Welcome to Purple Dragon Books, the blog where I will write about different books that I have read. I haven’t decided for sure yet, but I think some posts will be at least somewhat like the reviews on books I use to post at Epinions.com - before the site ended the ability to post reviews - and others might just be me talking a little bit of what I am currently reading, want to read, or things like that.
I have loved to read since I was a child. I read all of the Ramona books - at least I think I did - before my mother got me my first Nancy Drew mystery. I got hooked on mysteries at that point, and I still enjoy them. I also still have my Nancy Drew books packed away somewhere. I do like a wide variety of books, though in the last several years, I think I have read more cozy mysteries than anything.
When I really enjoy a book, I will read it again...and again...and again. So I will probably, at some point, end up mentioning some books more than once. I have actually been thinking about starting in on my Harry Potter books again - yes I love Harry Potter - even though it hasn’t been a year yet since I last read them and I still have, well, never mind how many books piled around, waiting to be read. When I was younger, I would just have one or two books that I hadn’t read, and I would wait to get more. That is no longer the case. Usually when I find a book that I think I might like, I’ll go ahead and get it then regardless of how many books I still have waiting to read at home. Sometimes I jump right into one of the newer purchases, and other times they sit and wait a while. I think that now something just wouldn’t feel right to me if I didn’t have several new book options at any time.
So far this year, I haven’t had a lot of time to read thanks to long hours at work, though in the last month or so, I have managed to get some reading done. Hopefully in about two weeks I’ll have more time for reading - as well as movies, and writing.
