She's a bookish sort of woman....

Yesterdays blog about feeling blue at the end of a good series inspired some questions as to what I've been reading.

Left Brain and I read all sorts of things from the classics to the stupid.  We read for entertainment mostly but love historical novels where some history lessons are woven into a good story.

The series I've been reading lately were the Lena Jones series by Betty Webb.  The heroine reminded me a bit of Stephanie Plum in the Janet Evonovich series.  I adore her wacky ways and it never fails to make me laugh.

Right now I'm working my way through the Tess Monaghan series by Laura Lippman.  I know I've read some of these before, but since I can't recall which one I'm just plugging my way through the series.  It never hurts to reread a book you enjoyed in the past and often I glean new perspectives as I age and mature.  Well, maybe mature is too strong a term.

I've started to write up my adventures as an Indian Squaw and plan to release it in small snippets in the blogs to get feedback on writing style and is this anything that people would have an interest in reading more of.

It has been my goal to be a writer at some point and the blog has been a great warm up as if forces me to write almost every day, getting me into one of my better habits I've developed.  If only it could counter so many of the bad habits I've developed over my lifetime.

So that's what's been on my Kindle lately.  If anyone has books (especially series) they have enjoyed, please let me know.  We are always looking for new authors and are open to anything short of zombies and vampires or out and out horror.

Long Live the Queen of the Kindle


  1. When you write up your story, I will be happy to review it for you.
    Have you signed up for the free ebook programs? Kindle has one, and there are several others. If you need some suggestions, I can give you some.

  2. I get the free (and low cost) books from Amazon kindle on my laptop and on my tablet. The ap is free, and they send you new lists almost every day. As for your new writing project, I can't wait for it!!!

    I do believe you were born to write a book (or more). Your style is quite unique and very enjoyable.

    As for the skydiving, I would love to be able to do it. BUT, I'm chcken so I guess I'll never experience that thrill. lol. Have a safe journey North. My congratulations to your hubby for his award.

    p.s. I hope everything you folks chatted about was good. lol.
