I am finishing up Rick Riordan’s Red Pyramid now. I’ve got a few more chapters to read. I am looking for my next good read. I read a good number of the classics when I was younger. Growing up, my favorite books were Black Beauty, Call of the Wild, Robinson Crusoe, Treasure Island, and My Antonia. As I got into my teens, I loved historical romance novels….any Johanna Lindsay or Kathleen Woodwiss or Jude Deveraux book I could get my hands on. Now, in my older years, I read off and on in between daily duties. I’ve found audiobooks to be preferable now especially while commuting to work. I went through hours upon hours of Game of Thrones, House on Haunted Hill, I Claudius, several business books, and listened to tons of Joel Osteen hour-long sermons on Sirius XM.
Do you have any suggestions for a great contemporary read?
I’ve been thinking about picking up Killers of the Flower Moon since I heard the movie might be filming in the Bartlesville, Oklahoma area that is about 2 hours from my home. I read Mean Spirit in college and it was very compelling and I’ve been to Bartlesville several times with the kids to visit Woolaroc.
Do you prefer to read a paperback, hardcover, your Kindle, or to listen to audiobooks? I’m working this weekend on the farm. I’m doing some mortar tuckpointing and it might be nice to take a good audiobook along.
What do you recommend listening to?
