From shouldbereading:

To play along, just answer the following three (3) questions…

• What are you currently reading?
• What did you recently finish reading?
• What do you think you’ll read next?

• What are you currently reading?

I’m currently reading a friend’s manuscript, and it’s great fun. Scotland, tarot cards, magic, strange creatures–I’d forgotten what an amazing imagination she had! (Oh, and shoes. Did I mention shoes? GREAT shoes.)

• What did you recently finish reading?

The Spirit Lens, by Carol Berg. Gorgeous guy on the cover, btw. I actually listened to this on audio.  Lots of twists and turns, here. The characterizations were sharp and some of the turns they took unexpected. The book ended satisfyingly and yet left you eager to see what happens next.  (First in a trilogy.)

 

 

 

• What do you think you’ll read next?

I am probably going to listen to the second audiobook in the Flavia de Luce series, The Weed That Strings the Hangman’s Bag

Which reminds me. I was going to order the first book in the series from England and the order got messed up and I never got it. Must handle that now.

 

As for reading rather than being read to, I may plunge ahead into Ha’penny, the sequel to Farthing.  I really do want to know what is happening to those characters now.

I must be in a sequel/series kind of mood.

And finally, a couple of nonfiction books are on my radar. I’ve downloaded the samples to my Kindle, and if they’re as interesting as they sound, I may be reading Gardening Nude and Eminent Outlaws: The Gay Writers Who Changed America, too.

What about you? What are your WWWs?

    I’m currently in the middle of re-reading the Sign of Seven Trilogy by Nora Roberts. Also, I’m having a wonderful time reading a manuscript by Patricia Burroughs.

    I just received the first book in a new series from Michael Pryor in the mail (I had to order it from Australia). So, that’s up next!

      I’m not sure how I have missed the Nora Roberts bandwagon. So many friends adored her back in the day, and now, new friends adore her JD Robb books and… how did I miss that? Well someday I’ll get burned out on British settings and give her a shot.

      And I am blushing. I’m glad you’re enjoying reading it. I am certainly happy with your incisive notes!

      This may be a stupid quseoitn, but are you shopping at Amazon’s US site or the UK site?Also, a lot of the free books are in the public domain. these can be found in Kindle format at gutenberg.org and manybooks.net, among others. You have to download them and transfer them to the Kindle via USB, but it’s pretty easy.

      I’ve had my eye on the kindle for a while. But can’t seem to let go of hodling the actually book. However, you are right. I can’t carry all of my books everywhere I go. I’m already clumsy. I currently have Kindle on my phone which makes it even more convenient. A book at your fingertips any time you want. Now isn’t that a concept? Happy reading!

    I tabled The Gift because I needed a break from it–not that into it. So I reread a regency book (Kindle said it updated it because there problems with the first one) and two set in Scotland in the 1400-1500′s from some Kindle freebies I’ve acquired recently and started one set in London in the Victorian era last night. I’ll try The Gift again in a few days to see if I still like it. I have tons of paper and Kindle books waiting to be read.

      Have you found any good freebies to recommend? The Scottish ones sound interesting, as does the Victorian.

    Currently, I am reading Letters of a Woman Homesteader by Stewart, Elinore Pruitt; Just read Sleeping with Paris by Julie Sobanet, not sure what the next will be since my Kindle has gone belly up. :/

      Oh, no! I love my Kindle. Can’t imagine not having a working one, and yes, I was late to the cult after much protesting that I would never want one.

    Nice to meet a happy Kindle owner. FYI, if you’re a bit adventurous about the books you read, Amazon makes avbllaaie a ton of free books almost daily (trade publications and indies). I track them, and I’ve happily downloaded a couple of really good ones (like the Miss Marple mystery by Agatha Christie for example)

      Thanks for the heads up. I haven’t read Christie in years.
