Jan W, thanks for answering! It's now been a bit since I finished Unsindable and I don't know if I read the first book. Probably not. I'm not as "into" Debbie R. as my sister has been, but I was a young woman when she was a popular actress. If I get the chance, I'll read Debbie: My Life, though.
Hi Jan W,
Was wondering ..... do you read books via pulp, digital, or both?
I have an iPad2 which I've uploaded (or is that download?) with books but I find I don't read much on the device. For one, it's hard to hold the iPad for long periods of time, unlike pulp books which just seem to be custom made for the human hand. For two, the iPad is a device I worry about droppinig and destroying it. Pulp books can take a licking. My iPad doesn't tuck into my handbag very well, when a paperback is an easy fit. Pulp books are user friendly in bright sunlight, the iPad is impossible to read in sunlight.
Oh my gosh, I received the BEST secret santa present ever today in my mailbox. I can't thank you enough for your lovely thoughtful selections. I honestly cannot WAIT to read The Help. I can't believe you found a used copy for me . . .I'm so delighted! And I know Dogs of Babel will be a treat too. THANK YOU THANK YOU so much!!!!
HI Jan. It's okay. I'll check the others. I also got your PM. I like mysteries, cozies, thrillers and romance mostly, with a slice of new genres to try a little bit every year. I do have Sue Grafton on my TBR list. I hope to get to her later this year. And if not, next year. I'll place The Secret Life of Bees on my list for next year. As for Laura Levine, I have that tile on my bookshelf right now TBR and will get to read it sometime next year. Wouldn't you know? As for Janet Evanovich, I also have her on my TBR list-don't know when I'll get to her this year. I've read one JA Jance book last year-Without Due Notice-I think i was the time. I do have the author on my list but won't know when I get to it at this moment. I've finished an inspirational book by Laura Pedersen, which is also Teen Fiction/YA, about life's ups and down. The title is The Big Shuffle, I believe it's part of the series. Just updated it now and will fix more of my shelf later on. I'll be starting Black Rose tomorrow. I'm also reading Whack a Mole by Chris Grabenstein and A Great Deliverance by Elizabeth George. Good to hear from you. Apology accepted.
Hi Jan, I love my Kindle & find that I read faster on it because you can adjust the font & it just seems to be easier than holding a book. I have a couple of beautiful leather Oberon covers. I love the smell of leather & I feel as if I am holding a nicely bound leather book. I still frequent book stores to look at books & enjoy the smell of the print. There are some DTB I purchase because of the photographs.
I rarely post on any of the groups I belong to Jan. I have changed some memberships, canceled some but I have difficulty posting because of the size of the groups. I am a member of Kindleboards and do most of my posting there.
Looking forward to being friends & sharing good reads. :)
Thank you for the book:) Sounds like I need to come visit you and spend time in that book store. I don't have any used ones down here. And my son (a non reader blah) informed me I had to many books when I made him help me rearrange my bookshelves this weekend. I finally got a weekend off and I was going to do it so it wouldn't drive me insane anymore.
