Introducing “A Southern Daydreamer Reads”

Welcome to my book blog A Southern Daydreamer Reads. I started this blog as my blog header caption reads as “my reading-friendly environment hoping to encourage and motivate people to read more”. I want to read more and share my love of reading with others! My other blog, A Southern Daydreamer, tells of my adventures in decorating, gardening, and cooking.

----------------------------------------------------------

Let’s get to know each other:

How many books are you currently reading?

How many books do you read at one time?

What are you reading now?

What do you currently read the most?  fiction, non-fiction, genres (romance, sci-fi, crime/mystery, etc)?

How many books do you have in your to-read pile?

Do you have a “book blog" (Share the link please)

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

My answers:

I usually read one book at a time. I just started “Mermaids in the Basement” by Michael Lee West. I tend to read crime/mystery books. I have at least 5 or 6 I want to read soon. Yes,  I have a book blog….. and you are there (haha)

----------------------------------------------------------

    1. I don't know what happened. I already tried to leave a comment, so you may get 2 from me. Sorry. Yes, I have a list of books and I have a pile of books I want to read. I can only read one book at a time, because my little brain won't keep up with 2 plots at the same time! I'm looking forward to this reading adventure (ha! I think that was the name of a program when I was in school) with you, Susan. laurie

    4. I am so glad you started this blog! I am a writer, a constant reader and a book collector. Right now I am reading Testimony by Anita Shreve.

      I write another blog that is entirely different from the Glorious Rooms blog that you found me on. It is called "Everyone is Entitled to the Scribbler's Opinion", and can be found at http://scribblerets.blogspot.com.

      I keep a list on the sidebar there of what I am reading (and it needs updating, probably). When I first started the blog, I just wrote about whatever I felt like, but I realized I needed more focus, so I split off the dec/food posts into Glorious Rooms. I had thought to do a book blog, but just have not had time to get going -- so I am really glad you did. I look forward to some great discourse.

      I belong to a book club, and that has been an interesting experience, too.

    6. Let’s get to know each other:

      How many books are you currently reading?
      Currently I have 4 going ... The Seven Pillars of Health by Don Colbert, The Power of A Praying Wife by Stormie Omartian, Sexy Hormones by Lorna Vanderhaeghe, and Inkdeath by Cornelia Funke which is our current homeschool read-aloud.


      How many books do you read at one time?
      I generally only have 1 going for myself and 1 homeschool read-aloud at a time.


      What are you reading now?
      Answered in first question.


      What do you currently read the most? fiction, non-fiction, genres (romance, sci-fi, crime/mystery, etc)?
      Probably an equal mix of fiction and non-fiction.


      How many books do you have in your to-read pile?
      Quite a few on my bookshelves and an enormous list of books I'd like to read from the library. So many books, so little time.


      Do you have a “book blog" (Share the link please)
      Yes. http://thenarrowpathbookblog.blogspot.com/ Mostly I'm using it to list what I'm reading for the 100 book challenge (J. Kaye's challenge).

    8. Normall, I read one book at the time, unless I've come across one that doesn't grab me, then I have a backup second read.

      Currently, I'm reading Lost: A Novel by Michael Robotham (it has nothing to do with the TV series!)

      I read fiction the most in the thriller/mystery genre.

      I currently have 3 books waiting to be read on my Kindle.

      No book blog.
