Hi - I've been reading all these wonderful replies and I've just joined the group. I had no idea it existed but found it by accident while looking at another Shelfarian's page and her groups. This seems to be right up my alley, so I'll introduce myself now that I'm part of you.
My name is Marie from Massachusetts, USA. I'm a mother (6 kids, all over 40), grandmother (10 grandkids, all over 20) and great-grandmother of 9, the oldest 17 and the youngest 3 months). Yes, we're a busy bunch! I've been a widow for 15 years after a 44-year marriage that ran the gamut from wonderful/happy to broke/easy. There was seldom a dull moment, are loads of wonderful memories and those six kids are marvelous to their mother, have grand memories of their dad. I live now with one of my sons and his wife, whom I love like one of my own. I'm such a lucky woman! Also, since Arthur died I've become a snowbird to Florida six months (October - May each year). Can't stand cold weather and LOVE the heat, so it's perfect for me.
Reading is, and always has been, one of my favorite pastimes - and I've read thousands of books over all these years. My favorite genre now is romance and I've come to the point where I can't stand reading about sicko minds, blood and gore, etc. Good mysteries are okay, just NOT the hurting/killing/anguish. Love history and Native American characters, to name just a couple; and I absolutely love Shelfari. I could go on forever (love gabbing), but you're probably tired of this by now!
