What am I reading?

I am a writer and I like to help other writers, so I post a lot of things for writers to use on my blog.  I also have readers of my blog, so I must serve then also with things to read about.  I am hoping that my readers are writers, and my writers are readers.

I am a reader, too. Last year I read over 52 books.

What do I read? I read a lot fantasy and science fiction novels.  I will read an occasional romance.  I like the Reader’s Digest for a quick read. I like the San Diego Zoo’s Zoo News. I have a zoo membership, so the magazine comes for free. It hs information about the zoo’s animals and horticulture, plus upcoming events.

What authors do I enjoy reading?

Mercedes Lackey is one of my favorite authors. She has strong female characters in her books. Jolene is her latest. It is a book set in the old coal producing times of Tennessee. The title character is not the main character in the story, but she does cause some trouble for them when she tries to help.

Anne McCaffrey’s Dragons of Pern is an excellent set of books to read.  Her son Todd McCaffrey cowrote with her and has written several books in the series himself. Find a timeline on line and read the books in order of the timeline.

Terry Goodkind writes the Sword of Truth Series.  A series of books that takes world building into a new realm. I fell in love with his main characters Richard and Kahlan. Goodkind puts them through hell as they try to save their world several times from villains that either want to take over the world or want everyone dead.  Excellent fantasy adventure reads starting with Wizard’s First Rule.

What I am reading right now?  I finished The Lion of Cairo a few nights ago, then plunged into the military sci fi adventure Death Lands. 

What’s next?

It depends on what I find on my bookshelves. I have two bookshelves I am attempting to empty of the one book authors I have bought. I also have ARCS to read for other authors. I also have books on my Kindle app. I get a lot of free books on it.
