I'll admit it. Most of the time, I'm a self-proclaimed comfort zone reader. You know, reading what I know I'll like. Reading my favorite authors. Reading what makes me feel comfortable- not unlike my favorite sweat pants that I've had since tapering was in. Not that there's anything wrong with that (if I do say so myself). But I do think it's important to venture outside of one's comfort zone. To try new things. To challenge one's self. And this is why I'm making a goal to read outside the box. And here are the books that are going to help me do it.
I Am Scout by Charles J. Shields. My daughter's name is Harper (not named after Harper Lee) so I was given this biography of Harper Lee as a gift. Although I'm a huge biography fan, I find that because I gravitate toward my "comfortable books" my many biographies end up taking up more bookshelf space than anything else. This book has been on my TBR list for quite some time (my daughter is nine-months-old after all!) so you are my witness that I'm vowing to move it right up to the top.
And I might as well re-read To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee while I'm at it!
