As a girl, every week I visited the library. My parents would drop me off and pick me up later. I’d come home loaded down with a stack of books that I would devour and chronicle in my book ledger.
Well, not much has changed! I still go to the library and bring home more books than I can read. In my twenties, I worked at a bookstore here in Denver where I got the best kind of graduate school education – real world lessons sprinkled through with bookish insights. I still love sharing books that matter to me.
Books have changed my world in so many ways. I can’t express the gratitude I feel for having access to this kind of learning and connection. I’m certain that I coach writers because of the power of books to make a difference in the world. My new book, The Busy Woman’s Guide to Writing a World-Changing Book, has gotten me thinking about the books that have changed my world.
While I’ve read many books by men, most of the books I read are written by women. I’ve always craved role models, gained a lot from the female perspective, and believe that we need more women’s voices in the world.
In my new book recommendation series, World-Changing Books by Women, I’ll be sharing books that have made a difference for me in my life. I’d love to hear about books that have changed your world, too.
Tune in every Friday to check out a book that’s changed my world.
