A charming look at the transformative power of reading. This is an evergreen book I will read again and again. It reminded me of so many of my own personal milestones and paradigm shifts that occurred between the pages of books. In addition, I'm looking forward to reading many of the books she read, as I've never heard of many. So a bonus is growing your TBR. Thoroughly enjoyable, simply engaging and very soul-fulfilling. Those that love books will recognize a kindred spirit in Ms. Hood. An instant classic!
