I love books. Not just reading, but actually the books themselves. I buy books everywhere and keep them forever…even my grandmother’s 1953 Encyclopedia Brittanica collection. Growing up we had 2 massive bookshelves in our family room and my mom was an avid reader. As a teenager I preferred laying on the rug under the piano reading to being outside with friends (I was a bit of a late bloomer). So in my house we build bookshelves. When I’m starting a project my first stop is always a book. When I need to relax, I find a book. When I’m making dinner, I’ve got a book on the counter. When I’m standing in line, I’m reading a book. There aren’t enough bookshelves so books are stacked on tables, on top of other books, littering my desk. Steve laughs because I can read anywhere, even in the middle of my family’s chaos. And I’m always bringing more books into our not so huge house.
For those of you who are also readers, ‘good reads’ is a place for me to share books I’ve read and loved. Check back to see what’s on my bedside table. And let me know if you read something amazing so that I can read it too.
