Exploring those mysterious, underlying forces fueling a writing life

What Books Can Do

As a teenager, I was awkward and shy.  And I thought I was the only one who ever felt that way.  It wasn’t until I read Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier that I realized I wasn’t the only person in the world who has ever felt insecure.  I knew I wasn’t alone.

WHAT BOOKS CAN DO:

  • Inspire
  • Entertain
  • Provide comfort
  • Change perceptions
  • Help us understand ourselves
  • Help us understand the world
  • Nourish our imaginations
  • Let us escape

WHAT YOU CAN DO:

  • Donate a book to a foster child through The BookTrain4Kids.   Change the course of a foster child’s life.  Your book donation will go directly into the hands of a child.   http://www.booktrainforkids.wordpress.com
  • Donate to Reading is Fundemental (RIF), the largest children’s literacy non-profit in the US.  They deliver free books and resources to children and families in need. http://www.rif.org

Let someone else know they are not alone – donate today.

  1. Michele,
    Putting books in the hands of children who don’t have any or many is a very worthwhile goal. I can tell that books had a big influence on you. Now, you write them.

    Like mother, like daughter. Rebecca was life changing for me as well and has always been one of my favorite books. I applaud your efforts

  3. Thanks, Michele! Yes, indeed. Books can accomplish great things–life changing. Thank again 🙂
