How I Read a Book
I thought it would be fun to share "how" we each read books!
Here's how I read:
Format: I don't own an e-reader yet - gasp, I know - maybe someday. So I read hard copies.
Time: The best reading time for me is at naptime or bedtime.
How: I read pretty piecemeal, meaning in starts and stops, a little at a time. On rare occasion, I may stay up to finish a book. But I need sleep so that doesn't happen very often.
Where: I read on my bed - it's the most comfy spot.
Secret: I sneak and read the ending! That's probably more shocking than not having an e-reader, right? :) But when I can't stand not knowing another minute how the hero and heroine are going to get together - or if I want to find out if a good kiss is coming - then I totally skip ahead to see what happens. Once I know, I'm good to go back and keep reading!
What about you? E-reader or hard copy? Day-time reader, night-time reader or stay-up-until it's finished reader? Where's your favorite reading spot? Do you ever sneak a peek at the ending or patiently wait for all to be revealed?

No one would ever imagine a fresh-faced young woman could be robbing stage bandits of their ill-gotten fortunes. But Jennie Jones is desperate to save her family's ranch from foreclosure. And the risks seem worth it, until her upright new ranch hand offers a glimpse of how much is really at stake.
Former bounty hunter Caleb Johnson is ready for a new, clean start. With a woman like Jennie, he could build a future there in Utah territory. But only if his gentle faith can guide her in a choice between the land she's fought so hard to save and a future by his side.
