Yes, I am back, in a very disorganized muddle. Evidently I can create new posts, but I still can't access my archived drafts (and you know how I live to plan, outline, draft and redraft stuff.)
No worries. We'll just call it Improv Week at PBW.
I love summer because it's the best reading time of year for me. Every week I read on average ten to fifteen books, but I'm able to knock out a few more whenever the kids are out of school. I don't know exactly how many books I read per week during summer, but my TBR stack constantly needs replenishment.
I thought it would be fun to find out how much I read and make a giveaway out of it, so for this week (6/17-6/24), I'm going to take everything (books, magazines, newspaper articles, etc.) that I read, put it in a box, and send it to one of you. So far I've read Never Lie to a Lady by Liz Carlyle, Raintree: Haunted by Linda Winstead Jones, Blaze by Stephen King, The Kristallis Baby by Natalie Rivers, Unlikely Angel by Ashley Smith, Waters Edge magazine June 07 issue, and a pile of articles from the Sunday paper.
For a chance to win, in comments to this post, tell us the title and author of the book you're reading now (or, if you're in a reading dry spell, just toss your name in the hat) by midnight on Sunday, June 24, 2007. I'll draw one name at random from everyone who participates and send the winner the box with everything I read this week in it. Giveaway open to everyone on the planet, even if you've won something at PBW in the past.

I'm reading and loving Tanya Huff the BLOOD BOOKS. (blood trail and blood price)ReplyDelete
I don't yet know what I'm reading next, but I think it's going to be Larissa Ione and Stephanie Tyler aka Sydney Croft's Riding The Storm.ReplyDelete
I'm really just here to say thanks for pointing me to the Raintree books! I was kinda "it's a Nocturne...maybe it's going to be a reading disaster for me like Bombshell" so I wasn't keen. And don't put me in the draw. :)
I'm actually reading Afterburn (S. L. Viehl ;)) right now. So far, big thumbs up! After this I'll probably head back to the library and grab the next Wheel of Time book... not sure which one I'm up to. Good stuff, that series.ReplyDelete
I'm teading Tom Holt's Barking.ReplyDelete
Just ONE book? I read in multiples.ReplyDelete
For example, my book at work is How to Write Killer Fiction by Carolyn Wheat, my bedside book is Paths Not Taken by Simon R Green, my bath book is Urban Shaman by CE Murphy and my stuck in traffic/waiting for the kids book is The Blade Itself by Joe Abercrombie. Sometimes, I have even more books on the go, but I've restricted myself to no more than four...
Reading James Morrison's "The Testament of Gideon Mack"ReplyDelete
Currently reading Guy Gavriel Kay's "The Last Light of the Sun"ReplyDelete

I was fortunate enough to receive an advance copy of Marjorie Liu's new book that comes out next month, so I am deep into that story. I think that I read about five books a week and am alwalys looking for new authors and books.ReplyDelete

I'm re-reading (for the upteenth time) Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice.ReplyDelete
How on earth do you read so many books? I must be a really slow reader!
I'm about half through several books: Silver Birch Blood Moon, Montmorency on the Rocks, and Sweet Thursday.ReplyDelete
Diplomacy of Wolves by Holly Lisle.ReplyDelete
Good stuff, REALLY good stuff.
I agree with Jo! I must be a slow reader too. How on earth do you read so many books?
I am reading The Time Traveler's Wife by Audrey Niffenegger (Wonderful story). Just finished Jim Butcher's Death Masks(very good), Angela Knight's Master of Dragons (so-so) and Joan Didion's The Year of Magical Thinking (lyrical).ReplyDelete
Hey Lynn! I'm reading "A Fistful of Charms" by Kim Harrison.ReplyDelete
What a fantastic contest. I'm currently reading A Woman After God's Own Heart by Elizabeth George and Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants by Ann Brashares. I usually gobble books up in the summer, too, but I can't now with the job. I read nonfiction before bed because fiction keeps me up, but the only time I have for reading now is before bed! Uh-oh! I need to tweak my schedule.ReplyDelete
Bitten by Kelley Armstrong is in progress. The Rabbit Factory by Marshall Karp is next in line (and a monster of a book!). Sir Thursday by Garth Nix is my "waiting for the child's extracurricular activity to conclude" standby.ReplyDelete
Edie, I am chartreuse with envy.
I'm currently (re)reading Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince (Have to make sure I remember everything when the new one comes out). And eagerly waiting for the arrival of Lean Mean Thirteen.ReplyDelete
*gets up to check and see if mail has arrived yet*

