I like to say that I read in growth spurts. I will go weeks without picking up a book at all, and then I’ll read an entire book or two or three in a short period of time. For example, I read most of The Restless Flame in a deer stand recently.
I am not the most well-read person on the planet, but here are some books I have enjoyed over the last few years that I do think some of you would get a lot out of. And I’d love, love, love to have some good suggestions for books of any kind I can put on my Future Readin’ wish list. I happen to know personally a few readers who are much better read than I am (*Cough, cough* Nicole, Staci, Mary Lou, Kate, Katie, Lucy…)
Part of me hopes that I’ll just absorb what’s in these books by osmosis. Ah…the classic pick-up and put-down and never-finish habit.

I recently got a few ideas from Haley and Christy’s podcast, but I’d truly love to hear book ideas from any of you. Shoot me an email, leave a note on my Facebook page, or post a comment!
