Random Readers is a recurring segment here on the Friends of the Library Blog. It’s our opportunity to get to know you, and to maybe get ideas on great reads that we hadn’t considered. If you’re interested in participating in this segment, follow this link to complete a questionnaire.
I have always enjoyed reading. In 2007 I broke my back and had to retire on disability though I was not nearly ready for retirement. Books became my savior. I travel frequently to visit my son in Northern Minnesota and I listen to audio books and I look forward to the drive. For Christmas of 2009 my son gave me a Kindle. I never leave the house with out it. I prefer reading to watching TV. I continue to spend time in the hospital due to my accident and I read the entire time.
