I read during lunch time at work. I read when waiting for long traffic lights. I have been known to read in avoidance of housework and my bedtime.
I have a huge spreadsheet that shows books and their authors. That is to say, books I have read and want to read. I use it to keep track of my library books - when I've requested them and when they are due. I can sort them by author, title, year, or series name and number; but I usually keep it sorted by due date and whether I currently have them in my possession.
Here's a screen shot of my book list:
If I think I've read everything an author has written, I check it at this really cool web site:
Fantastic Fiction (OMG, another Mitch Rapp book!)
Something interesting about what I like to read: My two favorite genres are black ops and bonnet novels. An understatement would be: "These genres are opposite of each other." Let's see: undercover dirty work vs. a peaceful existence. Yup. Crazy Mary ...
Bonnet novels are mostly books about Amish girls and women (and sometimes Mennonites). My favorite authors of this sort are:
W Dale Cramer
Suzanne Woods Fisher
Paul L Gaus
Lynn Austin (historical fiction through many ages)
Terri Blackstock (modern)
Janette Oke (American historical fiction)
Authors I like who write about pioneer or western women are:
Black ops are secret military-type missions, which may include killing and/or rescue missions. My favorite authors of this type are:
Some of my other favorite authors are:David Baldacci
C J Box
Gerald A Browne
Mary Higgins Clark
Jayne Ann Krentz
John D MacDonald
Patrick D Smith
So, what am I currently reading? "Birthright," by Janette Oke, book 3 of the Song of Acadia series..
What types of books do you like to read? Do you ever let a hobby (like reading) overrun your life at times?
