Where I've Been Lately

This is a picture of me in my jammies...And that is a picture of my iPad on my lap. Inside the iPad my Kindle app is loaded and ready...Inside the Kindle app are the books I've been reading since the New Year. It's not one of my New Year's resolutions to read more, but it seems like that's all I've been doing lately. It started with Jane Eyre and ended with the Hunger Games trilogy. And in between? Frankenstein and Northanger Abbey. I don't know what's with me. I'm outta control with the reading of the words. lol Or maybe in my head I think it'll help with my blogging blocks. Who knows?

All I can tell you is that I'm behind on my laundry and I didn't talk to Lovey this past weekend cause I was reading all day. I don't plan to stop either. My work's busy season is coming up, so that means I've got about 2 weeks of free reading time. I can read a book in 1-3 days (I read the last two in the HG trilogy this past Sunday!!! No joke.) So I can read at least a handful more during that time. Please let me know if you have any titles to recommend, especially public domain or free downloads. I tend to lean toward classics! You know what would be even better? Loaning me an e-book! Let me know!

Here's what I've read:

Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte
Northanger Abbey by Jane Austen
Frankenstein by Mary Shelley
Hunger Games Trilogy by Suzanne Collins (I gotta update my About Me section now)

My favorite so far? I think Northanger Abbey. I went into that book not knowing ANYTHING about it. So everything was a surprise...

  1. There is nothing better than burying yourself in a good book ^_^ I'm not a huge fan of the classics but I did really enjoy Wuthering Heights. If you liked Frankenstein perhaps you should have a bash at Bram Stoker's Dracula, that's a goodie.

  2. I've been reading the Song of Ice and Fire series that A Game of Thrones is based on. It's taking me a long time - I started the series the week of Thanksgiving and I'm only book 3. But so far the shortest book of the series was 1,000 (the one I'm currently reading is over 1400) so I guess it's okay that it's taking a while. I have no idea how you can read books so fast! As far as recs, have you read East of Eden? Or 100 Years of Solitude? Both awesome. And Pride & Prejudice (or anything Jane Austin) is always a winner. :)
