Ruthi Reads!

Buckeye born 'n' bred in the hills of central Ohio, I've the spirit of a wanderer. Though I've come full circle to return to the land of my birth, who knows when I may take flight once again in search of my value and worth as a spirit of the sun.

Through the journey 'neath many suns, I've come to believe...
          Love and forever are only for as long as they last.
          In the future, the mem'ries o' yesteryear shall be vast.
          Live the day in the present, before it becomes the past.

I love to read and I love to write, with the world of rhyme my favorite place to spend my time. I believe each of us is granted at least one special gift in this thing we do called life and I believe we're meant to share it with others along the way. I feel I've been given the gift of using poetry and prose to spread a bit o' sunshine into the lives of others and I work hard to get better at this every day.

Several books have made it to my all-time favorites list and remained there for a decade or more: The Bible, King James Version; Sand and Foam, by Kahlil Gibran; Women Who Run With the Wolves, by Clarissa Pinkola Estes; The Pearl and The Grapes of Wrath, both by John Steinbeck; Anna and the King of Siam, by Margaret Landon; and Call of the Wild, by Jack London.

I receive no monetary payment for writing the book reviews I'll be placing here. I will post professional reviews of the books I read, honest reviews as well.

A copy of your book would look great on my bookshelf! Follow Ruthi Reads, then contact me to send me a signed copy of your book to add to my list to read and review!

Blessings & a bit o' sunshine...Ruthi
