 I have been a bookworm all of my life.
Because I was a late life child, my mom and siblings read to me daily.  Honestly I don't remember when I started to read but it seems I have held a book in my hands my whole life. They always gave me a book to read when I was being a pest.  I was often a pest.
Rick knows when I am too sick to read we are in trouble.  Sunday and Monday I was too sick to read.  Today was couch and book day.  I am better.

Through the years we have given nieces and nephews and friend's kids books as gifts.  Some have been happy, some not so happy.  Last year we gave Jordan a Books -A- Million gift card for his birthday.  He spent two hours picking out his books.  He is getting another gift card this year, January 29.  His mom knows they will be in the book store for awhile.  But she is good with that.

Sending you all hopes that you find the perfect book to read this week.  Let me know what you picked out.
Goodnight, Sweet dreams


  1. I love to read also. I just finished a freebie book from Amazon called "Taking Flight" about a young man who ends up on a traveling adventure with an elderly man who has Alzheimer's. It struck a cord with me for some reason. So glad you're feeling better. Hopefully you'll be 100% soon!

  2. Books have taken me to so many times and places. It would be a lonely world without them. I am re-reading Alice In Wonderland (again). I like reading a whole series like that.

  3. I don't read as much now since i have less spare time but I do love books also.
    I'm glad you're feeling better.

  4. Jilda, glad you are better. Yes, books open up a brand new world. It is a great way to travel and to see things that we may never see.

  5. I hope that all is well with you and Rick and the rest of the family. Wish you a great New Year. I would donate any unused books to the library or to a school even.
