About me

Yahoo! Retirement means reading any dang thing I please! Retired four years ago from teaching family studies and psych. Also had a psychotherapy practice, which was a nice balance. I loved both and love retirement also. It's been interesting seeing my reading habits change. While teaching and having to constantly read professional texts and journals as well as student papers, I only wanted entertainment when I had time for pleasure reading. I did love reading student papers but also enjoy a good thriller. Now I also have time for more serious reading on any subject I choose, and I am choosing a big variety: travel lit, memoirs, bios, nature, recently discovered graphic novels, cultural info, political, history, et cetera, et cetera, et cetera! Read Tolstoy (Anna Karenina) for the first time and could not believe how good it was - I know - I know - but I was still burned from high school ; I certainly intend to read more! I added up my books and reading speed and realize, like many of us on LT, that I simply can't live that long! I'm having fun reading tho!
