Day 23 - Books we love

I'm all about books.  Having a chronic illness keeps me from being very active and so most of my time is spent reading.  I love movies but I have to be careful cause of the noise.  I can't take loud sounds, so reading lets me get into these wonderful stories which takes me out of my pain a bit.

I read mostly fiction.  Sometimes I can get into a non-fiction but rarely.  It's hard to pick out what books to share.  I read fantasy, historical romance and lately contemporary romance.  I like mysteries and thrillers.  

Some of my favorite authors are Anne Rice, Nora Roberts, Sarah Addison Allen, Julie Garwood, Diana Gabaldon, Monica McCarty, JK Rowling.  I like Jane Austen and Louisa May Alcott.  Edgar Allen Poe, Emily Dickinson, Mary Oliver. 

Really, there are just too many to name.  I've started keeping a list of the books that I read and I also have a list of the books that I want to read.  It is overwhelming sometimes, how many books out there need to be read by me.  :-)

I'm not feeling well today so this isn't a very good post.  Hopefully tomorrow's will be better.

I'm with you on the mysteries and thrillers and I often enjoy urban fantasy. Books are such a blessing aren't they?
