Making Dreams Into Reality

Want to know a secret? I haven't always loved reading...

Being the daughter of a librarian meant that I spent most of my high school career in the library, but I enjoyed putting books away and the idea of books. I didn't find my passion for reading until my senior year when I met my future husband. Since then I haven't been able to stop reading. Each year I seem to fall more in love with books.

My 2017 Reading Challenge was to read 50 books. This morning I woke up and realized I still had 4 books before I met my goal for the year! The first thing that came to mind was to find 4 picture books I hadn't added to my Goodreads account yet.

I got to finish my Reading Challenge for the year with my mom's Library Skills series. I can still remember my mom reading The Kissing Hand, Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs, and Goodnight Moon to me over and over again. It has been inspiring to see her make her dream of writing children's books a reality in 2017.

What was your proudest moment of 2017?

Happy New Year!
