I'm currently reading from a number of Kindle books, sporadically and as I have an interest.   I've been hopping between Dutch Fairy Tales for Young People; The Message: The Book of Proverbs (Eugene Peterson); The Bittermeads Mystery (Ernest Robertson Punshon);  Murder in Passy (Cara Black);  and The Mystery of the Big Ben (Fernando Trujillo).

Could it be that I have attention deficit disorder? Or, do I just seek variety?As usual, all links lead to

Tomorrow is also a day.

I think the Internet promotes ADD. I find it more and more difficult to focus on one task for very long - gotta check my email and the headlines and fb and....

My dad likes Wm Tapply now. I have one to read but haven't started it yet. Do you find you are drawn to different genres than when younger? I used to devour fiction, but now drift toward memoir.

I'm sure, Pat, that you just like variety... Having several books going at one time is a good thing.... It keeps life interesting!!!!!

Good list.

I have never read any of these books. In fact, I have heard of only one of the titles before.

Pat - Arkansas said...

Abby I've read several of Wm. Tappley's books, many years ago - mystery stories featuring a Boston attorney, as I recall.

Betsy Yes, I like variety, but my variety usually leans toward mystery fiction. :) I do throw in something 'of value' from time to time.

rhymeswithplague I'm not surprised, since I think you are a more erudite and gentle sort of fellow. Our reading tastes most likely differ greatly. Fortunately for all concerned, I don't have any interest in replicating any of the nefarious activities which so intrigue me. The mystery is the thing; I'd rather the mayhem be conducted 'off screen', as it were.

Arkansas Patti said...

I haven't read any of these either but like you I have a really varied taste. Never could lock into just one genre. Kindle has really opened the box of goodies for sampling.

George said...

I'm very impressed with all the reading you have done and are doing. I did a fair amount of reading on my iPad when we were on vacation, but I haven't had much time for reading since we got back.

I notice 3 by Irvine...I take it you must really like his....I need to add him to my list to check out. Mysteries seem to be what hold my interest now.
