Sandi Shilhanek | READ ME RIGHT NOW!

May 3, 2009

Recently I attended a book signing for Kate Jacobs the author of several books including The Friday Night Knitting Club, Comfort Food, and Knit Two. Ms. Jacobs was promoting the paperback release of Comfort Food, and as she read a scene from the book it made me want to race home, and find the book in my TBR stack (well, really on my Kindle, but we won’t argue the semantics of it), and begin reading immediately.

What you ask stopped me from doing just that? Two things…one I was already in the middle of a great romantic suspense, Behind the Shadows by Patricia Potter, and two I have review books that I am committed to getting finished before I do any pleasure reading. Can you hear the big sigh I have given out for not being able to just read whatever book is sounding good to me at any given moment?

One solution that I have come up with is to do the audio version of the book yelling READ ME RIGHT NOW!!!! However, that’s not really the best solution either because my audio pile is also growing, so when I hear about a good book that I have on audio I want to listen to it immediately!

As you can see I have a dilemma…it’s a good one in that I have lots of choices, but it’s a bad one in that I have lots of choices. What about you? Do you have read one book, and know immediately which book is going to be next? Is there anything that can derail your reading train? What are you reading? What will be next?

Until next week I wish you happy page turning.

    When I am reading a book which captivates me I immediately need another one to take its place. I am caught up within the pages of the story and have already selected a new one which is equally enchanting.

    I seem to wander from book to book and author to author. I often read more than one book at any given time mostly because I leave my books all over the house and in the car so grab the closest one. But a new release by a favorite author will get my immediate attention.
