Fall Forward

sdrandco-37As I drove to work yesterday, I noticed one of the trees along the drive was turning a brilliant orange. Such a beautiful, striking bit of nature . . .

CRAP!!

Summer is over. And that sucks. Gone are the days of floating in the pool while reading a book all afternoon long. Gone are the long days of sunlight. Vacation is over (Gatlinburg . . . Pigeon Forge . . . Margaritaville . . . Sugarlands moonshine . . . ). The Star Trek convention is over (wowzers, that was a fun, fun, fun weekend!). Penned Con is a memory.
So, what is there to look forward to now?

Fall. Painting pumpkins. Scarecrows. Ravens. Roaring (electric) fire. Hot cocoa. And reading. Though I love reading during the summer, there’s something about it getting dark earlier that makes me want to curl up in a comfy chair with a warm throw, a cup of tea and a good book.

And that’s what I think I’m going to do right now . . . any suggestions for what to read next?

Book Slut: Reading Multiple Books

I heard the term “book slut” a long time ago and wasn’t sure exactly what it meant. Cheating on your favorite author? Reading more than one genre? A late night rendezvous between the sheets?

nuisetteWhatever the term means, I think I might be one.

I realized that when I updated my Goodreads status earlier today.

 

 

I’m currently reading 7 books. S E V E N. (7).

Seriously, how does that even happen? Then I looked at the books I’m reading. One audiobook in the PT Cruiser – Bossypants by Tina Fey. Got a playaway in Daisy – Finding Perfect by Susan Mallery.

Then there’s the audiobook on my Nook that I carry around with me in the house and listen to while working out on the elliptical – Friction by Sandra Brown. Then there’s the ebook on my Nook – The Wanderer by Robyn Carr. I realized that Dark Harbor by Stuart Woods is still on my list. I got it from the library, returned it before I was finished because that was during the holidays & things got busy. I need to check it out again and finish it. Oh, and I have Spying in High Heels by Gemma Halliday on my phone’s Kindle app, which I read every time I’ve got a few extra minutes. Oh, and The Witch is Back by H. P. Mallory.

And did I mention I just finished Scrapped by Mollie Cox Bryan today?

Not only do I have 7 books going right now, they are all over the map when it comes to genre: non-fiction, romance, romantic suspense, mystery, paranormal.

So, yeah, I think I’ve got a book problem.

And I’m perfectly OK with that.
