wednesday library update

I love reading. and i find that i don't really do enough of it anymore. my love affair with books started at an early age. i remember being very young and begging my mother to read books to me until i fell asleep. as early as i can remember i wanted to read and write. i didn't really care about cartoons or hanging out in the school yard. i was the girl on the bleachers with her nose stuck in a book. my football player boyfriend in high school was definitely annoyed by this. but it didn't matter to me what other people thought. i just loved getting lost in the story. i know you all remember the scholastic book magazines your teachers handed out in grade school. i always had the highest order.

So i have complied a list of books that changed my life. and added a few that i look forward to reading... it is summer after all. and I'm looking forward to many love affairs.
