How Much Reading Do You Do?

This time of year is usually crazy for most people and the last thing on their minds is picking up a book and reading it...well for some but not for me. I was able to get in several books this month and the rest of the year and I plan on buying and winning even more books this year...which means more

My husband was at his sister’s dog/house sitting for a whole week this month. So I was able to get things done and at the end of the day read a book before bed. I should say I’m a really fast reader and can read a 200 page book in about 2 hours. The one reason I don’t get a lot of reading done is because he is always talking to me, asking me things, pointing things out on the tv, blah blah blah all night long. LOL I usually read early in the morning while he’s still asleep or just tell him to leave me be for a couple of hours..which seems like pulling teeth. Good grief you would think he’d be happy I was quiet for an hour…but nooooo. He talks more than a giddy teen aged girl…and that’s saying something.

Some of my favorite books this year were…Deep Kiss of Winter by Kresley Cole and Gena Showalter, Dreams of a Dark Warrior by Kresley Cole, The Vampire and the Virgin by Kerrelyn Sparks, Hunger Untamed by Pamela Palmer, The Darkest Secret by Gena Showalter, Primal Bonds by Jennifer Ashley, Hit List by Laurel K Hamilton, Ecstasy Untamed by Pamela Palmer, Dark Predator by Christine Feehan, and Inferno’s Kiss by Monica Burns.

I know there were more but those are the ones I can see on my bookshelf from this year that I read and are keeping. But then I keep all my books so I am going to need to buy more wall hanging corner bookshelves soon to make room for next years books. lol Hubby said he might have to move out if I keep getting books just so I’ll have room…I told him he didn’t but I would need his dresser drawers soon…LOL


  1. Lol my boyfriend is a chatty Cathy as well. Sometimes you would think he was a giddy teenager girl as well. Most of the time I can plot to get some quiet time to read.

    Glad you found some great books this year. :)

  2. I somehow don't think that those who don't read as much as we do can understand that, although as women we multi-task, we do need a little peace and quiet to concentrate. My MIL immediately starts to talk when she sees me open a book! I am impressed that you are able to keep your books, I have run out of room so I am trying hard to only keep a small percentage of the ones I am reading.

  3. I tune out when I'm writing or reading, so no problems for me. I wish I had more time to read. It's been in short supply recently.

  4. I find the time to read by doing it when hubby is
