#SuperSeptember #Readathon Wrap Up

I didn‘t get as far as I wanted with my goals. The husband got me sick towards the end of the week and I had a few miserable days where I couldn‘t read or do anything. I only managed to finish Dandelion Wine on Sunday night. I had made it a little over halfway through Tiny Nightmares, almost finished The Rite, and made it to 44% on Doll House.

Yuki_Onna Hope you'll feel better soon! 😊 6d

1. I don‘t have a preference. I‘ve read a little of both, although I‘ve probably read more post apocalyptic.

2. Alternate History - 11/22/63 (Stephen King)
Post Apocalyptic - The Stand (Stephen King)

✨I‘m a big fan of David Lynch. I got some good tips from this book. After reading it, I forced myself to sit and get into the habit of meditating once a day and it helps me feel much more positive and creative.

✨I‘ve been ready for autumn since the end of winter.

✨I didn‘t do anything exciting this summer. This is a photo I took of a rainbow after a heavy thunderstorm.

Dandelion Wine (Ray Bradbury) - General Fiction. This is a very enjoyable reread. It‘s been a few years since I last read it.

The Rite (Matt Baglio) - Nonfiction/Religion. It‘s a very interesting book about a priest learning to become an exorcist. I read it once a while ago.

Doll House (John Hunt) - General/Horror. I‘m not sure how I feel about this one yet.

I can‘t stand not finishing books. If I‘m reading a book that‘s really thick and I find myself wanting to read other books, or a Kindle book that isn‘t always holding my interest, I‘ll take a short break and read something else or read a chapter a day until I‘m done. I always want to know how it ends. I‘m usually pretty good at picking books I think I‘ll like.

I‘m notorious for rereading books. If I really like a book I will read it many, many times. I‘ve probably read The Eye of the World, Pet Sematary, It, The Shining, Cujo, and The Hobbit at least five times each. I have other favorites I‘ve read two or three times.

I honestly don‘t know. I have unread books I bought at Walden‘s while I was in middle school that I still need to read. A couple of those are Jacques Cousteau The Ocean World, and King Arthur and His Knights by Sir James Knowles. For years I had a habit of buying a small stack of books at a time and not reading them all.

#LittensWantToKnow @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks

DarkMina At one point Laurell K.Hamilton was in talks to do the Anita Blake tv series. She backed out because she was concerned with the creators staying true to her characters and the story. I respect the fact her stories are more important than making money, but I do hope it will happen. 1mo

📖 I like reading to gain knowledge and to get lost in stories.

📖 My mother said she used to read to me when I was little, but I just remember always having a love for reading and books.

📖 I read mostly in the afternoons, and when I can fit it in before bed.
