What I’m Reading


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

BOOKS 2021

In 2021, I read and reviewed 14 books. See what I thought about this mix of memoir, suspense, poetry, essay, self-improvement, contemporary fiction, and military romance.

BOOKS 2022

In 2022, I’m already on my 3rd book. I’m excited what my year of reading will bring. Take a look to see if you’d like to read a book I’m reading, too. Then, check back every now then for updates.


In addition to what I have read so far, I have a stack of books I plan to read soon. If you have read any, please let me know your thoughts as it will help me move the book up or down my list.



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. 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!
