Oh, yeah. Whenever I have time, I read. I especially love Stephen King. He is like my fave author of all time. I am currently working on his 'Dark Tower' series (7 books and all of them are over 500 pages). For some reason, I really like his super long novels; It, Insomnia, Dreamcatcher, etc, etc..... I am also a huge Jeffrey Deaver fan. I also love the Earth's Children series by Jean Auel (sp?). I am a sucker for the big books because I get started and don't want to stop. If I have nothing else to do, I can do 1,100 pages in a day. I am considering getting into the Harry Potter books. When the movies first started coming out, I thought they were stupid but I have recently started watching them and gotten more interested. I may just get them from the library instead of buying them until I can find out whether I like them and will want to read them again or not.
2 books that absolutely everyone needs to read are "A child called it" and "The lost boy" by Dave Pelzer. They are true stories written by the guy that it happened to. It will make you sick and furious and heartbroken but it is also an incredibly inspirational story.
Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/
