Books

Tuesday, December 29, 2009

I love books, I love to read...my mother is a librarian so I pretty much grew up in a library (actually I was born in my home town library...it used to be the hospital, so my mom's office is the nursery I was in, lol).

I won't read just any book though, I'm not big on shallow plot lines (sorry Dean Koontz and Dan Brown), I'm also not a fan of romance novels, although some smut novels make me laugh. I don't like books that carry on with description, so Steven King, you're out too! Now I'm making you skeptical that I really do like reading, aren't I, lol. Currently I'm reading books from the 1001 books you must read before you die, and while I'm worried about the story line each time I pick up a new book, since I don't really know what's in store, I have yet to be disappointed. Each book is thought provoking and has me reading where I can't put the book down!

I haven't had a lot of time to read lately, and I'm strongly considering picking up "The Spark" which isn't on my list of 1001 books, lol. With my book snobbery that I maintain, picking up a diet book is far from the norm for me. They are all the same, a dietitian or trainer who adamantly believes his/her method is the be all end all of weight issues, and usually it's some weird hard to follow program where you can get discouraged easily, not to mention it most likely has some health issues attached (like leaving out valuable nutrients, or working your body too hard).

I think "The Spark" is going to be a much different book. Based on what is presented on this website, I know it's going to take into consideration that every person is different and every situation is different. It's going to provide great tips and advice to help improve the health of almost any individual. I think this is going to be a valuable companion to the web site for anyone who loves Spark People. Not to mention the 30% off coupon at Barnes and Noble!! I need to get out of the house, and this makes for a great excuse :)

    We have books in common, but I read all the books that you DON'T. I'm curious about the 1001 books that one should read before they die.

    My 10 year old just read the book "Where the Red Fern Grows" and he was so-o enthused about it that I told him I should read it so we could discuss it. So I did check it out from the library and am on chapter 8 and him and I have had some great discussions about it! Talk about a wonderful experience to have with your child. A book that THEY have read before YOU and to have them know the ending and you not to know is just a role reversal that is quite intriguing.

    Wow..
    I love books too... but must say I have not been into a good book in a long time... just no time!

    Let me know what are some of the best of the best of the books you are reading... I really need to try to pick up a book to read something that is not a child's book... that I read to the grandsons before bedtime... hehehehe!

    Wonderful that you were born in a Library... I don't think there are many that can claim that! You are very unique!
