If you are new to this forum family then you may be wondering what kind of goofy question is that on a health care forum. idea We all suffer with medical conditions and with most of us there is pain involved...sometimes a lot of pain. Or maybe you are the loved one of one of these persons. This forum is all about how we help and support each other, how we gain back more quality to our lives, and how we can learn and share what we gain along the way and hopefully make not only our lives better but the lives of others who come to join us.

But we need to also remember that there is the other side of life...the side that isn't concentrated on illness and pain. That's why we started the daily Koffee Klatch. This is a time to laugh, reminisce, chit-chat about the silly things in our lives...all fun things and no pain. In fact the 'P' word is not allowed... tongue So each day we share our thoughts or experiences on a different topic. Often it includes food, sometimes we talk about our past, and other times we just get goofy! Laughter is our goal. So, please join us whether this is your very first day on Healing Well or you're a seasoned veteran.
(We sure do miss you Miss Chutz! We ALL hope your having fun!)
     What are you currently reading?
      I am reading a very fast paced novel by John Grisham called "The Appeal". Mr. Grisham's novels never cease to lure me in quickly! His characters are always so easy to relate to. His vivd descriptions make me feel as though I am standing "in the story". I will admitt though, it is very hard to read a "paper back" novel when I am used to being "spoiled" by the text to speech option on my Kindle2. :-)   (It is my last paper back book, left over from an order made just before my husband surpised me with a Kindle.)
       So what are you reading?

TWO roads diverged in a yellow wood,  
And sorry I could not travel both  
And be one traveler, long I stood

Oh, how I wish I was doing some pleasure reading right now! But it seems all I'm reading these days are applications for low cost insurance, medications, etc, etc, etc,

I guess reading the posts here is the most enjoyable thing at the moment!

Thanks again, Dani, for keeping this going!

I just started reading "The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society" by Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows....was in Costco on Friday looking at books and this lady came up to me and insisted I would love this book so I thought why not?  Just started it this morning and have to say its enjoyable so far, on page 80 already...!

I'm reading (or trying to read, at least) 'The Silmarillion'. It passes the time whilst I'm stuck in bed coughing up green stuff. Also trying to do some educational reading for College, as I have essays to write.

'The Silmarillion' is a good book if you can get into it, but it's very very difficult reading. Takes a lot of understanding et cetera. For those who don't know, 'The Silmarillion' in the prequal of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings.

It's a tiring book but well worth reading, if you can manage it. I'm only on page 17 and I've been reading for an hour, it's that involved lol.

Well currently I am reading a book called Rebuilding When Your Relationship Ends  by Dr. Bruce Fisher and Dr, Robert Alberti,  it was recommended by my counselor, I just got it the other day. My main read has been a 30 question harrassment (that is what my lawyer calls it) sheet by my wifes lawyer, mostly all financial questions but theyl cover in detail, all financial transactions for the last three years, including the monthly high and low balances of all checking accounts for the last three years! Do you have any idea how hard that is information is to get? Especially when the wife is the one who took care of most of that stuff! On some of the questions I just wrote "please speak english, I don't know what your talking about!" Some of the questions are written is such legal terminology that I really don't know what he wants! Anyway that has been my main read the last few days/weeks! My most important read has been right here at Healing Well Chronic Pain forum and second at Sleep Apnea Support,  and my E-mail.
Chris I will give you lots of credit for reading the Silmarilllion  I have the book, but I have never made it all the way through it! I have read the Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings at least a couple of "several times over', in the last 40 or more years! I honestly think they were the best stories written! But the Silmarillion! that is a different type of read altogether!

I'm re-reading "Whispers" by Dean Koontz. I love his books and have re-read many of his books.
In my nightstand I have the latest Iris Jonhason novel waiting.

I would like to read Ted Kennedy's memoirs, but I know it will be in demand at the library right now, and I sure can't afford to buy the book. Plus I've got so many other things to do, I can wait. But for me it will be like a journey through the history I've lived through.
