Question What Are You Reading?

According to researchers at the Mindlab International at the University of Sussex, reading for just six minutes can help reduce stress levels by up to 68 percent.

The study found that participants who read after having their stress elevated became more relaxed than participants who tried other stress relievers, like walking or listening to music.

So, to that end, what are you reading?

It's a pretty odd mix. Fiction tends to be Louis L'amour westerns or historical fiction. I like simple escapist quick reads. Otherwise it tends to be how to. Last couple have been Jet Tila's cookbooks and a book detailing Bob Loveless's (knifemaking legend) methods and techniques.

I just started “The Boy From the Woods” by Harlan Coben. I’ve been listening to my books on Audible, so I can knit at the same time.

Outlander, book 6.

I'm going to grab Stephen King's early release, too.

Reading is my stress reliever for sure!

I loved the Outlander series, but can't stand Stephen King.

I started re-reading the J.D. Robb "In Death" series in November. I've read them all already, but don't remember all of the details - including who the murderer is.

I read all the time and until the local library closed, I was there every week getting my armful for the week. Now I'm a little lost rereading many of my books on the shelf. Good thing I have quite a collection.
I loved The Dome!

Is that a good book? He's one of my favorite authors and I haven't read that one yet.


ATM I'm reading Courting Trouble by Lisa Scottoline. Like her a lot too.

I was going through the library's collection of James Patterson; seems I'd never read any of his before. Odd.

Did you ever get your new cell phone? If so, you might be able to borrow books from your library using the OverDrive app. You could also get the Kindle app for your phone and download free books from Amazon. I joined BookBub and they send me a list of low cost and free books every day that I can download.

I haven't used the OverDrive app yet so I'm not sure how easy/hard it is to use but the Kindle app is very easy. I would imagine OverDrive is probably similar. I'm tech-challenged, too, but was able to figure it out so I bet you could, too!

Not yet. Mine is still hanging in there which I can't believe. Procrastination is my middle name. But thank you for that info; I might need it sooner than later.

So far it’s good! I really liked ‘Run Away’ by him.

I also got the book amazon suggested based on my interest in it. That is the one I will probably be able to start by Friday night. - "Fair Play" by James Olson.

Other than continuous and lengthy updates from the department of health and licensing I have been trying to catch up on the books I have sitting on my tablet just waiting to be read...

The ones I am looking forward to starting most are the last few Stephen King books, a couple by Janet Evanovich, Stuart Woods and several Lisa Scottoline books.

I have a HUGE list of "to read" books but those are my usual go-to authors that I tend to reach for when I want to lose myself in something other than reality.

I just finished "Too Much and Not Enough" by Mary L. Trump. Very enlightening.

Right now, I am reading The Son and Heir by Alexander Münninghoff. It makes the events in the US this year seem petty and selfish in comparison.

I am reading the hunger games trilogy (for honestly like the 4th time). I am on the 3rd book, the slower moving part/beginning of the 3rd book.

Having trouble reading more than a few pages at a time.

Also have been working on HP and the Order of the Phoenix with my 8 year old.
