For those of us who read and write, books have a way of shaping our lives. As I look at my bookshelf, I realize my life is reflected in the books I have read. Examining one shelf, I see six months or a year or a lifetime of experiences. It's not only what's in the book that shapes the experience. I've found part of the book experience is where I've read it, and what I was doing at the time, and who with. When I pick up a book, I see friends, family, and situations.
