Ever since I started this blog, I've been meaning to do a monthly book review. I like to read a couple of books a month (mostly non-fiction), but lately I haven't had as much time for reading. And as time marches on, my book list grows. In fact, I've probably got 5 or 6 books that I've ordered from Amazon in the last few months that still haven't been read.
But if you're not like me and you're looking around for ideas on what to read, here are some blogs that you might want to check out..............
Danny Yee's Book Reviews covers just about everything under the sun. Danny's an Aussie world traveller and he seems to have wide interests in both fiction and non-fiction categories. He's extremely organized as you can search for books under just about every category and subcategory that you can think of.
But one category I didn't see listed on Danny's site was horror. But don't despair! A Pensecola blogger named Tony has it thoroughly covered at The Horror Fan, a blog I found via the Aging Hipster. Horror is a dangerous genre if you aren't familiar with an author or his/her style. I usually only read these books in October (surprise, surprise).
Tony even points out a site where you can find free book downloads, SpecFicWorld.com. I've already downloaded a compilation of short stories that I'll read one night when I'm in the mood. Although, I readily admit that I'm far too tactile to do my reading via electronic means. Guess that's just one of my little personal quirks.
Closer to home, the Atlanta Media Bloggers lists both books and movies that they've experienced recently. The talented Spacey Gracey, who seems born to blog and be creative in general, has a hand in this, as do the folks at the Georgia Podcast Network. Though not blessed with an abundance of creativity myself, I do appreciate those who are.
So during these cold winter months, curl up with a good book. Be prepared to take a peek inside someone else's world. And hey, if that's not your thing, a new Survivor starts Thursday night. That's right.........another one!
