The northern hemisphere, at least, is socked in by winter right now… So, on a cold, wintry day, when you want nothing more than to curl up with a good book on the couch … what kind of reading do you want to do?
It would have to be a really good book from my favorite genre and that is mystery/suspense. I also like a romance but has to have some mystery/suspense (example Nora Roberts). And when this scenario plays out I have my afghan and a cup of coffee or hot chocolate. My family (sadly to report are not readers) are amazed how I can totally tune them out and become part of the book. So much so that they have to call out my name a couple of times before hearing them. I think the idyllic situation stated above has to be the next best thing to heaven. Only a true reader can understand that!!
This is the 1st ever “Thursday Treasures” !!!!!!!! OK…here goes…….

Talk & Thoughts:
The past couple of days I have been in a big reading slump. I know why and it’s the fact that there is so much on my mind that I am having difficulty concentrating and being focused. My question is does this happen to you? Do you feel guilty that it puts you behind on your schedule for “requested reviews’? How do you make up that time? So today I am giving myself a dead line to do what I need to do on the computer (I will check occasionally), then it will be off to my “reading chair” and try to catch up. Happy Thursday Reading All !!!!
