I am a self proclaimed Weather Geek. I always have been from a very young age. The weather fascinates me and looking back I could have been a meteorologist. Why I never went that route is beyond me. So I naturally gravitate towards those types of books. Jim Cantore and I are kindred spirits. <3 him!
I also love reading biographies about presidents or other political figures. History holds a special attraction for me, too. I used to read everything I could find on the Civil War.
The only fiction books I read in the past twenty years has been ones written by Tom Clancy, and although fiction it's as close to non-fiction as they come. His knowledge of the military and political scene is uncanny.
So this year when I decided to read more I meant I really want to try and broaden my scope. I knew if I picked up something so outside my box I probably wouldn't finish it, so I selected a book I read a very long time ago - "20,000 Leagues Under the Sea". I'm into my 3rd day of reading it and I am enjoying it. I have to remember it's just a book.
I did finish up the last scarf for the Dad of my Mom's neighbors. I think it came out nice and it has a good feel to it.
