  1. Wow, that’s a lot of reading. I don’t think I will be able to keep up, but with your reviews I will know what should be on top of my list.

  2. plotless1 says:

    Add A man call Ova and American Gods. Also plotlessone.com for side reads 🙂

  3. Goodness, that’s quite a list. I usually go for it and read a book in a couple of days, though I have one unfinished read which did not appeal…

  4. Judie Sigdel says:

    Wow! That’s some list! I usually have two novels (one being an audio book that I listen to at the gym) and a spiritual book going at any given time. Looking at your list makes me want more!

  5. rogershipp says:

    I love that fact that you have such a complete reading list!!! I have one as well. I am reading books that Stephen King recommended for novice writers. Just started the list.

    Thank you for taking an interest in our Writer’s Community. I hope you visit often and CLICK THE BLUE FROG to read the prose from our tiny community.

    If you are only a reader, all of our community will welcome your feedback. We love hearing form our readers!

    If you are a writer, please feel welcome to visit here weekly for a stab at finding a prompt that will wet-your-whistle and get some creative juices flowing.

    Castle of the Pearl — That’s a great workbook. It will take you awhile to get through it! Geez you read a lot, girlfriend!

    • Lori Carlson says:

      Thanks, Calen.. I think you recommended it to me. Yeah, I do read quite a bit, just not as much as I need to be. Most of those are requested read/reviews and I am way behind.

What's on your mind? Let me know!
