If I am addicted to anything, I am addicted to books. Not only do books fill the built-in shelves of our home, but they also spill into baskets tucked beside recliners, and then onto the floor. I am certain I qualify for gold membership on my book swap. (The link is http://www.paperbackswap.com/index.php
but don't say I didn't warn you if you get hooked.)
And I'm not the only one. In fact, everybody at our house relishes reading. That being said, here are my top ten favorite children's writers, some old, some new.
If you think introverts can't make a difference, think again.
Susan Cain opens her book, Quiet, with an eye (and ear) opening example of the power of the introvert. Rosa Parks, a small framed, quiet lady in her 40's, fueled a movement with one word: No.
But Cain doesn't stop there. She goes on to list dozens of introverts that have changed history: Lincoln, Einstein, Gates; the list goes on and on.
The book is a bit academic and, consequently, hard for me to digest at times. Still, Cain's argument is valid and healthy for an extrovert like myself to consider.
