Generally, I browse my library/or read heavily during the weekend which I designated for recreational reading. Occasionally I will slip off the reading wagon and do some in the middle of the night as I have fibromyalgia and insomnia is part of the syndrome. Occasionally, I will check out DVDs at public library which stimulate interests in an author or the book the DVD is based on. That is how I ended up reading some Henry James.

I am at midlife and am now looking back, reflecting on how and what people were thinking; people who affected the thinking of others for decades and centuries. Pros/Cons, etc.

I got a real kick out of reading some 19th cent Fiction due to the vocabulary and quotable phrases. I made a journal during my reading of a couple of books just to recall the quotes I found worthy of discussion and words I want to incorporate into my vocabulary gradually. This is a prodigous endeavor for I am combating fogginess due to fibro. Good brain exercises, don't ya think?

I have recently rediscovered C-SPAN and the BookTV website...check it out...good lead for non-fiction books and authors...the end.

Last but not least, love miniature poodles.
