Reading is the Best Therapy

I have always loved reading. I find that reading lets me explore places I might want to travel, imagine cultures that I’d like to experience (or avoid in some cases) and generally expand my interests and knowledge.

I like most genres and find that I particularly like to read a wide variety of books by diverse authors, from gardening, cooking, travel, fiction, mysteries, self-improvement, business topics, etc. with the occasional “smutty romance” novel when I want entertainment without thinking too much.

Some favorites:

Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand
Christy by Catherine Marshall
Basic Black by Cathie Black
Outliers by Malcolm Gladwell
The entire Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling
I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings by Maya Angelou
Under the Tuscan Sun by Frances Mayes
