Lists: People I Really Want to Read About

Remember “lists?”  I introduced my first list on the 13th, and you responded with wonderful additions.  You can read the comments if you click on the link.

Here’s my next and last list for January.  Anyone who adds an item by commenting on either post by January 31, is entered in a drawing for an autographed book.  No religion, politics or snarkiness allowed–at least nothing very snarky. 

Just follow the topic and speak from the heart.

Do you suspect an ulterior motive in my subject selection?  Of course.  I’m listening.


People I Really Want to Read About:

1–People who pick themselves up and keep going

2–People who make mistakes

3–People who fall in love, even if they know better

4–People who have something to teach me

5–People who live in worlds I’ll never inhabit and still make them feel familiar

Now it’s your turn.  Who speaks loudly enough that you have to pick up their book and immerse yourself in their life?

Who do you want to read about?

    I pick up a book for many reasons… but often I look for
    -Heroes in everyday circumstances
    -Women I can relate to
    -People who strive to embrace life’s joy
    -People who are connected to their friends and their family
    -People who embrace themselves flaws and all.

    Guys who aren’t afraid to be tender
    Guys cuddling and cooing to babies
    Guys who think ahead and don’t just react
    Guys who swish the toothpaste spit down the sink
    Guys who cook for their families
    Women who really like their guys and spend time time with them because they want to, not just because they have to

    This is the kind of guy I’m married to. Guess I should tell him why I love him now and then.

    People who are true to themselves.
    People who celebrate their lives, instead of complain.
    People who have marriages that work and last, not the 55 minute marriages.
    People who over come obstacles to succeed.

    I love to read books about people who make the world a better place and inspire me to want to make a difference in someone’s life.

    I pick number 1. I’ve been there when I had to pick myself up and go on. It was not easy, but I did it. When I look back after all these years, I am surprised that it was even possible. Those stories strike a cord with me.
