a Fall Reading List: Warm Up from the Inside Out



William Nicholson wrote, "We read to know we're not alone."  Whether we're living the stories of imaginary character created in the mind of the author or whether we are sharing emotions and past experiences of the author's own life, the books we love the best are those whose words tear down the walls we put around our life and tie us to a time, a place, a thought, a dream.  These are the stories we come back to time and time again.  They bring comfort to the broken places in our lives.  They bring friendship to our loneliness.

Somehow, these words we use to make stories bring connectedness.  We finally realize we're not alone.  The grief we feel from loss is normal.  The loneliness we feel happens to other people.  The insecurities we live with remind us that we're all human.  The joy we feel is normal too.  The joy comes from the lessons we learned in the stories--ours and theirs.

Here's a look at what I'm reading this fall and where you can take them home with you.
