    I love to read. It is a lost skill. I love to hold a real book in my hands. Turning each page in anticipation. I do have an Kindle but it will never compare to a real book. I welcome any suggested reads.

    I'm still on book 3 of The Lightbringer, sort of stalled there, reached a boring ass chapter and kinda just left off. But I will return to it definitely. For sure.

    As for recommendations, if you haven't read it already read The Wheel of Time series by Robert Jordan (pen name).

    Calliers, I love to read, always have and always will. I have a tablet and a Kindle reader. Both have many books on them. I too like the real books with real paper however I have run out of room to keep them all and so the Kindles and tablets are more convenient.

    Lol, PurpleRose1, not running out of space is one of the main reasons I love my Kindle. Don't even need a bookshelf. :D

    But If I had a big house and if only I could have a room dedicated as a library, I would be in heaven. A big comfy chair in front of a roaring fireplace and surrounded by my beloved books. Awwww

    Yup, come back down to earth @PurpleRose1, it's hard to have one whole room dedicated to books, it is basically impossible, unless you've got MONEY to blow.

    I refer you to these very wealthy rappers who can give you an example of how wealthy you'd have to be:

    As an Immortal, I don't need to come back down to earth. I already have one wall built full of books and who needs money? If I were living alone, one room could be dedicated to books. That may happen still in the future. You never know.....

    Oh wahhh, you millennials only know how to wine. We may have started the mess but you carry on. Besides it's all by design from the devil to make all future generations fail. I say live your life each day to the fullest possible and view life with love and optimism. One day at a time, my friend for tomorrow is never promised.

    You guys always play the big baby card whenever we say you guys dropped the ball. Oh well, life is good for me, but my other friends suffer, a lot of them can't find work, can't afford to go back to school, can't pay their debts, etc. I personally don't blame you guys though, life is what you make it. I strongly believe that.

    Stop lumping me in with "those guys", I have suffered through my life and you know it. How we pick up the pieces of this life and survive is what is important. "Big baby card, my a**" Everyone blames everyone else for their hard life. Each of us are responsible for our own lives. I know a lot of people who have had a hard life but they stayed strong and rose above their weakness and society and succeeded. There are a lot of people out there who just find it easier to wallow in self pity. And then there are those who refuse to let their social status hold them back.

    I mainly just had a shitty childhood. Most of my adult life has been fair, and these days my life is WONDERFUL. I get to enjoy anything I want as I am single, and can afford my hobbies.

    I am sorry, I didn't mean to lump you in, just meant it was your generation. But I think we can agree with what you said, if you want to succeed you can, it just takes a bit of elbow grease to turn your life around. Anyone can succeed - anyone.

    No worries my dear friend, All generations have failures. The trick is to rise above the failures and not allow them to bury you.
