Reading for me
When my sons, now 32 and 30, were young and one would say “I’m bored”, I always replied you can never say you are bored as long as you have a book to read. I was reminded of that in these Covid months when in a first for me I found some pleasure in listening to a book as I went for walks. And then because I still love the feel of a book in my hands, I would come back home and settle in with another book that I was actually reading.
Last week I spent 6 days at the hospital as my husband underwent and then recovered from open heart surgery. I can’t say that I was ever really able to concentrate enough to read during those days, but I did have a book in my lap the whole time.
