Antique books II, Prague (print) -- rogerjporter
Reading has always been something that I have identified myself with. In high school I'm pretty sure I was known as the girl who always had a book (or three) in her backpack and always preferred reading to actually listening to the lecture. As I got older things didn't change much, though I must admit I became a little bit lazier when it came to my book selection. I am a creature of habit. I admit that I read the same books over and over, struggling to leave my favorites behind. I am terrified of trying new authors (silly, I know) and worry that I will hate the piece. I know I am missing out on so much amazing work! I am making a point to start a book list, and work my way through it. Right now I am reading Harry Potter, book 5 and Pride and Prejudice. After these, I'm not sure yet!
A few I am interested in:
The Dry Grass of August -- Anna Jean Mayhew
The Art of Racing in the Rain -- Garth Stein
The Perks of Being a Wallflower -- Stephen Chbosky
I love all types of reads, fantasy and period work are some of my favorites. I also love gritty, creepy stories and am really wanting to find a few good mysteries.
What are some of your favorite books? Any suggestions to add to my list?
