I’ve always been a homebody. For me, there really is no place like home. Before I retired, I spent many a Michigan winter hunkered down at home, never leaving the house except for essentials, like work or food. Home was my happy place.
Coronavirus hasn’t changed that so much as it’s placed a new slant on it. Now it’s important to stay home—to prevent the spread of the virus, save lives, and ease the burden on doctors, nurses, and other medical personnel. Staying home is how we do our part.
If, like me, your favorite housebound activity is reading, I have a treat for you. With the permission of the authors, I’m sharing the first page from their recently released or up-coming books. These are some of my favorite authors. Hopefully you’ll be hooked by those first few paragraphs and find you next favorite book!
