Book of the Month

Stephen King said, “If you want to be a writer, you must do two things above all others: read a lot and write a lot. There’s no way around these two things that I’m aware of, no shortcut.” 

Now, I write a lot, not that it is saved or published, mostly because I’m generally not happy with the end product, but I do write. And I love to read. So much so that going into a book store means a huge hit to my bank account, and HJ is said we just don’t have room for more books. (I’m seriously thinking of turning our new garden shed into my book room! Shh don’t tell her,)

I, like everyone has favorites; favorite authors, favorite series, favorite characters…as well favorite genre. So I thought it would be fun to see what you all like. I want to engage in conversation, expand my horizons, maybe make some new friends who knows…

I will start with a favorite Author… JOHN SANFORD, and the PREY SERIES. I just finished SILKEN PREY and I’d like to know who all has read it and what you thought of it. What did you like, or dislike about it, what do you think of the character LUCAS DAVENPORT?

Come on tell me what you’re reading…I dare ya! 🙂
