By Jodie Hook
Books are making a huge comeback. Regardless of the format, Nook, Kindle, library or buying a book in paperback or hardback, people seem to be finding their passion for a good book again.
Word spreads through my office if someone is reading a great book, and usually it passes hands many times before making its way back to the owner. As I have gotten older, now married with a 5 year old, I have rediscovered that passion myself and love nothing more than getting lost in a great story.
I become consumed in the characters, the love, the pain, all of it. I have been found more than once stirring dinner with one hand, the other holding up my book to just read one more paragraph, which usually turns into 2 or 3 more pages. I know I am not alone in this and I hope that for anyone that has forgotten how satisfying reading can be, or who has no idea what else to read, this blog will be of use to you.
This blog will be a celebration of that passion.
Welcome to the “Book Nook”. I hope we can experience some new, great books together as an informal discussion group. The books selected will be new releases, typically from the Best Sellers list, although I will always be open to suggestions. I will let you all know at the beginning of the month which book the review will be on. This will give anyone interested an opportunity to buy or borrow the book. Around the 3rd week of each month, I will post my review and then would love to know what everyone else thought of the book.
With all the buzz, I thought the best way to start this discussion group would be with, “50 Shades of Grey” by E.L. James.
I look forward to what I know will be fun and thoughtful opinions on this book and on the many that will follow it. Thank you all for reading!
About the Author:
After getting married and having a baby, life took over and I stopped reading for a few years. Anytime I would try and pick up a book – diapers, dinners and a number of other things put a stop to that. Now that my daughter is a little older, I have made an effort to get back to my passions, writing and reading books. I have been an avid reader since childhood and my best memories are of hiding under my blanket with a flashlight and a great book. For me, reading a great book isn’t just something to do for an hour or two, it’s something I get lost in. I can read half a book without realizing I have turned a page. If the book is really good, I dream at night that I am the characters and have even been known to walk around in the haze of the world created only in the fiction I have read. I hope to share my passion for reading all genres of books with you and hope that we can have some great discussions.
