I thought I would start a discussion on books. My husband and I are both avid readers and often look for great books to read. Right now he is reading the latest John Grisham book, and I just finished reading " My extraordinary ordinary life" by Sissy Spaceck which was a wonderful nostalgic book and a real page turner with lots of humor and it was really well written by this talented actress. I always take my kindle camping with me so I can access several books or even buy a new one while I am camping.

Starting "My Life in Pictures" by Temple Grandin. For those of you that don't know who Temple is, she holds a PhD in animal science/biology and remarkably she has Asperber's syndrome, one of the disorders in the Autism spectrum.

Neither my wife or me read books. My 10 year old loves to read. No idea where she got that from.
I have 1 book on my phones Kindle app. And of course, it is about camping and rving tips and stuff.

Finished Temple Grandin's book. It was not a difficult read but it is complex to try and understand the mind of an autistic. Fascinating information but probably wouldnt interest the average person. If you have a child or know a child or an adult with Asperger's syndrome (high functioning autism) , it is an insightful read and I would highly recommend it. These children are often misunderstood and have tremendous social difficulties.

On to the next book....

I used to read all the time. Now I have such a hard time finding time.

Some of my favorites:

Girl with a Pearl Earring

the Beverly Lewis Amish books

the Women of Genesis series by Orson Scott Card

Nora Roberts

I see alot of Nora Roberts books that I think about reading, but never have. I like biographies and things that interest me medically like phsychology, reference type books, and inspirational books. My daughter and husband both like John Grisham, spy type mystery thriller kind of books.

Starting a new book about Secretariat...while I was never a thoroughbred fan, I am a huge fan of this horse for his remarkable abilities. This is a great read for any age. Kids would love it too. It's about Secretariat's groom and the great personal bond he had with this horse.
