After my 'cry' for books to read I received 13 (!!!!) from Carol, Susan, Betsy and Bob and I must admit it was really fun getting back into reading.
They ranged from autobiographies and biographies of Sally Field, Vivien Leigh, Tom of Finland/Artist, Cary Grant to the best of Edgar Allen Poe, Great American Short Stories, 101 Great American Poems plus a few fiction novels and a major find for me of a Gay father writing to his Gay son which is a gem and that I have read 3 times--so far--standing up in the rear.
There is a certain feeling I have when I am lost in reading a book, other people's words that I don't get in magazines, papers, blogs, etc.
I am going to donate the books to the Gateway Library we have here for the residents!
