About

photoIt all started with Treasure Island in the third grade. My class was in the library (a place that I dreaded at the time) and we were, of course, being forced to pick out a book. Well, let me tell you, I felt the pressure. My mother is a big reader (as in reads hundreds upon hundreds of books) and wanted me to come to love reading like she did but alas the connection was never made. That is, until a treasure hunting, pirate roaring book fell into my hands. (Not literally.) It was within those pages that I fell in love with reading. From that day on my mother didn’t have to pester me with reading (instead it was “you should clean your room” or “you should empty the dishwasher”) and I found an escape from reality. Reading really is one of the most wonderful ways to spend your time and I am making it my mission to find out which of the books will fly you away or fall flat, so that you too can learn to love reading; first recommendation is Treasure Island (especially if you like parrots).

    • Wow, I’m so honored that my blog is even read let alone that someone would enjoy it enough to nominate me for an award! Thank you so much, I really appreciate it and congrats yourself!!!

  1. Hello Lindsey!

    Very nice to meet your acquaintance. You know, I have yet to read Treasure Island. It’s one of those books perpetually on my “to read” list, but somehow always manages to be shuffled to the bottom of the queue. I should probably just do it already. 🙂

    Best,

  2. One of my favorite books was ‘The Pirate Hunter – the true story of Captain Kidd’ by Richard Zacks. I also enjoy biographies about people I find interesting. Unfortunately I don’t get very much time to read, but I have rarely found a book I couldn’t be bothered to finish – no matter how long it takes 😉

    • I have yet to hear of The Pirate Hunter but it sounds interesting so I’ll have to check it out!

      I have this compulsion to finish everything I read even if it’s a novel I hate. (And this rule often extends to series). Thanks for stopping by 🙂
