Books on My Winter Reading Shelf

I love reading. Reading takes me away to some magical places as well as to some dark places from time to time. I thought it would be fun for me to share some of the books I currently have on my winter reading shelf. I’ve started some of these, and others I’m waiting to start until after the others are finished. There’s only so much my middle age brain can handle at once. LOL!

I love getting book recommendations from others, and I also enjoy making recommendations myself. I posted back in the summer about books I was reading then. Have a look at those too, because all books are good to read any time of the year.

The current situation on my nightstand.

I recently started using the Good Reads website to find books that are of interest to me. This also helps me to keep track of what I’m reading, share my recommendations (along with ratings) and find new books to read as well. You can connect with friends on the site and share what you’re reading, what you like, recommend, etc. If you use the site please visit my profile so we can connect.

My reading for the first of this year focuses mostly on self-help, blog help, autobiographies and a little fiction thrown into the mix. I’ve found that non-fiction books have been my picks for the past few months. However, I’ve thoroughly enjoyed the novels that I read, especially the ones from Oprah’s book club recommendations. The sign of a good book for me is one that makes me read late into the wee hours of the morning.

What do you look for in a good book these days? Let me know if you have any recommendations for me as well.

      It got rave reviews. I watched so many of the interviews with her that I feel like I already read the book. 😊 Stacie xo

    I just got a subscription to Boxwalla’s Book Box and am very much looking forward to receiving my first box soon. It looks like a great way to discover authors I might not have noticed before. My first box is going to contain books by an Israeli novelist and a Pakistani novelist. I am going to add The Tattooist of Auschwitz to my list as well.
