Avid reader: Relaxation and enjoyment before bed time

The Leader’s next avid reader says she still finds the time to wind down with a good book.

Slave Lake community member and Doula with Natural Strength Birth Doula, Pam Hahn says her preference for books are historical fiction, but she also enjoys some mystery series or cultural books.

“I can’t say I have a favourite book or author, but there are authors I seek to read depending on my mood.”

Lynn Austin, Bodie & Brock Thoene, Jeffery Deaver, Sue Grafton, James Herriot are a few of authors Hahn likes to read.

She says she has only ever given up on one book in her life and she went back and finished it regardless.

Hahn says she reads books for relaxation and enjoyment usually right before bed, so she stays away from reading “heavy” stuff.

Hahn mentions she will read about two books a month, maybe more if she has more time or is really enjoying the book.

Hanh explains she enjoys movies, T.V. shows, and books, but typically reads more than watching the screen.

“I love the feel of books. I’ve tried ebooks – can’t do it.”

Hanh says she has never tried audio books, although she has considered it for travelling, but usually becomes the ‘audio’ when travelling as she often reads aloud.
