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.
Born and raised in Pensacola, Florida (Escambia High Class of '66), I have lived in Rochester, NY since 1974. Throughout my blog, in pictures and words, I will share my journey through life. I am a person with many interests, traveling, bicycling, kayaking and canoeing, sporting clays, target shooting, spending time with family, friends, and my Labrador Retrievers, Morgan and Bailey, smoking meat in my Weber smoker, to name just a few. I am a Conservative Republican and a strong believer in Second Amendment Rights. Feel free to stop by often and leave a comment. I enjoy hearing from those who find their way to my blog and through blogging, I've made friends all over the world.
