However, I have no problem reading news articles, magazines, blogs or bulletins despite the fact that I've been called dyslexic before by my optometrist.
I have been working on my reading for the past few years. I have tried to read a book hear and there and I started this blog so I could sharpen my skills, spell correctly and put stories together. Between me and spell check, I think I've done a pretty good job.
I'm sorta ashamed to say I have only read four whole books in my lifetime. Not counting the Dick and Jane books from elementary school. Another reason I always failed in English and Literature.
I will say, reading is getting easier and I actually enjoy it at times.
Today, I read Remembering Big by Rick Watson. He is one of my blogging friends and I really enjoy reading his post. You can find his blog at "Life 101". I was excited when my autographed copy made it to my mailbox.
I was caught up in "Remember Big" from the very beginning. It was full of several short stories. That's my kind of book! ha. Even though there seems to be about a twenty years gap between us, I could still relate to many of Ricks stories from the paddlings to burnouts, to playing hooky to keen hickory sticks. Some of the stories made me laugh and at least three of them made my eyes wail up with tears. It gave me the feeling of sitting in a porch swing and talking about the good ole days. It was an easy book to read and I didn't even put it down. I read it straight through. That was a first for me.....and a slow day at work.
Rick, if your reading this, thanks again for the book. The Medco Pharmacy story made my coffee come out of my nose. And I take it your a Chevy man.
