I've been lurking around some online discussion groups lately, on the "What are you reading?" threads. This seems to be one of the most popular topics on sites like Kindle Boards and Shelfari, and members never seem to get sick of it. The discussions go on and on with thousands of posts. On Shelfari, I joined a group of sci-fi readers discussing the topic. I thought I'd get tired of hearing about people's reading choices, or run out of things to say about my own, but it's endlessly fascinating. I'm getting lots of good reading recommendations, but more than that, I'm getting to talk about books and authors I love, and understand why others love what they do. Sometimes, we female sci-fi readers feel like outsiders, but I don't anymore; I've found so many kindred spirits out there. Not only is reading not considered nerdy any more, (if it ever was) but reading sci-fi doesn't seem to be either.
So I ask you to comment on this blog and let me know: what are you reading? Any genre, any author. I'm dying to hear!
