Right now, I’m reading A Writer’s Coach: An Editor’s Guide to Words That Work by Jack Hart. It’s entertaining and educational. It’s edutaining! Or entercational. One or the other.

For even more entertainment, I’m reading about dead bodies in Concealed in Death by J.D. Robb. I somehow let myself get a couple of years behind on this series so I’m playing catch-up. I’m almost there. If this book doesn’t bring me current, I only have one more. I think.

Who are your favorite supporting characters?

My favorite supporting characters are the whole gang from J.D. Robb’s In Death series.  All of them: the cops, the friends, the whatever-you-want-to-call-Summerset. I not only love the way Robb writes the characters themselves, but the way the friendships and relationships have evolved over the years.

The theme of this week is –

Do you stop reading when tired or at chapter breaks?

And the answer is: yes. LOL

I try very hard to stop at chapter breaks, just because I can’t stand to stop in the middle of a scene. But if I’m falling asleep, then I just have to stop where I am. I also read whenever I get a few minutes here and there, so sometimes I have to stop mid-scene just so I can get other things done. I don’t like it, though. *pout*

My first thought was Eve Dallas, but I’m afraid she would kick my butt, so I’m going with Pippi Longstocking. When I was a kid, Pippi was the coolest thing going. She’s still pretty awesome.

 

Literary Addicts Weekly Meme – Favorite Comfort Book

What about your favorite comfort book? You know, the one you go to when you need to read when you need to wrap something around you like a warm, fluffy blanket. . .

I really don’t like to reread books; there are just too many books out there (even before the advent of ebooks) to spend time on a book I’ve already read. I felt bad when I read Susan’s post, because mine will pretty much say the same thing. I do read the bible when I can’t get my mind to stop worrying, but when it’s just a matter of relaxing, escaping, and wasting time, I head for a romance novel. Preferably something with some humor in it.

What’s your favorite comfort book?

I’d like to spend a day or two in a Regency historical, but I wouldn’t want to stay there. I’m pretty sure I could live in a J.D. Robb book, though. She writes the In Death series, where they have auto-chefs, flying cars (well, hovering cars, anyway), and “Mom” is actually a professional job title with a salary.

I like Winnie the Pooh, but my favorite children’s book is Charlotte’s Web. I know my mom  read to me all the time when I was little, but the only book I actually remember her reading to me is Charlotte’s Web. I don’t know how old I was, maybe seven or eight. My mom was washing dishes and I was sitting at the kitchen table reading. When I got to the part where Charlotte dies (hope that’s not a spoiler for anyone), I started crying and couldn’t see to read. I asked my mom if she would read the rest of the book to me. She put down the dishcloth, sat me in her lap, and finished the book.

I still have my old copy of Charlotte's Web.