I just received my copy of Wolf Tales IV by Kate Douglas in the mail yesterday and I'm already half way through.ReplyDelete
I just finished reading "St Peter's Fair" by Ellis Peters, and and halfway through "The Last Camel Died at Noon" by Elizabeth Peters. I know these aren't cutting edge new titles, but I have both series as audiobooks and I like to listen while I'm knitting. (Gah, that makes me sound so old!)ReplyDelete

The Subtle Knife, by Phillip Pullman...ReplyDelete

I just picked up "Night Echoes" by Holly Lisle, but also have "Double Take" by Catherine Coulter and "The Good Guy" by Dean Koontz in my TBR pile.ReplyDelete
So many books, so little time!
Can I still enter? I'm strapped for new stuff to read. Right now, here's the pile'o'books I'm trying to make work for me because they worked in the past:ReplyDelete
"Once a Hero" by Elizabeth Moon, "Spindle's End" by Robin McKinley, "Dolley Madison in Love and War" and "Riding Shotgun" by Rita Mae Brown and last, not least: "The Lives of Dax", edited by Marco Palmieri.
None of them are throwing off sparks for me right now. Maybe I should sit down and write a book, myself.
I'm currently reading...ReplyDelete
Children of Dune (reread)
Lightning's Daughter (reread)
Sympathy for the Devil
Each book lives in a different part of my real world and serves a different purpose.
I'm rereading Dragonsdawn, by Anne McCaffrey, The Crystal Singers of Ballybran, also by Anne McCaffrey, and some random Stephen King mother had lying around the house...ReplyDelete
The Innocent by Harlan CobenReplyDelete
Birds of Prey by Wilbur Smith.ReplyDelete
I'm reading before you leap by kermit frog, and women and money by suze orman.ReplyDelete
Currently reading "The Rest Falls Away" by Colleen Gleason at home and the graphic novel "Plain Janes" by Cecil Castellucci and Jim Rugg (DC Comics Minx line) carried around in my purse. For listening enjoyment, I am inbetween audio books now.ReplyDelete
I'm reading "The Art Of Learning" by Josh Waitzkin.ReplyDelete
I'm reading The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss, The Shadowy Horses by Susanna Kearsley, and Beyond Fear by Bruce Schneier.ReplyDelete

