Whatcha Reading?

Judy, over at Patchwork Times, has started a new weekly feature called, "Whatcha Reading?" Fantastic ! She wanted to do something on Tuesdays and had readers submit ideas for the topic. By vote, What Am I Reading won. Hurrah ! It was the one I voted for. I love to read. It is my first love.

I can't remember when I didn't love to read. By the time I was in third grade I was reading anything I could get my hands on. By fifth I was heavy into Nancy Drew. I bought my books from the Sears Catalog. We lived in rural Northern California and had to drive for almost an hour to get to the Sears outlet to pick up our orders. Guess what I did on the way home?

Today my loves are mysteries, biographies about normal people going through extraordinary times, history, Church books, young adult fiction, well-written novels and the list goes on.

Right now I am reading one of my favorite authors, Sue Grafton. She writes the alphabet mysteries. I started right at the beginning with her first mystery, A is for Alibi. I've worked my way through, waiting impatiently for each new volume to come out. I'm reading V is for Vengeance. I'm almost through and can't wait until tonight when I can get home and finish it.

I don't know what's up next. I honestly have a stack of books, waiting to be read, two feet high next to my bed. And I still keep perusing books sites thinking to buy more !

Coast on over and take a looksie at what others are reading at Patchwork Times (click here).


  1. I remember my mom bought me a bunch of the Nancy Drew books when I was around 10, unfortunately I could never get into them! I enjoy mysteries, too, I'll have to try Sue Grafton out!

  2. I grew up reading Nancy Drew too and I'm sure that contribues to my love of mysteries - particularly the "cozy" mystery genre. I've read all of Sue Grafton books in order. I love when I find a new author with lots of already published books so I can start at the beginning. I've forgotten what the last Sue Grafton book was that I read. Gotta check my history at the library --


I love comments. They make me smile and feel warm and fuzzy. To show you my appreciation, I try to answer everyone's comment. :)
