MHC Reads

Many of you know,  Mom is my biggest influence when it comes to reading. She was the one who took time away from her busy day to take me to the library. I still remember all the fun I had pondering over what to choose for the book clubs and summer reading program I was involved in.  

At that time,  there was no realization that someday I would move to take a job I loved working at a public library where I would actually get to paid to discuss books, nor was I aware that I would go onto freelance for a  publisher where I'd earn money marketing them. Well, those jobs have come and gone, but Mom is still close by, and we continue to share our love for Mary Higgins Clark reads and I  continue to review books.

Below is the list we follow, some we have read years ago and started again. The highlighted ones we've recently read.  Mom checks in here daily and we update the list frequently. If you have a favorite, feel free to comment on it.
