Good morning, Gail! If, prior to reading this, you asked me to recommend a book I thought you might like, a “Gail “ book, I’d choose Erma Bombeck. As we age (not the you’re old), I believe we should try to expand our reading portfolio, but also believe, our time should be spent on what brings us joy. I used to have a reading rule that once a book is started, it must be completed. No more! If I get several chapters into a book and don’t like the characters or story, I cut my losses and move on to the next book waiting for me. Life is too short and no one is waiting for me to turn in a book report!

I was always a writer but lived in a bookkeeper’s body before I found Medium and broke free — well, almost. Working to work less and write more.
