Re: Books!

OH MY GAWD! So many more books to add to my 'to-read' list! I think it might be time to actually use my library card. I joined at the beginning of the year (that was a long time coming) and still haven't used my card. Smiley Very Happy

Re: Books!

Don't you think it's incredible @Craycray17 that an author can have you so gripped on a story like the Catcher in the Rye which doesn't even seem to have a plot at all! 

 

Just had a quick search of the titles you've listed! they look very interesting! 

 

I'm currently on the inspiration path and reading biographies of people I look up to!

Re: Books!

I'm reading Adam Braun's story now - 'The Promise of a Pencil: How an ordinary person can make extraordinary change'. Adam is Justin Bieber's, managers  younger brother haha. It's a story about how his travels inspired him to start a non-profit organisation  targeting the availability of education to every young person across the world. Where you are born should not dictate whether you get an education or not. He has build over 200 schools with his organisation Smiley Happy 

 

Also have just recently reread Nelson Mandela "Long Walk to Freedom". He is someone I look up to very much!
