I enjoy books as misers enjoy treasures, because I know I can enjoy them whenever I please.

My first public library was in a beautiful 1902 Carnegie building. The children’s department had a room with cushions so I could curl up and read in comfort. The upstairs adult area had a gorgeous rotunda where the reference desk stood. The aisles radiated from the center like spokes on a wheel and I got lost there several times! Growing up as one of several children, reading was a pleasure that drowned out the background noise and transported me to other places, other lives. I am always searching for nonfiction books that portray people living abroad. A Year In Provence by Peter Mayle is a classic of the genre. For light reading, I often choose medieval mysteries. Peter Tremayne’s Sister Fidelma and Sharan Newman’s Catherine Levendeur mysteries are my favorites. I read in many areas, including historical fiction, literary fiction, humor, art, chick lit (Bridget Jones’s Diary), motherhood, politics, graphic novels, historical romance, biography, poetry, mythology, and more.
