Welcome to my blog. I’m Brenda and my love of reading developed because I wanted to be with my mama. She lay in bed reading every night until she fell asleep. One night I wanted to read with her, but I didn’t have any books. She let me read one of her “adult” books. It was The Raggedy Man. When I picked it out, I was thinking of Raggedy Ann and Andy! If you haven’t read the book, you may remember the movie with Sissy Spacek. I don’t think it was really age appropriate since I was only about 8 years old. I don’t think I really comprehended the whole novel. There was sex, mystery and murder. I was totally hooked!
After finishing that book, Mama took me to the local library. I was amazed by the selection. Reading has been my favorite pastime ever since that day. Every once in awhile we went to the next town where the mall was located. There were book stores there. I loved the book store! Well, the invention of e-readers has changed everything. I resisted buying one until November 2011 because I was afraid that an e-book could not match the joy found in a print book. I quickly learned that my Kindle could put even more knowledge at my fingertips. Plus, everyday books and articles are offered for free!
Now, I have to admit; some of these electronic offerings leave something to be desired. Most of the time, the authors fail to edit and proofread their work thoroughly. They have to know there is a problem. My reviews on this blog will help spread the word to those who need help and promote those who are outstanding.
