My Reading Life"Whatever prize I brought out of the woods, my mother could match with a book from the library. She read so many books that she was famous among the librarians in every town she entered. Since she did not attend college, she looked to the librarians as her magic carpet into a serious intellectual life. Books contained powerful amulets that could lead to paths of certain wisdom." -- p 3, ARC of My Reading Life by Pat Conroy, (Release Date: November, 2, 2010)

This is a great teaser. I saw this book recently and was wondering about it. I'd definitely like to read it one of these days!

Enjoy!

The Power of Parents

Your teaser is a prime example of the powerful role parents play in the reading lives of their children. Conroy describes his mother's enjoyment of books in such a loving way. What a blessing for her to have a son who is a successful author!

I'm starting a beach read!! Can you believe it??!!

Conroy's Reading Life

What a great childhood he must have had! Just got an ARC of this one in the mail yesterday. Looks intriguing. It's always interesting to see what writers read.

Oh, I love books about books

Oh, I love books about books and reading! I'll have to go borrow My Reading Life from my library.

My teaser (for Lonely Werewolf Girl) is @ Stuff & Nonsense
