I love to read. I will read just about anything. I remember when I was little I would read the back of the cereal box at breakfast to have something to read. I read fiction and non-fiction. I read contemporary novels and classics. I have a few favorite authors (Austen, Hawthorne, the Bronte Sisters) and probably only two that I don't like at all, Melville and Stienbeck. (Sorry to all their fans! Just my personal preference.) Most of the time this desire to read anything is good because I never run out of things to read. However, sometimes it is a bad thing. Right now it is a bad thing. I am really, really, really wanting to read about 6 books right now. It is hard enough to read one book with my schedule, but 6! That is just impossible. So I will have to be patient. This seems unfair. I don't want to be patient. I want to lock myself in a room and do nothing, but read until I read them all. Somehow I don't think this will happen, but I would like to do that. So in the meantime, I will try to rank the books I want to read. That is hard, but I think I have done it.
1. 1-2-3 Magic: Effective Discipline for Children 2-12 By Dr. Thomas W. Phelan
2. The Gift of an Ordinary Day: A Mother's Memoir By Katrina Kenison
3. The Strong Willed Child By Dr. James Dobson
4. The Queen of the South By Arturo Perez-Reverte
5. Raising Boys by Dr. James Dobson
6. The Titan's Curse By Rick Riordan
There are also 3 more that are a little more distant, but on my radar.
1. The Last Days of the Romanovs: Tragedy at Ekateringburg by Helen Rappaport
2. The Fragile Absolute: Or, Why is the Christian Legacy Worth Fighting For? By Slovoj Zizek
3. Engaging Biblical Authority by William P. Brown
4. Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte (rereading)
So I guess from the titles you've noticed that my reading preferences are a little varied. :) What about you? Is there one specific type you read or do you just read anything? Do you have a favorite author?
