B is for Books
Oh, books. How do I love thee? Let me count the pages...
I've loved books since I was little. I remember going to the library as a very small child and picking out books to take home. I absolutely loved to read. I read all of the time. That hasn't stopped as I've gotten older. Many of the books I read when I was little are still favorites that are on my bookshelf.
I read all sorts of books. Throw a genre at me and I'll rattle off a list of books I've read. My dad would listen to Tom Clancy books on tape when I was little. Consequently, I love Tom Clancy. We own most of his novels. I love the suspense, the intrigue, the elaborate plot building, the adventure. That (I think) shows up in my writing. Another "non-girly" book series I read is the Dirk Pitt series by Clive Cussler. I know, I'm not like most girls!! :) And that's okay. I like to read books that my husband enjoys as well. We read many of the same books and talk about them ad nauseum.
I read lots of contemporary YA books as well. Most are from recommendations from friends and book bloggers. If there was a fire in my house, I'd be SO SO sad because I'd lose hundreds of books.
I love books! :)
