I Wonder What Wilbur And Fern Have Been Up Too?

As a child I had my nose in a book constantly (I can't count the times I read "Charlotte's Web" and the "Little House" series)...

even as a teenager, I read quite alot, although most of what I read then was stuff that would embarrass me if I read it today...

but something happened to me as I became an adult, I just stopped reading.

I really wanted to read, I just didn't. I wasn't willing to give up some things in order to read. To make that time for reading. I allowed other things to steal my time. When our church started a book club a couple of years ago, I was thrilled because I thought it would give me some accountablity by joining...but it didn't happen...I allowed other things to continue to distract me and it took me nearly a year to finish our second selection...

My name is Deb and I'm a book club dropout.

But my sister/friend Sue has inspired me to start reading again. A few months ago Sue began reviewing books for a Christian publishing company and just hearing how excited she was about the opportunity to read got me excited too. So I started reading again on our spring break vacation. I made it through "Pilgrim's Progress" and now have a few more titles under my belt. (I never read "The Chronicles of Narnia" as a child, so that's what I'm reading now)

It's been really nice to discover an old friend, and I didn't have to go on Facebook to find them!

Deb, this is awesome! I never read the Chronicles of Narnia either and keep saying that I'm going to! Hope your day is going super my friend! Hey, Angel Rhoden just started a blog, check it out on mine (Blessings by the google), she is so excited, just like we were when we first started blogging. Maybe we could start a woman's blogging group at church, hmmmmm?

You are a hilarious book club drop out! I've been looking in to the book review thing myself just haven't gotten the kinks worked out yet! A woman's blogging group sounds great like Sue mentioned, don't know what that is exactly but it sounds great! Love your writing!
