Morning Meanderings… I Like BIG Books


Morning everyone.  🙂  I am at Camp Benedict this week, doing my thing as a board member.  It has been beautiful this week so far, talk of rain possible for today and tomorrow but right now looking at a clear blue sky I am not seeing it.


I have been helping with craft projects, lining up horse back riding, massages, a few pranks (* ok, really only one where I took another board members shower curtain).  😉

I have been reading a little :


My roommate, Camryn (from my YA review tab) also brought a few reading materials with her:


Sheila DeChantal, Book JOurney

Camryn is 15.


As I have been mentioning, it is audiobook month and I am hopeful that you have had a chance to check out the audio related posts that I have been putting up this month.  Remember, we are having a giveaway this month:


Please watch this site for June audio book related posts.  For every post you comment on in June that has this audio book symbol:

  1. Andrea (aka Rokinrev)

    I have been known for picking THE biggest thickest paperbacks since I read so fast…whether I know the author or not! In 91 when I went to Germany, I read everything I had brought (Colleen McCollough….BTBradford….) and needed a book for the plane back to the states and got a wonderful book on the Battle of Halifax…think MEGA mass market…(only english book in the bookstore)….was very good

  2. Did you get to listen to any audio as you drove to camp?! Long drives are too perfect for audio.

  3. Okay you can’t post a picture of a big book like that and not tell us what it is!!! Lol

  4. I’m not a fan of big books myself…unless it’s by Stephen King. I do make other exceptions if it’s something that looks really good. I loved Zoya by Danielle Steele and it’s over 500 pages.

  5. My sister loves to buy chunksters – she says she gets more for her money that way.

  6. eReaders are good for big books — no so heavy!

  7. since I have more time to listen than to read I try to do ‘big’ books on audio. Some of my ‘big’ book authors are George R.R. Martin, Diana Gabaldon, Philappa Gregory and Ken Follett
