When I was about 19 I had a job at the mall and on my breaks I would stroll on over to the family owned book store in the mall -they really did have a FAMILY owned book store, I promise! I'd pick up the latest of my then sci-fi daily book obsession. Yes, I'd read a book a day during the slow hours at work and after my social hours afterwards. Around this point, I started running out of space to put the books.
From the time I was about 21 to recently I would read a book here and there, but not in any obsessive way. I bought myself a Nook when they first came out and I became addicted all over again. Read as much as I want and not take up any physical space - yes please!
I'm addicted again. I now read my books on my iPad. I have to read something before bed or I can't sleep. I love being lost in a different world because as a mom of three, that is my only escape from reality. My current genre of reading obsession is paranormal romance, specifically those centered around shifters. I mean, seriously, you can't get much more alpha male than a werewolf, right?
Some of my favorite books and authors (all genres):
- Piers Anthony
- Mists of Avalon
- Laurann Dohner
- Pamela Palmer
- Kallypso Masters
- Cherise Sinclair
- Richelle Mead
I'm thinking of branching out to other genres again, but afraid I'll get bored. There is a genre challenge going on over at A Daydreamer's Thoughts. I haven't committed yet, but I may. What are you reading?
