Books to Read by the Fire /Top 5 Wednesday

Standard

Do you love to snuggle to read books? If yes, then you are in for a treat this week with Top 5 Wednesday. We are visiting five books to read by the fire,  so go ahead to the Goodreads groups, you may find books you forgot about and books you love. It is a time for you to have a chat with other book lovers about those books.

Let us dive into it:

1. Romance Novel

This is  my review of the book:

My first read for 2014, I know, hold the knives! (Grins). It is an amazing story of how two people, guided by God, submitted to love, eradicating barriers of fear and stubbornness to conquer their doubts, in the end. It is a heartwarming read for cold weather!

Most Read/Owned Authors

Standard
Reading

Via Wikipedia with modification

Normally, I use Goodreads to keep track of the books that I remember reading. When I store such information on the best book media on earth, the system gives me in return statistics with little effort. An example is the most read authors from my list. I realize from that stat, I do not normally read more than one book from many authors. The only authors I have read more than three/four books is Jane Austen, that would make sense because she is my favourite author.

In addition, my most read authors corresponds with my most owned authors. Now I have a small physical library of not more than 100 books (not counting the borrowed never returned- my heart still cries for especially one copy), so it is easy to keep track of the authors. Some usually stay on my mind even if I read only one book for example Harper Lee but other times authors names are not on the tip of my tongue. It is only just a few years back, I made an effort to remember authors. It may sound stupid but my aim is always to recall the story and perhaps the book title. I guess this is why many of the books I read before I cannot recollect the author or title but mere fragments of the story.

Some of my most read/owned authors:

Jane Austen

Philippa Gregory

Debra White Smith

James Patterson

Books: Help Me Remember

Standard

Reading

Have you ever experienced that feeling of remembering some details for a book that you read some ages ago but the memory stops there. Sometimes you cannot recall the characters names but you can give tidbits of the places they visited and some of their family background. Even more of a challenge is absolutely zero recollection of the author or even the name of the book.
