>A Love of Reading

> I love to read. My mom read storybooks to me, I think starting before I was born, and I have always enjoyed books and reading. I don’t have time for reading as much as I’d like, actually, but I try to get in a few pages most days. I can’t usually afford to buy as many books as I’d like to read, and I don’t get to the library very often.

A couple of years ago, I hit the jackpot. We stopped at a yard sale that a local bank was having to raise money for Relay for Life. My dad, both his parents, and at least three out of four of his grandparents all died of cancer, so I am happy to support the American Cancer Society. At this sale, it was easy, because one of the ladies had brought a huge number of romance novels. I had read some of the authors before, but many of them I only knew from visiting their websites and receiving their newsletters. The books were 3/$1, the woman had complete sets of a bunch of series, and I loaded up.

I’m only about halfway through the bag, and I’m finding I don’t have any bookshelf space left. Not only that, but because I don’t have as much time for reading, I guess, I don’t re-read books the way I did when I was a kid. So, I’ve decided to give them away, starting today. Keep watching my blog for details.

About Taminar

When I grow up, I want to make movies and write books. Now in my 50s, I wonder if I'll ever really accomplish the dreams of my youth. I have made two short films, one for a college film-making class, the other for an MTV-sponsored contest. I have written short plays that have been produced, and a few short stories and reviews that have been published. I also perform and direct for community theatre. My working life has included stints in local TV news, public relations, retail management and cashier, and for a couple of years, I made the rides go at Walt Disney World. I have two cats and a husband.
