Staff Reading Resolutions - Anita Charles, Children's Books Buyer

Ralph Waldo Emerson said, "Our high respect for a well-read person is praise enough for literature."

Anita Charles, the BYU Bookstore's expert in Children's Literature, as well as the primary contributor to Y-Read. She serves as a great example and advocate to children and adults to make reading a life-time habit. To set this example, she has made a goal to read many books from various genres this year.

Anita plans to read the following during 2012:
  • Heart of a Samurai by Margi Preus
  • Steve Jobs by Walter Isaacson
  • Blood Red Road by Moira Young
  • The Hare with Amber Eyes by Edmund de Waal
  • The Gift of Rest by Joseph Lieberman
  • Some Assembly Required by Anne Lamott
  • Flunking Sainthood by Jana Reiss
  • Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L’Engle  ("AGAIN to commemorate the 50th anniversary" - Anita)
  • Stuff by Terry Pratchett
  • Ghost Knight by Cornelia Funke
Anita continues to praise literature by seeking out new books and actively reading.

What books will you read this year?
