The Gift of Reading.

It is for adults, too.

I have a friend who gives her children a new book every day from December 1 until Christmas Day. Another family I know adds books to the gifts it gives the children for each day of Hanukkah.  Both families use it as a way to celebrate books, but also enhance the ritual of nighttime reading.   Snuggling together with children to explore a different time and place with a real book makes getting ready for sleep a loving experience.

Why not give the gift of reading to the adults in your life?

Choose a book to share. Buy a copy for you and one for them. Read during the holidays and talk with your friend about the story, the characters, and how it might relate to you. This could be a sort of secret book club.

I’ve got one you might like. I just published my first novel, The Nash Sisters. It is historical fiction about women who struggle yet thrive through the 1920s, 1930s, and 1940s. Their love and conversations hold them together as life brings death of loved ones, mental illness, prejudice, and poverty. When they move away from each other their conversations continue in Round Robin Letters so they stay in touch at a time when there were no phones or email.

Here is what people are saying about The Nash Sisters A Story of Family Sticking Together When It Counts

“I so enjoyed this heartwarming book!  I could not put it down! You are an extraordinary writer and you must continue writing stories about these sisters!”

“If you appreciate the dynamics of sibling relationships and tales of strong women who struggle and endure, you will enjoy The Nash Sisters!”

“The Nash Sisters is such an extraordinary and heartwarming book! I could not put it down. Looking forward to more stories about these sisters!”

Writing non-fiction about leader development, mentoring, training, and coaching managers has spanned most of my career. Leadership in the early childhood education field is where I practiced my skills for more than 25 years. In retirement, my fingers on the keyboard began to write fiction. The stories that come from my head and heart to the keyboard are historical fiction about family, friends, and the resilience of people. Check out The Nash Sisters Novels available on Amazon.
