Think Piece

Currently reading: Murder on the Links — Agatha Christie

I love reading. It is one of my favorite things to do. It lets me give my imagination a work out and prompts me to think about all of those really important things that make up life. So, without further ado, I would like to compile a list of some of my favorite books and books that have given me pause for thought. Pick one that you would like to read, too!
