This is my bookshelf. Every book here is a book that I have read, are reading, or plan to read.
The practice of reading was instilled into me when I was little. My mother would read to us daily stories and once I was in school I had wonderful teachers that pushed us to get lost in books. I remember getting my hands on The Baby-Sitters Club series and finishing it in a couple of weeks. I also loved reading Goosebumps. As I got older, I turned to reading to understand life better and learn how others have dealt with their own fears and life questions. I take solace in the words of writers and reading has made me a stronger writer.
Every book I have read has influenced my way of thinking and taught me something new.
If you have a book that has changed your life let me know. I would love to read it.
