Read a book!
A year ago, many of us went into isolation. With a pandemic looming on the horizon, we didn’t mind a few weeks of lockdown if it kept us safe. Well, it’s been a year and we’re still here. What better way to spend the time than reading a good book?
Everyone has a different opinion of what makes up that proverbial “good book.” Maybe it’s non-fiction, something that teaches something. Or history, a way to learn from our past. Maybe you like biographies that give a peek into the lives of the rich and famous. Or maybe, just maybe, you’d rather take a break from realism and enjoy a fiction read.
This has been the toughest year on record. Besides a pandemic that’s shaped our lives in ways we could never have predicted, we’ve had civil unrest, opposing politics, violence in our streets, and insurrection in the very heart of our country. We’ve had droughts and fires, tornadoes, and now the country, all the way south to Texas and west to Oregon, is experiencing an unprecedented freeze. In my opinion, it’s time to cuddle around the fire with a cat or two and read something fun.
May I offer, for your consideration, my cozy cat mystery series!
