Library {Books}

“I declare after all, there is no enjoyment like reading.”

– Jane Austen

A woman who wrote well beyond her decade. And left lessons for a lifetime. Seriously, if you haven’t read Pride and Prejudice you need to. Now.

My love for reading started at an early age with frequent trips to the library during the summer with one of my best-friends and her family. As an adult, I always have 3 books by my bedside to keep me company.

On my shelves:

  • Pride and Prejudice
  • Water for Elephants
  • Little Women
  • A Tree Grows in Brooklyn
  • Personal History
  • A Lady First
  • The Last Lecture
  • To Kill a Mockingbird
  • My Sisters Keeper
  • Emma
  • A Little Princess 
  • Eat, Pray, Love
  • DSM IV – TR (a must for any clinical social worker)
On my nightstand:
  • Mrs. Jack – The story of Isabella Stewart Gardner. The eccentric woman behind the love affair with art. She spent her life expertly collecting art from around the world – and building a home museum to house it.
  • Motivational Interviewing – Therapy technique used to help encourage behavior change – particularly substance abuse patients. Hoping it helps me improve my skills at the hospital this year. I’ve already put it to use – with interesting, but not necessarily great responses.
