A Meme on Reading
I picked up this meme from Book View Cafe. I’ll post my answers here. If you want to play, go ahead and post on your blog or leave a comment with your answers. If you post on your blog, let me know in the comments that you did it!
• What are you currently reading?
Firebird by Jack McDevitt. This is not quite true, since I’m not reading it at this time. Let’s say I’m reading it, but taking a break. This is because it’s on my husband’s Kindle, so if I want to read it, I have to wait until he’s reading a printed book. I started it several weeks ago, but when we went on vacation, my husband needed his Kindle back.
This infuriates me, so PUBLISHERS – are you listening? It’s total bogus nonsense to not let people share their OWN purchased ebooks with members of their family. After all, we are sharing the book with each other. You’ve just made it difficult for us to do it. And guess what? We’ve only purchased one print copy of earlier Jack McDevitt books and we shared those. You didn’t make us each buy a copy before both of us could read it. Why are you trying to do that with the ebooks? Which, by the way, you aren’t selling for very much less than the print book.
For the record, the publisher in this case is Ace Publishing. A hearty Pfft to them.
Wow. So sorry about the rant. I had no idea I was going to do that when I started this. On to the second question!
• What did you recently finish reading?
I just finished Craving by Kristina Meister. I gave it 5 stars, and I don’t do that very often. I won’t say it was perfect, but that’s not what 5 stars means. It means I thought the book was amazing. It’s a fascinating twist on vampires. For a minute or two, I was afraid it would turn out to be horror and I’d have to put it down. But nope – just suspense, a little gore, and a lot of interesting characters.
• What do you think you’ll read next?
While I’m waiting for my husband’s Kindle (ahem), I’m going to start reading Morrigan’s Cross by Nora Roberts. I’ve never read anything by Nora Roberts, so this will be a new experience for me. I’ll let you know what I think!
Okay, your turn. I want to hear from some of you quiet people, too. No hiding behind your mouse!
