I don’t know about you, but I am excited about reading. So many books, so little time. I am blessed to receive review copies of books months in advance, and all I can say is that there are a lot of awesome books awaiting this summer in a broad range of genres. People have been sending me a lot of e-books; I just can’t get into the Kindle. Don’t get me wrong: I love that Kindles are inspiring a new class of readers (my wife is addicted to long romance novels on the Kindle, all of a sudden). For me, I just love holding a real book (I write notes in them as I read). I also like snooping at what others are reading, and Kindles take that pleasure away from me. Oh well!
I hope you are reading a bunch of great things. When do you like to read? Where do you like to read? If you read a page every morning and another every evening on the toilet, you could make it through a lengthy biography, 2-3 young adult novels and a couple of dozen children’s books a year. So get reading! I have read my usual steady diet of eclectic titles this past month, including Danette Key’s On the Edge of Wishing (super-quick read), Mary Higgins Clark’s Daddy’s Gone a Hunting (completely dependable author) and Maeve Binchy’s touching A Week in Winter (great Irish storyteller).
Anyhow, enjoy this month’s book selections below. I hope you are all reading some wonderful books. Make sure to tell me all about them. If you're an author or a publisher and would like to send me review copies of your book(s), please send them to the address listed for authors and publishers.
Have a wonderful May, and enjoy your books!
