Have been reading up a storm  lately.  Habitually head to bed at 11:00 pm and read until 3:00-4:00am crawling out at 11:00am. Guess it comes from years of being a night nurse! Definitely not a morning person!!Here are the three books I'm returning…Continue

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.

All is well here. Haven't read anything really good since the new Louise Penny book. Happy Holidays.

I B OK !  Just busy and not finding enough time to come here to Bookoholics.  I think the last time I signed in, there was nothing new, and I thought we had gone the way of the horse and buggy!  Hope Thanksgiving was good to you all.

Rapa, I'm editing  one called The Master's Touch right now that I hope to release by summer. I will be sure to let y'all know just when.

Yes, Merry Christmas to all.  We may find books to take us to different times and places, to expand our opinions and make the magic real
