Norse Mythology

My hub got me a copy of Neil Gaiman's Norse Mythology for my birthday. I loved everything about it, except that I was sad when it ended and wished it would have been 900 pages.

 I also bought a Kindle today. I find it hard to read paper books because my eyesight is rubbish so I'm hoping that it will be easier to read books electronically. (I read books on my phone all the time but it is rather small.)

What books are you reading? What authors do you recommend?

Best thoughts,

Marilyn

  2. I am reading Living the Quaker Way by Philip Gulley on my Kindle. I love my Kindle. I can read in bed in the dark. I can adjust the font size and brightness. I can slip it into my bag when I'm out and about. I usually read crime fiction rubbish, so I can't recommend any authors. But happy reading anyway!

    1. Jean, I'll check out Living the Quaker Way. And I'm not a fussy reader as long as it's a good yarn so suggest anything that you couldn't put down. Best, Marilyn.

  3. I enjoyed reading The Secret Horses of Briar Hill by Megan Shepherd, the two Candymakers books by Wendy Mass, and The Rooftoppers by Katherine Rundell, all of which are filled with magic of just the right kind. I appreciate my Kindle, for all the reasons mentioned above, including the ability to carry around an entire library in my hand. Love the quotes and the exquisite illustrations!

    1. Thanks, Marcia! I'm tempted to sign up for the all the books you can read for ten bucks a month or just go broke reading all these lovelies. Off to check out your suggestions. Hugs, M

  4. I've been listening to the Norse Mythology audiobook & loving it, too. So far I'm half-way through and I took too long, waiting for it to be available again through the library. Love your pics about it.
    Try "Wool" by Hugh Howey... and I'd suggest not reading the blurb - the discovery about the characters situation was pretty good.
