As a kid, my parents were always trying to get me to “put down that book and go play outside!” But they only had themselves to blame. Even before I could read, Mum’s treat for me during the weekly grocery shop would often be a Little Golden Book.
Books are such a joy. They’re adventure, escape and reassurance. They let us share others’ emotions. Studies prove that reading encourages empathy. Maybe all politicians should be made to read a children’s book before they take office!
I’m in a bit of a nostalgic mood. So apart from asking you about who or what sparked your reading habit, I thought I’d ask about food.
Do you have any foods that you eat because they’re part of good memories? Comfort foods, I guess. When I think about it, most of mine are sweet! Hot chocolate, apple crumble (homemade, of course!) and pancakes. And ice cream cake … I love ice cream cake!
I saw this on my wanderings through Facebook. The authors involved are organising some pre-release promotion.
Werewolves, dragons, vampires, faes, witches, demons… Do YOU have a favourite or do you love them all?

Amanda M Lee is a prolific writer. She has a slightly snarky tone in her upbeat mysteries. I enjoy them and definitely enjoyed Off the Record, a recent release. However, I recommend starting at the beginning with this series. The characters grow on you 🙂
And speaking of new additions to enjoyable series, Lindsay Buroker released Cyborg Legacy. Again, it won’t make as much sense if you start the series here, but for fans of her Fallen Empire series, Cyborg Legacy is fun.
