Oh how relaxing, to spend the evening at home reading. And after that, more relaxing here at the computer while hearing the rain lightly fall outside my window. We had a potluck dinner at church today and a second service that was such a blessing. Then home to rest. I finished 'A Table by the Window' by Lawana Blackwell and enjoyed it.

I am thinking of buying or borrowing from the library...'While We're Apart' by Lynn Austin. She is such a good writer...and I read a few preview pages thanks to Amazon, that got me interested quickly in the story.

When I reviewed 'Lonestar Homecoming' the romantic parts were just not to my liking...nothing really offensive. The author's story line strengthened as the main characters lives were in danger, with a lot of action and suspense at the end.

I got a Kindle for Christmas and have read 10 books already!! I get the free ones that are on Amazon. My favorite so far was 'Free Air' by Sinclair Lewis.

I'm like you... speed reading through those I don't like but I go one further... after a chapter or two I stop reading. They gotta catch me right away!!

I am not a speed reader, rather a slow reader to say the least.

I don't like the sensual descriptions to graphic either. I have thrown a few books in the garbage can, and never finished the book. I don't censor other peoples reading material, but I do censor my own. I think that is the way it should be, because what someone else enjoys reading in none of my business. I tell my friends who borrow my books I am not their censor, if they find something not to their liking they don't have to read the book.

Thank you for visiting My Reading Corner today.

I love books but I am very selective about what I read.
