I am deeply fascinated by the choices on the Great American Read list. Some of my favorite books are listed. There are books on this list that I genuinely believe to be among the greatest novels of all time. Books that hold a deep personal relevance for me. Books that I've never read. And a few that I never thought I would! As I read through the list, I knew I would want to challenge myself this summer to conquer a few of my personal unread books.
Sometimes life gets a little too busy to sit down and read a book. Whether it’s family, work, or chores, it’s hard to find even just those few precious minutes. I love stories though. They have been a part of me since I was a little girl. Even my dreams have always been filled with plots and suspense. And if I don’t have at least a few moments to enjoy a good story, I can feel a little stressed. So I turned to audiobooks. The wonderful thing about them, is you can keep working, cleaning, driving, and doing whatever it is you need to get done, and still enjoy a good story.
