Book A Week in 2009: Week 25 - Book 26
Today is the start of Week 25 in the quest to read 52 books in 52 weeks and should have you starting book # 26. Which means -- drumroll, please. We are halfway towards our goal of reading 52 books for the year.
Happy Summer! I'm looking forward to the long days of summer, relaxing on the patio with a glass of ice tea and reading. Aren't you? Even in the midst of vacations, gardening, summer activities, time reading is well spent. I'll tell you a secret...I have discovered that reading is more enjoyable than watching television. Reading engages my mind, taking me away to places I've never been, is entertain and educational. I've just about given up television and occasionally will watch a netflix dvd or some show we decided to dvr. But I discovered I'd much rather been reading. And I have discovered many new to authors along the way.
I recently discovered a new to me author - Carlos Luis Zafon who wrote "Shadows of the Wind" and his recent book which I recently read and reviewed "The Angel's Game." The book was intriguing and interesting. To read an interview with Carlos Luis Zafon head on over to Bookreporter.com or find out more about him, check out his website.
Some great new books are coming out soon including Robert Ludlum's The Bourne Deception
which I just put on my wishlist.
