I love to read! So this quote really speaks to me.

I am someone who may read 6 books in a row and then not read for a bit but it doesn’t mean I don’t like to read. It’s just how I read.

Books give you an insight to people, places and things. They enrich your life. They give you something to think about and look forward to.

What book are you reading? I am just starting The Nest.




Many of us cannot afford some of the art that we love (like Dale Chihuly glass.) Everyone who comes to visit us in the PNW is told they need to go to the Tacoma Glass Museum and the Seattle Chihuly Garden and Glass Museum at the Seattle Center to see Dale’s work.

I also love to know what music people are listening to because I love hearing all kinds of music. And don’t get me started on books…. If you aren’t reading, you are so missing out on a rich world.

Take time to share the music, art and books that you love with friends. Art and artists are a VERY important part of our lives.

The Power of Books!

The Power of Books

I never understand when people tell me they don’t read books…. I can’t imaging not reading!

Books can entertain, teach, blow you away, and educate to name a few of things reading can do for you. I happen to like all kinds of books… from young adult stories, fiction, non-fiction, psychology, to New Age. They all have something different to offer.

What is your favorite book?




To me there is nothing more wonderful than sitting down with a good book.

A book can take you away to places you have only imagined or a book can inspire you to learn new things. The possibilities are endless!

To me, books are like friends, there are good ones, ones we enjoy, ones we don’t want to continue with, and ones we learn from. The list could go on forever.

What are your thoughts about books?



I love books! They are like old friends or comfortable shoes. Always there for you when you need them and you never need to say anything when you are together.

In the past few years I have moved from ‘physical’ to ‘electronic’ books. I wasn’t sure how I was going to like that since I have always loved the touch and feel of a book. Much to my surprise, I like reading on my iPhone or iPad because I always have a book with me where ever I go and since I tend to read several books at a time, this really works for me.

I still go to the bookstore and look at books that I might want to read because I love the feeling of finding that ‘surprise’ read and seeing old and new friends on the shelves!
