A Family Tree researcher for over 30 years and a blogger since 2010, I love to share what I find. This blog has opened up a new way to contact and keep in-touch with both family and friends. It mightn't always be genealogy related and you might not agree with my point of view but I want you to comment, ask questions and look upon this blog as 'friends having a chat'.

April 21 R is for Reading
What do you like to read? Who are your favourite authors? Books or Kindle?
I love to read and can have as many as three books on the go, at once and I usually can read three a week! My book shelves are double packed! When we went to Europe I had a dilemma, do I take clothes or books? The clothes one and I had to 'read' from my iPad. I did find two great bookshops in Paris and ended up with a couple of books. This year, in the USA I faced an even bigger problem. My iPad was running out of memory, so I deleted photos, (I had copies) and there was still a problem. In San Francisco, I bought a Kindle and transferred all my books to it.
Now here is my problem, do I buy books or do I buy Kindle books? I buy both. Some are just for the Kindle and the physical books are of authors, whose series I am collecting. Still can't go past a bookshop! The Kindle is good and light weight for travelling but I still love the smell of a new book.
In asking what you like to read, it is easier for me to say what I DON'T like to read. Science-fiction is at the top of my list and is probably the main one. I tend to select a book from the blurb or a good review. I enjoy a really good biography or autobiography.
Favourite Authors; these are in no particular order, just how they come;
Nicki Edwards, her first four books are well worth a read. A new one due out in May and the fourth in her series is due out around September. A new Australian author.
Karen Kingsbury, especially he Baxter Family Series.
Dee Henderson, The O'Malley series.
Earlene Fowler, the Bennie Harper series.
Nora Roberts, most of hers I love.
Danielle Steele, depends on my mood.
Debbie Macomber, her Blossom Street Series. Any of Debbie's are great.
Katie Fforde. Love stories.
I could go on for ever. I also re-read my favourites, several times.
