I became a quote junkie in 1953. Kinda' young for this addiction...however, I was (and still am) an insatiable reader. When I was able to join a library, I was overwhelmed that I could read 1,000,000 books for free. Not all at one time. I've been known to read several books at a time, having one book in the bathroom, one in the kitchen & 2 in my handbag (just in case I finish one, I have another to take it's place.

There was a TV program called "Outer Limits", which was science fiction, with a twist ending. In the program that has alway haunted me, was actor, Burgess Merideth. He, like me, loved books, however, never had the privacy & time to read. Suddenly, it was the end of the world. Merideth went to a library & exaulted with the idea of a million books at his leisure... fell down some stairs & broke is glasses, which were as thick as Coke bottles.

I am working now on my 2nd book, "Quote Junkies TWO. Once a Junkie, always a junkie. Thank goodness, no meetings.

I live with my husband of 56 years in a nursing home in Warminster, PA. We have 3 incedible daughters. One daughter is now in heaven. We also have an incredible granddaughter.
I sketch faces, I knit, I socialize with friends... however, I'm usually working on my new book.

Quote Junkies
Price: $4.99 USD. Words: 48,800. Language: American English. Published: September 14, 2020. Categories: Nonfiction » Reference » Quotations
Quote Junkies celebrates people who have "said it best".when it comes to witty, sarcastic, spiritial, rare and often surprising sayings. Many of the quotations will not be found in other books. Starting at age 16, I began filling up book after book with quotes that moved me in some way. I'm now 75. I give thanks for computers; I didn't know how I was to save these valuable books.
