I have to admit I am a shocker when it comes to reading... its a bit like a drug, or that cake sitting in the fridge... you know... ok I'll just read for 1/2 and hour... oh maybe another 5 minutes and before I know it is 2am. So when I get like this I have to go Cold Turkey so I banned myself from the library for a while and I will not be downloading any books from itunes or kindle.
So what is my drug of choice, well it is Sci-Fi Fantasy, other genre's I am fine with can just read for 1/2 and hour and then put it down go to sleep but give me a good Sci-Fi or Fantasy novel and I am a lost cause. My introduction to Sci Fi was John Wyndham as a kid, Day of the Triffids then I went on to read all of his novels.
I have to admit that I hated reading when I was in high school but once I started working, I had to do something on the bus trip to and from work and books were cheap back then and I filled my bookshelves with them. Back then I was into Anne McCaffrey novels.
Yesterday I finished another novel by Robin Hobb, she usually writes Trilogies and luckily for me the latest one isn't out yet otherwise I would still be inthralled. Though I admit to looking today into another one of her Trilogies that I have yet to read.... but I think I have too much to do in the next week before we go on our trip, maybe I will get the first one to read on the plane.
Maybe this week I will just read a classic... again, I know how they all end and I can pick them up or put them down whenever I want.
So now you know I am a bit of a geek, if you hadn't already guessed it by my love and need of technology this would confirm it.
