I LOVE TO READ!!!
Sometimes it is hard for me to find THE right book. But I am very fortunate that several years ago, I stared a "book exchange library" for our camping/lodging guests.
I'm sure there are at least 500 books in the library. I started out with just a few, picked some up at yard sales, etc and kept adding to the collection. Some guests would leave off a sack full of books and not take anything in exchange.
When I read one of the books in the library, I put our Clementz's Northcountry Campground and Cabins stamp/address on the inside. That way I know if I have read it and the next person who gets the book hopefully will remember they got it here and they had a nice time!!
But, I have gotten to a standstill. It isn't that I have read all the books out there. It is just that I haven't found any that hold my attention or impress me enough that I want to read it.
So I splurged yesterday. I re-joined Literary Guild. Now, I'm counting the days till my 7 new books arrive. I bought 5 for 99 cents and was able to get two others for $5.99 each (plus shipping).
The first time I joined Literary Guild (many years ago) I had to start keeping a list of the books I had purchased because TWICE within the course of a couple of years I purchased those books again. So, now I compare what I want to purchase to what I've already purchased.
Even though LG gives you a synopsis of what the book is about and who the author is, sometimes that just doesn't stick with me...until I get the book and start reading it.
Hopefully, in a couple of weeks I will have my new books.
Do you enjoy reading and if so who is your favorite author?
