When I am home, I am more likely to be on my sewing machine, rather than in my library. With lots of free time on my cruise, I thought I should get a head start on reading the book for my book club. It is called Someone Knows My Name by Lawrence Hill.
But before I could wade into something as heavy as a book club book, I started out with some trash. I recently discovered that the IPhone has a Kindle application available for free. How cool is that! I can now read any of the books available for Amazon’s Kindle on my IPhone without buying the Kindle. So to figure out how it worked, I downloaded and read a romance novel called Price of Passion because it was free.
Then I moved on to John Grisham’s latest legal thriller The Associate. Having gotten myself in a reading groove, I circled back around to Someone Knows My Name. This book is about the life of a remarkable woman who began her life as a free woman in Africa, was sold into slavery, and her journey to freedom. There is a lot to think about and ponder after reading this book, but my overwhelming reaction to the book was that I am not going to complain about a single thing in my life ever again.
Life is Good! Be Thankful!
