Beauford: I am an compulsive reader. I read a book a day, I do not won a tv, yes I listen to pbs radio. I just finished reading Mrs. Lincoln's Dressmaker. It was wonderful. I know you will enjoy it. You are welcome to PM me with other great suggestions for books. I do not read fantasy, science fiction and or vampire books.

The Shenandoah Album series by Emilie Richards is also interesting. A certain character will be featured in each book with periferal characters. The next book will focus on another character. Physical books can be bought from Amazon. They also have Kindle books for this series.

The Benni Harper series by Earlene Fowler, is good, especially if you like detective mysteries.
