Look what the cat brought in

Post by Ghostlady » Tue Sep 24, 2019 7:37 pm

Hi all, haven't been around for quite awhile. I've been doing so many different things in my life, work being very very busy and stressful. Looking forward to reading again (been more than a year since I've finished a book) and maybe playing some computer games again. I started reading The Far Pavilions by M M Kaye. Over 1000 bible pages. It was on my bucket list. The author had lived in India for a big portion of her life and it took here 15 years to write the book. I stayed away from Kindle but for this book I broke down and bought one. Still not a fan. Anyways, the story was really really good but after 600 pages I couldn't take it anymore. Too much Indian tribal wars and descriptions. So I went back to one of my favorites, Lucinda Riley and enjoying The Seven Sisters. What are you all reading? :study:
Last night I dreamed I went to Manderley again...

It's great to see you back! And speaking of backs, how is yours?

My great bliss since I retired 10 years ago this summer is being able to read all I want! While there is nothing to compare to the feel and smell of real pages, I have gone to the Kindle app on my Surface tablet and even on my desktop. It's easier to read and I love the "instant gratification!" I have a subscription to Kindle unlimited since I go through so many books every month.

Right now, I'm into survival stories. Some have even ventured into zombie apocolypse territory! I couldn't get enough of the Slow Burn series by Bobby Adair. I'm also loving another series by Bobby Adair called Dusty's Diary. I don't think I've laughed this hard while reading a zombie apocolypse book! I can't wait for the next book.

The Lethal Seasons books by Alice Sabo were also really good. A virus and climate change have destroyed the world and the books follow some of the survivors.

Same here Drac - pre-retirement I never had the time or energy to read any books - and being an insomniac, I get through several books a week and I am also with Kindle Unlimited!

Welcome back, Ghostlady. :)

I've been a compulsive reader since I learned to read! Lately, I've mostly been reading mysteries, science fiction, and vampire stories.
