Reading and relaxing at Lake Anna...a great way to spend your time. If you think you would like to spend some of your time doing just that but do not have a place to do it, let me know.
In case you are curious as I was, that big book is the complete works of Jane Austen and my daughter-in-law was just about finished. We have lots of readers in my family and I love it. I was a big reader as a child and continue to love it. Finding enough time to do as much reading as I would like to do is, of course, another matter.
I also find that when I take a book down to our dock I seldom get much read. Listening to the water, looking out at the water, taking photos, and so many other things seem to get in the way. I do much more relaxing than reading down there.
