My Kobo Habit
I believe I have referenced before that I do read much and often.
I have always been one to enjoy a good book or two and after C passed away I began reading as my way to have an out. I was part of the here and now but yet when reading my brain was occupied enough that I could forget the now. I have read hundreds of books in the past 3 years. Usually minimum of 2 per week sometimes more.
Last week was a big week. I have been avoiding the new phenom that is “Fifty Shades Series” by E.L. James. I am one that usually stays off the beaten path and does my own thing. YES, I took the plunge………….I read all three books in the series in less than 6 days. I have created a mess now. I MUST read the new publication on June 18th.
I will say. I NEVER read a book before I watch the movie. That is also the case with this. I guess I have too vivid an imagination. I always find reading the book ruines the movie for me. I am glad I did so this time around. Although, I was not able to restrain myself after Book 1. Good land I had to continue and look where that got me. Now I have read my way out of the series. Hahaha..
I did enjoy the books. I will say the “hype” about the sexual content really did not turn me away. Having read them, there are many author’s that have more explicit content. I did enjoy the story and yes there was a story not just lots of romping around.. Hahaha.. I love a good Maya Banks, Michelle Sinclair, Paula Quinn and the list goes on. I hope that we will see more from E.L. James in the future. They will definitely be on my Kobo Wish List.
I am looking around for a new series to read? Any suggestions, let me know. I do not do well having to wait for the next one to publish. I am too impatient!
