Why do you want to join this group?

I would like to participate in a shared reading experience, with the intellectual stimulation of delving into the plot, characters, etc. My life has been greatly enriched by good literature, and I look look forward to continuing to discover new favorite books.

What is your favorite book?

Rebecca, East of Eden, many of Jane Austen books, Jane Eyre, The Hobbit, too many to list. I enjoy both classical literature, along with science fiction, fantasy, biographies. I particularly enjoy reading of strong women throughout the world. When I chose a book to read I look for strong characters, set in a variety of locations and time periods around the world. A biography of Helen Keller that I read as a child 10 years of age, led me to my career as a speech-language pathologist. I look forward to new diverse experiences of reading in the next few years.

What are you currently reading?

I just completed a heartwarming book called The Lottery. I keep several books on my IPad. I have started Catherine the Great, and Bel Canto.

Introduction

I am a retired educator who lives with my husband Dick, and two cats. I enjoy reading a variety of books from different genres, and look forward to lively discussions each month. Church, quilting, and sewing are other favorite hobbies of mine.
