#ThursdayThoughts: Books, Books & More Books!

Good Morning Friends!

I've joined up with Debdatta Dasgupta Sahay and a bunch of other authors for an online event--the International Authors Day blog tour that began on Monday (the 14th) and will end on Friday the 18th (tomorrow). Each of the authors involved will tell you about their reading pleasure and ALL will be giving away books and other prizes so be sure and visit each blog!

Now about my reading habits....

I began reading around age four and am quick to admit I am a book junkie. At one time I owned a 6' x 6' book shelf filled to overflowing! That's been narrowed down over the years but books surround me wherever I am. I often say my TBR list is so extensive even my Kindle is getting heavy LOL!

Confession Time: Where others go on eating or drinking binges, I go on reading binges and there is no amount of purging to cure me of this addiction! 

Romance is my favorite genre of all times and with the exception of erotic, I read it extensively. Although I write Inspirational/Christian, I read across the board. Nora Roberts is my all-time-favorite author in the traditional romance market. Francine Rivers, Julie Lessman and of course my fellow Pelican Book Group authors top my list of favs in the Christian market. But that's not all!

I also read a ton of spiritual based nonfiction books. Max Lucado, Joyce Meyer, Joel Osteen are my favorites in traditional Christian nonfic, but Dr. Wayne Dyer & Marianne Williamson top the list of non-traditional spiritual authors, although I do enjoy Eckhart Tolle, Doreen Virtue, Neale Donald Walsch and many others. In fact, I'll read just about any author when it comes to spiritual literature.

Well now you know my deep, dark secret: I am a book-a-holic and proud of it!
