Road Trip Reads

A number of good things came about on my trip to the mountains this past weekend. One of those was being getting back into another book. Last month while on vacation with my family, I lost myself in the pages of a book called “Hill Country,” written by Janice Woods Windle. I found myself more interested than usual in a book of this type. I wasn’t sure if it was actual interest or due to reading at such a high elevation. Nonetheless, this historical fiction novel lured me in and…

There are some books you’ll buy/rent/borrow in your lifetime, that you just never want to finish. For me I want to know how it ends but I know I will feel so sorry to have the story be over with. These sorts of books I will never get rid of. It’s selfish, really. But I guess I am just nerdy that way. There are literally a handful of books that I have learned a lot from and enjoyed so very much I don’t want to ever part with them. The…
