I promised book reviews when I started this blog and since starting it I haven’t read a single book. So unlike me. Why? Well, I was three quarters the way through reading ‘One Day at a Time’ by Danielle Steel on the day my Mama died. Its been hard for me to pick it back up and finish. AND my personal rule is to never start a new book until I’ve finished the one I’m reading.
So a couple days ago, I pulled the book back down from my bookshelf. It’s still sitting here on the arm of my sofa just waiting to be finished.
I don’t know why I’m having such a hard time finishing it. I suppose its because the last time my Mama was here visiting (in October) she read a couple of my books (a Nicolas Sparks and a Mary Kay Andrews) and as she finished each one, we would discuss it. She always read a book or two while she was visiting and often took a few home. For later. When she died she still had a dozen of my books that I had loaned her … waiting to read. Mostly Danielle Steel … the love stories!
Growing up Mama read the newspaper (The Albany Herald) and magazines (she always had numerous magazine subscriptions: Southern Living, Guidepost, Woman’s Day, Family Circle). BUT she didn’t really start to read novels until I got her started. Oh she would read the occasion novel but she always said she didn’t have time for books … until I got her into reading.
So with that said, I WILL get this book finished and I WILL post a review … just not sure how long it will take me.
But how appropriate the title, huh? ‘One Day at a Time’
