Blogs and Books
Most of you who read my blog know that I am going through a difficult time in my life. A sad time. A hard time. And I don't know what I would do if it weren't for my blog and my blogging friends. Even if they don't stop by everyday I am grateful when they do. And they always leave such encouraging words. I have met some amazing women (and a couple of men) since I started blogging. Teachers and nurses. Mothers and photographers. Young women and middle-age women. From all over the United States and all over the world. We converse with each other through our blogs. And sometimes we email. And soon I hope to meet a couple of you in person. Coming to visit me via my blog has kept me sane. Has kept me company. Has kept me connected. I am thankful for all of you.
And my other escape is books. I have always been a voracious reader. This has slowed down some since Richard's stroke. But I still read everyday. It just takes me longer to get through a book now. I have my Nook Color loaded with a variety of reading material. I read magazines and blogs as well as books on my Nook. I love my Nook. Best Christmas present I ever received. Well, dang near the best. I mostly like reading thrillers and mysteries but once in awhile I will read a biography or a book with something about history. Usually though I just want to get lost in the story. Escape. You know what I mean?
Tell me what kinds of books and blogs do you like to read?
This is day 20! What? I can't believe it is already day 20 in the 30 Days of Thanksgiving. Go here if you want to see what else I am writing about.
