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?