Currently reading How Few Remain by Harry Turtledove, as well as sporadically picking up Guns, Germs and Steel by Jared Diamond.ReplyDelete
I am reading Dragonflies and dinosaurs by Kate Austin. Love it.ReplyDelete
I am reading The Virgin of Small Plains by Nancy Pickard. Wonderful and emotional.ReplyDelete
I am reading Any Bitter Thing by Monica Wood. Very enjoyable.ReplyDelete
I just started The Sense of Paper by Taylor Holden.ReplyDelete
I am reading something special, I an enthralled with this novel. Francesca's Kitchen by Peter Pezzelli.ReplyDelete
I am rereading Kiss of Crimson by Lara Adrian and Jacob by Jacquelyn Frank.ReplyDelete
I reading Nightlife by Rob Thurman.ReplyDelete
The Hazards of Hunting a Duke by Julia London, and I finally got my hands on StarDoc and started reading it at the red lights on the way home from the bookstore. (I'm not entirely crazy. I've actually seen someone reading behind the wheel of a moving vehicle on the highway for goodness sakes. At least I stop first.)ReplyDelete
I've also got Nightlife by Rob Thurman and Games of Command by Linnea Sinclair on the TBR pile. I'm impressed by people who can read more than a couple of books at a time. I had to train myself to be able to read even two at a time.
I'm starting a new book, HUNTERS: HEART AND SOUL by Shiloh Walker.ReplyDelete
I am reading the Yates Garden Guide to see if I should plant bulbs now or later. It is winter here now, so want some bulbs for spring. I am so not green thumb!!!ReplyDelete
Read so far this week: "The Devil in Winter" by Lisa Kleypas, Holly Lisle's "Create a Plot Clinic", and re-read "Diplomacy of Wolves" by Holly Lisle. Tomorrow and Friday, re-reading "Vengeance of Dragons" and "Courage of Falcons", books two and three in the her trilogy.ReplyDelete
I have to add that last weekend I re-read "Blade Dancer". Some books are just too good to read only once (or twice).
I haven't read anything in your giveaway -- please put my name in the hat! Thank you.
Hmmm. This week, I'm reading/have read "Pharaoh" by Eloise Jarvis McGraw, "The Leopard Prince" by Elizabeth Hoyt, and a few magazines. Not much, compared to you, but I've been distracted. :-)ReplyDelete
30 Days of Night, a horror book, can't remember the author.ReplyDelete
The History Channel Magazine
Reinventing Chastity by Eve Vaughn
Reading through the comments I now have more books to add to my Want-To-Read list. Thanks everyone.ReplyDelete
Right now I have four books on the go: The Enemy by Lee Child, Kill the Messenger by Tami Hoag, Prime Time, by Hank Phillippi Ryan and Aftermath Inc, Cleaning Up After CSI goes home by Gil Reavill.
Ohhh, I'm just finishing off a sneak peak of something Shiloh Walker has been writing. I guess that doesn't count since it's not available yet *g*ReplyDelete
Next up on the TBR pile is Definitely Dead by Charlaine Harris. I'm loving this series.
Hmmmmmm.........at the moment I am reading Charles Sheffield's "Dark as Day". It's a definate must for fans of hard sci fi, but sort of confusing to me. Whats the opposite of 'hard' sci fi? I guess I usually read regular sci fi, cuz this book was hard to get into and harder to keep reading. I'm not the type to put a book down once I start on it though, so I'll keep on reading.ReplyDelete
Just finished reading a Harlequin SuperRomance, His Perfect Woman by Kay Stockham.ReplyDelete
Reading "The Flying U Ranch" by B. M. (Bertha Muzzy) Bower, a western written by a woman roughly contemporary with Owen "The Virginian" Wister. Not as good as the first book in this series I read, this one is a random bit of fluff about a range war between cattlemen and sheepherders in Montana. But Bower's style is fairly easy to digest compared to her contemporaries and it's neat to be reading a western this old that's not all dust and testosterone.ReplyDelete
Just finished Kitty Takes a Holiday by Carrie Vaughn... Excellent! Just starting Kindling by Mick Farren.ReplyDelete
I am currently reading any of Holly Lisele's books that I can find after going to her site from your's. I am also reading Harry Potter in anticipation of the new one, and am enjoying A Plague of Memory.ReplyDelete
I'm not reading at the moment, since I'm working on my own novel. I can't work and write at the same time... I find myself writing like whoever I'm reading! But... here's tossing the hat :-)ReplyDelete
I'm reading Writer Mama by Christina Katz, and I am rereading Dark Lover by JR Ward and Dark Need, by you.ReplyDelete
I am currently reading The Courtesan by Susan Carroll.ReplyDelete
The Birth House by Ami McKay. :)ReplyDelete
I'm in-between books right now. I just finished The Dream Thief by Shana Abe and my next book is The Lies of Locke Lamora by Scott Lynch (starting it today on my coffee break). Also read this week, When Gods Die by C.S. Harris (book 2 of the Sebastian St. Cyr mystery series).ReplyDelete
I'm reading _Left Hand of Darkness_ (Le Guin) and _51 Tales_ (Dunsany). Ice planets and Death, yippee.ReplyDelete
Hugh Laurie reading the phone book would entertain me; listening to him read _Great Expectations_ would be stellar (hint hint) ;-)
Thank you for sharing your writing life with us.
I'm currently reading Shadows in the Starlight by Elaine Cunningham. I'd say it's urban fantasy, but it's written in a very unfantastical way - completely different to any UF I've read. It's almost like a straight PI novel but with elves. Very gritty and compulsive reading.ReplyDelete
Ooh, what a neat idea :). I just wish I read as fast as you do. Not including the reading for work stuff, I can finish 1-2 paperbacks in a good week.ReplyDelete
I swear this is pure coincidence, but I just finished a book this morning. Night Lost by...umm, who was that ;)...Lynn Viehl. I can't tell you how much I'm enjoying the Darkyn books. And all the set up in the first book is playing out in each one so sweetly.
Anyway, I'm also reading The Bull from the Sea by Mary Renault because Colin wouldn't let me take Night Lost on my camping trip for fear one of my friends would snag the book and he'd never get the chance to read it :). It's funny because I just listened to an audiobook of Greek Mythology. It's a good read so far :).
Haley's Hints by Graham HaleyReplyDelete
I'm currently reading The Stand by Stephen King. I am amazed that you can read so much in a week and still have time to do anything else.ReplyDelete
I just arrived at my aunt and uncle's place this morning, so I haven't yet started on a book (although they have rooms full - it's a great place to visit). So far today I've read a Small Farm and a few Harrowsmith Country Life magazines. I'd like to toss my name in the hat, though.ReplyDelete
I am currently reading When Demons Walk by Patricia Brggs. Love her work. Wish I could find a copy of Masques by her that does not cost a fortune.......ReplyDelete
I am reading The Gemini Game by Susanna Kearsley. I loved The Thundering Horses.ReplyDelete
I'm currently reading "Nighttime Is My Time" by Mary Higgins Clark, from the "borrow me" bookshelf in my workgroup's storage room. (Cool work group.)ReplyDelete
I am reading:ReplyDelete

