Books are Magical

Published on 17 May 2023 at 16:45

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.
