Books!!

It is so hard for me to categorize books. Should I just go alphabetically? By genre? Yeah, I just don't know.

I tried to give this list some sort of order to it... but in the end I broke down and it became categorized like "Author I Love, Whose Books I Read a TON." Anyway, take a look at this and just pick and choose however you'd like. Books are great and the following are some favorites of mine:

As you can see, I read a lot. And I'm proud to read from a variety of genres. The books I've listed are mostly the books currently on my shelves. More often than not, I get books from the Library so I don't have more books than I know what to do with. I absolutley hate moving books from apartment to apartment. I hate having six different books shelves in my living that fail miserably trying to keep all my books organized! So that is why I'm a strong advocate of the library. Even if it's so ghetto that I get asked for money every time I go.

Please, if you have any suggestions for me leave them in my comments. I always love investigating new authors.

I recommend checking out Kelly's blog because she has a link to her book club, Spotted Puppy. There are even more suggestions there as well as discussions about books currently being read in the online club. Have fun!
