On My Bookshelf

A place to curate what I love most - Books! The following list is a work-in-progress, always evolving, and it's a chance for me to share those stories that have taught me something, touched me, moved me or just flat-out entertained me (which is always what we want when we sit down to read a book, is it not?).
