I was Embarrassed

I realized I was missing out on something.

My Experience in School

I never really experienced the joy of being, “Lost in a book”. Growing up, I had friends that would read for hours, and I was always jealous that I did not enjoy the hobby.

Change Didn’t Happen Immediately

To say I was intimidated by the small print and thickness of the spine was an understatement.

I Gave Grisham a Try

Because I read a lot, my life feels more complete and rich.

Where I am Today

No matter how busy you are, there is always a way to sneak in a few hours of reading.
