Who I Am

13239407_10206176170112432_8858667963018280506_nHi,  My name is Lori and I am a bibliophile.

I can think of worse things in this world to be addicted to…drugs…money….sex….beer….wine….wait, I like wine…but I love books.  Books to me are like an out-of-body experience.

My obsession with books goes hand in hand with my obsession of writing. “All writers must be well read” said a professor during a class on Hemingway. I agree that is true but the question is what makes a person well read? There is great debate over that one. Read the classics that interest you and then read some that don’t. Read what you like and what others say you might like. If you can’t read through the first couple of chapters without your mind wandering to other things in your life or if you dread having to finish it, then put it down or throw it out the front door.

I know how busy life gets. Thank you for reading my words and sharing this journey with me.

Lori O’Gara
