Avid reader Wilma Doane is warming up to Kindle but still finding hardback bargain books

Wilma Doane, a resident of Ridgefield, WA is an avid book lover. She reads two to three books a week and makes a point to indulge in “cheap entertainment,” buying a hardback book when it includes an event with the author.

Last year, she received a Kindle for Christmas. She hasn’t is slowly warming up to the concept of electronic books. She says that it’s not “easy to share books in the same way it is when you can hand off a paperbook or a hardback.” She also laments the difficulty of knowing how close you are to the end of a good book. But she laughs at her transition between the paper and electronic world.

“When I first started using it (the Kindle), I found myself getting my hand ready to turn the page.”

After reading all those books, Doane noticed a trend in authors that she appreciates, combining research of current events to create suspense novels. One of her recent favorites underscored the unsupervised, yet federally funded, wind farms in Wyoming.

“The mystery was woven around all this very relevant, current information, which makes those kind of books interesting to read, besides the mystery [and] wondering what will happen at the end.”

Doane wouldn’t call herself a writer, but during her career as an escrow officer in the title insurance industry she had plenty of opportunity to write. Her development of the company’s first escrow manual became an important training resource.

“When I worked, a lot of my writing was technical writing – writing something so somebody else could understand about something.”

Outside of work, her writing was more inward focused. “When you have something that’s troubling you, if you can write it out, it’s very therapeutic.”

While Doane says she never thought about writing a book, she did compile a spiral-bound notebook of her life’s journey and shared her memoir with family members as a holiday present.

Today, Wilma Doane is retired and loves the freedom of not having deadlines, she says, “Except the ones I create for myself.”
