CELEBRATING TERRIFIC TUESDAYS!
Remember when growing up it was fun to sit on the sofa and read on a rainy day. I still do that only rarely do I do it on the sofa. I have an old chair at my house that I love. It is a rattan swivel rocker that used to belong to a set of furniture that I had. Over at the old house we had a sun room that was perfect for this kind of furniture. After I moved to where I am now, I inherited the living room set I have now and gave the rattan set away. I kept the rocker though because I love how it feels.
I pull it over to my computer desk and use it there too. It is rather large and sticks out like a sore thumb so I push it in the corner and put the desk chair in place when I have company come. Reading is a part of my life and I do so enjoy it. I’ve been going to the public library lately instead of buying books and I’ve been very happy as every time I’ve gone I’ve found some very good books.
Fern Michaels, Mary Higgens Clark, Debbie Macomber and Danielle Steel are some of my favorite authors. The only trouble I’ve run into is that sometimes I choose too many books to read in the time allotted and I’ve had to take some back unread. That’s not a problem though as they will be there another time that I need something to read.
The nice thing is that with everything on computer these days, I get a print out of what I checked out at the library and when it is due back too. I’ve been keeping these slips so that I can remember what I’ve read. I do hate to get into a book and find out I’ve already read it.
I can usually read 8 to 10 books a month and I’m sure I’ll be reading more when my retirement comes. It seems that when I read the time flies by and if it’s a really good book and I’m home I’ll read it all in one day. I haven’t had the chance to do that lately but the time is coming soon when I can.
I also have friends that pass books along to me and I already have a stack of those ready to take to the camper so that when summer is here and I am there, I won’t have to worry about returning books to the library. I’ve noticed too that the camp store often has gently used books on a shelf where other campers share what they are reading.
Needless to say my reading won’t be till evening today…as it’s Tuesday and off to work I go.
Have a TERRIFIC Tuesday everyone!
