Book Boosters are those who place reading right up there with breathing. Yup, for some, reading and breathing is pretty essential Letizia is definitely a Book Booster because she reads , reads, reads. Pop onto her “About Me” page and this is what you’ll find:
I read in cafes, in my garden, in buses, in airplanes, at the kitchen table, at work, in parks, in bed, in the tub, in the doctor’s waiting room, in hotel lobbies, in trains, in restaurants, waiting for the electrician, during a snowstorm, and when I can’t sleep. I still haven’t mastered the art of walking and reading without looking up from my book, but I hope to one day.

Her posts are thoughtful and thought-provoking. Take for instance her post on last sentences. In a playful interactive manner she encourages her readers to grab their fave novel and look up the last sentence and reflect upon it. I pulled out my beloved To Kill a Mockingbird, the 1960 issue with the nondescript green tree branch on brown background cover (talk about don’t judge a book by its cover). Letizia’s little exercise reminded me why I adore Harper Lee’s novel and why it is so enduring. This is why I follow her. And I hope you will too.
As a blogger, I always appreciate responses to my own posts, and Letizia faithfully adds her comments. We all appreciate comments, don’t we?
Thanks, Letizia for your Book Boostering, comments, and worthwhile posting.
