Read, Dear!

Yesterday morning, I reviewed my personal finances and decided to bite the bullet - vowing to suffer any negative criticisms from my parents (and I knew they would be voiced, and they were) about what I was about to do. I did it. I bought a Kindle Fire from Amazon.com.

I wrote my current book, "Prince Bashful - a strip-club disc jockey's story" in a little under three months. I had always paid rapt attention in any and all English classes years ago. But I am almost embarrassed to admit that I have only read about 3 books cover to cover since Jr. High School.

Vicariously, through seeing how eagerly several friends & family members acquired their own copies of Prince Bashful, and after seeing how voraciously they devoured the text - one friend even reading the entire book in a single afternoon - something inside me clicked. I had abandoned an integral element of life before I'd even entered high school. I had stopped reading. I, too, had been a voracious reader. I always blamed my becoming disinterested in reading on J.R.R. Tolkein's Lord of The Rings trilogy being difficult to visualize.

For whatever reasons that had caused me to stop, I realized 2 mornings ago that since I have been missing-out on this part of life for over half of my life, it is time to reacquaint myself with reading.

My Kindle Fire is on its way, and here is my profile on Shelfari, which is a sub-site of Amazon.com.

Thanks to Amazon.com, Myra, Kevin, Wanda, David, BJ, HR, Fonda, Dezron and special thanks to Jay F. And anyone else who inspired me to make this quantum leap back into reading. Wish me luck.

...thanks for reading...
