What I’m Reading


When I was a child, my mother read to me. Now, as an adult, I read for myself.

In 2022, I read and reviewed 37 books, more than I had expected to. Click on the button to see if you’d like to read any of these amazing books. Like 2021, there’s a lot to choose from but even more so.

BOOKS 2023

As of April 2023, I’m on my tenth book. Reviews for eight and nine will be posted mid- to end of month. I hope you stop by and support fellow authors as myself. If you love to read, you’ll enjoy any of these.



You would not believe the reading lists and piles of books that I have. Okay, maybe you will, if you’re as much of a book lover as I am. And I’m always falling in love with a book!

Over the years, I’ve parted with many books, many of which I wouldn’t even remember if someone told me it once belonged to me. How do I know? Because I had a friend, once, who returned not just one but several books to me which she had borrowed from me. Why did I not miss them? Because I had so many more books on my shelves. That’s why.

Also, over the years, I have let go of books which I later wish I hadn’t. All I could do was replace the book. Only once, though, was it a challenge. More on that later.

In the meantime, I’ll be updating my lists, and photos of my book piles, as we move from dilapidated house to little guest cottage or “little casita” to, eventually, main home. I’m hoping that I’ll be able to set up my bookshelves and unpack my books in the “little casita.” Fingers crossed!
