If you check my Kindle I am currently reading Last Exit In New Jersey by C.E. Grundler. I am also constantly checking out The Productive Writer by Sage Cohen, and Ready, Aim, Specialize! by Kelly James-Enger.
If you look carefully at The Kindle photo above, you will see three books with “New” next to them! This brings me to:

I was at BookExpo America and the Book Bloggers Convention last week. Publishers and authors were handing out advanced reading copies of upcoming book titles, many of which are slated to be published this summer and fall.
In other words, FREE books. The photo above includes many of the books I got last week – for FREE!
Some of these books I will probably review, and others I’ll just enjoy reading for myself!
I will be posting later this week about the two conventions!

Somehow, despite having a Kindle and giving many of my books to charity, print books keep wandering back into my apartment. It’s because I live in an area that is book OBSESSED. In the spring there are many used book sales, where folks line up before the doors are opened for the day!
I have promised myself that I will improve my artistic skills, so I went to the latest sale to buy some art books. Not art history books, but instructional books. I bought the beautiful hardcover book above How to Paint and Draw by Hazel Harrison, and also two of Betty Edwards’ classic instructional books:
Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain is the best-selling drawing instruction book in history.
I also bought two books to read about my New Jersey obsession:
The Pine Barrens by John McPhee — classic even if dated:
