This Blog Has Moved!

I moved my blog on New Years Day, 2010. If you haven't come to see my new blog, head on over HERE now. This blog will be available for archive reading but I won't be posting here anymore. I hope you'll join me at my new bloggy home!

p.s. I am slowly but surely moving all the blogs I follow over to the new blog, so if I haven't come to visit you for a while, my advice is to leave a comment on my new blog, so I don't miss you in the shuffle!

About Me

My photo
I am a bereaved mother and wife. I began this blog to help me look for the "good things" in life after my daughter, "Babybear", died in July 2005. Three years later, her daddy, my husband, "Bear", died in November 2008. (You'll find a link to their stories on my blog) And now, as difficult as it is, I continue to look for the good things in my life as I learn my new normal with my pup, "Furrybear", at my side. And the angels on my shoulder...

Speaking of books...

Speaking of books, I am always on the look out for more books to read. What are some of your favorite titles? What kinds of books do you read? Which books do you recommend?

Looking forward to hearing your replies! :)

See, this is totally dependent on what you like to read. I like to read sci-fi and fantasy, and that's about it. :-) I'm not going to go out and read some Jane Austin novel or any "good" crap like that.

You hate Harry Potter, right? :-) So that's out.

For fantasy, I'd recommend Melanie Rawn's Dragon Prince series (there are 6 books). She has other titles that I like too.

I also like Fred Saburhagen's Swords series. Those are cool. And Robin Hobb is GREAT.

And the Amber Series. I have all 10 books if you want to borrow. :-)

anyway, those are my recommendations, but you don't have to take my word for it... (do do do!) (butterfly in the sky, I can fly twice as high... take a look, it's in a book, reading rainbow.....)

Hmm. I too like the classics like Jane Austen, the Bronte sisters, Mark Twain, Charles Dickens, etc. For more contemporary fiction I don't read much of it these days but I liked a few series, such as the Alex Delaware mysteries by Jonathan Kellerman, and John Updike's "Rabbit" series.

Mostly these days I read true crime (favorite author: Ann Rule) and biography/history type books. I just bought a copy of "Inside the Third Reich". It's a huge book but it's supposed to be the definitive history of the Nazi regime. I'm afraid to take it anywhere though because it has a huge swastika on the front cover...maybe I'll cover it up!
