Books To Read

I haven’t been to the library in awhile and I needed some new books to read. Saturday I stopped in and loaded up. I carried my stash of books home and struggled to carry them in the back door. My son’s girl friend opened the door for me and I carried them in.

“How long will it take you to read all those?” she asked.

“About a week,” I answered.

I’ve always been a fast reader and for years I was “book starved.” Now I’m making up for lost time.

That was Saturday…today is Tuesday. So far I have finished Don’t Go by Lisa Scottoline and Suspect by Robert Crais. I highly recomend them both. I finished Don’t Go in one sitting. Suspect took a little longer because I had things to do that couldn’t wait so I had to stop and start often, but the book is excellent.

When my children were little about the only books I read were written by Dr. Seuss. Those were the years I was “book starved.” I love reading and am so glad I have a great library full of great books to read!

Leave me a comment and let me know what you are reading! Link up with me, too!


  1. I haven’t read a book in a while, hoping for more downtime this Summer!

    I read Suspect recently & loved it.

    Another one I just recently read is “Me Before You” Can’t remember the author’s name at the moment, but it was Really good.

  24. I admire your reading rhythm, interesting books!

  25. Perfect timing to want book recommendations!
    BOOK Expo America started today and the bloggers version Armchair BEA as well !
    My top 5 newest posts are all books 😉
    And the kettle’s always on , so you’re welcome to stop by and get a few new ideas for reading …

  26. I still read kid lit. A little more advanced than Dr. Seuss, but kid lit. I’m currently working through Margaret Peterson Haddix’s Missing series. I love her!

  27. I have recently fallen in love with all books by Lesley Pearse. Historical fiction with a great strong female lead. I’ve read 6 of hers lately.

  28. I took 4 novels with me to the beach this week and already finished all. Wish I had grabbed more. I love to read, but family and work gets in the way, usually.

  29. I got a Kindle Fire HD for Mothers’ Day so I’m finally back to reading. (My eyes have gotten too bad to read books but anything that’s backlit is ok.) I’m wrapping up the Roam series right now.

  30. This is quite a heap of books to read. I really need to find more time to read.

  31. I actually took out a few books for me this past weekend. I already had a couple of non fiction books out, but I was wanting something to read other than the Twilight series. A couple of summers ago I was reading a bunch of different books, even doing book reviews on my other blog. Then I read Twilight, which I hadn’t even been interested in prior to that,. I have since read the series multiple times and have trouble starting other books. So I grabbed up some Christian suspense. Read one in one day. It was nice actually.

  32. I also love a good mystery or thriller, and Scottoline adn Grdner are among some of my favorites.

  33. Some of those books look really good, especially Don’t Go. I love to read as well but don’t have much time to do so in the summer. During the winter, though, I enjoy reading a lot.

  34. You sure do have some good books there!

    I am currently reading the book Seedsavers Treasure. I won it in the Kids Book Week giveaway hop & wanted to read it before I pass it on to our grandchildren.

  36. that’s a lot, I sure miss reading. all I get to read now is just the Bible and devotionals, i miss reading a book

  37. I love to read, but I’m in the stage of life where the only books I get to read are the Bible and books I use in homeschooling my small people. Enjoy your books!

    Thanks for linking up over at Tales of a Pee Dee Mama

  38. I’ve always been a fast reader who takes way too many books out of the library (and reads them all) too. I think it’s a good thing. 🙂

  39. Thanks for visiting us at pret-a-vivre Teresa and for the book recommendation. I am re-reading the Great Gatsby right now :).

  40. Whoa! That’s a nice stash of books you have there. I need to get back in the habit. I have a lot of books that I want to catch up on too. Thanks for stopping by to link up! 🙂

  41. I am reading the Outlander Series by Diana Gabaldon. I am on The Fiery Cross right now.
