What are you reading?

What are you reading these days?  Is it good?  I hope so!  I hope that your author uses word in a way that makes you want to keep reading.  I hope the characters, action, dialogue, and description lead you through the problem to the solution.  I hope that not only the character in your novel changes, but that you change a bit too.  We are changed by books.

If your book does not hold your attention, find another book.  That’s right—don’t read a boring book; find a book that is good for you.  When I need a good book I have several places I look.  First of all, I talk to friends and family and get their recommendations.  Then, I look for books written by authors that I already like.  Sometimes I will look at the best seller lists and lists of books that have won awards like Newberry.  Sometimes I will find other lists such as the 100 best of a certain type of books such as science fiction.

When in doubt, check out GoodReads. They always have good suggestions.

The most important idea to remember: find a good book and read. Please send me your recommendations.
