A Time of ChangePosted on the 12 March 2011 by Jimblack78
My parents always supported my reading habit. It was very erratic until I discovered science fiction. Once I read "The Runaway Robot" by Lester Del Rey, I was hooked for life. My father built corner shelves in my bedroom to hold my toys. They were basically cleared off and became bookshelves for the rest of my time at home. It was not long until I started filling them.
My father said if I read law books like I read science fiction, I would have been a lawyer in no time. But both of my parents never had a problem with my reading a genre that did not interest them. They also had no problem with me watching Star Trek.
In 1981, my father passed away. Earlier this month, my mother's dementia took a turn for the worst. Last Sunday she departed this world for a better place. On the same day our computer crashed. Thursday night our basement flooded. With the loss of my mother last week, the computer and flooding did not seem important.
I continued reading last week but did not do any reviews. This week I plan on writing reviews of all the books I finished last week. I was able to finish numerous books that I had started.
