THE SLOW READERS BOOK CLUB

Hello, everybody.  My name is Kathy, and I am a book addict.  I decided to seek help through Books Addicts Anonymous (BAA), when I realized instead of doing dishes, exercising, or sleeping I was devouring books to the tune of about one every day-and-a-half.  

Some people enjoy dressing up and going out to party or meet people for dinner in the evenings, I prefer to slip into a warm pair of jeans, a big bulky sweatshirt, warm thick socks, curl up in the corner of the sofa, cover up with a warm quilt, and reach for my Kindle.  Time passes, tears are shed if the book is particularly sad or particularly happy, and I have been known to laugh wildly when the author writes something funny.  Books are my drugs.  And I love them.  
Here is where I hang out when I'm trying to find a new read:  http://www.ourcitylights.org/2010/01/slow-readers-book-club.html


If you would like to join the fun at The Slow Readers Book Club, click the above link and join up.  We're reading (or have read) Half Broke Horses by Jeannette Walls.  I love finding out what others are reading, and this book club has a lot of people picking books, forcing me to read something I might not have chosen, and their philosophy over there is that people should slow down and read...the name of the club would maybe indicate that they are looking for people who read slowly, but as they say, they do not judge how quickly you read, and if you read fast you're welcome, too.  :0)  I feel at home over there.  
What are you guys all reading right now?  I am big into celebrity autobiographies right now and am almost done with Tommy James' book, "Me, The Mob, and the Music."  Fantastic read! 

Okay, excuse me, I am going to leave the BAA meeting now and go finish my book before going to work. Sorry I interruped.  Sorry, excuse me, see ya, have a good meeting.  Could you please hand me that sweatshirt?

I am really enjoying "Half Broke Horses". I don't read as fast as you do though.

I can't get a copy from the library yet!!!

It's probably just like Nutella. You don't realize how many people read your blog or Facebook page and decide to try something. Before you know it, "Half Broke Horses" flies off the library shelves and Nutella is sold out at Walmart. If my copy was Kindleized, I'd send it to you.

I meant if my copy WAS NOT Kindleized...I'm sure you figured that out. It's early.

I'm reading Tommy's book now. I read Patty Boyd's book not too long ago, and am about to dive in Sylvia Browne's 'All Pets Go To Heaven"
