Reading Room

I am an avid reader. Lately, I haven't had too much time to read for pleasure, but I usually have my nose stuck in a book at some point every night. Reading is a gift that gives me a chance to immerse myself in the lives of others, and escape to other places, even other worlds. Biography, Science-Fiction, Horror, History, Reference, Textbook. The category doesn't really matter. If a book catches my interest, I will read it. There are several books in my collection that I return to over and over. I never tire of reading them. Each of those books are broken down into categories and listed below. If you find something that appeals to you, I have provided a link so that you may purchase it from
