Stop Dragon Your Feet!

Stop “Dragon” your feet and read a book. This is just one of the ways to beat the “I am so sad at home” blues.

Adventure: Clive Cussler is very hard to beat. He has written sooo many books and most of them are in series so if you don’t like one genre there are at least five others. Favorite? The Oregon Files series

Just for fun: I have read them all from book one to the next to last. I have ordered the final and it has not come yet. Yes, of course I mean the Stephanie Plum series starting with One For the Money and going on to I believe it is book 24 or 25. All of them are a hoot and you will actually laugh out loud prticularly at Lula and Connie!

Westerns: Western books come and go but I have a friend who is a real fan of the genre and he swears that there is still nothing better than Zane Grey and Louie L’Amour. Oldies but goodies my friend says.

Gentle Fiction: Has to be the Mitford series. Any of the Amish books are good too. (Kingsford)

Read to the kids: Boy, I really love The Magic Tree House series. Mary Pope Osborne is excellent and her husband also writes companion books that tell true historical facts surrounding each of her fiction stories. These are “read aloud” stories in my opinion. Stuff happens that is fun to talk about with your child. (Magic School Bus not so much. Too much detail for the average child.)

Cook Books: Yes. some people (Me!) actually read cookbooks for fun and try new recipes on their long suffering significant others over and over again. Best source for cookbooks that are really interesting? Thrift shops, of course!!

So, quit “dragon” your feet and READ!
