Re: What Book are you reading now?

@xoforbiddenfruitxo -- That book is also one of my favorites! I  hope you enjoy the second and third installments; the series gets better, if at all possible.

Re: Community Room

I just finished

 

Swallowing Darkness (Meredith Gentry Series #7) 

 

Loved it, but definately not a YA read!!!! 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Currently reading

 

Dead Witch Walking (Rachel Morgan Series #1) 

 

I really like this book.  Rachel is a really likable character, she reminds me a little bit of Stephanie Plum (Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum Series), but not as unlucky.  I hope the rest of the series is as enjoyable.

HELP! I've fallen and can't reach my book!!!!

Where do you read?

[ Edited ]

Someone posed a question on another First Look book that I thought was a lot of fun.

The question was where do you like to read, do you have a beverage, pets with you, TV on, etc. I would like to know.

 

So to start I usually read on my couch in the living room. Usually with the TV on as background noise(bad habit of mine). I usually have a cup of tea. My 2 favorites are Earl Grey and Japanese Wild Cherry teas. My 2 dogs are right there with me, Bridget the Standard Poodle and Mika the Japanese Chin. I also like reading on my deck in the summer with all my usual things with me, tea and dogs.

 

So please join in, I would like to know where you read.

Re: Where do you read?

Good question Pen21,

 

For me I read wherever and whenever I can.  If I am sitting in my chair at home then the cat crawls in my lap and bats at my book till she falls asleep.  But I don't have anyone particular place.

Re: Where do you read?

I read everywhere (even in the tub, bad habit I know), but my favorite places to read are out on a quilt in the sun or curled up on my couch with a warm blanket when it is raining..

Re: Where do you read?

I read everywhere. Usually while the TV is on. I need background noise. I find if it's too quiet I get distracted easily. I almost always have a book on me so I read in my car when picking up kids, or in waiting rooms, etc.

I really like this book.  Rachel is a really likable character, she reminds me a little bit of Stephanie Plum (Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum Series), but not as unlucky.  I hope the rest of the series is as enjoyable.


 

 


I just finished reading "Dead Witch Walking" and started "The Good, The Bad and The Undead" (Book #2).  I really enjoyed DWW, enough to start the next book and look foward to finishing out the series.  I am used to reading LKH so it was a definately something different, but a good different.  I would say a cross between Stephanie Plum and Mercedes Thompson (Patricia Briggs).  The other characters are great too.  I would definately recommend this book.  I hope you enjoy.

Re: Community Room

Thanks for the information. I will move it to the top of my pile.

I really like Stephanie Plum. I don't know the other one you mentioned, but I will look into that one.

Re: Where do you read?

I'm glad someone else needs that background noise. I usually have the TV on too.

I do keep a book in my car or purse so I have something to read if I get a few minutes to read. It is fun to know that others do that too.
