I'm member at Shelfari a site for bibliophiles. It’s a book lover’s dream real. You can create a virtual library, join book discussion forums based on your tastes, read reviews on books you've wanted to read and there is no shortage of new reads to discover.
As a writer, I can’t take anyone seriously who says he’s a writer but he’s not a reader. If we should write what we know and we can’t know all that we know by personal experience, then reading is a logical way of knowing. Of course reading is important for a host of other reasons, but that is another soapbox topic I won’t make you suffer at the moment.
Anywhoo, what are you currently reading? Do you have a favorite genre? If you don’t mind, please include a brief description of what you’re reading. If you’re not currently reading anything, feel free to share favorite authors and titles.
