{ literary junkies week 1 }


Goings on in Texas

I am so excited about the new linkup that Taylor from Goings On In Texas and Lesley from By the Porchlight have started called Literary Junkies.  As if you don't know I love books.

The first book we will be reading is The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern.  This book is so far from what I've ever read before that I can't wait to talk about it.  I feel like I'm keeping a huge secret by not telling you how great this book is yet.

But before we get to that discussion we are starting off with a few questions.

1) What book are you currently reading? 
Besides The Night Circus I am currently reading A Political Affair by Mary Whitney.  It's a political/love story tale (obviously) between a Kennedy-esque Senator and his intern who is more than a decade younger than him.  It should sound trite and cliche but it's a very well woven story of their relationship from her first day all the way through to Election Day.

2) What are your 3 favorite books of all time?

Oh, wow.  This is like asking me which one of my children is my favorite. I've stared at this blinking cursor for a long time trying to decide so I'm going to go with the 3 books that jump into my mind first as memorable and I know that I've read countless (I really mean countess too) times as well.
                                    

3) What is your "approach" upon entering a bookstore? Where do you immediately head after entering through the front door?
When I first enter a bookstore I always head to the new releases shelf that's usually in the front.  I always like to check and see what's new and if they have any sales going on.  After that I head to the romance section and stay there until my husband says it's time to go.  If I have any of my children with me we'll make a stop through the children's section so they can choose a book as well.  
I don't go to the bookstore as much as I used to though.  I know it's because I have my Kindle and all I have to do is click a button and my choice will be downloaded in a matter of seconds for me to begin reading.  But nothing beats the atmosphere of a good bookstore.

  3. I buy books on my Kindle as well, but I still love going to bookstores. I even buy books sometimes cause I like the feel of a real book.
