I’ve always been a reader, but genealogy has gotten me into some different areas of reading.  I’ve read; how-to books, local history books, genealogy fiction, and many others. I have a wish list of books to read, a mile long, and I’d like to share what I’m reading and what I have on my wish list.

I know many of you still love to read a “real” book, and I do too, but over the years, I’ve decided that I want to downsize. So I decided that would read digital books so I could bring my entire library with me.

Did you know that you can get the Kindle app, which will work on other devices? Your smartphone, your tablet, your iPad.

What I’m Reading Now

I just finished the book, The Match by Harlan Coben. I actually listened to the audio version in my car. Now that I’ve moved to the country, I find that this is a great way to get some reading done.

This book is the second book in a series. The first is The Boy from the Woods where we are introduced to the character Wilde. Who was abandoned in the woods. But it’s not necessary to read this one to enjoy The Match (although I listened to that one too).

I especially liked The Match because it included in the storyline that the main character Wilde has done a DNA test trying to understand who his biological parents are so he can learn why he was abandoned in the woods as a child. I won’t tell you anything more but just know that I found myself sitting in front of the house after arriving home because I didn’t want to stop listening.

Orphan Train Rider: One Boy’s True Story

This tells the true story of Lee, who was an Orphan Train rider, but it also has a lot of interesting history and information about the Orphan Train movement between 1854 and 1930.
