Love For Books

Here, I was 12 years old on a summer’s day at my grandparents’ house. Grandma took that photo through her kitchen window (I can smell the home cooking even now). I threw a big cushion off that swing to make things just right. For what? Reading, reading and more reading!


What was I reading? I can only guess one of L.M. Montgomery’s lovely tales of the early 20th century (Anne of Green Gables will never go out of style) or perhaps it was a Choose Your Own Adventure (I have a little collection even now). It might have been my Bible (a book with a great many incredible stories) or perhaps it was something from the library.

Wouldn’t it be fun to have a list of every single book you ever read?

I couldn’t get enough of reading then and I still can’t now. There’s simply nothing quite like a good story. Here’s wishing you many wonderful books on the list of all that you’ll read in your life. Enjoy each and every adventure!

  1. This is such a beautiful post, Michelle! It would be so fun to see everything I’ve read … every time I come across a random snippet from an old journal that mentions what I was reading at the time it’s such a treasure. I love the picture you included and the story about your grandparents 🙂 I can totally relate. Thank you for brightening my day! I’m looking forward to following your blog!


  2. I’ve been keeping track of everything I read on Goodreads for past couple of years. Good website for book lovers and nice to keep a running list of all the books I’ve read (in my adulthood at least) 🙂
