It's my own personal resolution...I'm trying to read more often. I was a journalism major, you'd think it would come easy. But I'm given to writing, and not so much reading. Both my sisters are great readers. I think I missed the gene.
BUT, I'm pleased to say that I grabbed "Redeeming Love" by Francine Rivers from the library just before my children slipped into a dirty look-inducing meltdown, and I finished it today. I chose this book because I was in the "R's" in the library, and it is on so many of my friends' favorites lists. An easy read, fictional -- but based on the Bible (the story of Hosea).
I must say it was consuming, refreshing, and addicting. A good first try. Next, please!
