Vivien Jennings

Vivien's insatiable interest in reading started when she was a child.  She likes to read just about everything, and reads for enlightenment and entertainment.  She has a photographic memory, so she can read quickly, and with full comprehension and detail.  In a given Week, she will likely read a thriller, some history, a couple of works of fiction to recommend for Book Clubs, and usually something new on wellness.  She reads a lot about the alternative approach to wellness, because she likes to encourage people to be well in mind, body and spirit, and pro-actively care for themselves and others.  07052021
