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.
