Thank you for reading my blog and sending me book recommendations! I love hearing about what you read, what you like, and what you don't like. I hope I've steered you toward some good books. I know we're all different though so what I like may not be what you like, but I thank you for reading along with me and letting me know your thoughts!
In honor of this 800th post, I am re-posting my very first post to remind myself why I started this blog. Everything I wrote is still true. Although, I think I would change "I like to read" to "I LOVE to read." :)
From April 25, 2007:
I like to read. I wonder if you knew that.
I read paperback books because they don't hurt as much if I roll over them in bed.
I read because it makes me feel more connected to who I am. I like taking in new stories, new information, and new ways of thinking about life. I enjoy having a parallel story sitting in my head while I go about my day. I like reading something that changes how I look at myself and the world around me.
The purpose of this blog is to keep track of the books I have read and my thoughts on them. This blog will not be retroactive. Books described here are books that I have just finished. So welcome to my bookshelf. Enjoy.
