I've Been Reading!

I have spend the past several weeks trying to quelch my nearly insatiable thirst for reading and books. But not just any books (I am choosy). Only books that thrill me, that transport me to far away lands, that fling me back centuries, even a millennium, ago. And so, I have visited ~ vicariously, thru the pages of numerous books ~ the courts of kings and queens, pre-WW2 Germany, the tower of London, and even the Vatican. Even now, I find myself two-thirds of the way thru a book called Poison: A Novel of the Renaissance, and I have a stack of 6 or 7 books on my desk, waiting for me to ravish. I have not written anything of real substance in weeks; I like to think that, in reading so voraciously, I am fueling up my muse, for a time in the near future when she must work, once more.

Hoping you all are having a wonderful summer. I love to see the roses blooming, and breathe in their delicate scent. I also delight in seeing the black berries are finally plumping themselves up. The sun has been quite generous, these past few days, but it's the cool night breezes I love best.

What a delightful post! Enjoy your books, enjoy your summer!
I rarely read novels these days. Too many other books want my attention. An attention I don't give them often enough!

Hello! Hello!

Your books certainly look fascinating and intriguing! So here I am with my little green pen scribbling little notes of some I might possibly find where I am.

Oh, and yes, I am looking forward to viewing more of your future choices. Excited.

Happy reading!

WOW - my tastes are ALL OVER THE PLACE.

I'll have a stephen king next to a cutesy teen romance, next to a historical, next to a memoir . . .

Also - I bet with such specific taste, you're probably also a picky reader. I think that's a good thing :D

Yes, Jolene, I am quite a picky reader ... fortunately it doesn't look like I'll run out of books anytime soon!
