(In the photo, Mother and other family members are posing for a picture with me during my book-signing event in Plattsburgh, New York. COVID has robbed me of the opportunity to attend book signings and hold book signings.)
Thank you for visiting My News. I could use some help today. My soon-to-be-ninety-three-year-old mother is an avid reader. In fact, she taught me to read because the school I attended was using the Look-Say method rather than a phonics method to teach reading. I was learning to read too slowly.
Mother has read most of the biographies and memoirs in her local library as well as my husband, Barry Dimick’s wonderful memoir: Second Son: Growing Up in Vermont’s Northeast Kingdom. I want to buy her another book. Do you have a recommendation for a good book for her age group?
This morning, I ordered The Personal Librarian. I saw one of the two authors on Good Morning America. I was intrigued because one woman author is Black. The other is white. It seems to me that should make for an interesting perspective.
What makes you decide to buy a book? What is the best book choice you’ve made this year? I’d love to hear. Please go to www.MelodyDeanDimick.com. and click on Contact Melody to comment.
