Get off your duff and start reading !!

I love reading, at least I used to. When I worked full time, most lunch hours you would find me reading. Since I "retired" back in Oct. 2003 I have read maybe 4 books. I've read heaps of magazines, the articles are short and sweet. As I was reading some of my favorite blogs today, Mary Kathryn mentioned Good Reads and a bulb went off, what a good way to get back into one of my favorite hobbies. I tired signing up, only to find I had already signed up back in June, that will be for another posting entitled "She Forgets". Since I am already signed up for Good Reads I should probably use it. I am starting tonight with a book I have by Danielle Steel called "The Gift". I read this when it first came out in 1994, and am sure I will enjoy it today as much as I did then.

Thanks to the messages about my printer, I was able to get what I needed off their web site. Just have to get more ink cartridges now. :)

I'm told that when you retire, you're busier than ever so I can believe it. LOL! That's a great way to get back into it. Do you have a local library. I find myself going there a lot now, especially with so many authors I want to try reading :o)

You will have to keep us posted as you read your book. Have fun reading.

Thanks for leaving a comment on my blog. I love to read too. I just finished a couple of books "High Noon" by Nora Roberts, and "up Close and Dangerous" by Linda Howard. Both were good reads, although the Linda Howard wasn't her best one I've read. I am off tonight to the bookstore to purchase one that just came out by Jayne Castle.
