Do you read? Paper or e-reader? What was the last best book you read?
I read although not as much as I would like. I prefer holding the book in my hand. The last best book was probably the last Nicholas Sparks book I read. Love him!
The book I'm finishing now is annoying but I always feel the need to finish reading what I start. I'm reading Shopaholic & Baby (from the Confessions of a Shopaholic series). I thought it would be a light, amusing read & it started that way. Now I'm at the end... she's almost ready to have the baby & her DH has been cheating & wants to leave her. Not the best read for a pg person with crazy hormones... Ugh!
I love to read, but don't have nearly enough time to do so! I have zero preference between a physical book or an ereader - I use both the library and my kindle! I'm currently reading "A Clash of Kings," which is book two of George R. R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire series (his first book, Game of Thrones, was recently a TV series on HBO). I just finished a book for work called Comprehension Connections which, though it sounds boring, was really interesting. It gave me all kinds of ideas on how to get my students and my DD to think in different, logical ways. I like pretty much all kinds of books, so you never know what you'll find me reading!
I so need to start reading again. Confession: I really enjoyed the Twilight series. That's the last book I read though. I need to check out our little library here to see what they have. Our town library is the school library, so it's not huge but at least it's something. I may stop in today after dropping Abby off at school.
I don't read much either. I read a lot when I was pregnant with #2 and #1 STTN briefly. Now if I have time I'm taking a shower or sleeping. I do try to make time to read the sookie stackhouse (true blood) books when they come out though.
I have a Nook but I read paper books too. I recently read the Help and the Hunger Games series - both so wonderful!!!!
I read, although not nearly as much as before dd. Currently reading The Help, which is great, although my tastes do tend towards science fiction and fantasy most of the time.
I love reading! I definitely prefer paper (esp since the one day a week that I may actually get to read is Saturday and electronic items are off limits for Shabbat!) I'm currently re-reading Ina May's Guide to Childbirth. I am in the middle of Mists of Avalon which is interesting, but not my favorite - although I love to read myth and historical fiction type stories. I've been reading with DS (age 7), we just finished LOTR, and are now reading The Hobbit - I know it's backwards... but whatever, he's enjoying it!
I usually get to read while nursing, so I'm starting to put together a reading list for after the birth.
I have a 3 year old so I don't get to read as much as I'd like. I get alot of magazines and read the paper in the morning. The last book I read was Two Kisses for Maddy. I loved it but don't see myself reading anything else for awhile.
I read an "average" amount. The book I am currently reading is, "Keeping our children's Hearts" by Steven and Teri Maxwell. Most of the books I read tend to be in someway related to parenting or homeschooling. I read very little fiction, unless I am pre-reading something for my oldest daughter, or reading aloud to her. Most of the books I read are in paper form. I do have an e-reader, but most of the books that I am interested in reading are not available for an e-reader.
I do when I have time, which is hardly ever! I only do paper books, and I also do books on tape. The book I'm currently reading is Son of a Witch, and I've been reading on it since march lol!
I never have time to read! I wish I did though. Its hard for me because I don't get into a lot of books...I start then if it doesn't peak my interest I give up! I read books on my Ipad now, the last one I read was in July on vacation, "Mrs. Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children". I was actually really good, but too short, I was done in 2days!
I LOVE to read and I read both. I have a Kindle and since I read so much it makes sense that I transferred over to an e-reader. I still buy books of certain types like "Vogue Sewing" was the last book I actually bought, but that's because it has instructions on how to do things. Right now I'm reading "Everyday Girl's guide to Life"- which is about organizing your life to make it easier (trying to de-clutter my life and house before the baby comes) But the last good book I read was Summer and the City: A Carrie Diaries Novel. Some good 'ol summer chick lit to pass the time!
When I get a chance :). Right now I'm reading my real estate law book, easy labor, and another pregnancy book... The other one I recommended to y'all. Can't remember the name... Again lol also reading George Bush's book and Laura Bush's book but they're on the back burner at the moment.
I had a kindle but it broke. Now we have the iPad 2 and I have the kindle app on it so I read my kindle stuff on my iPad.
I have a nook. I don't think I have read a real book (other than my hypnobirthing book) since I got my nook. The last book I read was World War Z and now I heard they are making a movie out of it with Brad Pitt. So excited!! It's a zombie war book so if your into the zombies then you would love it!
I like to read when I have the time. I'm currently reading a book about Anne Boleyn which is pretty good. I prefer historical fiction and some historical books. I also prefer to feel the weight of a book in my hand (for me there's something calming to it.)
I love to read! But I haven't done it as much as I used to since becoming a mommy. Sometimes I will put the kids down and then pick up a book and I'm asleep almost instantly. I love the classics! Right now I'm re-reading Hemmingway's, For Whom the Bell Tolls and Ina Mays Guide to Childbirth. I usually read real books but I have read a few off my iPad, and I read one off my phone that I downloaded to read while waiting at Dr appts lol.
I read mostly paper but I do use my iPad occasionally. Last book I read was a reread. It's called Baby Catcher by Peggy Vincent. All about MW & her career. It's a really great read. Loved it.
I'm an English professor, so you can guess what my first answer is. That being said, I'm more of a writing professor. Most of the books I read deal with pedagogy, theory, ie work. I haven't read a fiction book for pleasure since this summer. When I did, it was a collection of short stories by Isaac Asimov. As for World War Z, I LOVE zombie books, and I love zombie movies. Totally excited--except for the Brad Pitt part. :rolleyes:
I LOVE to read....I just do paper books as I don;t have any electronis for it. Anyway my favorite Authors are James Patterson and Patricia Cornwell.
It is super hard to find time to read these days but I have gotten a few books in this year. Mostly late at night when DH and the kids are sleeping. Then I get wrapped up in my book and am up to 2 or 3 in the morning for a few days to finish it.
Anyways, I just finished "Water for Elephants" and I totally loved it, my kind of book, lots of drama and adventure and strong characters. Highly recommend it!

I LOVE that book! Highly recommend it! But maybe not in the 3rd trimester, there are a few unpleasant stories in there and we are all at majorly heightened emotional states...
Water for Elephants was also a great read. Intense, and engaging. I like her writing style a lot.
Agreed. Because I've read it before I kind of skipped those parts this time.
I've been reading your blog too. Love it!:cool:
