Congratulations Kerri, Rain, Tammie, Deidre, and Debra for winning my contest. I sent your prizes today and hope you will enjoy them. Please let me know when they arrive. Thank you to every one else who sent answers.

I hope to be able to post again during the weekend. The last two weeks have been particularly difficult with my mother in the hospital for a clot and surgery. She is still in rehab. In addition, both my daughter-in-law and my son-in-law lost their jobs. They went through the usual gamut of emotions, anger, frustration, resentment, resignation, acceptance, and counting their blessings. So many people lost their jobs recently. As long as they are safe and healthy, life is good.

It's when things are difficult that I realize how reading a book can help. Believe me, I read many books in the last two weeks. I relax and escape reality with a good story and unforgettable characters.

I laughed with Divorced, Desperate and Delicious by Christi Craig, and immersed myself in historical suspense with Beneath a Silent Moon by Traci Grant. Now I am reading Dead Girls Are Easy by Terri Garey. This book won the Rita for Best First Book.

So what did you read recently?

I'm currently reading Immortal Warrior by Lisa Hendrix (I didn't think I'd like it, but am LOVING it); Prime Time by Vicki Burkholder; and A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to Your Wedding by Cindy Green. After that, I'll be reading Unbreakable by AJ; Brits in Time antho; and Sacred Ground by Rita Karnopp.

Oh yeah...and writing my revisions, getting the house presentable for T-day, and cooking Thanksgiving dinner.

Congrats to the winners!
