Bestselling author Pat Conroy acknowledges the books that have shaped him and celebrates the profound effect reading has had on his life.
Pat Conroy, the beloved American storyteller, is also a vora-cious reader. He has for years kept a notebook in which he notes words or phrases, just from a love of language. But read-ing for him is not simply a pleasure to be enjoyed in off-hours or a source of inspiration for his own writing. It would hardly be an exaggeration to claim that reading has saved his life, and if not his life then surely his sanity.
In "My Life in Books," Conroy revisits a life of passionate reading. He includes wonderful anecdotes from his school days, mov-ing accounts of how reading pulled him through dark times, and even lists of books that particularly influenced him at vari-ous stages of his life, including grammar school, high school, and college. Readers will be enchanted with his ruminations on reading and books, and want to own and share this perfect gift book for the holidays. And, come graduation time, "My Life in Books "will establish itself as a perennial favorite, as did Dr. Seuss's "Oh, the Places You'll Go "
