Kate Says: "Reading Is Fun!"

Like most of you I'm an avid reader. I'm hoping to re-connect with old friends, make new friends, and of course spread the love of reading and writing around to everyone!

Lighthousekeeping

Lighthousekeeping - Jeanette Winterson Jeanette Winterson came to Chicago during the tour of this book. It was a very exciting reading that I will never forget. I brought my books to be signed by her and she was very gracious and quite personable when it was my turn to speak to her. We all must remember, myself included, that even great writers are just people underneath it all.

Anyways, when I got home the first thing I did when I got home was plop down on my couch and devoured this book. I was like a kid in a candy shop, I just couldn't stop reading. This is a very good book about love, loss and the ties that bind. Friends are the family we choose for ourselves, and sometimes that family becomes more meaningful than the ones that we are stuck with. I would certainly recommend this book to new readers of Winterson as well as seasoned readers.
