    Evidently, this is not the right place to post

    this experience I'm having here in EP, but for lack of a better place, some EPeeps I see around, should actually affiliate themselves with a group named: "I can Read".

    I'm combining two pleasures: reading

    and train travel. 'Slow Train to Switzerland' by Diccon Bewes is an account of two journeys 150 years apart following the same route from the UK to Swtzerland. I'm really enjoying the descriptions of days gone by and the modern equivalents which, having made some of the...

    Thought This Was Worth Sharing

    A little boy asked his mother, "Why are you crying?" "Because I'm a woman," she told him. "I don't understand," he said. His Mom just hugged him and said, "And you never will." Later the little boy asked his father, "Why does mother seem to cry for no reason?" "All women cry...

    Sometimes I read to much.

    .. 'Just one chapter' to me is like 'just one beer' to an alcoholic...And maybe it is a similar addiction. To escape the pressure and thoughts and everything pressing in, to just forget and escape from all those things pressing on my brain, to think of something else strongly...

    I Especially Adore Audiobooks.

    Chores go faster! Hands-free! Classics and physics and metaphysics... it is a smorgasbord, a cornucopia of wealth. Amazing variety of experiences in autobiographies, amazing amount of speculation in biographies. Spectacular variety in religions. Love it!

    or Kindles or tablets. I love going to the library and browsing the shelves and could spend hours doing so, if I had hours. Books help me escape the world and be happy.
