I am really a reader. My favorite time of day is when I head to bed after a shower and read until I fall asleep. These days it's more late than early, and it's nothing for me to look up and see it's 2:00 am.
Anyway, I've decided to keep a list of books I read over on the side bar and rate them from 1-5 stars. I'm calling it books of 2015, but I've started it early.
I just read a book I loved and wanted it on the list! The Book of Strange New Things by Michel Faber is so good!! First, let me tell you that I don't like normal books. Don't mention Debbie MaComber to me. I can't get through them. Books I like have to be different. And this one sure is!
It's about a Christian missionary in the future who goes to another planet to minister to the race who have been found there. I give it 5 stars!!! And I don't give my stars lightly.
Let me add that I don't buy books anymore. Ever since I discovered my library's ebook check out system, that is all I use. I can have 15 at a time on hold and can check out about that many, but I never do. I keep up with NPR Books on Facebook and read their reviews and recommendations. I keep an eye on Book Riot, as well. I often tell my husband how much money I've saved him, but maybe he'll believe me when he sees my list.
I thought we were going to do this on Judy's Patchwork Times, but I guess it fell by the wayside along with Comfort and Joy!! (Still finishing up the border applique on that one!)
