A transformation has happened...

.....I'm addicted to reading! I was a self proclaimed non-reader. Once I graduated from Nursing School, I promised myself that I wouldn't read a book for a year. It was over five years before I finally picked up a book. Since May, I have read 6 books! It is crazy. I'll finish my 7th book tonight. Here is what I am currently reading.



This is my second Nicholas Sparks book. I've already bought another one. I love his writing style and stories. I am able to vacation in North Carolina without leaving my home state of Kansas!

I would love to hear what others are reading. Do you have a list of suggestions? Can't wait to start another adventure!

One of my personal favorites is "Dick and Jane". Especially the part about seeing Spot run...it's a page-turner!

Glad you're loving reading!! :)

Haha! That comment above cracked me up! I love anything by Jostein Gaarder (Sophie's World being my fave!) and I just finished 'A Thousand Splendid Suns' by Khaled Hosseini and it was brilliant! I'll have to check out the one you mentioned :)

Hey Harriet- That was my oh so funny husband that left the first comment! What can I say, I'm one lucky lady to be his wife:) Humor helps any marriage!

Thanks so much for your suggestions. I'll definitely check them out.

I have read that Nicholas Sparks books too! It is pretty good. Right now am reading The Hour I First Believed, by Wally Lamb. That too is awesome! I can understand being burnt out after nursing school..been there!

I'm in the middle of "Phantom Prey" by John Sanford. I've read all his many Lucas Davenport books. I have been writing my own detective/serial killer/recurring characters book for several years now. I'm still editing, my 91 yr old Mom got to read it - - she said "write more into it." So back to the drawing board. My Mom still gets her books at the library, and she is sharp as a tack, so reading does help our minds as we age!

jenn- Wally Lambs book sounds so interesting. It is on my wish list.

Sue-Congrats on writing a book! What an accomplishment. I'm going to check out John Sanfords books on line. It is a great way to research before I purchase. Or I'll go to the library like your mom:)
