No, not like that!! (Sheesh! Some people!!) I just need some new authors to read.
You see, I love to read (I'm sure I've mentioned that before!). I also read very quickly, especially if it's a new book from one of my favorite authors! I have learned over the years to at least TRY to ration the amount that I permit myself to read of a brand new book I just purchased, otherwise I have been known to finish a book on the same day I start it! That's very frustrating and annoying! Especially back before the bottom fell out of publishing (you know, back when we were willing to spend $25 or $30 for a hardcover book.) It has happened more than once that a favorite writer will not complete or release a new book more than once a year. If I then read it in a couple of days....well, that's a long time to wait for the next one to come along! I'm working on the problem, but it's hard to change something like that.
The second thing that's a problem for me is that when I find an author I really enjoy, I will then proceed to read everything every written by that person. Sooner or later I've read all of their published work, some more than once, and I am stuck waiting till the next time they publish. And there is no way to speed them up!
Anyway I have gone through a number of authors through the years and I am in the market for some new writers to try. Well at least new to me! I try to expand my horizons by getting books from the library so I can reduce my expenses and maybe find new favorites. That hasn't happened lately. For some reason, I haven't found anyone new in a while. All I've been doing is realizing that I've already read half of the books I check out! So I'm asking for your help. "I'm Looking for Someone (New) to Love." Would you share your favorite writers with me?
Just to give us a fighting chance for some success here, I listed below some of the writers that I already love and have read everything they've done:
John J. Nance
Susan Wittig Albert
Susan Elizabeth Phillips
J. A. Krentz
Dorothea Benton Frank
Anne Rivers Siddons
There are, of course, others; but these are the ones that come to mind at the moment. Who do you love?
