I really miss the time when I could read five books a week – sometimes more. So I have decided to start reading more again. For starters I’ll finish the books I’ve started… On the reading shelf for April I have “Part 2 of The Redemption of Althalus” by David & Leigh Eddings, and “Diamond Sword, Wooden Sword I” by Nick Perumov.
Second after a good kitchen, a large utility room and a walk-in closet, the next most important thing in my dream home is this: a giant beautiful library! Like the ones I’ve seen in many old castles and mansions, with cosy armchairs, countless metres of shelves filled with books all the way up to the ceiling – maybe with a ladder that I could move along the shelves to reach the highest shelves!
When I finally get into reading, there’s hardly no stopping me. During the weekend I read “Three Fates” by Nora Roberts. The novel was pretty good, it was thrilling and romantic, just like it was saying on the cover. And now I have read both “New Moon” and “Eclipse” by Stephenie Meyer in less than 24 hours (last night and now before noon). I don’t usually read about vampires. But in some way, this series caught me.
I finished reading Brisingr this afternoon. I would love to read the next (final) book in the series! I want to know how it ends. I wish I could also write…
