What I’m Reading

Someone recently asked me to talk about what books I am reading.  I have had a Sony E-Book for about 6 years…before all of the Nooks, Kindles, etc.  So I have about 5-7 books that I am reading at any given time…there is something about having options no matter where you go…but, too…there is something about holding a book and smelling the pages…as well.  My friends used to make fun of me because I would go away for a weekend and I would have a change or two of clothes, but I would have 4-5 books…like I was going to read them all…like I was going to read any.  Books are a comfort to me, you may understand what I am talking about.  No matter where you are or what is going on, a book can be an escape…a feeding of the mind when all else doesn’t feel good.  A book is like a piece of candy for the soul…another next word to keep you focused in the now…a bright thought.  Ok, I will stop, but if you know me…you actually can see the truth in these words.

So, here are some of the books I am currently reading:

Children’s Books:

  1. The Penderwicks: A summer tale of four sisters, two rabbits, and a very intersting boy, Jeanne Birdsall(Yearling)
  2. Bink and Gollie, Kate DiCamillo and Alison McGhee (Candlewick Press)
  3. The Candymakers, Wendy Mass (Little Brown Books)


  1. Petals From The Sky, Mingmei Yip
  2. Hearts on a String, Kris Radish
  3. Heart and Soul, Maeve Binchy
  4. Belong to Me, Marisa de los Santos


  1. Defy Gravity, Caroline Myss
  2. The Emotion Machine, Marvin Minsky
  3. Peace From Broken Pieces, Lyanla Vanzant

How is that for starters?  I always invite a dialog about any of the books if you want to send in comments or questions.  Happy reading…
