I discovered Goodreads and find I can spend a lot of time there recording the books I have read and then finding lots of new ones to add to my “want to read” list. I very seldom actually ever “read” a book, I normally listen to them. I am incredibly fortunate that Minnesota has a wonderful library system and if a book is on cd it is probably in one of the libraries somewhere in the state and I am able to request it and have it sent to my local branch! Many are also on MP3 as downloads and I don’t even have to leave home to check them out. What a huge savings that is for me, I can’t even begin to imagine what it would cost me to purchase over 200 audio books a year, and that is about how many I listen to in a year’s time!
Here a just a few of the books I finished this last week:
Guards! Guards!, it’s book #8 in Terry Pratchett’s Discworld series. I love this series, there are forty books total and I’ve already decided that when I finally finish the series I will start it over again!
A new author and series I found by looking at what other people have enjoyed on Goodreads is the Inspector Ian Rutledge series by Charles Todd. I just finished A Test of Wills, the first book in the series and enjoyed it a lot.
With audio books I am able to quilt and enjoy books at the same time!
