As I have been a bad friend here, due to me being sick most of April, I will do this as a way for me to be with you guys “KIND OF A MEME FOR MAY…”

Today the subject is books…How do you read them?

I for one, as a long life lover of books, and later being a book seller, I´ve always loved my books...
Big, heavy and with a lot of pages to turn…HEAVEN!
I have shelf upon shelf in my apartment filled with books, a lot of them standing in two rows…

But after I god breast cancer in 2007, things changed….as you know, my fine motor skills gets worse and worse, so in the end I had problems holding a real book, it would be to heavy to read in bed.
And spending a lot of time in bed due to pain and problems, means wanting to read ;)

But a lovely Lady called RJ Scott got me a Kindle!!
What a life saver!

It is easy to use; I can download books to it with one click, and then just read.
Doesn’t mean that I don´t buy hardback/paperback books, because I do…

If you take a look at my Kindle it is almost only M/M books….as my shelves are books collected over the past 36 years ;)

But now….how do you like to read your books and what kind of books do you read?

I LOVE books. It took me a while to get into reading as a kid (it was always my sister who read one book after the other), I only started to read a lot with around 10, but ever since, it´s one of my favorite pastimes. I sometimes have periodes when I don´t read as much (like when I started writing and reading fanfics 3 years ago, I stopped reading "real" stories and only read like 5 books a year or so) but recently I started reading a lot again. Atm I enjoy going to the library once a month, taking 5 books and reading them. I always take the same genres though; historical novels or fantasy (my favorite), thriller or crimes and once in a while a romantic novel.

"I sometimes have periodes when I don´t read as much"
I understand..when I was working as a bookseller, around the times when we had sales lasting a month, I could not look at a book when I came home;) Only read bad magazines;)
I had a time too when I almost only read fanfic...
