I have always loved to read. I can't imagine my life without books. I don't leave home for even a weekend without at least 3 books with me because I am afraid of running out of reading material. I will have plenty of time to read on the trains; my only problem is that I am traveling light and can only take so many with me. I plan to read and discard/trade books as I go. Luckily, I am sure there will be plenty of bookstores wherever I stay. I am posting a list of most of the books that I have read in the past 2 years. If you have any questions about them or want to give or receive suggestions, feel free to write me an email at emeryvilleamy@gmail.com
