I enjoy helping others especially in making items for certain causes and gifts to family and friends. I also like gardening, cooking and baking, writing letters, visiting the country, visiting national parks and reading. I read a wide variety of books, especially classic literature (started reading several classic books recently and loving it so far), historical fiction and christian fiction books. I especially love learning and reading about the aristocracy as well.

Comment: I enjoyed reading your reading log! That Bill Bryson book has been sitting on my bookshelf for awhile, but I haven't felt compelled to read it (got it at a community book sale for $1!). I think I'm going to start reading it next.
