World Book Night 2014!

It’s World Book Night! But it’s too exciting to celebrate JUST at night, so I’m starting now.WBN

Stories are my life: I teach them, I write them, I read them, I sing them, I act them out, I talk about them, think about them. I have loved stories ever since I can remember. I used to drag my grandparents and all their neighbors into the front yard during my summer visits so I could perform original plays on the front porch. My friends were cast as supporting characters. The flowerbed became a jungle or a cave or some other dangerous world (sorry about that, Grandmother!). I read to relax, to escape, to learn, to connect, to dream…I read because I love it.

I know not everyone loves reading, but I really believe it’s because you just haven’t found the right book, yet. Not every book or every genre is for everybody. But there ARE books that you’ll love! So today, on World Book Night, I challenge you to give reading another try, if you’re one of those who doesn’t love reading. And if you’re like me – keep it up! Share your favorite stories here. I love getting recommendations!

My publisher, TNZ Fiction, has lots of great books: Young Adult, Suspense, Science Fiction, Romance, Historical… So celebrate World Reading Night by picking up a book – something new, an old favorite, anything. Because, in the words of my favorite author, “If a book is well-written, I always find it too short.” – Jane Austen

    I completely agree with Ms. Austen! The best books are never long enough! ๐Ÿ™‚
    I love to read – you’ll rarely find me without a book nearby. My favorite books that I’ve read recently are Meant to Be Mine by Becky Wade, Harvest of Rubies by Tessa Afshar, Raptor 6 by Ronie Kendig, and Dare to Love Again by Julie Lessman. ๐Ÿ™‚

    That is one of my absolute FAVORITE quotes! I read all the time! If I am caught up in a book, it’s the best feeling in the world. I loved reading Grace Unplugged by a Melody Carlson, Kisses From Katie by Katie Davis, and Live to Gove by Austin Gutwein. Currently I am reading the On The a runway series by Melody Carlson. I also plan on reading the Matched triolfy soon. Do you have any book reccomindations?

      Great choices!! Have you read anything by Jenny B Jones? She’s terrific. For a more sci-fi flavor, check out Shannon Dittemore’s Angel Eyes trilogy and Heather Burch’s Halflings. SO good!

        Well, Krista, I actually own Jenny’s series “The Big Picture”, but I haven’t read it yet. And I have seen The other books before but I never knew how sci if they were. Have you ever read the “Matched” Trilogy? I was looking at that one. And do you know any books with a romance type theme?
