On a Serious Note

It's about time I got back to this blog. Hard to believe that since my last post I have read more than 350 books and haven't shared a single one.
In the last month my brain needed a rest and I binge read my way through a bit-of-fluff mystery series, 12 books in all. 
My brain now recovered, I felt comfortable tackling a serious topic. Recently, for various reasons, mental illness has been on my mind and the mind of many of my friends. I came across this novel which promises to take a look at mental illness and how it affects the sufferers and those around them.
I'm kindling Where We Fall by Rochelle B Weinstein. Only a bit of the way into it, and I'm finding it fascinating but can only take it in little bites.

 I am so excited!
My favorite Bible commentary is now on Kindle! Currently all the volumes for the New Testament are available.

Here is a link to the entire section:

So, what's the big deal again?

I love when Amazon has a sale! It's even better if that sale is on Kindle books. So, I keep going back everyday for the Daily Deal.

Eclectic describes me is many ways. I am a voracious reader, but I am also an eclectic reader; if it has words on it, put it in front of me and I'll read it! It's been that way as long as I can remember. I recall sitting at the breakfast table when I was about seven years old and reading the cereal box. I couldn't begin to tell you how many cereal boxes I have read in my life.

I have recently discovered a site that sends excellent, interesting articles to my Kindle about once a week. Someone else chooses for me, puts it in my lap and of course I read it! I'm becoming so well read on any number of topics.

I really recommend you check out the site. It's a super-easy 2 step process.

Still Life with Murder

I just started reading this series, and I'm addicted. Nell Sweeney is bright and resourceful. I can't wait to get my hands on the next in the series. Good thing there are 6 more, and all reasonably priced.

Wow what a garden!

I just finished Leota's Garden. Many times I'll get a book for my Kindle and then it sits in my library for awhile. Not this one. It pulled me right in. I really recommend that you get it while it's still free.

Another reason to love a Kindle

As if I actually needed more reasons to love my Kindle, I discovered that when I am sick I really appreciate it.
The last few days I've had such a terrible cough that it keeps me awake. I just wake my Kindle up and read somemore until I drift off to sleep. My Kindle does too. Cough wakes me up. I just wake my Kindle up and read somemore until I drift off to sleep. My Kindle does too. Cough wakes me up. Repeat as needed.
I've caught up on reading some of the extensive library of free books I have and will provide a couple of recommendations in the next post.
For now though, I'm going to suggest a volume of short stories.
