Books... books... books!

If you know me at all... then you know that I'm an avid reader. I have a bookshelf stocked full of some of my favorite books. I never throw away or give away my books... they are a GREAT joy in my life! I love diving into a story and being able to "live" someone else's life... even for just a minute. A great romance, an epic journey... becoming a fictional character. It's grand! Well, I hope to instill that same passion for reading in my children and would love to stock an entire library of books for them as they grow, starting with Elah ofcourse!

A wonderful list. Very different--for the most part--from the ones I selected See My List Here but a really delightful list nevertheless.
PS Hang in there school will be over someday and it will have been worth it.
