To Blog or Not to Blog?

Ok, so I've taken a giant leap forward and created a Blog! Can you believe it? I'm not exactly sure where I'm going with this, but it's something I've been thinking about for a while so... ta da! Since I love to read, I thought one thing I might do here is write my thoughts about the books I'm reading. Today I finished a really great book called The Blue Cotton Gown: A Midwife's Memoir by Patricia Harman. It is the memoir of a nurse-midwife practicing in West Virginia. In it she tells the stories of her patients and her own story of financial struggle trying to keep her practice afloat. The stories she shares provide a very personal look at each woman's life, loves and struggles. She expresses the worries, pain and joy of motherhood especially well and I found myself empathizing with many of the women portrayed. Patricia Harmon herself is a warm, caring and nurturing practitioner. The kind of medical professional we all search for and hope to find. A great read. I recommend it!

I love A Tree Grows in Brooklyn! It's on my bi-annual reread list.

Congrats on the new blog. I'm looking forward to reading more.
