#1496 My Current Reading List

I'm a reader. I love to read, especially mysteries. "Whodunits" are my favorites. I do not like mushy romances, horror, spy, biographies or history books. BUT I have made exceptions in the past due to recommendations. (Some novels are "OK.")

I just thought I would share the list I'm working on, as they are all recommendations. I do not usually give my reviews. I rarely read reviews either but form my own opinions. Just because a book is on the New York Times Best Seller List doesn't mean I will like it - at all!

Skimming a book isn't my style. I read every word right to the end even if I don't really care for the book. AND... if I find a misspelled word I mark it with a circle and with glee, go on! Misspelled words jump out at me - REALLY. One of my personal pet peeves is misspelled words. The next is the changing of words such as vegetables into veggies. I hate the use of "so fun" as it is constantly used now. I was taught that fun is a noun not an adjective. "So" is a lot of things, including an adverb. "So" as an adverb goes well with the determiner like "much." I was a good student in English class. Oh well... Lecture over.

This is the list...

P.S. My e-mail user name used to be "bookworm" before I had to change it to "nookworm." I think I remember that was because I changed servers, and there were other bookworms but I'm not sure. Anyway I like "nookworm" and also have "crannynanny" as another.
