MARCH IS BOOK READING MONTH


Let's celebrate this last half of March with reading a book each week. Turn off the television and turn on music of your liking; sit in your favorite chair; have a beverage of choice near by; and then open up a book. 

With a book you will travel to faraway places and meet amazing people, real or imagined.
Historical facts and figures might be available.
You will have romantic, spiritual, emotional, or historical experiences.

       If you are a writer and/or blogger I invite you to check out
                       The Sully Award Competition
              (https://mikeallegra.com/2017/03/21/sully-award-competition-now-open/)

Here are some books that I have recently read, which I highly recommend:
     Pregnant Future by Joy Lo-Bamijoko
     The Neon Houses by Linda Mims
     Subnormal by Stuart Kenyon
     There is a Reaper by Michael Lynes
     Cottage on the Border by Hannah Warren
     Loggerhead by T.A. Peters
     The Elixir by Lori Soard

These are just a few of the many great books I have read. I have chosen to highlight these because they are on a wide variety of subjects and represent different genres.

And, I must include my own books:

     Davida: Model & Mistress of Augustus Saint-Gaudens (based on the true story of America's premier sculptor and his 25 year love affair with his model).
     Novy's Son (a look at the importance of a father's role in the life of his son. As a nurse therapist I counseled several men who had this issue. It also was true for my grandfather, father, and sons).
     Outshine: An Ovarian Cancer Memoir. This book is for anyone who has faced a life-threatening or life-changing illness. You will learn about healthy ways to cope as well as about the deadliest form of gynecologic cancer.

     ALL PROCEEDS FROM ALL THREE BOOKS GO TO 
                 GYNECOLOGIC CANCER RESEARCH


Books are the quietest and most constant of friends; they are the most accessible and wisest of counselors, and the most patient of teachers.  ~Charles W. Eliot
