Favourite Books

These are my three top favourite books. They are my most favourite because they moved me… I literally cried at the end of the book or at some point while reading the book LOL… I cry… It’s me… Not afraid to admit it but it’s real. Fortunately, I also smile and laugh too 😉

  1. How Starbucks Saved My Life by Michael Gates Gill
  2. Death of a Salesman by Arthur Miller
  3. A Time To Kill by John Grisham

But, my most favourite book of all time… Reach by Laila Ali

Most of my favourite books are based on true stories. The only one that is not based on a true story, book #2. However, book #2, can be applied to all sorts of real life stories that individuals face today. Other books I recommend for reading:

  • The Glass Castle by Jeannette Walls
  • The Rez Sisters by Thomson Highway
  • Who Will Cry For The Little Boy? by Antwone Fisher This is a collection of poems, but once you know the story of the author… they become that much more powerful

Authors that I am going to look into this summer:

These two Authors are Aboriginal women, and I was told about them a few days ago after submitting an essay for Women’s Worlds 2011.

The ability to read and write is a great tool to over come anything in life. To read is to understand, to gain knowledge. To write is to convey your thoughts and ideas, to share your knowledge. That is why I love to encourage others to read and write, especially young people 🙂
