“One child, one teacher, one book, one pen can change the world.”
I love reading. That being said, I am often asked: “What are you reading this week?”, which I will partially answer by logging my “Book of the Week” choice in this post, which will be frequently updated throughout the year 2016. I should mention that I had read some of these several times, because they are totally worth it!
The stories behind how I found/was recommended each book are far more interesting, but let’s save them for another day, shall we?
