I'm about halfway through Cyndy Salzmann's story Dying to Decorate. It continues to hold my interest and tickle my funny bone big-time! When I want a more romantic read I pick up the historical Rekindled by Tamera Alexander.
I haven't taken a crack at Death in the Desert since July 4th. It just isn't pulling me at the moment. I pulled out a Heartsong by Susan May Warren called Letters From the Enemy and put it in my purse for leisurely reading, like when I'm waiting around and need a good book to peruse. :) Finally, I cracked open Ticket to Tommorow by Carol Cox. So far, so good. I love the absent-minded professor character. What a hoot!
In regards to writing-related books, I pulled out Description by Monica Wood to finish. My interest in the book fizzed out about six months ago when I came across the points of view (first, second and third) chapter. Since I just started a first person POV past tense chick-lit style series about three social workers, I decided to review that section when I'm in the mood for non-fiction.
My reading has slowed down a bit since I started this latest project, but I hope to finish at least one more book this weekend. I have a friend coming from Phoenix to visit, so if we aren't up late at night gabbing and chowing on chocolate, I may get some reading done. :)
