A confession. (Glances around furtively...) I didn't know what to write about today. I went to Pinterest and typed in "Blogging Prompts" to get me started.
And there, on a graphic for March 22nd, was a topic I think we can all related to. (See title.)
Michelle blogged here on what books have changed her. That was inspired by a Nerdy Book Club link written this weekend.
So without further delay, here's a list from me. A little bit of Reading Touchstone inspiration and a little bit of straight up Sassy Girl's opinion on books that have stayed with me. (And a nudge from Pinterest this morning...just keeping it real folks.)
I love the patience in this story. Friendship takes patience doesn't it? I also love seeing the imagination that comes out in kids after they hear this story.
The Midwestern Girl in me couldn't stop thinking about this book. It's a book that I have a copy of, but I won't share it with you. I'll recommend you get your own. In only the way a girl from Omaha can do, Rainbow Rowell nailed this Midwestern story. I could visualize my Grandma's neighborhood as I read it, and the interstate system through Des Moines.
I mean, it's so hopeful and funny. I do have several copies of this one too. My heart sang when I realized my 11 year old snatched one of my copies to keep in his collection.
In my next life, I'm a chef. Who writes a lot. And teaches first grade. Hamilton makes me believe that this could be possible with the right amount of grit.
This is an unintended read for me. But the more I read it, the more I really like it, and may have to get a copy to pass around. It's just so honest.
So, there we have it. A list of 5 books I think everyone should read.
What's on your list?
Have a good Tuesday!
