Hello, my name is Laura and I've been in every kind of reading stump I can think of: not enough time, too tired, and simply disinterested. I hated being in those ruts because I grew up with books. My mom read to me and made every single family member that walked into our house read to me as well. Books are a very important part of my life and being deprived of them leaves me with an empty feeling. So I MAKE the time to read because I don't believe in work without reward. Mine just so happens to be reading.
I have a lot of ideas mapped out for this blog and if you follow me we can come up with even more ideas. This is something you should know, I love receiving book suggestions. I don't stick to one author or one genre because to me the purpose of books is to open your mind to all of the possibilities. What's life without variety? I also try to go to my local bookstore and library at least once a month with a list of books that I want to read. It's never a dull moment when I go into a book frenzy.
So join me and learn to love reading again. I'm very excited to do my first review and recommendation. And who knows? Maybe you'll be inspired to start your own blog as well. I hope you do because There is a sundry of books that need to be shared with everyone. So send me suggestions of any author and any genre. My promise is to read them and read them all. So without further ado, welcome to my blog!
P.S. - Here are some recommendations to start you off.
- The Sparrow by Mary Doria Russell
- We the Living by Ayn Rand (one of my favorite books EVER)
- The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams
- A Short History of Nearly Everything by Bill Bryson
- The History of Love by Nicole Krauss
P.P.S.- I would love to hear feedback on these books if anyone has or will read them.
