Today I have a doctor's appointment for my son. Of course I'm bringing my Kindle but with hundreds of options for books to read, I find myself in a quandry. Sometimes so many options makes the choice overly difficult in choosing something to read. I have to admit that mostly, I read fiction. I love romance novels, both inspirational and mainstream, but I branch out occasionally and read something different. It's always refreshing to begin something out of the box for myself. Currently I'm working on " A Short History of Rome" which I find highly interesting. But today I think I'll stick with my fiction love for the dreaded waiting room. As I look through my list of books I'll hear little whispers from each one reminding me of the story, the characters and my favorite parts. Currently I think I'm heading toward a re-read...that way I'll be ok with interruptions! I'm thinking Catherine Palmer's " A Kiss of Adventure." It was a free book on Kindle last week and I've been a fan of Mrs. Palmer's books in the past, but this one far surpassed my expectations. I love a tall dark and handsome hero with blue eyes...reminds me of my husband. The book was full of life, adventure and a great love story with mystery mixed in. I'm definately feeling that book today...I'll let you know what whispers I'm left with...

Have you ever read a book that whispers its sweet lines in your ear long after you've closed its pages? Those are my favorite. The ones you come back to on a rainy day with a hot cup of coffee or tea and quilt spread over your lap. Books that somehow transcend the page and take up residence in your heart. It could be because of a character, or a great twist, or maybe it's just because the book makes you laugh so hard, or cry so desperately. This blog is dedicated to those books. Have one? Let me know, I love finding new ones. I'm sure you do too, so keep checking back as I am going to be adding updates on the new books I read that whisper to me.
