Great announcement for all those Ballantyne readers Nina. I'm going to look over the list again and see if there's something I need to read too!

Lawrence "Larry" & Sheila Agranoff. Cell: 631-805-4400 hi Sheila... there were a couple of books that caught my eye, especially the one for the December meeting.

Paul S. Henderson, REALTOR®, CRS no, I'm not a member of this book club. Until we went to the zoom option last year I'd occasionally participate in my sorority alum group's book club sessions. Now I'm out of the habit even though I do read at least 3-4 books per month.

I read constantly, not just fiction, but other books as they affect our professional lives.  Kindle loves both of us...I have been reading since I was 3 years old, and I have no intention of stopping.  LOL A

Ron and Alexandra Seigel hi Alexandra... I've loved to read all of my life, as well. But I don't read on Kindle or on any device. I like the feel of a book in my hands.

There was time when we would go out of town, like Hawaii for R&R, and one of the suitcases as loaded with books...Today, as we travel loading our iPads is much easier.  A

Ron and Alexandra Seigel it is for sure, Alexandra... but I still travel annually to Russia with a bunch of books and then leave them behind.

Brian England good morning, Brian... it's one of those things that once you start, especially with some good books, it's hard to stop.

Fun - I used to belong to a book club and really enjoyed it. Lately, I haven't been allocating enough time to reading.

Debb Janes EcoBroker and Bernie Stea JD hi Debb... I read a lot, but sometimes it's in spurts. The most difficult thing for me is to make certain that I can finish a book in time for meeting month after month.
