The Joy of Books

I've been reading a lot lately for a few reasons. I want to become a better writer, for self-education, and mainly because I live next door a brand-new library with over 700,000 titles in their database.  I'm obsessed with collecting titles for my "to read" list.

I was one of those people who said e-readers killed the hardcover book industry, but I'm eating my words today. The library is where it's at! One word: FREE! Sure, sometimes I have to wait several weeks to come off the waiting list for popular titles, but I have too many options to choose from to really care.

I know what it's like to live in a county was a deplorable library system.

Been there, done that, had the original 1960s book to prove it. So, I say all of this to say, take advantage of your local library. :-)


I'm still giving my Kindle love, though. I will dust it off next month while on vacation. I'm not lugging around all those hardcover books on the beach. :-)

What's on your reading list?
