Mother’s Day

Mom and IMother’s Day is coming up and my first thought for a present for my mom is a book. I learned to love reading and books from my mom. I remember her reading to my brother and I when we were young, and as we got older, she always encouraged us to read our own books of our own interests. When she had free time, I remember her always reading about something different and interesting. Even though my tastes have evolved, I am sure that the exposure from the books she chose were the foundations of what I liked to read. Her choices of literature must have defined my preferences now.  She constantly challenged my interests and always suggested that I try a different topic, different author, different genre. And for that, I owe her my whole reading life!

Here are some suggestions of books not just for my mom, but maybe your mom as well. Whatever you choose, Happy Mother’s Day to you and your family.
