Simple topic. Have you read any good books lately? Or are you reading anything really good right now? If you had to pick one, what is your favorite book? Do you have any favorite authors?
I'll start! I joined a new book club a few months ago, and right now, we're reading Murder on the Orient Express. I don't think I'd ever really read any Agatah Christy novels before, though I remember my brother reading them when I was a kid. I'm a little surprised to say that I am really enjoying it! That book gave me goosebumps as I was reading it last night.
My favorite book is probably a tie between The Secret History by Donna Tartt and The Power of One by Bryce Courtenay. The latter was a book I chose for summer reading in high school, and I still really like it. I haven't reread it in a while though, perhaps I should.
I'm really trying to get back into reading (I fell into a multi-year period where I wasn't really reading any books, just blogs, newspapers, and online news). Are there any other regular (or avid) readers out there?
