I love to read. One of my fondest memories from being a kid was my grade school membership in a book club and the anticipation I had in waiting for the next novel or two or four that would arrive each month.
My parents never put limits on our reading. We had no library nearby so the policy in my family became if you wanted a book, we would buy it in our local bookshop or send away for it. And yes, there was no Amazon back then.
Much later in life, I found that I enjoyed writing every bit as much as reading. I like the creativity of adding meaning to what was otherwise a blank page. Because of my day job, I do not always have the opportunity to pursue my joy in writing, but I have managed to weave it into my personal and professional life whenever possible.
