What are you reading Wednesday

Well, this is delayed, and has been for a while, unfortunately.  Yes, I am aware it’s Thursday.

My current audiobook is The Hate U Give.  I should finish it by tomorrow afternoon.

I have a few books due for bookclub soon.  I should probably get going on them.

I am reading the sequel to OH. MY. GODS. BY TERA LYNN CHILDS on the Kindle.  I might finish that early next week.

Dear Girls Above Me: Inspired by a True Story by Charlie McDowell

Dear Girls Above Me: Inspired by a True Story by Charlie McDowell

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I started reading this without knowing who the author was. When he was talking about his parents at the beginning, I just kind of shrugged it off. Eventually, when he was talking about the movie his mom was in, I looked it up. At that point, I didn’t go back to reread the beginning, knowing who his parents were. I did start questioning how much was fact and how much was fiction, based on this knowledge.

I laughed out loud at much of this book. I went in with the thought that it was entertaining fiction, with bits of the truth in it. I know several people like the girls upstairs, and totally believed that they said a lot of what was documented in the book. I loved the book!

What do you prefer?

readers prefer physical books

According to the above article, readers still prefer paper books to ebooks and audiobooks.

I tend to read ebooks because I can carry multiple books with me without it being too heavy.  Audiobooks are exclusively for the car.  Paper books are for at home with the full light on.  I do all three, but I think I prefer the ebooks.  Besides the fact that I can carry so many books with one small device, I don’t need my reading glasses because I can adjust the font size.  And it’s backlit so I don’t need the light on to read in bed.

I see so many people argue over this.  Each type of book has its own set of pros and cons.  It isn’t worth the argument.  It’s personal preference, in my opinion.  What is your preference?

 

Princess on the Brink, by Meg Cabot

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I have loved the Princess Diaries series. This one, though, was more of a bridge to the next book than a story on its own. Mia was whiny and needy in this book, more than usual. If I had not been reading the series out of order, I probably would have given up on it when I got to this one. The book after this one went back to being a good one, though.

What Are You Reading Wednesday

I finished my most recent audiobook, A Tree Grows in Brooklyn.  I have The Punishment She Deserves on Libby, so I may have to work on that, since it’s due for bookclub on June 26.

I am reading Highlander’s Forbidden Lass as an ARC for Fiona Faris.

I have A Trail Through Time for just fun.

I am still carrying Daisy Jones and the Six around in my bag, and The BFG is part of my Roald Dahl books catch up.
