I do apologize for the photos, which I took from amazon.com, but my camera wanted to be snarky this morning and not download a photo I took. Anyway, last week I went to a booksigning at the local Community College. Our local news-anchor on channel 12 in Winston-Salem has written another novel. I was surprised that a few of my friends also attended, none of us knew the others were attending! Mr. Kent gave a good talk on the basics of becoming a writer and was very interesting. I read his first book, "When the Ravens Die" several years ago, when it came out. Yesterday morning, about 4am, I finished reading his latest book "Road to Devotion". It is set in Civil War days, in our local area. I think he did a very good job, and I enjoyed his new book a lot. I have now started a book called "Death by Cashmere" by Sally Goldenbaum, of the Seaside Knitting Mysteries. It is too soon to tell if I'll like this one, but I am hoping! I have been a reader all of my life. I cannot imagine even a day without a book in my hand. I've never had the opportunity or finances to travel, so I buy books. My lovely books have taken me to all the places I can only dream about. I have learned new hobbies with my books, too. I thank God for my parents, who were readers, and that my children are both avid readers (and teachers!). I feel like I have passed something worthwhile down to them!
