My Book Passion
Contrary to what some of you might think I'm not just a bitter old Mom who blogs crap every other day but I also am a voracious reader. I love using that word. Voracious. It's rather difficult to ease it into conversation. But voracious reader I am.
I love reading about the authors too. It cracks me up when I see or hear an author and I'm shocked that their the author of a favorite book I've read. I guess that's where don't judge a book by the author's back cover comes in.
I actually read probably more than I do anything else. I'm not saying I get caught up in a good book and am still in my jammies when the kids get home and nothing has been done. Or maybe I am. I won't confess that.
But, reading is one of my top passions. Along with The Atlanta Braves, And Disney World. But, that's a nasty obsession for another day.
I am partial to murder mysteries, (female authors only) paranormal, smut, funny contemporary, smut, etc. Not a fan of espionage and all that crap. Too much like reality on CNN.
I'm the cheapest reader as well. I will troll Amazon's Kindle book site almost daily for the freebies. 1 out of 6 are pretty good reads. But, I will pay for the best sellers. And if my Kindle gets down to 5 or less books I start to sweat and get nervous.
Just a little insight into my little bubble that holds me and keeps me reality free.
Plus, reading takes you away from reality so people around you look more like this......
