I’m in reading mode this week

I just finished Born to Rule: Five Reigning Consorts, Granddaughters of Queen Victoria by Julia P. Gelardi last night and started The Burning Wire by Jeffery Deaver on the iPad.

I’m in the middle of The Sheen on the Silk by Anne Perry on the Kindle (poolside reading).

And I’m listening to my first ever audiobook while I’m knitting – Persuasion by Jane Austen.

Seems like quilting is not the only hobby for multitasking. Is it any wonder I’m not making much progress on my AppleCore?

What are you reading right now?

    I’m listening to A Certain Justice by John Lescroart in the quilting studio and reading (actual page turning) Vanish by Tess Geritsen (sp?). I have listened to several classics whilst quilting and I love it! I sometimes find it easier to listen to that older style language than to read it!

  • Lindsey F.:

    I just finished The Rosetti Letter by Christi Phillips and am about to start The School of Essential Ingredients by Erica Bauermeister. Also on my reading list are more in the Sister Fidelma series by Peter Tremayne – I’m up to Act of Mercy – and The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larsson.

  • “Fear the Worst” Linwood Barklay(sp?) Fun read and he has a bunch of books so it’s a find for me.
    I loved Big Canoe and would go back in a minute. We had a time share through our cousin and the place was just so pretty.

  • Amy:

    HOW?
    How can you read more than one book at once & How can you do anything else while reading.

    I am so not a multi-tasker…

    I read 1 book at a time, in a quiet location that does not have distractions.

  • How funny, I’m listening to Persuasion right now as well. I downloaded it from Librivox and am slowly working my way through all of Austen. I’ve got a little iphone docker right next to my machine and I listen as I piece. As for actual reading, I’m stocking up on fluffy light reads for a cruise next week.

  • I just finished listening to Fever Dream by Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child. I love the Pendergast series and this one did not disappoint!

  • Jean Marie:

    Julie Czerneda – I’ve just finished her Stratification series, and starting another of hers (but the title is escaping me at the moment). Those are on the netbook.

    Also reading The Knitter’s Book of Wool (library copy).

    And there are assorted magazines piled up by my side of the bed waiting for me…

  • I love hearing about multi-tasking! Sometimes, I try to do too many things at once, though, as I get side-tracked.

    Currently, I’m reading “The Star Garden” by Nancy E. Turner and it’s wonderful. I recently read “These Is My Words” and “Sarah’s Quilt” by the same author.

  • Paula:

    I’m about 1/3 of the way into The Girl Who Played with Fire by Stieg Larson. It is the follow-up to The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo. It is… interesting. I keep having to verify the book’s title because it seems more like a Harlequin romance (not that I’ve ever read one). Let’s just say the movie version is NC-17.

  • Currently I am reading Cat’s eye from Margaret Atwood, who I like really a lot. She is actually one of the first authors whose works I started to read in English (after Agatha Christies novels, and scientific articles and textbooks), and I was very proud of myself after the first book (Handmade’s tale). Since then I tried to find as many of her works as I could, and I have most now. All of them in English, naturally. :) It is actually funny, that she is not as well known around here, and I don’t even know if anything was ever translated into Hungarian. Oh well…

  • I’m 55 pages way from finishing The Girl Who Played With Fire. Started it Monday while up north for for a wedding. Before that I read Sworn To Silence by Linda Castillo (her first crime novel)which I picked up at the airport in Atlanta on the way north.

    P.S. I live 35 miles northwest of Big Canoe.

  • I’m reading The House at Riverton by Kate Morton, which is a bit of a departure for me, as I just finished a Dean Koontz thriller, and I have a Patricia Cornwell and a James Patterson lined up waiting for me. I’m trying to broaden my horizons. LOL

  • Hmmm–I real A LOT and the book I last laid down to start is called “The Fire Prince”. I real vampire/paranormal type books. Yup, I love weird fiction. My next favorite type of book is biographies. I also read/collect cookbooks–but they have to have PICTURES in them!

  • Julie:

    Hi Mary,
    Just about in the middle of Stephen King’s tome, “Under the Dome”. I mostly read in bed before sleep, but this book is not so read-in-bed friendly in hardcover at 1072 pages. I have not read much of his for years and years, but this one was recommended by a friend and is REALLY good. It’s got mystery, sci-fi, humor, horror all bundled into one.

  • Susie:

    I’m reading “Sweet Liar” by Jude Leveraux. A friend gave it to me. If you like mystery with romance you would like this one. I can’t put it down & the main guy character is a hunt & makes me want to hunt him down, ha. Just kidding.

    Usually read true crime, mysteries,auto biographies, & anything that keeps you on the edge of your seat. Also like Jeffery Deaver’s books.

  • Susie:

    Sorry, I spelled the author’s last name wrong. It is Deveraux.

  • Susie:

    Think I need to get off of the computer since I can’t spell tonight. The main guy character in the book I’m reading is a hunk not hunt. Geez…

  • laurie:

    I’m reading the “Girl with the Dragon Tattoo” series…book 2! There are only 3 books in the series as the author died of a heart attack at the age of 27 (?)… young anyway!

  • laurie:

    I see a few others are reading the same book: “The Girl who Played with Fire”…a very good read!

  • Cindy B.:

    I have gotten horribly spoiled! I used to read about 4 fluffy books a week. Work got in the way and I cut back to about 2 books a week … besides all of the professional reading and research.

    THEN … I WON an I-Pad at a professional conference. And being a “smarty pants” I decided I wanted a Nook so I could share books.

    SO … I just finished a DH Lawrence classic on the Nook, and a James Patterson on the I-Pad and I have a fluff book in my bedroom. I started another Patterson and the book the Kellerman’s daughter wrote. (Those Kellerman’s are prolific writers, I caught up on the whole family last summer.)

    One of our county libraries allows us to “borrow” books to our Nooks so it might be a place I will visit once I get going. I mostly read while traveling from meeting to meeting on public transit.

  • Helen:

    I am listening to Crime and Punishment, downloaded free to my ipod from Librivox.org.

  • Geri Faivre:

    I’m almost finished with “Three Cups of Tea” by Greg Mortenson. It’s very enlightening about what can be done to promote peace in the East. I’m a very avid reader. Go through 2 or 3 books a week.

  • anna:

    I have been reading the Joanne Fluke baking mysteries as well as another of Iris Johansen’s book. A friend just read the book 3 cups of tea and loved it. I read the book ” the Help” and would highly recommend it.
    Happy reading and multitasking.
    Regards,
    Anna

  • I’m listening to “Circle of Quilters” (Jennifer Chavarini) in the sewing room and we’ve been listening to “Black Wind” (Clive Cussler) in the van. Love my iPod. I’ve already been through the Robert Jordan “Wheel of Time” series about 5 times…all 11 books – and I have several more series on the iPod that I’ve listened to multiple times. I love to listen while I sew. I can’t watch movies when I’m stitching, but listening doesn’t require any eye contact, lol.

  • Pat:

    Just finished “The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest”. I now know why it’s on the bestsellers list! Can’t put those books down
    ’til they’re done. No more reading for awhile as I need to finish up a wedding quilt for next week.

  • Back in July of 2010 I read all of Jane Austen’s work. Persuasion was one of my favorites.
