I love to read, recommend books and open the world of reading to others. I tutor to ensure that the next generation of readers will know the joys of a good book because their reading skills have improved. I am an avid reader, especially of mysteries and fiction. I believe that two of the world's greatest inventions were the public library and eyeglasses!

  1. Surprisingly, I’ve only read one book on this list (The Silence of the Lambs), though I DNF quite a few (The Shining, Shutter Island, War of the Worlds, etc.) and others are on my TBR. Some of them I haven’t even heard of. I’ll have to look them up. Thanks for the book ideas!
