What I'm Reading...

I'm reading the series called "The Hunger Games" by Suzanne Collins. I had no idea what it was about. I've seen them in the book store and I head from a few people now that they are really good. So Beth lent the series to me. I'm finished the first one and on to "Catching Fire" now. I am going to be very sad when they are done. I've watched almost no tv (except half a show last night) and it feels really good. I am going to hunt for more books this week to feed this need. 

Hello, my name is Miranda, and I have an addiction to reading.

Seriously though, I do get addicted once I get going. When I was younger, I would hole myself up in my room and read from after school till dinner and then afterward. Sometimes when everyone was sleeping I would wake up and read with a small light. I would read ahead on books that were meant for class reading. I would finish book reports before they were due.

Unlike Aria, I love books that have been "loved". Dogeared, a little old maybe and have "lost" their dust covers. (I hate dust covers and all my books have had them removed and thrown out). Dust covers just get in the way of good reading in my opinion. 

Going to check out amazon as well to see what is new and good out there.

Have you ever read the "Love Comes Softly" series by Janette Oke?? My mom has most of the series and she sent it to me in the summer and I powered through it pretty quickly! I love them! I grew up reading them, and I'm not one to re-read a book unless its gooood!

if you go to amazon and type in the name of a book you just loved, often they will have lists made by people who also loved that book with all of their other recommendations. this is always how i go about finding new books to read and am seldom disappointed. then i just reserve them at my library online and wait for the email to tell me they're waiting for me!

i'm still reading "a tree grows in brooklyn" (cuz 2 kids reduces the amount of free reading time A LOT!) and am really savoring it, its SO good! i'd also recommend "the time traveler's wife" and my all time favorite, "evening" by susan minot. oh, and "the blind assasin" by margaret atwood is a good science-fictiony one.
