I have loved to read since I was little. I would borrow many books from the library and still borrow to this day, but I also purchase books (mostly for my kids) and freebies on Kindle. I read as much as I can daily. Sometimes I read several books at one time. I don't have a preference of paper book over an ebook, I just love to read. Keeping lists of what I have read is a good way for me to remember.
I saw the movie with Brooke Shields and thought it was interesting and found the books at the library and read the first book in the series. I was not fond of the main character as she seemed a bit flighty. I do note that the book was better than the movie.
