I wanted to post something nice today and atone for my bad language yesterday.
Like so many people on WP I love to read. I don’t have a special kind of book I read, but I read mostly fiction.
When I was working, I did not find much time to read. After retiring reading was my first thought. I don’t own many books but make good use of the public library. Often I would just browse the shelves and grab a book because the spine looked interesting or the title looked interesting. And often I took a book because it was right at eye level and easy to reach. The check out period was for three weeks so I would get at least 15 books. I would lay them all out on the guest bed and then decide which one to start. I would usually have a book for outside on the patio, another in the living room and a third for the bedroom.
My days of at least eight hours of reading are no more since I have the computer. Plus my eyes tire more easily. But I still love the thought of reading.
When I saw this picture, I was reminded of the preparations I used to do to get ready to read. I would make sure all household duties were finished. Then get a snack or two and snuggle in a comfy chair. I did not want to be disturbed. I picked up the book, took a look and began to read.
