Books – My Passion


I love to read.  I read books, magazines, articles, blogs, etc.  My parents were avid readers so I guess that is where I got it from.  I like the feel of a book in my hands, turning the pages and reading the words that someone worked so diligently on.

I do have a Nook and read books on that.  It easy to take with you when you travel.  I also have Kindle on my laptop.

I like a variety of books – fiction, non-fiction, self-help, etc. Right now I am reading “In An Instant” by Bob and Lee Woodruff.  Bob Woodruff is an ABC journalist and was hit by an IED while he was in Iraq.  Half his brain was blown off but he recovered and is still an ABC correspondent.  It is an interesting read and I like that both he and his wife write from their own perspective about that day, what lead up to that day, and the road to recovery.

Some of my favorite books are:  “Eat, Pray, Love” by Elizabeth Gilbert, “The Guerney Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society” by Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrow, and “The Lost Memoirs of Jane Austen” by Syrie James.  The above mentioned books were entertaining and drew me in quickly and I did not want to put the book down.

Other books that I read to open my mind and expand my well being such as:  “My Stroke of Insight” by Jill Bolte Taylor, PhD. A true story about Dr. Taylor who has a stroke and is able to recover all the details of having a stroke and recovery.  “Strength In The Storm” by Easioaram and” Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff” by Richard Carlson, PhD.

These are a few of favorites and all are very different from each other.  Reading is a way to learn more, know more and a great way to use your imagination.  What are some of your favorite books and why?
