Recommended Reading for May

It’s been awhile since we’ve posted anything in Reading Corner, but rest assured we always have a book in hand around here.

Right now I have a few books in progress that I’d like to share with everyone. The first is free for Kindle users, or those who like to read Kindle books on their PC (personally I like to use my Netbook to read in bed!).


Great Expectations
There aren’t too many people who haven’t heard of this book, since it’s a very old classic. So old, in fact, that it’s now listed as a Public Domain book on Amazon. This means if you snag the electronic version from Kindle, it’s free.

Great Expectations isn’t a book for everyone, especially if you’ve seen the movie. It’s a difficult book to read because of the older style of writing, but can be quite enjoyable if you manage to get into the story line. Personally I find it hard to read, but still have the desire to finish it.


Nightmares & Dreamscapes

First off, let me say I love Stephen King. He is by far my favorite author because of his creative imagination, story telling ability, and style of writing. However, some of his novels can be hard for the average person to read because of their length. That’s where this book comes in.

Nightmares and Dreamscapes has been sitting beside my bed for quite a few months. It’s a collection of short stories writen by Mr. King, so it’s a perfect book to have sitting when you need a quick story or two in between novels. I highly recommend adding this to your book collection, even if you don’t plan to read the entire book immediately.


100 Ways to Improve Your Writing

This book, obviously, is only going to appeal to those who are in the business of writing. I felt the need to add it to the list, though, since I do recommend it to anyone looking to improve their writing. Each tip is short, and can be easily applied to current writing. Since I’m always looking to improve, I’ve found this book extremely useful.


That’s it for my list for the month! If you have any book suggestions, please feel free to leave a comment. 🙂


One thought on “Recommended Reading for May

  1. I used to read scads of books as a young lady, but blogging has cooled it for the last 10 years. I’m starting to return to reading more books at night, they help me relax.

    Of course, my favorite book is the Bible. I’ve read it many times. It’s not like a story book, though!! More like instruction for life. 🙂

    I also liked “Gone With the Wind.” And Mark Twain’s “Innocents Abroad” is amazing.
