Thought it would be fun to find out what you're reading. When I attend book signings I always ask the question that fascinates me the most and that's, WHAT ARE YOU READING?

I’m currently reading, The Anatomist's Wife (A Lady Darby Mystery).  It’s a debut novel by Anna Lee Huber and includes all the same kinds of things I love in the novels I write: a mystery,  a romance, it’s a historical set in Scotland which I also love but I’ve chosen to use England’s historical backdrop for my novels. It's not Christian fiction. Although I’m only at about chapter five the author has done a good job of hooking me. Be warned though that this novel is not for the squeamish. 

In the non-fiction department I’m reading Lucille Zimmerman’s, Renewed: Finding Your Inner Happy in an Overwhelmed World. This is a great book about taking care of ourselves. As counselor I love exploring new ways of taking care of myself and then passing on what I’ve learned to the college students I counsel.

So share what you’re reading with us today. Everyone who leaves a comment will be put in a drawing for one of my three novels: Secrets of the Heart, Chameleon, or Mystery of the Heart. The choice is yours. You can leave comments today and until Thursday (9/12/13) at midnight, Pacific time.  I’ll pick a winner via random.org and post it sometime Friday.
So let me hear from you. 

So, what are you reading?

I have way too many books on my TBR pile, but current read is Ronie Kendig's TALON and Janet Chapman's For The Love Of Magic. Both GREAT books so far. :)

Thanks for sharing your reads with us, Susan and Shirley. I have to get around to reading Ronie's books. I'm especially interested in Talon because there is a character, who is not a dog, in Chameleon, with the same name. :)

I'll be sure to check out those other books too, and I know those TBR piles can be daunting. That's why I like my Kindle. It doesn't look so overwhelming to me if I purchase books that way. I still love holding a book in my hands and turning the pages though. That will never grow old.

I am reading "A Cowboy at Heart" from The Amish Of Apple Grove series by Lori Copeland and Virginia Smith. I have one of Lena's books in my TBR pile. I'm looking forward to her book.
Thank you for the opportunity to participate in your giveaway.

Hi Barb,
The Amish books are everywhere! It's amazing. My buddy, Serena Miller's novel, Love Finds You in Sugar Creek, OH. is being made into a movie and I'm so excited for her. And I think all of us have at least one of Lena's books in our TBR piles. :) Thanks so much for allowing us to glimpse into your reading life.
