The Reviewer

sherrey2013_2My name is Sherrey Meyer, and I have always loved to read.  So much so that I tempted the wrath of my mother growing up by hiding under the blankets on my bed with a flashlight to sneak a book to read.  Mama thought that reading was a waste of time.  Time spent must show a relative production of something during that time.  Reading had no tangible or visible evidence of your precious time.  However, my father, a printer and publisher, felt differently and he encouraged my love of the printed word.

Today I write to add an another element to my love of words, and I am drafting a memoir about my troubled relationship with my mother.  Now a mother myself as well as grandma and great-grandma I have attempted in different ways to pass along my love of reading.  Who knows how successful I have been; time and history will tell.

When I’m not reading or writing, I’m spending quality time with my husband, Bob, a retired industrial designer.  I too am now retired which makes our time even richer.  We share a love of reading, music, our home and yard, our children and grandchildren and those great-grands.  Additionally, I can be found dabbling in a bit of quilting and knitting.  Suffice it to say, I’m not bored!

I look forward to sharing the books I’ve read, and exchanging thoughts and comments with you about them.

You had me at “I tempted the wrath of my mother growing up by hiding under the blankets on a bed with a flashlight to sneak a book to read” hahaha <3 Please let me know when your memoir is complete!
