I love to read and can easily blow through three to five e-books in a weekend. That can be an expensive proposition and discouraging when trying to find new authors to read. It's a shame to spend $4 to $7 on a book only to find you don't like it. My Kindle Unlimited subscription helps with that.
Another great resource is Instafreebie. They offer books each week, free to read in a variety of genres and e-book formats. This is totally legit and books are given free by the authors. This helps you discover new authors without a lot of money upfront and this allows authors to get you hooked on (and buying) their other works. It also garners book reviews for them on popular online stores. It's a win win for everyone.
I'm always marveling at how other writers are readers too. I enjoy checking in with my favorite authors and see what floats their boat. So I thought I'd share what I'm reading.
Of course, one thing you should know about me is I rarely ever have ONE book going at a time. I'm reading things for my personal study (just plain learn), I read things for research on projects, I re-read old favorites when I'm stressed out, and I read a good romance when I want to decompress. Sometimes I may plow through three or four of the latter in a weekend and then be off them for a bit while I read other stuff.
So what am I reading today...?

I'm a writer... so that means I write a bunch. Blogs are just the pieces that never make it into the final cut.
