So on the heels of TV Tuesday – today’s post is supposed to be words, and today I’ve decided to make it about words.
I love books, I love to read. I love to hoard them. I have them in every room on almost every topic. I have hard back, soft back, big ones, little ones – I jsut love them. I love the way they feel, smell, the feel of the pages… everything.
I usually only read one thing at a time, although sometimes I’m reading a fun book and a less fun book. In the past… 3months, I’ve blown through several series – the Twilight Series, the By the Numbers Series by Janet Evanovice… as in Books 1 – 4, plus 3 in between the numbers in less than 2 weeks, 4 books from Cormac McCarthynand I can’t tell you how many books I’ve read in addition to those. I had started a reading list, but got behind, and now I’m too far behind.
Some of my favorite authors are: Jennifer Weiner, Jodi Picoult, Cormac McCarthy, James Patterson – but really I read almost anything.
So – two fun things today – what do you read? What have you read? What are you reading now?
For those of you that are not book readers – waht magazines do you read?
And second – lets play this game:
Grab the book nearest you. Right now.
* Turn to page 56.
* Find the fifth sentence.
* Post that sentence along with these instructions in a note to your wall.
* Don’t dig for your favorite book, the coolest, the most intellectual. Use the CLOSEST.
I have 2 –
Cross Country, James Patterson
“Someone had fired from the roof of a tractor trailer – as he ran down the length of it. ”
You: On a Diet, Dr. Oz (what can I say – it looked interesting)
“The powerful crushing motion helps us extract every possible calorie from the prime rib deluxe”
Okay – I’ll be excited to read your answers below!
