I encourage any retired person to spend some time in their local library and see everything that is offered there. It’s a great place to get out and meet new people. Read a different newspaper than the one you usually do. Get a new political perspective. Check out a cookbook and try a new recipe. Read a book of poems to your spouse and see what happens. If your library doesn’t have a book club start one choose a subject, mysteries or romance and start reading, and then ask questions about the writers plot, or the characters believability.
