My Reading Life


Book #67 Read in 2013
My Reading Life by Pat Conroy

This non-fiction book tells the tale of the importance of literature and books and reading in Conroy's life, first in his childhood and then as an adult who is becoming a writer.  Conroy talks honestly about his abusive father, his mother who remained a mystery to him through adulthood and the connections he made over books and literature.  It seemed as if reading truly saved him at times.  Conroy details the books that he found especially meaningful; some are classics, some are not so mainstream, but all meant something to him.  This is a book for book lovers and also for Conroy fans; his writing style of his fiction carries over to this book.  I enjoyed it.
