I was just updating my 52 Books or More page and realized I’m behind in my reading. I have 2 books I’m working on now so I may be able to have all 52 books ready by Dec 31.
There are many books that I began and didn’t finish because – sometimes life is too short to read bad books. And other times, the story didn’t grab me. And other times, it wasn’t my kind of book.
For the books I did read and love, well … all I can say is Thank You to the authors. They took me to places that felt good, that scared me and welcomed me. They touched emotions that were hidden away like old china in a dark closet. Some books made me laugh out loud and taught me things I didn’t know. Some books made me want to learn more about a person, place or thing.
What I found interesting during the last month is I often had a book at the top of my head when I was out walking. I finished my exercise with a longing to get back to the book and find out what happens next.
So, what now? On my list is a mystery titled 61 Hours by Lee Childs and The Gravity of Birds by Tracy Guzeman. Recently read and returned to the library was The Nighingale by Kristin Hannah and Career of Evil by Robert Galbraith (JK Rowling) – so – I’m in good hands as the days get shorter and darker. I have my books to keep me company.
Sleep well friends and stay in touch!
