I read a lot. If I am reading an author that I very much enjoy the world they have created, then I can go through 500+ book in about a day if I do not watch any TV or work or sleep. Yes, I have done the can’t put the book down and stay up all night reading until 3 am, then realize I have to sleep if I am going to go into the office at all when the sun rises. Usually I go through 2-4 books a week depending on the authors and if I am being a workaholic that week.
I came from a family of readers and DH is also from a family of readers. This is nice since he does not think I am completely insane if I don’t turn on the TV for a week or two or three. I used to always have a paperback book with me whenever I left the house. Now days it has just transferred to digital, which was hard, I miss smelling and holding a paperback book. But is also great too since with an tablet I don’t look so much like a bookaholic, now it looks like I could be on the net or playing games or on FB.
To the right I have made a small list of some of the authors I frequently read in case you are curious. Back in the paperback days it was mostly fantasy or sci fi, with a mystery every once in a while. Then urban fantasy started up. Now I mostly read urban fantasy because there are more female authors. I still read the other two genres, but I got very tired of reading mostly male driven genres.
I like to read stories with a plot, action, humor, life/family, mystery and a little spice/relationship. But I really enjoy an author that does unexpected humor. You know the type of author that can make you laugh or snort out loud unexpectedly, usually in a public place. Those are my favorite.
