My Winter Reading List

Last year I wanted to embrace my love of reading again. When I was a little girl I used to read a lot. On Saturday afternoons my cousin and I would walk to our local library and check out books. When I started college I did not read as many books for fun anymore.

Towards the end of the summer I started going to my local library and read more. Not that long ago I was reading Elkement’s blog and she shared her reading list. This gave me the push to share mine too. Thanks for the idea.

  • My Brief History by Stephen Hawking
