It’s what we do.
But we rarely talk about the real reason we are here. We are readers first and foremost. I know you are a lot like me—although hopefully not as bald as I am! Ha! I constantly have new books rotating through my hands. Some are novels recently published; others are books from years past I finally get to. Some are even books that haven’t been printed yet.
While we are all very different, what unites us is the constant of reading, reading, reading.
Lately, I haven’t had a lot of time for fun reading. I am in the middle of proofing the final production pages for my novel, The Dark Thorn, meaning I’ll have time to read for fun again by the end of the week. That means I’m free! Free to read what I want. And next, I will be reading and continuity editing Bloodfire Quest and Witch Wraith, both books to be published by Terry Brooks and Del Rey Books in 2013.
While those books are going to be great to read back-to-back, I’m already looking ahead to what I’ll read next. I have Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn, The Wind Through The Keyhole by Stephen King, and The Prisoner of Heaven by Carlos Ruiz Zafon to tackle. Not sure which I’ll start first. Any ideas which I should start?
Once those are done, I’m even more free. So what are you currently reading? Are you enjoying it? What are you looking forward to most in your To Be Read pile that you undoubtedly have? Any books coming out later this you can’t wait to get your hands on?
Wow me. Share with me and others.
Let’s talk about reading!
