So I will be posting some pages that I have done these last few months!
Hope you enjoy them!
READ! Roses by Leila Meacham (I do recommend this book! Loved it and couldn't put it down! Read it in one week!) Full of Love by Nancy O'DellTangled by Carolyn MacklerThe 39 Steps by John BuchanReclaiming Lily by Patty LaceREAD! all these things i've done (chocolate is contraband; caffeine is illegal; the city is riddled with crime;) I just had to read this book by Gabrielle Zevin when it arrived at the library. I love chocolate and coffee...so I had to take it home. I'll be offering it to our High School students, or I'll just put it on display and see how long it takes to be checked out...now that would be interesting to see! LOL!As you can see, I read TWO of them and loved them! The other's...well...life just got in the way...and I love reading, but there was just too much other things going on. I did read one more book, but the title escapes me just now...and I have plenty of reading materials for the holidays...but also many other things I have to do.
How much do book reviews influence your decision to acquire and/or read a book?And my answer is:
If a friend or family member recommends a book I'll read it. I don't always like the book but hey, if my friends like it I ought to know what they are talking about. i have only once not liked a book a friend suggested to the point where I didn't finish it. Otherwise I just finish the book 'cause maybe it'll take a turn...
I also listen to authors talk sometimes and if they talk about a book I am inclined to just see if it is good (as I am doing with 'Rose's and '39 Steps' which are on my list), I also will read a book before I see the movie (just read 'The Help' so I can go and see the movie, or, as with 'Pillars of the Earth' I watched the show and then got the book and the sequel to read. They also were recommended by my sister after I talked to her about the show.
I like that you are asking questions and we have to find something to write about ourselves. There are some interesting view points on here!
