Sharing The Joy of Reading

A good book is an event in my life. Stendhal, French writer

One of the my favorite pastimes is reading. Through the writing of the sixty-four authors I read in 2019, I had the pleasure of learning, traveling, empathizing, smiling, crying, and meeting new people. Here are a few of my favorite books. 

Great fiction for book clubs: Where the Crawdads Sing, The Winter Soldier, Educated, The Tattooist of Auschwitz, The Book Woman of Troublesome Creek

Outstanding non-fiction: Becoming – Michele Obama, The Moment of Lift – Melinda Gates, The Education of an Idealist – Samantha Power

Newbury Award winning book for youth – A Book About a Boy

More fiction: The Sound of Glass, The Lost Girls of Paris, City Girls, Woman In Cabin 10, The Truth According to Us, The Last Mrs. Parrish

Affirmation: Books open up the world to me.

Coaching  request: If you’re not a reader, I challenge you to read a book just for fun this month. Let me know how it goes.

      1. Absolutely, it would be my pleasure to review your book. I have read some of your blogs and I love them.

        No, I haven’t seen the Netflix yet. When Breadth becomes Air is another favorite of mine.
