A good read
Like a lot of us, I often get buried in "must do" things and never get to the things I really want to do, things that calm my soul and make me happy.
Reading a good book is one of my favorite things to do. I am a big fan of John Jakes. I love the way he combines history with a fictional story. Many years ago, I read his Kent Family Chronicles, a series of about 6 or 7 books that told the story of a young man who came to this country and established a printing business. The books told his family story through many generations. Loved those books! Someday I will go back and read them again.
Charleston, the book I am reading now, is a wonderful story of the early history of Charleston, South Carolina spanning the years from the 1700s into the late 1800s.
I can't imagine any John Jakes' book that I wouldn't like.
What are your favorite books?
