I tend to ignore what exactly is in my stack of books to read. It is constantly changing – additions and books/magazines I’ve finished. But its an ever growing pile so I never know what exactly I will find at any given moment. I love books – I love the feel of them and turning the pages. Not that I don’t love my Kindle too – but I grew up reading books in the library and I don’t think I will ever tire of holding them in my hands.
The current stack has a wide variety – I have Fish Nets and Fish Tales because I love short stories. I have a Stephen King book, an historical fiction and a YA book. I’m one of those aunts that likes to give my nieces and nephews books for Christmas – so I read them all before I send them out. I justify that by saying that I don’t want to send them an inappropriate book or one that I don’t like. That’s all true but I also just like to read them.
Other offerings include the current Ellery Queen and Alfred Hitchcock magazines. I also have a few work journals that I read. And I always have some sort of craft book or articles as I work to improve my writing and keep up with what’s happening in the industry. The magazines are technically a separate stack but I consider it all one grouping.
Not too exciting and probably similar to other writers. I always have a few library books around and if the truth be told, I have several shelves in one of my bookcases with history and fiction books that I haven’t read. The stack includes only the current ones.
I’m sure you have an interesting stack – please feel free to share what you are reading. I’m always in search of new authors to read. Happy reading.
