New Books!

New books, well, new to me!  I am reading between one and that crazy or what!  I have done that SO many times in my life...I am a quick reader, ok, sometimes, I 'slow myself down to absorb', by picking up another book. I am sure that sounds weird to some people, but I HATE finishing most books I read, so it is a way to prolong the joy of that particular 'read'.

Wondering what you are reading, hoping you will share.  I am ready to put another book on the 'kindle shelf' and begin voraciously reading what you think is a good read!  I really do value your opinions.

Until then?

Happy Reading.....

This site is one of the most wonderful sites, if you are a voracious reader like myself!  One of my Facebook friends, told me about it, and of course?  I shared the news!  

This site can be used through various 'book' types.....such as Nook.  I am a Kindle fan (it sleeps with me everynight), and the books, are free through the 'whispernet' through  I have found up to 5 free books a day, now, not every one appeals to me, but to have the opportunity to 'grab and read'?  Heaven....

So, if you have a chance?  AND why wouldn't you if you love reading here is the link to get you started   All you need to do is figure out which 'book' you are using and it as simple as pouring that afternoon cup of tea to enjoy your book with.  

Happy Reading!!

A Simple Thing

How far would you go to protect your children? Would you do it at the expense of your marriage? How far would you go to protect yourself?
For Susannah Delaney, the answers lie thousands of miles away, off the northwest corner of Washington state. When Susannah discovers her young son is being bullied and her adolescent daughter is spinning out of control, she moves them to remote Sounder Island in the San Juans to live off the grid for a year. Susannah hopes to save her children from the risks they’ve encountered at home, and to come to terms with her own haunted past. But the move threatens her marriage to the man she’s loved since childhood, and her very sense of self.
For Betty Pavalak, who first moved to Sounder to save her own troubled marriage, the island has been a haven for more than fifty years. But Betty also knows the guilt of living with choices she made long ago and actions that cannot be undone.The unlikely friendship between Susannah and Betty ignites a journey of self-discovery for both women that brings them both home to what they love most. A SIMPLE THING moves beyond friendship, children, and marriages to look deeply into what it means to love and forgive—yourself.
MY REVIEW:  This was a 5 star book.  The characters drew me in, and taught me a great deal in the process.  The book is beautifully written and deals with loss, guilt, forgiveness while raising children and trying to hold on to a marriage.  When I came to the end, I was left wanting more.  Really, wanting more!  
Happy Reading!
P.S.  Thanks K. McCleary for writing a wonderful book!
