My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I ran into this book as part of a mythology list. I loved the book! I guessed at the ending early on, but I still loved it. The characters were well rounded and the story was great. I finished it hoping that there was a sequel. There is! I will be working on it soon. I hope the sequel is just as good.

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?

 

Opening a book

This is a wonderful poem about how reading can change you. I loved it and felt that I had to share. It is along the lines of this post, but says nothing about knowledge. Just that books can change you.

I have read some books that stick with me for a long time. I will randomly think of certain passages in a book and be reminded of how it made me feel. Occasionally I’ll change the way I think about things.

Even when I reflect on how bad a book was, it makes me think. I think about what could have been better. I think about what went wrong. I think about the good parts of the story.

Each book has something for me to think about and each book changes me. I welcome the changes.

Cruise director

I have been following the updates for my upcoming cruise.  Kyndall Fire is the name of the cruise director for my upcoming vacation.  I decided that it’s a sign and I am on the right vacation.

I plan on a lot of time by the pool with my book or my Kindle.  I am sure that Ms. Fire will have other things for me to do, also.  I am getting excited.

I enjoyed this book, but it got very intense for me at certain places. I had to put it down and go back to it a lot. It was worth finishing, mostly because I needed to know what was going to happen.

From word of mouth, I knew the ending was going to leave me thinking. It certainly did. I think it’s going to be on my mind for a while.
