Book Drive


I'm a huge reader and find few things more satisfying than cozying up with a great book and losing myself in the story. For a long time I was only a lover of novels, but after discovering such memoirs as The Glass Castle and Beautiful Boy, I have become obsessed with this genre. The ability to write one's own story in a way that captivates the reader can be even more incredible than creating a story entirely. From memoirs, I have even started to dabble in a little historical non-fiction, a departure that I never expected to take. I've learned so much about myself as a reader over the past few years, not to mention the innumerable lessons I've collected from the books and authors themselves. Reading is the best escape and I appreciate nothing more than receiving recommendations from other book lovers. I recently finished all of my new books, and instead of heading to the library, store, or back to my own shelves, I turn to you. What is the latest and greatest book you've read?



  1. Currently reading Eating Animals. It's quite shock... but really great. Changing a lot about how I eat — and not just when it comes to meat!

    Pillars of the Earth is another recent favorite. And I also read A Visit from the Goon Squad which was fabulous!

  2. Just thought of this: I read The Imperfectionists earlier this summer. Still not sure how I felt about it but it's about journalists and it takes place in Rome - might be just enough to capture your interest.


I love to hear from you - thank you for your comments!
