Quant a miMy favorite book is always the one I just finished or the one I'm about to start. They have been my friends and comfort, and have opened doors I would never have known existed.

Through High School my report card reported my average status, totally C's every time. Teachers thought nothing of me, middle of the road student, didn't make trouble, awkward, very weird but not college material, not interested in learning.

I feel like I have been playing catch-up all my adult life. I have been in college almost 20 of the 28 years since High School, class after class I still feel like I'm behind everyone else. Only recently I understand why I feel this way, it is because I am not satisfied being that C student. I keep looking towards the A+ students, wondering what they are reading, why did they succeed? So there are always people ahead of me, when I catch up to those people then I look for the people even higher up, not realizing that I have been making progress all this time.

I have enjoyed organizing my home library here, it has been therapeutic and eye-opening. I can see where I have been and what remains to be done. This has taken me weeks to write all the reviews, and label all the books, but I think for me it is worth it.

Now at 45, now accepted into the History Master's program at SJSU. I now know I am not that C student anymore. I still have lots to learn, but I'm not that clueless kid, now I know where the doors are, and looking over my shoulder can see some of the doors I've already been through.

Quant a
la meva biblioteca
I'm amazed I have so few books. They are everywhere in my home even some shelves are double stacked. I have most of my books from childhood, and most of my father's books (Tagged Dad's Books). Dad was the big reader in our family, he loved westerns, nature and travel. Thinking about it now, Dad being the big reader never discussed books with me. With my sons I have done just the opposite, many of our best conversations begin with "what's happening in your book now?" I read to them as children and hold those books as precious memories still.
