That's RIGHT book fans... I've read 20 books in 37 days. Most have 200+ pages. I've really done very little else. Certainly not been blogging, although I was blogging nearly daily while I did the 14 Day Challenge (http://thirtydaystoahealthierme.blogspot.com/). Certainly not resolving except to read and read and read!
I mentioned that a fellow reader passed me a book that would be entertaining though not educational and I discovered that it was book 2 in a series of TWENTY! And that my mommy mentioned the very same author when visiting...kismet. So I tried book one from the Library, the title of the Series: Virgin River and I was totally hooked! Here is the author's website with the entire 20 books from this series: http://www.robyncarr.com/booklist.html.
It was like reading a daytime drama. New characters came along, but old ones were revisited, sometimes with expansions of their original tales. Romance. Characters you would like to call friends in a town that although fictional, we all wish truly existed. I was slightly afraid that they would get repetitive, but each story had its own direction, its own creative turns and twists. Yes, detailed sex scenes. I won't lie; it is probably "R" rated writing during those scenes. But I couldn't put my Nook down except to download the next tale and the next and the next until all 20 were finished as of this afternoon.
I have a couple other books around to read, but I really feel like I need to come up for air and connect with my life. However, it has been great while it lasted. Here's to Hero Daddy who didn't say ONCE all WEEKEND as I was plugged in reading, "Don't you have anything else you should be doing?" I guess cause I put great meals on everyday, I was off the hook. And did I mention I LOVED EVERY MINUTE OF IT!
