Health and fitness didn’t top everyone’s list of resolutions for 2016. A lot of our resolutions at Great Lakes Bay magazine started off with: “More time to …”
If you said “read” to complete that sentence, then you’re goal in 2016 is the same as a few of us here at Great Lakes Bay. The local libraries offer so many wonderful reads. You can find drama, romance, murder mystery … and the works of many of authors who are from the Great Lakes Bay Region, including Theodore Roethke (www.roethkehouse.org/). Grab a copy of a book of Roethke’s poetry and “see” the natural scenes around you as the vivid words paint a picture.
Or maybe you want to read a story set in the area. Books such as Donna Winters’ Elizabeth and the Saginaw Bay, part of the Great Lakes Romance series, incorporate a little history, engaging characters, and delightful plot lines with descriptive details about the Great Lakes Bay Region.
There’s no shortage of books on history, either, and a quick trip to the library or any of the book stores around the area can help you find many of them.
We’ll keep you posted on the top reads we come across throughout the year. Let us know what treasures you uncover on your next book adventure.
