Some Random Thoughts

You may have noticed that my posts have been intermittent. First when I don’t have a subject I do not write. Also, I have been doing quite a bit of reading. The list of books I have read mostly deal with one subject matter, the man in the White House. I have gone back to hard cover rather than E-Books. There is something about actually feeling the pages when you turn them.

It has also been difficult for me to write at times because of pain generating from my hip. I can only sit at the lap top for a limited time. My medications at supper time usually means that I do not post much after about six at night.

I went to receive a flu shot. The pharmacist said they are expecting a high turn out for it. She also mentioned that this winter presents a troublesome worry, will people be able to distinguish between the flu and Covid-19. This could overwhelm the ERs in some cities.

Some provinces are returning to shut downs because of the numbers are on the rise with positive infections. I believed that lifting some restrictions was premature. I understand that people want to get back to their lives the way it was before the pandemic. Here in Saskatchewan there are reports of Covid-19 appearing in the school system. This leaves me with great concern about my grandchildren, but, in all children in general.

So dear reader these are just some random thoughts about what has been occupying my mind lately.

    There’s something very satisfying about paper books.

    It’s a shame about the COVID situation, and I wish people had been more careful. If people had actually followed the limitations that came with reopening, I think we’d be in a much better place now.

    I have tried the ebooks as well and I’m not a fan. Like you, I would rather feel the pages of the book I’m reading and I also quite enjoy the smell of a book 🙂

      I started back in the spring buying and reading books. For me it is soothing, takes my mind off of my ills. Also, it gives me insight to what others are thinking. I love looking at the differences in their writing styles. Some seem to flow effortlessly than other.

        This is true. Some people have a way of putting their words together that can draw you in immediately, others can take a little while.

        What’s your favorite genre to read so far?

        I like biographies, mystery. My one favorite authors are James Patterson and Sidney Sheldon.

        I’ve read many James Patterson novels. They are among the most memorable and favorite of all the books I’ve ever read. I’ll have to check out Sidney Sheldon! I have a weak spot for crime fiction 😀

        You will find with Sidney Sheldon he uses the same characters throughout most of his novels.

        I like that. I am one of those readers that form a “relationship” with the characters and I crave to always know more about them. His books look very good and I am currently picking some to order through our library!
