I love to read! The first time I picked out my own book was when I was 4 years old. Because I was good my mother took me to the Toy Store to pick out any toy I wanted. For me, it was like Disneyland! There were big toys, small ones, shiny toys, and dolls for boys and girls. I found doll houses, stuffed animals, games, planes, trains, and things to make chains around my neck in sparkly jewels. But what I decided on was a book. It was a Hans Christian Andersen Fairy Tale Book. I remember my mother saying, "Are you sure that's what you want?" I just had to have it and I said, "Yes!"
For me, good reading is a necessity! I like stories that keep me interested. When it comes to reading, I have a thirst for knowledge! The story doesn't necessarily have to have a happy ending, as long as there is closure and it keeps me interested. I never leave home without a book. You just never know when you have idle time and I prefer to read an actual book over a Kindle or something online. It's against my principle to be bored. I always felt, boredom was pointless! A good mystery book or adventure story leaves me hanging! I can't put the book down! Autobiographies are very intriguing! Stories that inspire me are what I crave most. When I want to learn something new, I just have to find the perfect book.
When it comes to Real Estate, I continuously read books on the topic to keep current. My hobby is reading and photography. The last three books I bought and read are illustrated below. The reason why I chose Three Days In January is because I accidentally stumbled upon the house where President Eisenhower was born in Dennison, Texas. Because nobody ever talks about him, I wanted to learn more. Growing Up Digital was recommended to be by the Inn Keeper at Fairview Inn in Austin. It was a fascinating book and has caused me to read additional books! I chose Anita Diamant's Day After Night because it is the same author who wrote The Red Tent. My daughter recommended Red Tent to me years ago and I was eager to read more by the same author.
Everyday I read, I feel lucky! Words consume me with passion, understanding, knowledge, wisdom, and entertainment. Happy reading one and all!
