a lot away a few years ago to the Literary Guild in our area for their annual book sale.
You can see I love cottage style books.
I love, love English decorating so I've got lots of those books.
I've always wanted a dream kitchen so I have lot of those books. I may need them in the not too distant future but that's our little secret.
I have about 250 books on my Kindle, but there is nothing like the touch or feel of a real book.
I love decorating my garden too.
Starting next Tuesday (if I can figure it all out) I'm going to begin a weekly link-up of books you and I are reading. It can be romance, mystery, sci-fi, parenting, just whatever you like. And you can review it from your perspective.
I read about anything. It could be the cereal box. Or a milk carton.
I'm so excited that my grandson Carson loves, loves to read too. His Dad went to Barnes & Noble twice last week to get him more books. He's in 2nd grade. In first grade he read all the Harry Potter books. Yeah, I know. He didn't get any of those smarts from me.
Anyway.....next week you will be able to link up to my blog (fingers crossed) with the book you are currently reading.
See you then.
