Books, books, books. So many books. So little time. I have loved to read since I learned how in the first grade. I have read mysteries, romances, biographies, autobiographies, best sellers, obscure unknown books, deep profound books, silly time-wasting books, thrillers, and supernatural books. I love books.
This section is for us to share suggestions for books to read. No deep discussions. No tests. Just a book title and a paragraph on why you think we should read it.
I will go first.
I keep a library of books in the Kindle App on my IPad. When I am looking for something to read, I go to that library and skim the titles until I find something I feel like reading. One day, about 2 years ago, I was looking through my library and came across a book titled, She Who Remembers by Linda Lay Shuler. After reading the short synopsis, I said to myself, in utter shock…………..WHAT was I thinking when I chose this book? Why would I have downloaded a book about Anasazi people circa 1200 A.D., who lived in what is today the American Southwest? Taken directly from Amazon:
“In ancient time of fear and superstition, she stood apart because of her unusual blue eyes. In a land of great stone cities and trackless wilderness, she sought her own unique path. But it was with the clan that accepted her – and in the heart of the magic man who saved her – that she found her ultimate destiny. Her name was Kwani. But legend would call her She Who Remembers.”
Being adventurous, I started the book, and was instantly drawn into a mesmerizing story. The 400 pages went so fast that I was sad when it ended. Try it. You, too, may say……….WHAT? after reading the summary, but anyone who has taken my suggestion and read the book has loved it.
