Of course I remember Reading Rainbow. I'm old enough to be your mama!

I'm not where I can drop everything to do anything at this point.

But 8 years ago when my mom and sister died I read The Wise Heart, and coming up on the second anniversary of my husband's death I am rereading it when I have a quiet moment.

Tim,

Our resident book reader Roy Kelley regales us with book recommendations several times a week, and my list keeps growing thanks to him.  It serves us well on those long cross country trips.  At this point, I have a couple of books going, one by Alan Watts, and a couple fiction books.  I have several luxury news feeds and other news on line.  

Since we do not watch much TV except for sports (tennis and basketball) we read in the evening.  A

I am never, ever, without a book. For me, it's the best past time I can think of. Of course, I only have time to read at night before bed, but it's the perfect way to end a day. I would drop a lot to read a good book!

I drop and read daily.  I do not see any reason to drop what I am doing to read anything today.  There are times when I must ask another agent to drop what they are doing and read the contract their clients signed.

Absolutely!  With the possible resurgence of another Gelid War with the Russians looming on the horizon I am going to dust off the best book I have read in the last 25 years.

                                          BLIND MAN's BLUFF 

 

It is the story of the US Attack Submarine force and the incredible role it played in spying on The Evil Empire from the 1960's through the 1980's.

The short answer is NO Tim at PropertyMinder (AccelerAgent) . I very seldom read books but I read the newspaper cover to cover every morning. I read a whole lot of info on the internet and I try to remember to read some scripture every day.
