Two Reasons To Cut Down On Watching TV

Guilty Minds

by Joseph Finder




 -Time to Veg Out -


Do you occasionally find yourself watching TV because getting up feels like too much effort? And most of the time it's not even a program you care about.

Recently my husband was out of town for six days. I realized once again that I watch TV as more of a social activity, and that's for a short period of time.  So while my husband was out of town I only turned on the TV while I was eating. It's not that I don't like TV, but I'd rather listen to an audiobook, read a book, or be on the computer.

It's obvious that we all choose different methods to relax.

But as the headline states, here are two good reasons to find the energy to turn off the TV especially if it's a program you don't really care about.

  • Reason #1 

More Time For Reading or Listening To Books

If you don't find a certain book interesting, put it down and pick up another one. There's no law saying you have to finish a book just because you've started it, although I know some people feel like there must be such a law (my mom being one of them). And if you don't like reading, try an audiobook. I do that all the time while I'm cooking or cleaning. Believe it or not, a book can make all chores a little more fun.

  • Reason #2

More Time To Read To Kids And Grandkids

I don't know many kids who don't love having a book read to them. If you're looking for lots of reviews that can help you locate just the right picture book, look no further. On this site, you will see mostly newer picture book reviews..

Bonding with children through reading can be extremely rewarding.


I'm just beginning to regularly review middle grade and adult books, check the heading above.

Now, here's my newest Adult book review. I hope it tempts you enough to shut off the TV, grab a cup of tea or coffee and R-E-L-A-X with a good book.

 

Guilty Minds

by Joseph Finder 


Synopsis:

Nick Heller, an investigator, is hired by top-notch attorney Gideon Parnell to clear his friend Chief Justice Jeremiah Claflin from a false report that Slander Sheet, a gossip website, is about to post. They are threatening to print a story that will report that Claflin spent three nights with a call girl. Gideon Parnell, the attorney, tells Nick he has 48 hours to discredit the story before it’s put up on Slander Sheet's website.

The story is fast-paced and looks like Nick will have his case solved in no time. But when he discovers problems with the call girl’s story, then later she's found dead, the case becomes more than what he originally thought.

This book is the third in a series. Nick Heller, a former Special Forces operative in Iraq brings more to being an investigator than many books.

What Concerned Me: None

What I Liked Most: This is the first book I’ve read in this series. The story begins quickly and maintains a good rhythm throughout. There are twists and turns, but never too many to keep track of. I definitely plan on reading more books by this author.
