I think there is something magical for me in reading a book...I have an active imagination and books allow me to escape to all kinds of adventures without ever leaving home. I can go to different parts of the world, sit in on expensive teaching seminars and get to know fascinating characters without spending a dime. And the part of my brain that loves to dream gets indulged every time I sit with a book.
I also really love to learn....yes, thank you Dad for that quality! I'm fascinated by the "feeling" of learning. The way my brain seems to grow and breathe when I encounter new information and then it takes root and becomes understanding. I like the feeling of getting smarter.
I’m always looking for a good book to read. One that occasionally makes me laugh out loud. Tugs on my heartstrings, but not in a “Steel Magnolias” kind of way. One that makes me think deeply and maybe even question my opinion on a controversial topic. A story that engages me so much that when I look up from reading I’m confused why the characters are no longer sitting in the room with me. A story that for all intents and purposes could actually be happening in my life and world. Anyone have some good suggestions?
