I have Been Gone, but Hopefully Not Forgotten

I have been on a professional retreat for the past two weeks and have been studying as well as reading up a storm. I will be posting some reviews very shortly, but in the meantime, I hope all of you are still reading and enjoying and checking out other blogs that give information about good books that stimulate and bring entertainment as well as giving all of us a "window" into other times, places, cultures, and situations. Life is such a varied smorgasbord of experience! And reading opens up so many contexts that are often not possible to enjoy in real life. I would have loved to have had sufficient funds to travel all the places that fascinate me. Since I didn't and don't books are my transportation of sorts. I hope you are finding some good books and will post some of your discoveries.

Hi Dr J.

I hope your retreat went/is going well.

I've been craving contemporaries lately and am in the process of reading up some books I have on my TBR pile. I went out of my "comfort zone" and read a woman's fiction or 'chick lit' book this past weekend and actually enjoyed, lol!

Looking forward to reading your thoughtful reviews. :)

All that time on your retreat I'm sure is being well spent with all the reading. I can't wait to see what you've devoured and will review. :)

Thanks for your responses. I always a premier fan of historical romance, but I have spent the last few days reading some contemporary books as well. It is good to be "dragged" out of a particular era into another time frame -- keeps the mind sharper and always more aware ot the plethora of talent there is "out there" in all the romance genres.
