Reading...avid or addicted?


As an avid reader, (I say avid, Paul says addicted), I am always looking for a good book. When I finish a series, I always feel a panic sweep over me wondering what I will read next. So, I am all for sharing. Many of my friends and relatives belong to Goodreads.com which allows us to share what we are reading and what we have read. It also allows one to rate and review. It is a great resource for finding what to read next. I just finished one of the best series I have ever read...The Nine Kingdoms Series. I read all three is 6 days. Please share your favorite books with me!

My favorite classical books are anything by Jane Austen. My favorite contemporary authors are Stephenie Meyer (Twilight Series and The Host) and Maria V. Snyder (Study Series). One of my favorite non-fiction books is "Black Like Me" which is a very powerful book about race relations in the south and another good non-fiction I just read this year is "Left to Tell" about a survivor of the Rwandan genocide of 1994.

As you can see, I'm an avid reader of somethings and addicted reader of others (addicted to the Twilight and Study series).

Amy,
I found this last series from a friend that I gave my study series to. You will love them. She said she thought they were somewhere between study series and twilight but I thought they were more between study series and an easy reading version of the Lord of the Rings Trilogy if a romantic woman had written it. They were so good!

That's good to know. I'm really in a funk right now and could use a new series to get me excited. I'm trying to the The Kite Runner... the jury is still out on whether I'll finish it.

Well, I am a fan of the Alexandre Dumas books. They are all pretty fantastic. (Rachel's favorite is The Count of Monte Cristo.) I was also a huge fan of The Hunchback of Notre Dame. Of course, Harry Potter is always a fantastic fall-back!
