I Love Books

I love to read.  I get 95% of my reading done via audiobooks from Audible.com. I first got into audiobooks as a way to stay entertained during long runs.  Now I listen to audiobooks as I'm falling asleep or while I'm cooking in the kitchen and find that I get alot of reading done that way.  I was surprised at how many books I read in 2013!

  1. I love to read and blog about books too. I hope you'll stop by my blog and discuss your favorite books with me! Sarah's Key and Gone Girl were some of my favorite books. I loved Snow Flower and the Secret Fan by Lisa See also. Hope you are enjoying The Secret Place. I read In the Woods last year and loved Tana French's writing but the plot kinda fizzled for me at the end. Stopping by from What's for Dinner Monday, but I'm a foodie and book lover too!

    1. Thanks Tanya - I have your blog on my watch list now. I can't wait to hear about future book finds from you! It sounds like we've got some common reading interests...
