Grammie Sue, I get 1 e-mail daily from BookBub offering free or inexpensive books.  Occasionally I get another e-mail from them asking if I've read certain books but I am definitely not inundated with mail from them.

Is anyone a part of BookBub? Can you tell me is it good, do they have a lot of ads or send out a lot of email?  Generally what has been your experience with them?

Mandy, I am so very late to this conversation, haven't been here in quite some time.  Just want you to know that you have my deepest condolences!

Adding my condolences, Mandy.  Many of us have been in your shoes and know how difficult it is on so many levels.  I second Lip Service's request: Please take good care of yourself.  Take time to heal; Rapa is right that reading does help. Some heartfelt advice form your Bookoholics family.

Sorry Mandy for your loss

Being a care giver is a strenuous endeavor, it take a huge toll on a person's physical and mental constitution. Please take good care of yourself

My condolences, Mandy. I can relate to your loss and the years of care giving.You are wise to stay at Otterbein. I wish we had a place like that here. My son has been tranferred to Dallas and will be moving here next week. Will be nice to have some family fairly close.
Keep on reading! It helps!!!

I got an E-Mail from Rapa asking for an up date on my personal situation.  Unfortunately, the news is not good.  My wife of 48 years passed on June 11th of congestive heart failure.  It is the culmination of 2 years of decreasing health from a number of ailments.  I have been her constant care giver during this time. As for the moment I have decided to remain in the lovely retirement community of Otterbein in Lebanon, Ohio. My love of reading has not diminished, although I took about 20 days to finish a Taylor Caldwell classic, "Captains and Kings," in the past month. Made into a TV series years ago, the story is about an Irish immigrant who founded an empire of both legitimate and illegitimate business dealings and aspired for his son to be President of the United States.

Mandy Muffin has let us know that he and his wife are settling into their final retirement home in Ohio. It does have several levels of care in case of need. There's also a golf course! Mandy said he will be back with us as soon as they get settled. Our thoughts will be with them.
