About Barbara: 
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.
