What are you reading?

Currently reading Verdwijnpunt by Wytske Versteeg: http://www.letterenfonds.nl/en/book/1319/vanishing-point

Lately I have also been listening to some audiobooks on YouTube (mostly horror).

In general, there are a lot of genres I like. Nowadays I read mostly in either Dutch or English (simply because those are the easiest available ones), but in the past I read books in German, French, Swedish, and Norwegian as well.

I don’t usually do this, but thought y’all might be interested

I like scifi, mysteries, history search&research(genealogy)

I couldn’t resist to say: “I’m reading my bills!!” :rofl::rofl::rofl:

Currently I’m reading news online… ever daily changes and happenings… hope Dems won’t raise taxes!! At this time I have no time for a book, although I saved many and unfortunately donated many… In past I co-read books that kids had as school assignments like Hole and the Breadwinner, and of course Harry Potter books, I like fiction and fairytales. Another one was the Swiss accounts… during WWII and The Greenlanders a fat big book, very well written!!

Other fat book was “Gone With The Wind” I’m sure many know the what 3-4 hours long movie and the book had 700 pages :scream:

Don’t get too depressed reading those, ya hear? :sweat_smile::joy::rofl:

Since we’re on the subject of books, please allow me to tell you about a book I wrote describing a somewhat distant future in which Elon Musk has already conquered the vast outer space, establishing colonies all over the Universe. After the billionaires and scientists and soldiers, regular folk have also started making hyperdrive jumps to these celestial settlements… And with them the bad folk too, the criminals, the terrorists…

The protagonist, a jaded detective working on a hot case, is constantly remarking how his new home has become Earth 2.0.

I thought that was really interesting. If you think the same, simply search Detective Ace by Adrian Morales on your reading device. :rocket: :milky_way: :books:

But I disagree with the “focus on eternity, not the here and now” bit. When your son was sick, you sprung into action. You focused on the immediate situation.
With the pandemic, you’re doing more than most of us are. You’re focused on the here and now. Eternity can wait. And you’re not saying, “Let God handle it,” either. You’re handling it. With His support, of course.

Anyway, your actions are worth a billion times more than all the preaching in the world. I wish I could help too… Mmm… Perhaps with a funny story to keep your morale high… :sweat_smile:


#29

Yay Adrian, you have some nice author works on Amazon, wishing you good success!! :four_leaf_clover::four_leaf_clover::four_leaf_clover:


#30

Thank you so much. I really appreciate it. :grin::orange_heart:


#31

I do not have much time for reading now. Because I am into preparing for writing essays and other exams in college. Sometimes when I have not much free time I apply to essayshark.com for getting little help with writing big college papers.


#32

That’s alright. Life demands our undivided attention, after all. But don’t forget to put aside a bit of me time as well. And if you can’t read a book, why not listen to one instead? Audiobooks are really popular. There are many services from which to choose, including Viki’s sibling, Kobo books. :books:


#33

this is an old link , hope someone is here…


I love reading sci fi, mysteries, and of course vampires & witches, and first & foremost the Bibler, that has 66 books, from romance, mystery, and a bunch inbetween

maybe I am doing this to get people like me to read more!!


#34

so I got both!!
I find just a very small problem,. to read or crochet, thats the question, I can easily crochet while watching a drama, but to read and crochet? OH I know Kendle, with the audible books???


#35

Maybe you can start with listening to books, relaxed in your chair with a cup of tea or when you go to bed. When you’re working on your crochet. Or with anything you do:

Watchers of time is what I am starting to read, a physical book at that

by Charles Todd


#38

I used to read like crazy, but I am the same as you - once I started watching Asian dramas, I’ve hardly picked up a book other than packing up my extensive library (I’m a book hoarder) to take with me to my new city last year. I have one whole midsized bookshelf of unread books that I have been gifted, and I keep telling myself I’ll get to them eventually. I’m in a drama slump right now, so maybe now is the perfect time to get back to the other world of endless stories.


#39

well I am going to try and change that! get back into reading that is. yes a drama slump, the perfect time to get back into reading(another book hoarder here) and besides yarn that is, hehehehehe

and heres another thing, I want to learn to write, I have kept putting it off for years ( a good onr for the depression link) so tips & pointers will be a good thing

1, what do I want to write a bout? and most of you know me, but of course something about Atlantis, a mystery, scifi, even a who done its!
2 but where do I start

and so on, and way I understand, the ones you want to write, thats the kind of books you need to read.
I just dont want to spend an x amount of dollars to join something (Writers Digest for one) to learn to write…theres got to be something like Google that I can learn at least the basics!

so what am I going to read?
1 sticks & scones
2 paging the dead
3Frontier Christmas
4 Murder at an Irish wedding
I’d like to find some genealogy mysteries too. so thats it for now
got a lot of amish books which are good, but rather do something else


#41

I love this title. I’ll have to go research it and find out what it’s about.

I’m sure there are a lot of resources on the internet for getting started in writing. I hope you find something to help you on that journey.


#42

thank you! and I will find my source & resource
