Reading with Grandpa

I know I’ve already said this, but again, I have always loved books. ┬áI grew up reading, and I have always asked for books for Christmas and my birthday. I thought it would only be appropriate to share a couple photos of me reading books when I was younger.

This first photo is from preschool.

These next two are of me reading with my grandpa. Growing up, my family would vacation in Arizona during the summer. While we were there, Grandpa and I would read together. He helped me learn how to read.

Grandpa was a good man, and he always helped others. He passed away a little over a year ago. Although he is missed, I know that he will always be in my heart.

Welcome! May I have your attention, please?

Welcome to my new book blog! I am so excited to be starting this blog. It has been something I have wanted to do for a while now, and I am thrilled that I have finally found the time to begin this adventure. I want to start by sharing my goals of this blog with you.

Goal #1: to share my love of books with others

Goal #2: to connect with other people who love books and develop friendships with them

Goal #3: to have a place to share my thoughts on what I’m reading and life

I am still figuring things out here, so bear with me as I learn my way around. I am in the process of setting things up and getting acquainted with the blogging world. I am open to your thoughts and any suggestions on starting my blog and books you think I should read. You can find my contact information here.

With that, on this day, December 28, 2012, I officially start this blog and anticipate the adventure that is to begin.
Please, stay a while. Go on the adventure with me. I enjoy your company.

Sincerely,
Cassie

P.S. Can you guess the musical that my post title is from?
