Discovering your niche in life can sometimes be difficult, but these Mason residents have discovered what makes their life worth living.
Thirty-eight year Mason resident Annie Lambrecht said her passion is reading, and she has loved it ever since she was a little girl. Lambrecht’s mother was a teacher and instilled the love of reading in her heart very early on.
“I even remember my first hard cover books were “Swiss Family Robinson“ and “Robinson Crusoe” said Lambrecht,who is 70. “I’ve been reading ever since I could remember.”
Lambrecht said her favorite is genre is fiction, although she always makes an effort to try something new. Her entire book club has tried to be open minded to other genres, but it never seems to work out.
“We’re trying to expand our horizons and try reading non-fiction stories, but we’ve discovered we do not like it,” Lambrecht said. “It’s very dry, and I don’t understand why.”
“Secret Life of Bees” by Sue Monk Kidd and “Pillars of the Earth” by Ken Follett are among Lambrecht’s favorite books.
“In ‘Pillars of the Earth’, it feels like you are there in medieval England,” Lambrecht said. “You can smell it, you can taste it, it is wonderful and beautifully written.”
