And I wonder why I don’t have time to write

I just finished reading  A Kiss Before You Go by Danny Gregory

a kiss before you go

WoW! This was one of the best reads I’ve had in some time even though it was hard to read through the brutal honesty of his pain. And if his words didn’t nail your heart, his pictures did.While this book is about Danny’s way of surviving Patty’s death, his love and respect for Patty and Jack and their twined lives is a joy to read and very much alive;

In every picture.

In every sentence.

Really, all I can say is thank you Danny for sharing

I’ve picked up Sue Bender’s book Stretching Lessons.

stretching exercises(Book three of a three book series) So far I am enjoying it.

For two reasons: One is on page two for pity’s sake there’s a quote which went off like a gong in my head,

PRACTICE ENJOYING.

DON’T PRACTICE STRUGGLING

Funny how I keep forgetting to do the first part because I’m so busy doing the second part. This book may well give me headaches from continual nodding as I read.

The other reason I am pleased is the wide-open spaces between nice short paragraphs; sometimes even between sentences. This may sound like a daft reason but, reading as much as I do it’s a delight to find a book with space. It forces me to rest instead of gobbling up the words. Room to think.

Once I finish Stretching Lessons I will slowly gobble (can one do that?) the other two in the series.  I may continue to live on the edge and read them out of order too. . . wild child of wolves that I am!

Two whodunit writers I am enjoying right now are:

Cleo Coyle‘s Coffeehouse Mysteries and Elizabeth Lynn Casey’s South Carolina’s Sweet Briar Ladies Society Sewing Circle Mysteries

While I wait for more from: Kerry Greenwood, Janet Evanovich, M.C. Beaton, Denise Swanson and on and on and . . . . .
