BOOKS, BOOKS AND MORE BOOKS

Life’s Little Splendors Favorite Reads

I work, eat, play, sleep, dream, and think books.  From a very early age, reading became my favorite thing in the world. 

This page is a list of some of the books that I’ve read and enjoyed over the years.  Books are my biggest passion, so I wanted to share a little piece of that happiness with all of my readers. 

I will keep updating it as I go along, so keep checking back for new reading ideas.
