I have not read an entire book for what seems like years. I’ve been prodded by my mother and sisters to join their book club, made attempts, but failed. I have professed my longing for the new Amazon Kindle Fire for the promise I might read because it made reading convenient, but never purchased it. I read children’s books, but I don't consider them books. And I often wondered which author would change my "spare time" habits and keep me engaged long enough to turn the next page.
