Questions About Books...
Ann asked me in a comment on my last entry about books and reading. She wanted to know if I read Terri Goodkin.
Alas, another author I keep meaning to pick up. I used to be a hard core fantasy reader... actually that's all I would read. Over the last couple of years I've been spreading my wings a bit more (I suppose as a Library Tech. I should). I still read fantasy, my current novel that I'm reading is a doozie its "Eyes of God" by John Marco its over 700 pages I'm about half way through it.
My next book will be Confessions of a Shopoholic lent to me by my friend Marj she says its a hoot. Over the last couple of years I've read some classics, young adult, and mainstream fiction.
Ann also asked about David Eddings and George R.R. Marin. Two more authors I haven't read yet. I think my list keeps getting longer!
Some of my favorite authors are C.J. Cherryth, Robin McKinley, Patricia Kennally Morrison, and Tara K. Harper. A few of them have stopped writing, and some of them have changed genre.
Also, I don't read as much as I used to. Part of it is time not having enough of it... or it takes away from my stitching time. When I used to ride the bus (in another life when I lived in the city and didn't have a car) I read a lot! When I was a teen I would inhale a book every week to two weeks. Now it sometimes takes me months!
Those were the good ole days!
