Gratitude and Great Books
I thought I would board the train of holiday gift ideas as a way to express gratitude for all the authors I've met, books I've read, and friendships I've deepened this year. Here is a short list of books that run from fiction to non fiction to poetry. They are favorites in terms of both words and the women behind the words. Definitely worth looking at.
