Hmmmmm...I have loved books since elementary school. My best memories are walking home from school after "library day" while reading! Books have been my salvation and anchor through an abusive childhood and, at times, trauma filled adulthood. They are
my escape, my solace, and my friends. Attempting to describe this to non-readers is difficult.
I am an RN, currently working in an ER and drug treatment facility. I have 3 grown children who are blessing me with grandchildren! (I'm totally unsure how I've become old enough for this to occur!). They all read too, which warms my heart. In fact, my oldest daughter found this site and told me to check it out....I'm so glad she did.
It is so nice to know readers are still out there, we seem so few sometimes in this age of technology and instant gratification.
Anyway, it's nice to be here among "friends".
