It has been a busy summer of reading. My list grew as I became involved in blog tours and read reviews on other blogs. As always, I enjoy a reading challenge and found myself reading a variety of genres and styles. It's a good thing I read quickly as my reading list is always growing. Here are some questions from LDS Publisher about the book trek.
1. How many fiction books by LDS authors did you read?
2. Did you read more than you would have read if you hadn't participated in this book trek?
3. Did the reviews posted by other participants influence which titles you read? How?
-Yes. I love getting suggestions from other readers.
4. Did the Whitney awards influence which titles you read? How?
-No. I had already read all the Whitney nominees.
5. Did the many, many virtual blog tours that happened this summer influence which titles you read? How?
-The virtual blog tour influenced me because I was involved in many of them and ended up reading books I might not have picked up otherwise.
6. Did you finish all the books you had planned to read? If not, why?
-No. I didn't get to the Red Dragon Codex because I am waiting for my youngest daughter to read it and she isn't quite as fast as I am.
7. Did you discover any new authors whom you now love?
-Yes. I'm really looking forward to more by Janet Jensen and Stephanie Black.
8. Did you nominate any of the books you read for Whitney awards?
9. Would you be interested in another LDS themed reading challenge either this winter, or next summer?
-I love any reading challenge.
