Hello! My name is ON_A_DIET. I was always a bookworm.. However, as I do not have a car, I have to telecommute for work, which makes reading books quite difficult as I am always at my laptop.

What type of books do I read? I permit myself religious, cookbooks, fitness books, leadership books, etc. Nothing trashy.

I prefer paper books as opposed to Kindle books. I am at my laptop enough as it is!

So, last night, before falling asleep, I read the first chapter of DASH diet Action Plan. Seems like it will be a good one. Have any of you read it? Do any of you follow it?

Well, that is my 2 cents for today. Happy to be on the team.

Sincerely,
ON_A_DIET

Sorry, just meant what the team is reading - as in, what individual books people are enjoying :) Or if there was a monthly book to read.

I've just joined SP this month (Nov 2016) and am learning my way around the site. SP has so much to offer, and I'm trying to take advantage of what I need most. I hadn't considered a readers team until I ran into this one, but a lightbulb went off. Used to be I read constantly, especially to relax. But after I retired and now with all the time in the world it's just a habit I've lost. The last few years my reading has been replaced by online mahjong.

I'd like to recapture the exquisite sense of losing myself in a riveting book, and also to keep my mind alive. I also like the fact that fitness is encouraged, which I haven't been into.

So, I'm opening a book tonight and looking forward to it.
