Turn the news off! Read a book! Have a conversation!


I just can’t. The news is so full of…. BAD STUFF. I want to turn the cable off. I know this “stuff” happens, but we are bombarded with BAD from every direction. Gene likes to read the news on his iPad and sometimes he will read something out loud. I asked him to stop. It’s everywhere – I see it. I know what’s going on. It’s just too much. Everyone has their opinion of our government – of our current events – of their religious beliefs. I GET THAT. Stop bombarding us with it.

At this rate – we will all be on zoloft, or xanax, or some other anti anxiety medication just to get through a normal day. MAKE IT STOP.

I want some GOOD NEWS.

I’m listening to books on CD in the car. I’m trying to read (AND WRITE) to occupy my mind. I’m reading a book each morning called The Miracle Morning to see if I can self-help my way to better day. I’m trying to put the earphones in and listen to music when Gene is watching the news.

Post a link in the comments and tell us what you’re reading. I’m looking for romance. I’m looking for a STORY that will capture my attention so I can turn away from all this insanity.

I want to see some book responses… GO…
