    I love to read...Hubby got me a NOOK last year. I recently read Killing Lincoln and really loved it. I am reading Killing Jesus right now.

    I love real books, but e-books make it so much easier/more convenient sometimes

    Got my new Kindle Paperwhite 6" 3G next generation ,, love that I can turn off the lights and read, it's one step up from reading on your phone for the 6" screen just perfect from too small and too big to be pocket size, plus you can dim the back light to what feels easy on your eyes so your not blinding yourself in the dark ... lots of ways to organize your books and how the kindle looks.. My only thing is it feels heavy in hand .. I don't remember my DH's paperwhite which is a before model feeling this heavy .. that would be the only Con, everything else is just awesome... The book cover for it is really nice just fits right into the cover and I love the touch screen as the DX had the buttons to press..

    am reading Enders Game Loved the movie so wanted to read the details the movie didn't have enough time to include..

    Ender's game (and the books that come after it) is very good. I hope you enjoy it Patricia.

    There is a whole series, but even though i like almost everything that Orson Scott Card wrote, IMO the first two were the best: Ender's game and Speaker for the dead.

    I just finished the second book in the 'Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children' series (Ransom Riggs). It's clear that there will indeed need to be at least a 3rd book.

    I'm currently re-reading the Into The Wilderness series by Sara Donati. I just can't get enough of her characters and their world.

    Be warned, it's a historical fiction and I've noticed with those types of books that people usually either love them or hate them. Let me know if you end up reading them!
