Twenty-five Books

My mother instilled in me a love of reading. I essentially grew up in public libraries. The world of books is incredible. For a little while, you can escape to a new world, in a new life, with new problems and experiences. Reading is not just for children or students; adults should remember what it is to lose yourself in a book. There is a certain, undeniable power to storytelling.

In a previous post I mentioned a list of books I wanted to read. Here they are! I plan on writing my own little review after I finish each book.
