{Husband's Letters}

Wednesday, May 30, 2012

Dear Emma Aikman, last night you played paper football with me on the floor. I must say, you are pretty good with those touchdowns. And I think you're brave to let me flick sidewinder field goals at you. Dear 4 Hours of Disc Golf, I should have worn sunscreen. Ouch. Dear Non-fiction Books, you easily win my heart over with your real-life stories, details that can never be learned in a history classroom, and feels-like-I'm-there moments. Thank you for the entertainment and life challenges that are riddled throughout your pages. Dear Mrs. Loerke, this could be us in 50 years! (Just swap out the floral prints for Patagonia pullovers and Chacos).

Over and out,
Tim

Fiction or non-fiction?

I love both, fiction and non-fiction. It really depends on my mood which I prefer to read. I also like those "feels-like-I'm-there-moments" Tim is talking about but sometimes it's also fun to escape to a world full of adventure and fantasy :-)
Emily, I love this picture of you! You look amazing :)

Totally non-fiction. I love the taste of the real.

OMIGOODNESS!! The mention of the Schwankes shocked me. So I followed your link and when I saw it was a Nebraska couple I was surprised to see old friends of my parents. My dad was the wholesale florist in Omaha and they bought from us all the time. Our families attended weekend florists conferences together over the years and their son and I were good friends. Since I live in OK now, I hadn't seen the local news up there but it was great to see them again...white hair now! It's a small world, right?!

I like a good fiction read every now and then, but lately they've let me down, repeatedly, and in big ways. I recently started a new biography and it is reinforcing my identity as a true non-fiction fan.

Non-fiction! Mary Roach is my favorite. Her books are about different aspects of the human body and are quite witty.

Ah! That old couple is so cute! Although I'm not really one for matching.

I'm Non-fiction all the way! I have a pile of 8 books on my nightstand I'm trying to tackle this year. I agree, learning all of this info and details you won't get anywhere else is what really draws me in.
