The Power of Reading

We believe reading can change the world. Reading empowers people, offering them empathy to live for a moment in someone else's shoes, offers them education, a critical asset to improving one's life, and offers an occasional escape to fantastic worlds inhabited by interesting characters. Yes, we save millions of books every year from being destroyed, but our mission goes beyond the environment. We save these books and make them accessible to readers for the chance to shape another mind, share another story, and teach a bit of wisdom.

I had been in an abusive relationship. Admitting it to myself had its own difficulties, not to mention opening up to my family and friends. Now I had the crazy idea of writing it all down and sharing it with the world. Well, I won’t get too carried away... It wasn’t the world, but all my friends on Facebook and anyone who happened to stumble across my online blog.

I've always loved the idea of place, but I haven't always known it.

I was born in the Seattle area. Then over the course of my young life, moved to Southern California, Dallas, Italy, Kazakhstan, China, Salt Lake, DC, Beijing, Houston, and finally, Seattle. While I understand there are many people who have lived and traveled a great deal more than me, I have done enough moving for myself that I have come to appreciate the idea of place.
