Musing Mondays (10/10)

THIS WEEK’S RANDOM QUESTION: Can you recall a time when you weren’t an avid reader?

There was a time when I was in my twenties that I suddenly stopped reading books for a few years. I still read newspapers and magazines, but I wasn’t reading novels. I can’t really say why either. What brought me back was the Oprah book club. I saw on her show that she was starting it up, and the first book sounded appealing, so I went and bought it, read it, loved it, and my love for reading was reignited.

What about you?

    Unfortunately, I can recall that time. It was during my son’s short life and after his passing when I was struggling to come to grips with it. Years later, a friend of mine (herself an avid reader) pointed out to me that this could have been a sign of depression. Eyes opened! I guess you really can’t see the forest for the trees. Thankfully, my reading mojo is back with a vengeance and I am happily immersed in many author’s book worlds.

    When my children were toddlers, I didn’t have the chance to pee in private, so reading a book that didn’t have big colorful pictures, just wasn’t an option. When my children got old enough to take weekly trips to the library, I was able to quench my thirst for reading, even though my time was still minimal. Years later, my husband gave me a “Nook” for my birthday, and a whole new world opened up. WOW! Now, I have an IPAD with the nook and kindle apps on it. I don’t know how I ever survived with out it.
