Hi! I love a good story and I love a good book. From children’s books, to graphic novels, to thrillers, to historical fiction, I enjoy reading most genres. If you look at my TBR pile, it is a testament to that fact. I love to talk about books and I enjoy sharing them with others, as why keep a good story to yourself. I remember as a young child, lying in my bed with the covers up over my head and a book propped up in front of my pillow. I would try to keep the flashlight steady under my chin, as I read the words on the page. I’ve taken some breaks over the years but I will always remember how books created a break from the real world for me, a place where I could escape for a while.
I was born and raised in the Midwest (U.S.A.) and I haven’t moved from this state since the day I was born. It may sound boring but this is home. Home: where the smell of Cheerios floats through the air some mornings, where you can sit outside with your neighbors and talk in the driveway under the stars, where you can see cows, eagles, and football rivalry games all in the same day, and where you can curl up with a good book under a blanket, a tree or even out in the sun and find yourself in another city or country that isn’t home.
I have three adult children, one elementary-age granddaughter, and two young grandsons. I live with my husband and our cat, Charlie. I am currently staying home to care for my grandson after quitting my job as a substitute teacher. I’m also an active volunteer at our local library.
Thanks for stopping by and reading my posts. Please leave me a comment or two and/or like/share a post. Have an amazing day.
