I Love to Read

One of my favorite outings as a kid was to head to the library and come home with bags of books to read. I didn’t always read every single one, but I had them at my fingertips, and that was a glorious feeling. I have always loved books, and it’s what got me started on my journey as a used bookseller. I know for sure it’s why I also dreamed of being a writer.

Sometimes when we become adults our reading habits change, but hopefully that love will always remain. It has for me. Sure, there have been waning times, but one of my joys in life is holding a book in my hands and savoring its pages. On this page you’ll get a glimpse at any given time what I’m reading and what I think of it. Let’s talk books!

3.5 stars. I've been an entrepreneur my whole life. It's all I've known, and yet I gained some new insights from this book. Namely, to not be afraid to try new things. Just because my business worked when I first started it doesn't mean ...

I've been a fan of James Scott Bell for many, many years. This one mixes the grit of his Mike Romeo thrillers with the heart of some of his earlier works. I love that combo. The staccato plot keeps things moving quickly with some of the ...
