I try to block at least thirty minutes a day to escape into a good book. But, sometimes life happens and reading loses rank on my list of to-do’s. Before I know it, I’ve lost my reading mojo. During these moments of literary lax, I often receive a book in the mail from my friend, Kim. She reads ten times more books than the average hustling Mom. When her books arrive, my psyche whispers, “G’head, drop everything and read a while.” So, in honor of my generous book-loving friend, Kim, I’m paying it forward with a curated list of my favorite books.

My Favorite Books
To those who when small read by flashlight… And those who create pictures in the clouds… To those who feel most alive in imagination… Carry on brilliant souls, carry on.
Did you know reading is scientifically proven to be one of the best ways to reduce stress? It lowers blood pressure and prevents cognitive decline. I’m thinking the key to good livin’ is limiting our scrolls and expanding our libraries. You in? –xo