Right at the moment, I'm reading Protector of Flight by Robin D. Owens... yesterday it was Staying Dead by Laura Anne Gilman... and there were two older romance novels late last night that I'm too lazy to go hunt up.ReplyDelete
I suppose this will put me in the category of "We know what you are, we're just negotiating the price."ReplyDelete
So I'll enter, and I'll even provide my reading list.
Just finished: "Volk's Game", a Russian thriller by Brent Ghelfi. Brutal, depressing and moments of heart.
Just started: "Mr. Monk and the Two Assistants" by Lee Goldberg. After "Volk," I need something lighter.
Scanning: "Rule the Web" by Mark Frauenfelder. Collection of useful applications for nearly every aspect of Web life.
Collections of Prince Valiant and Steve Canyon comics, from Fantagraphics and Kitchen Sink. Bought these back in the '80s. Now, they're entertaining my kids, who've raided my comic book collection (once I put away the R.Crumb, the undergrounds and the *ahem* more adult material).

And I'm also slowly working through Jonathan Ames' "What's Not to Love?: The Adventures of a Mildly Perverted Young Writer" which is very welcome when I need a sense of the real universe for a change.ReplyDelete
I'm currently between books (just finished Joe Boyd's bio "White Bicycles") and am soaking up the Rolling Stone 40th Anniversary issue and an article in Print magazine about the redesign of the children's newsletter "Weekly Reader".ReplyDelete
May that, and random luck, be enough to win me some more stuff to read!
