The Books and Authors I Have Gathered Up So Far!

Okay, so nobody panic. I have it all under control. I will be posting below the authors and their books that I have gathered up today, so they know I will be reviewing their work. I do not have a Kindle, but luckily I can use their free app to read the stories. On my Nook HD 🙂 I am currently reading “Freecurrent; The Legacy” by Deanna J. Compton. This is the first of three books in this series, but I will be reading other stories in between. She is an author from my hometown in Michigan, and I met her this summer at a local festival.

I am also still 2 weeks out from finishing my last class of the year for my MBA. So, that does put a small crimp in my reading time. But have no fear; I love to read. I can read a book in a day. I do not read more than one book at a time. I have tried this before, and it just makes both stories less enjoyable. I do not speed read, skip paragraphs, chapters, or go to the back to see how it ends. I thoroughly read each book, enjoying every moment of everything that is going on. For me, reading is my escape; to quietness, different places, different worlds; where I get to meet people that become important to me (we will not even begin discussing my love for Harry Potter!)

I have also sent some of you emails letting you know I have your books, but for some reason yahoo is not giving me the “message sent” box, so I am thinking it is not going through. The emails I forwarded to my work email this morning did not show up either.

If your name and book are below, I have your story. I will be reviewing them pretty close to the order you asked for me to review; if I have a shorter book that I know I can get finished in a sitting, I may put that one in front of another. Please feel free to contact me with any questions. I do not post a review without you seeing it first. If I do not like your book; I will let you know. It is certainly not my intention or plan to destroy anyone’s writing career. But I also cannot consciously give a 5 star review for a book that bored me. You do understand, right?

It is my goal to assist you in fulfilling your dreams of becoming a writer, while fulfilling the thing I love doing more than anything; reading books and the proper use of the English language.

If you feel you have not heard from me in an unordinary long time, do not hesitate to email me. I have a full time job, part time college, 4 daughters, one who homeschools, and a nekkid kitty that demands attention at the drop of a hat.

And just because he is so stinking cute, and has been eyeing me for the past 2 hours from his bed on the top of the fridge while I am shopping on Amazon, here is Bare Bottom Benjamin Blu, or Benny for short. He likes it when I read because  he knows he has a warm lap for several hours 🙂

How Big Is Yours?

Your stack of books you want/need/have to read? What did you think I meant?!

There is no such thing as too many books!
There is no such thing as too many books!

I have been collecting books throughout the summer, knowing I want to read them, and just waiting to have the time to do so. Missing from this stack was the 1st book in the Freecurrent series (Deanna J. Compton) which I am currently reading, but could not locate. Panic! I found it, which just leads me to the fact I have been trying to ignore. That I have a lot of books. And also that I need to organize said books.

I have 6 more paperbacks that I bought at a used book sale at the beginning of the summer, and have not even had the time to give them a second glance. I am almost into week 4 of my 6 week long class on Leadership for my MBA. This is my last class for the year, so I can relax and enjoy the holiday season that is quickly approaching.

What do you have that you cannot wait to read, and cannot yet find the time to do so?
