From Paulette: We are lucky to be able to sit back, relax and listen to Alice talk about books and her reading habits. I feel like I am sitting beside her, comfortable and ready to read. Thanks Alice for taking us inside your reading life.
I am currently reading Corrupted by Lisa Scottoline –– Philadelphia lawyer turned
author. She is a diverse writer, mostly fiction, generally lawyer based for the storyi
I have just finished reading The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah who is one of my
favorite authors. We are doing it this Thursday for Summerhouse Bookclub. I have
to be honest; it was my favorite book read in 2015. Kristen Hannah’s books are
well-written and thoroughly researched and completely hold the readers’ interest,
page by page.
I personally like to read a book I can hold in my hand. I enjoy reading
in my sunroom in my home in Pennsylvania. I have a favorite red chair with an ottoman.
Here at the beach I sit in the great room in a comfy chair looking out at the ocean.
I like to get my books from the library but I have bought books from Amazon.
If the book is mine, I will underline a passage I want to remember for later.
Some of the books I have read recently that I enjoyed were All the Light We Cannot
See by Anthony Doerr, and Me before You by JoJo Moyes. I am looking forward to reading Me After
You, also by JoJo Moyes.
When I was a child I liked the Bobbsey Twins and Nancy Drew. Generally if I don’t like a book after 50 pages, I stop
reading it. My favorite authors are K. Hannah, Leanne Moriarty, and James Patterson’s Women’s Murder Club Series. I’m
planning to read A Man Called Ove next. I enjoy reading and I usually try to find the time
each day to read, sometimes only a chapter.
From Paulette: It’s clear how much enjoyment reading gives you, Alice. Thanks again, you inspire me to just sit back and enjoy what I am reading, not to worry about how fast it is going, or what I think about it. I just picked up a paperback copy of A Man Called Ove and it is next for me, too.
