Where have I been?

I haven’t updated my blog in awhile. The wind kind of went out of my sails over the past few months. But I’ve been keeping busy. Very busy.

In addition to my regularly scheduled work, I started doing some books reporting for the paper. Those of my friends who recall it will know I once had a books blog going that was strong and regularly updated … until I got a job.

The joke now is that after I graduated, I rejoiced that I would have time to read again. I wouldn’t have to read philosophy and communication/journalism theory books. I started reading books I bought years ago and had intended to read. But now I’m back to required reading.

And I love it.

So here’s what I’ve been up to over the last few months, in reverse chronological order:

I interviewed Stuart Woods.

I interviewed John Sandford.

I interviewed Sue Grafton.

I interviewed Patricia Cornwell.

I covered Stuart Woods’ appearance at a local fundraiser.

I interviewed Kristin Hannah.

I previewed an event featuring two authors.

Yesterday, I covered the above event. It was supposed to feature the two authors, but one had to cancel because of a family emergency. My next interviews are Jodi Picoult (also covering her appearance here) and Harlan Coben.

So here’s what I want to know: What are you reading right now? What are your favorite authors? What kind of book reviews do you read, if any?
