 Important Moment in Your Reading Life

Christie:  Learning of injustice in the world when Tom Robinson was

killed in To Kill A Mockingbird. I was 10.

Her books are what made me fall in love with reading and wanting to become a writer.

Quote That Inspires You 

Christie:

“It is what you read when you don’t have to that determines what

you will be when you can’t help it.”

-Oscar Wilde

Heather

“There comes a time when the world gets quiet and the only thing left is your own heart.

So you’d better learn the sound of it. Otherwise you’ll never understand what it’s saying.”

-Sarah Dessen

 

Reading Regret

 Christie: Dear John by Nicholas Sparks. “I read it around the time I was getting divorced and

my romantic cynicism at the time completely tainted it! Sorry Nicolas Sparks!”

Heather: I don’t really have a regret about reading a particular book, but I do regret waiting so long

to read some of the classics. They are something that I think everyone should read at least once.

      Sarah Dessen books are just something special, especially to me. Her books are what really started me on my book obsession kick!
      Loved this post! It was a lot of fun to do and reminded me of the days I spent hours doing Myspace surveys. As for TID…I don’t think I’ll ever really recover from that book. Ah, so good!
