Memories of Books and Authors

I was wondering today how many people, like myself and maybe you, see a book that they read a ages ago and get sidetracked at looking up other books they have read, that’s what I was doing part of the time today. I was looking through books by the Grande Dame of Science Fiction and Fantasy Andre Norton. After writing 130 books over a 70 year period she passed away at in March 2005 at age 93. She had always been one of my favorite authors bringing me hours and hours of enjoyable reading. Today I was cherishing her memory.

    I had to comment on Andre Norton. I used to read her when I was growing up. I can't remember the number of books and series of books of her's that I read. Amazing childhood friend.

    Nice to have found you, Mr Spew-Rider
