bookshelf

I’ve always loved to read. I learned how at home around the age of 5 or 6 and haven’t stopped since. Therefore, I’ve never really been able to pick just one favorite book! Or even a favorite author! I DO have favorites tho, and rather than try and keep a page on what I’m currently reading, I’ve simply compiled them here. I’ll update it if I read anything new that makes the grade or remember one that I left off during my first run through. 🙂 So if you are looking for something to read, here’s a completely subjective and biased list of recommendations!
