About a Book by Shelley Giusti

I wrote this the other day  and my friends Dru Ann and Lisa were so kind to read it and give me there thoughts about it.  It is a passion of mine and I hope you like it.

About a Book


What is it about books that keep readers coming back for more, Is it the beautiful covers of the books that draw us to them, is it the thrill of anticipation in finding the one book that we want read and have to have? Do we like the adventure of meeting new people and visiting new towns even revisiting old towns that we have been to before. Is it about the people we meet with each turn of the page? Is it about a love romance that we hope will happen? Do we like to solve the case before the end of the book.


For me it is all of these things. I love that books can take you to places you may never get to go. People you may never meet in real life become real to you in a book. I enjoy going along side of the main character and solving the case right there with them.  
I love the details the author paints of the towns and brings them to life for you as a reader to visit and become part of. You get to know each person and some you love and some not so much, but you get to know them still and want to know more even as the story ends.

I often imagine myself as part of the story I’m reading. Will I solve the murder before the sleuth does? I have even found myself say “ the answer to solving it is right here”. That is how involved with my books I get.  Will we figure it out  whodunit together? I picture myself in the town getting involved. It’s my own little reality world a way for me to escape life around me.


So every first Tuesday of the month you know that you will be visiting old friends and places and meeting new friends and going to new places, and no matter how things are going in the real world you can take a break from it and get lost in a book. Even if only for a moment.


I often imagine myself as part of the story I’m reading. Will I solve the murder before the sleuth does? I have even found myself say “ the answer to solving it is right here”. That is how involved with my books I get.  Will we figure it out  whodunit together? I picture myself in the town getting involved. It’s my own little reality world a way for me to escape life around me.


When I look at a bookshelf in my home I don’t see only books, I see old and new friends waiting for me to meet and visit with. Whether for coffee or tea, or murder, I enjoy the journey every step of the way. So the next time you pick up a book to read ,get to know the town and the people you may have a new friend who is there waiting for another visit.

The authors have a special way of pulling you into a story and making it a home away from home for you. They keep you hooked until the end and sometimes leave you with a cliffhanger that no matter how long you have to wait for the next one it will be worth it when release day comes.

I just wanted to share this piece with you.Hope you enjoyed it!
