Today I was going to post my review of The House on Foster Hill by Jaime Jo Wright but it doesn’t look like it’s going to happen. I’m hoping tomorrow to post my review and finish up a couple of review drafts. I’ve been trying to catch up on my backlog of reviews and let me tell you it is a LOT of work! When will I be caught up? To tell you the truth, I’m not sure. The industry needs more book bloggers and readers!
There are so many wonderful things about why a person should read every day. On March 31 I wrote on Facebook, “I love stories and the growth of one’s self that comes from the craft. Words are beautiful. Words are harsh. Words are emotional and often times they feel unforgiving and undeserving. Words together tell us about many things. What we come away with those words matter greatly. Remember, each reader experiences something different and sometimes the same.” This is just glimpse at what the written words means to readers and writers. I’ve thought about expanding the quote and perhaps write an essay on the topic. What do you think? The quote certainly gives a good outline to start with. Okay, I’m rambling. I blame the lack of coffee this morning. Ha!
I want to encourage you to carve out time in your day to pick up a book and read a few lines, pages and if you can, a couple of chapters. Then take the time to reflect on what you read and maybe jot your thoughts down on paper. This is a great exercise and will add meaning to your life. *Smiles*
Have a beautiful day and don’t forget to read from a book today and every day!
