Either, Or

Posted under Reading Tuesdays 7 Comments

For today’s Reading Tuesday, I’m going to fire off some questions at you. ūüôā¬† It’s all about your current preferences…

  1. Print newspaper or online news?
  2. Magazine or play with phone (while in a waiting room)?
  3. Thriller or sci-fi?
  4. Real world or utopian society?
  5. Fiction or non-fiction?

Have a great day, everyone!

Books, books

Posted under Reading Tuesdays 10 Comments

I’ve been managing to write almost every day I’ve been away, but reading? Not so much.¬† It’s like any down time I have, I’m in front of the computer trying to hit my page count for the day.

Surely though, some of you are reading. If so, what are you onto now? And as a bonus question, if you could only take one book (either one you’ve read or want to read) with you on a year long trek around the world, what would you choose and why?

Pet Peeves and More

Posted under Reading Tuesdays 6 Comments

bookbookmarkSince I’m away from home, I’m not hitting the gym every day. And since I’m not hitting the gym every day, I’m not reading as much. However, I did get a little elliptical time in at the fitness center here on the property yesterday morning, so I can say I’m still actively reading Sophie Kinsella’s Shopaholic Ties the Knot.

Any free time I get is being spent writing.

So a few things for you this morning…

*What are you reading? Are you enjoying it? What is a pet peeve of yours in the genre of books you read? Anything that drives you batty?

Current Reads

Posted under Reading Tuesdays 9 Comments

My current read at the gym is the 3rd book in Sophie Kinsella’s Shopaholic series (thank you, Andrea!), Shopaholic Ties The Knot.

They’re fun books, and fun is good. Especially as my own workload ratchets up¬†ten-fold these next few months.

So what are you reading? How’s it going so far?

Reading Time

Posted under Reading Tuesdays 8 Comments

dontletgoMy day has been rerouted a bit thanks to a “check engine” light that reared its head on my dashboard before I left for Canada last week. Joy, right?

So I’m taking my laptop to the dealership and will do my day’s writing from there. But since it’s Tuesday, I want to check in with you and see what you’re reading this week.¬†¬† I’m reading Don’t Let Go on my e-reader at the gym…

In My TBR Batter’s Box

Posted under Reading Tuesdays 3 Comments

I haven’t been reading the past few days mostly because I haven’t been at the gym (yes, I know, I must correct that). When I do return to my routine tomorrow, I’ll be starting the new Harlan Coben book (yay!). I’ll also be re-reading my own book, Portrait of a Sister as part of the copy edit phase.

So what are you reading?

What I’m reading:¬†¬† Shopaholic Takes Manhattan by Sophie Kinsella.

What I watched:¬† Last week, I saw American Assassin in the theater (based on the late Vince Flynn’s Mitch Rapp series). I really enjoyed the movie.

Up next:¬† I think I’ll hit pause on the Shopaholic series to read Harlan Coben’s latest release, Don’t Let Go.

Up next at the movies:  Stronger.  I will see this before the week is over (been waiting for months).

Your turn.¬† What are you reading? What’s next? Have you seen/or are you planning to see any movies?

First in a Series

Posted under Reading Tuesdays 9 Comments

confessionsSo today, at the gym, I finished up Confessions of a Shopaholic (Sophie Kinsella).¬† It’s apparently the first in a series, with this particular title actually made into a movie a few years ago. I enjoyed it enough that I think I’ll be moving on to the second in the series tomorrow.

What are you reading this week?

An Enhanced Escape

Posted under Reading Tuesdays 5 Comments

bookquoteBefore I headed out to Wyoming, I stopped by the bookstore and picked up two new books, one of which was mentioned by one of our regular readers/posters here over the past few weeks.

I’ve Got Your Number by Sophie Kinsella¬†was over 400 pages, but my plane ride there/home and a sleepless night during my daughter’s evacuation allowed me to finish the whole thing.

So what are you reading this week?

What I’m Reading

Posted under Reading Tuesdays 3 Comments

Right now, I’m currently reading several things at the same time (a rarity for me). I’m sure, once I get back to writing next week, the ability to do that will be gone. For now though, here’s what I’m working on and where…

*On my e-reader at the gym:  Wedding Duress (by me)

*Staring up at me from my couch:  My Not So Perfect Life by Sophie Kinsella

*Work-wise:  Reading the 2nd half of my own Portrait of a Sister for editing purposes

*On my computer:  An email I got via my website from someone who is not happy that the lead character in one of my series apparently shares the same name as one of their loved ones (nope, not kidding).

So there you go. That’s what I’m reading.

Your turn…
