Lately I have been reading books - a lot of them. I think it has become some sort of escape for me. I love to read books, but I have never hungered for books before - in my entire life - like I currently am. I have to have a book with me wherever I go. I sneak in reading every extra minute. I try to figure out how to read while I cook dinner and do the dishes. Last week I had to keep myself in check so that I would not feel resentful towards any member of my family when they wouldn't let me just sit and read my book, (a continual problem - with four children needing me constantly).
So, I need recommendations for books. I've read all of the books now that I've been wanting to read for years. Where do you go to find good books? Have you read any lately that you have loved. My only requirement is that the story is not scary - books influence me greatly and I cannot handle scary - or evil stuff, well or dirty stuff either. (For example, I couldn't sleep for days after I read the first book in the Hunger Games series.)
I remember my mom telling me about a friend of hers that survived residency with her husband by reading huge novels. I didn't get it at the time, but now, I think, I totally do. It is an immediate and lovely way to escape.
