|Looking for something to read?|
Just puttin' this out here for consideration ;-)
I have a confession to make--one I think I have made before, but it bears repeating: I'm a horrible reader. Shame shame shame on me, I know. It's a lame excuse, but any spare time I have for reading is spent either writing my own books or helping critique the writing of fellow peeps. When I do choose to read, I prefer to read the works of my friends. I love supporting them, and I have many of their books on my Kindle for when I make time to read.
Which brings me back to my lame excuses for not reading.
Because of this, I'm not going to commit to reading 50 books. I'm not even going to pretend I could read half that many. However, I have committed to judging the RITAs this year. I'm waiting with bated breath for my shipment to arrive any day. I'm excited about this, knowing I'm going to get a mystery selection of books I might not otherwise choose to read. And I'm a littler nervous, wondering if I can get all the books read by the deadline.
It's going to force me to be a reader again. Not a writer. Not a writer reading to help another writer improve. Not a writer trying to be a reader but still too caught up in writing to enjoy it. Nope, I'm going to be a reader. And it's going to be awesome!
