Daily Prompt: The Great Divide

When reading for fun, do you usually choose fiction or non-fiction? Do you have an idea why you prefer one over the other?

I love to read. On Saturdays I love to visit Barnes and Nobles, Target, or at the Flea Market. I love to feel them, the smell, and the texture of the books.  I love my Kindle, but I still preferred the paper.

I get excited when I add a new book to my collection.  I would read it in no time.

My favorites Spanish books:

  1. Marianela by Benito Perez Galdos
  2. Maria by Jorge Isaac
  3. Don Quixote by Cervantes

My Favorite Non-Fiction:

  1. History’s Greatest Mysteries and the secrets behind them by Bill Price
  2. Don’t know much about the series by Kenneth C. Davis
  3. Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert

My Favorite Fiction:

  1. Angel & Demons by Dan Brown
  2. The Da Vinci Code by Dan Brown
  3. Halloween La Veau series by Rose Pressey

I enjoy both fiction and nonfiction.

My New Resolution for 2014!

After a wonderful Christmas, it’s time to relax, eat leftovers, and enjoying the gifts we got from Santa and our families.  I got from my husband a Kindle Fire HDX so it’s time to play with my Kindle and downloads my books.

The kids are happy they got what they want and the little ones  they’re playing with their toys. So for now, I will relax and I don’t want to hear any mention of any retail store with their discounts.  I don’t care and they already have enough from me.

In a few days, we will be saying goodbye to 2013 and welcomed in 2014. I will be cooking just for my kids, hubby, and grandkids. My older kids will go to their party and I will be watching the Time Square Ball with my hubby and grandkids. Part of the tradition is having grapes so we can have our twelve wishes and of course our traditional kiss.

In addition I will try to make a new resolution for the New Year that in some cases I will forget a few days later. That’s one of the reasons I will not be making the losing weight resolution.

This time my resolution will be very simple:

1-Have more gratitude for all the little things I take for granted.

2-Be thankful for all the blessings I’m been receiving.

3-Have more compassion for the people I know and I don’t know.

4-Keep loving my wonderful husband of 30 years.

5-Take time to myself at least once a week and relax.

6-Been thankful for the love of my beautiful family.

7-Be more patience at work and ignore the ones who drive me crazy.

8-Keep loving my dog who gives me unconditional love.

9-Keep writing, writing, and writing!

10- Keep doing what I love to do.
