1 Word+ 1 Word…

I LOVE STORIES!

And I don’t mean what little old ladies call soap operas on afternoon television…

I mean books, short stories, novels…the feel of the paper in my hand, the hardcover…or just the leather cover and plastic casing of my Nook.

So….

Today is simply a reading day. I want to know what you are reading for the New Year…what books have graced your shelves as Christmas presents, books you have always wanted to read…

Question: What are YOU Reading?

  1. I’m co-reading On Writing by Stephen King (figure at some point I should read what really talented folks have to say about the craft) and Shutter Island by Dennis Lehane right now.

    I’ve also got some research reading on interfaith marriage to do, but I tell you what, it is very, very slim pickins in that arena. I’ve got the Strobels’ book here and have a couple others to check at the library, but there is just not much out there, particularly about our situation (same, then someone changed AND one being of no faith).

    My daughter has been reading my Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy books right now and I may have to re-read those when she’s done because, well, they’re AWESOME.

    1. One of the books that I have been meaning to read forever is “On Writing.” Grad school got in the way, but it will be on the Nook soon, I hope.

  2. I’m reading “The Particular Sadness of Lemon Cake.” I was reluctant because I tend to stay away from those “must read” lists. I’m delighted and saddened and loving Bender’s turn of phrase and elegant emotional hinting. Love it.

    1. Just finished The Three Musketeers by Dumas.

      Right now I’m reading Decision Points by Bush, after that Colonel Roosevelt by Edmund Morris (3rd in his series about Teddy), and also Graham Greene’s The Pride and the Glory… Wanna read Tony Blair’s new biography soon, and this year I want to read books 2 & 3 of Mary DeMuth’s Defiance, Texas trilogy.

      I’m also reading my Bible, as you may know from http://kelybreez.com/post/2600029768/my-one-word-is-word

      Let the reading continue!

      1. I am almost ashamed to say I haven’t read The Three Musketeers. But I did read and have taught the The Count of Monte Cristo. I am slowly putting together a list which hopefully the blogging community will hold me to…great book choices.

        1. I had never read it either… But Monte Cristo is one of my favorite books. Wendy over at @weightwhat kinda called me out for not having read Musketeers. So I did.

          Didn’t like it as much as Monte Cristo.
