When I was younger I was a voracious reader — we’re talking awkward kid with her nose in a book at all times. In recent years, this has not been the case. I start books and never finish them or buy them and never even crack the spine. When I do take time to read I feel guilty that I’m not doing something “productive” which is a completely backwards way of looking at it. Anyway, I’m putting an end to all that nonsense. In the next 12 weeks (now until the new year!) I intend to tackle at least 12 books. What I need are recommendations! What books have moved you recently? Made you laugh, made you cry? Empowered you, inspired you? I’m open to anything — classics, bestsellers, fiction, non-fiction. Can’t wait to hear your suggestions — my Neo-Trad readers are always my best resource!
