My New Passion

My New Passion

Ummm.  Just the thought of diving into this delicious romance novel I picked up from the library has me on the edge of my seat.  I’m typing fast and hoping I can spend a few minutes finishing up the current chapter before hitting the sack.  It’s certainly not what I’d call a trashy novel and it doesn’t boast a cover shot with a half naked women in the cluthes of a muscular stud like my mother used to read—  not that I’m saying I wouldn’t read those too. What I do know is that this is written art

I am literally wondering what Hunter and Loretta, an indian and white woman in Catherine Anderson’s Comanche Moon, are doing while I’m blogging, or picking up kids or running errons.  I even read while the children were at the playground today.  It was fenced in and small so I didn’t worry too much. Hey, I’m about as addicted as it gets right now.  I love it!  A new passion that will actually help with writing. Now I know how my mother felt when she’d always have her nose in a book.  I have admitted to being a romantic at heart, but I never read any love stories.  I don’t know why I totured myself with the wait.  The best part of all is that I came across the book because it is the prequel to Comanche Heart.  I wanted to read the latter because it was on the library’s summer reading list for adults.  I placed the book on hold and it took months for me to get my turn.  When my two weeks were up I tried to renew it because I was only on chapter 4 and really enjoying it.  But just as I figured. Someone else had the book on hold so I had to give it up.  I returned to the library immediately so they could have their turn.  Guess I learned my lesson about waiting to long before getting started on a good read.

 I really didn’t want to read Comanche Heart as much when I found out Comanche Moon came first, so while trying to console myself over losing Comanche Heart I searched for it’s prequel and found there was no waiting queue for it.  I guess everyone had read it and was done.  I put it on hold and then waltzed right over to the library to pick it up.  A broad smile crept across my face as I dropped it in my shoulder bag and exited the building.

At this point you may think I’m crazy but my cousin and I bonded over our love for books this weekend and she is even more gunho than I.  Plus I think her book is longer.  She’s reading  Eclipse, book number 3 in the Twilight Saga by Stephanie Meyer. When we’re both done, maybe we’ll play switcheroo.  So exciting!

Reading is fun

Reading is fun
I finally did it!  After all the years during high school spent loathing books even though I took AP level courses, I  now have the urge to read.  My poor mother must have raked her brain wondering how I didn’t inherit her love for reading.  I passed my high school courses because I had to. I remember reading A Farewell to Arms in one night — the test was the next day. But now I really, really want to read.  Obviously, it’s hard to find the time nowadays with the kids, house and husband.  Plus every now and then, my toes need a good soak and a fresh coat of polish.Smile  I really felt the call to read a few years before the kids arrived.  Eric would drop me by the metro, so I took the train to work and I’d read then.  On the way back home I took the bus and the train, so I had even more time, but somehow I only fit in two or three books over a year and a half.  After the first baby arrived, nursing her afforded me another book.  It’s been nothing since then.  I even canceled all magazine subscriptions because I couldn’t keep up with those either.  It was sad.  But no more!  I went to the library yesterday without the kids and it was so nice!  I needed to do some research so I can keep hope alive with my freelance career.  So I figured I needed to select some adult reading to help my novel writing skills blossom.  Even though, I’m probably a natural Wink, all writers MUST read.  So it’s business and pleasure for me. I started a book last night.  It’s called Slummy Mummy by Fiona Neill. I happened upon it by chance and it sounded funny.  So far so good.  I’ll let you know how it turns out.
