Books, books, and more books

What has Kelley read lately?  Take a look at the list below.

I decided to keep track of the books that I read, out of a sense of accomplishment for myself.   I also have chosen to do it to show my faithful blog readers what I have been reading, both the good and the bad (I do love my romantic books too!)  I try to read a mix of fiction and non-fiction, although I read more fiction that non-fiction just because it is easier for me to get through a fiction book.    My non-fiction preference is American History, as you will see the more I update this list, but I am open to suggestions on any book people might think fascinating.

My favorite medium for reading right now is my basic first generation Kindle e-reader, just because it is easier to carry around with me and fits in my purse and school bag better than a book, plus if I finish a book I have more on the Kindle.  It doesn't stop me from reading an old fashioned book though!  I have been checking e-books out of my public library for the most part.  (Did you know most libraries have e-books for checkout?).  I also download many free books from Amazon.

 This list was started 10 April 2014.  I have read numerous books before then - I just didn't want to put them on this list since I can't remember the dates I read them.

"Read how?" means the means by which I read the book - whether it was it a print book or a book I read on my Kindle .
