Yesterday time just got away from me so I am a little late posting my Whole Lotta Love. Will be back tonight for Day 8. So do you love it read? I have had a love for books since I was a small child and we could order books from the weekly reader through our school.
As a young girl I loved to read the "Trixie Beldom" series. They were similar to Nancy Drew and were mystery books. I saved all my books and gave them to Holly when she was old enough to read them. However she had no interest in them and she has them now for Darbee Rae.
Remember the Doubleday Book Club? My parents let me join when I was in middle school and I would be so excited to get my monthly choice in the mail. There is just something about the smell of a new book that still excites me to this day.
Time seems to pass so quickly and sometime it is hard to just stop what we are doing and sit and read. But it is good for your soul. Relieves stress, calming, and informative. I read every night before going to sleep. Helps me to relax and get ready for a nights sleep. Whether it be a chapter or just a few pages, I try to always read before bed.
Do you have a favorite book or author? Thought I would share a few of mine with you.
My Bible, the road map for my life. And the devotional , Jesus Calling. This was a gift from Betty atThrough My Back Door. She gifted me with this after the death of my Mother. I think of you Betty every time I pick up my little book. It stays on the end table where I sit. .
I love the books written by Richard Paul Evans. He is the author of The Christmas Box and The Letter and many, many, more great books. He also has a few children's books published. The ones above are from a series he writes one book a year. I love these and he has one more to publish in this series.
Debbie Macomber is a wonderful author. I love reading her books. She writes a beautiful story and they are a clean read and so entertaining. She has a gift of holding your attention through out the book. She has had many of her books made into movies and are usually shown on the Hallmark channel. She has a Cedar Cove Series that will air later in the summer. I just can't wait.
I also love to read books by Nicholas Sparks and Danielle Steele. Just recently I have begun to read lots of Amish Books and Stories. I haven't decided which author I like best, but haven't really read a bad book yet.
I have Kindle on my tablet and I enjoy having it with me in my purse when we are traveling or I am sitting waiting on someone or an appointment. It is so easy to just pull out and click on the book.
But I am just from the old school I guess. Sometime there is nothing better than the feel and smell of a new book. Opening the pages, open up a whole new experience, adventure, and a transformation into the life of the characters hidden between the cover of that book.
Yes, reading is a love of mine. If you read, you know what I am talking about. If you don't , then pick up a book of interest and give it a try. You will be surprised at how relaxing it can be.
See ya later this evening.
