Woo Hoo!! I Get To Order It!! And I Have 150 Follower's!!!
First off, I want to say thanks to Drazil for letting me know that her dropping my blog as a Follower was in error. I totally understand. In fact, I am wondering if it is Blogger that is doing it sometimes, as I have noticed some problems with Blogger lately. So thanks for Re-Following me Drazil!!! You made my day :) Secondly, I have 150 Followers!! I feel like..."you like me, you really like me"!! LOL :)
Now, back to the real world, Walt finally gave me the go ahead to order my Kindle DX today!!! I can't wait!! Then I just have to start purchasing my books for it. I love to read, and I am planning on reading more in the future. I used to read a book a week, but lately I only read during Vacations, etc, so it can take me a year or two to finish one of Diana Gabaldon's (900+ page) books!!
My favorite Authors are Diana Gabaldon, Bertrice Small, Margaret George, Philippa Gregory, Jean Plaidy and Alison Weir. Although I have just begun to read books by Michele Sinclair and Karen Marie Moning among many others as well. If you haven't noticed a pattern here, I love to read stories about real characters in History, Highlander's, Scotland and Vampires!
My favorite types of books are Historical Fiction, Historical, Biographical, Historical Time Travel, some Horror and Sci Fi (like Twilight Series, etc), among others. However, I mostly read books set in the 1000AD-1799AD time period. Yes, I know, I am a snob about it. But I rarely read anything set in Contemporary times. And that means anything set from 1800AD-forward! So here is to my new Kindle DX, and my new passion for reading!! So...till next time.
Aloha My Friends :)
