Books: My Favorite Subject!
Now I have a subject that I am used to! Books...what is not to love about them? And I don't mean the Kindle version but the one with the cover and paper pages. Remember those? I need to have an actual book in my hand when I read because the other makes me feel like I am on the computer and I spend a lot of time on the computer as it is. Right now I have two book shelves full of unread books. I think I need to start reading faster!
I have a tendency to read a good murder mystery but I also like autobiographies, Christian Fiction, animal stories, and few others that just happen to catch my attention. The authors that I always look for are James Patterson, Harlan Coben, Patricia Cornwell, Karen Kingsbury, Robin Cook, Mary Higgins Clark, Lee Child, Beverly Lewis, and Tracie Peterson just to name a few. Those are the authors that I always look for their next book. I really love series of books. I really likes the Wagons West series by Dana Fuller Ross. I started collecting them again and will start them again soon.
What I Don't Like
I really don't like the 'Harlequin' romance type of books or anything too racy and explicit. I like to leave things to the imagination. I don't need things spelled out for me...literally. What I look for in a good book is for it to capture my attention at least within the first three chapters. I am also one that can only read one book and I have to finish it, no matter whether it is boring or not. Of course, I do just skim through those that are not worthy of my complete attention.
Discovering New Authors and Genres of Books
Harlan Coben and Lee Child were two authors that I just recently discovered. It is fun to try out different reads that you may not have before. I am also getting more interested in reading more about history. That is definitely new for me because I was never much of a history buff. Must just be my age.
I am sad that many great book stores have closed down now. My only way of purchasing them is online unless I travel out of town.
What are your favorite authors?
