I have always loved to read ...
reading takes me wherever I want to go - to another place, another time.
However, grief has changed my reading habits.
It is more difficult to keep my attention in a book, for my thoughts and memories wander more often these days.
I get lost in remembering the many, many, many books that Rick and I shared - how that we would read them often aloud to one another ...
and how that we always discussed the books we were reading individually or together.
I miss that.
I find now that if a book does not totally grab my attention in the first few pages, I might as well lay it aside for perhaps another time.
I have a growing list of books that I want to read - I know it will just take me time to find that "moment" of reading.
My tastes have changed as well since becoming a widow.
I still enjoy an edge of inspirational romance, but it must have a substance to the plot. Just a "boy meets girl" story line doesn't do it for me anymore.
I enjoy historical novels. American History & Texas History are my passions. And The American West.
I also enjoy some of the legal thrillers.
Some of my favorite authors & books - -
Grace Livingston Hill
Brenda Wilbee - the Sweetbriar Bride series
