I've been going through books like they're about to be outlawed! Most of the time, during the dreaded-day-job, I have an audiobook playing. My commute is sixty-five miles each way, sandwiched around another 150 - 200 miles of driving.
I probably shouldn't be complaining about the day job too much if I get to listen to all those great books though! So, from here on out, I'll refer to it as the sometimes okay day job. Or SODJ. It's a clumsy acronym, but it might grow on us. Seems about right.
Anyway, some of the books I've read and listened too are:
College of Shadows - Mark Wells This one was a lot of fun. Set on a college campus in England. Great characters and magical/mysterious tones.
After - Dr. Bruce Greyson A Psychologist's view of near-death-experiences. Very well backed up with personal stories of patients and his battle to be taken seriously by the scientific community. Excellent narration!
The Beautiful Dead - Belinda Bauer A TV reporter becomes the obsession of a serial killer. This one was another great listen. White knuckle action!
This is just a short list of some of the books I've gone through in the last few weeks. I'm a reading junkie in general, and I'm always looking for a new read when I'm not in the middle of writing something of my own.
Which is where you come in.
My "To Be Read" list , believe it or not, has gotten somewhat thin. I'm always looking for something new to read, but, like you, I really want to make it worth my while. If you could suggest something that recently just blew your socks off, I'd like to hear about it.
So help a starving reader out! Reply to this email, and hit me up with some of your most recent favs!
