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.
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.
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.
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.
