Blagica  | 12013 comments A book is a dream that you hold in your hand. I hope that April brings you many more five star reads. Do you have a stand out book so far this year?

Kszr | 19 comments Great quote! I have been so lucky to have had great recommendations. I will try not to give too much away, but by far the best to date are:
Beartown: Resonated because of my 15 year old daughter and what she faces every time she goes out.
The Rent Collector: a view into a different life, which I can't comprehend, but see the hope in how they live.
A Fall of Marigolds: a reminder of all those lost, including ones I knew, and a reminder of how the survivors exist. Especially as we plan to watch our friends run the Boston Marathon, still hoping to get back to a new normal.
The Hate U Give was a well timed read with the latest shooting and protests in Sacramento. Having grown up in Detroit, I know the scars that riots leave on neighborhoods. The complexity of the issues were dealt with very well.

Each of these has given me new ways to think about what is happening in the world today, and providing me a new lens on how to see it. That is why I love to read.

Kszr | 19 comments Thanks. Feel like things are slowing down, reading wise, but I have been busy with distractions like work.

Kszr | 19 comments another month in the books (hahahah)

Doing great with the reading - up to 40 books already! Looking forward to a summer of reading. By joining this challenge, as well as the PBT Decathon, I am rekindling my love of books and started a reading blog.
