Hi, I’m Katie!

Post by KaitlynW01 » 11 Jun 2019, 21:17

Hello, I’m Katie. For as long as I can remember, I’be been writing and reading. When I was ten, Amazing Kids Magazine published my writing, a short fable about working for what you have instead of taking from others. To this day, I still write sci-fi, fiction, non-fiction, and some historical fiction. But my favorite is reading, of course! Books are such a great way to escape reality. When I was a young girl I would snuggle up with a Twilight novel while my mom was getting chemo. When I was older I would read The Help when I was being bullied. It’s always fascinated me, how books can both detach and bring us back to the real world. I hope to bring something to the table at Online Book Club!

This thread is the best place to start. :reading-4:
Sometimes you need to take peoples' minds off their problems if you want those problems to resolve themselves.
...Not all problems can be fixed. Sometimes you have to wait until the situation changes.

In the case of good books, the point is not to see how many of them you can get through, but rather how many can get through to you." (Mortimer J. Adler)
