Hi, Liz: I'm like you, I'm afraid. If I get into a book and really like it -- I can walk around all day with my nose stuck in it! I've been known to bake bread and read, make chili and read, make pasta and read, and even take a bath and read! LOL Those books sound absolutely fascinating. I'm going to print your e-mail out and go check them out. I used to read a lot of anthropology, and really got into it. Unfortunately, I can't remember the author's name -- Desmond Something. He wrote "The Naked Ape," among others, and I read them all. It was so long ago. Being in the legal field, I naturally enjoy courtroom novels. However, it's nothing like that here! LOL Witness my paralegal probate manual (zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz). It will NEVER make the best seller list. I think we sold 12. I, too, have hundreds of books -- books on cooking, antiques, decorating. I use one cookbook! LOL Happy New Year -- Kathy

Like you, I love to read, but during the school term I have so many
student papers to read, there is little time for recreational reading.
Unlike you, when I have the time to do it I do read all day and into
the night if the book is good.
I enjoy the prehistories. (Clan of the Cave Bear, etc.) and I have been
reading the series of books by Kathleen O'Neal Gear and W. Michael Gear
that tell stories based on the archaelogical information found about
the various American Indian Tribes. Right now I am reading "People of
the Mist" which takes place in the Chesapeake Bay region. I have read
every book in the series. The first one was "People of the Wolf".
Other than that I have hundreds of books on many topics. For example, I
have many garden books, many sewing books, many cookbooks, etc. I love
With everything that is going on in your life, the store and all, how
are you dealing with the stress. I know this has been a difficult
season for you. I hope you have come to a clear decision about what you
need to do. It is so very difficult to live in limbo.
Be good to yourself. I was pleased to see that your contact with family
over the holidays went well.
<excerpt>Thanks gal.. I will definitely pass it on to Ken.. I have to
go change his bandage here in a few! oh....
I know that you deserve this time off and I am so glad that you are
making the most of it and enjoying it to the fullest for you... What
are you reading?? I received a gift certificate for Borders and Books
and was already there tonight for a couple of hours and came out with
some new selections... If I don't have a couple of books going, then I
am worried about me.. I truly love to read and learn.. Don't get me
wrong.. I am not a person that sits and reads all day.. Just about an
hour each night..
I got a bread machine and bought a book so that I can start baking up
bread... I got a couple of books that will be good for my spirit and a
couple to learn a new hobby.. I didn't buy my vege magazine tonight,
because that gives me a good reason to go back and look some more.. I
truly feel much better if I am there atleast everyother week!! I could
be there everyday, which is why everyone teases me that if I don't open
the store.. I should work there part time... I just might.. it would
make me happy and give me some time away..
The store decision is close to having to be made.. The building has
been power-washed and is being painted.. I have paid the overhead for
16 months with no income from it and pretty well busted my little
business account! So I will put things together on paper this week and
give them to the women I have discussed the co-op with and if it is
meant to be, then it will open and if not, that is okay as I know that
something else will present itself...
Well my dear... enjoy the rest of this well deserved break and know
that you are in our prayers and hearts.. God Bless you and much love,
