Wednesday Wishlist: Written Words

I LOVE a good read.  Curling up with a good book is like therapy for me.  Whether it's fiction or non, mystery, self-help, or history, the written word is almighty indeed.  I always had trouble with comprehension when I was in school, so I would read and re-read a book until I could grasp its meaning, and I've been hooked on books ever since.  Have a look at these fine literary gems I found while surfing the net.
