Book Beginnings: The Heroine's Bookshelf

Book Beginnings on Friday is a meme hosted by Gilion at Rose City Reader. Anyone can participate; just share the opening sentence of your current read, making sure that you include the title and author so others know what you're reading.


The Heroine's Bookshelf: Life Lessons, from Jane Austen to Laura Ingalls Wilder by Erin Blakemore

"In times of struggle, there are as many reasons not to read as there are to breathe."

Sadly, I too know a lot of people with this mentality. But I agree completely with the author who comes back around to pointing out how helping books are during the bad times.
