|1991 Lawrie reading on cruise ship|
At one point in our lives we had one room in our house filled wall to wall, floor to ceiling with shelves of hard cover or paperback novels. Books on antique cars, antique furniture, gardening, cooking, Canadian history, or house re-modeling; books we had read and happily loaned out to interested friends.

Our biggest problem is paying for our reading addiction. When we are in the mood both Lawrie and I can devour a book a day. The books cost anywhere from $1.99 to $14.99 each! However, e-books have solved a couple of problems for us. They have given us the ability to purchase a book in English from any Wi-Fi location in the world as we learned this summer while traveling in France and Italy. And we have recently discovered a number of new-to-us authors; authors such as Joel Goldman, Tom Lowe, Michael McGarrity, Andrew Peterson, CJ Lyons, Brett Battles, Nick Pirog and G.M. Ford to name just a few.
