I love reading. If there’s a movie version and book version of something, I’ll opt for the book. The book is always better.

My favorite book is Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand. She’s my favorite author.

There’s a used book shop near where I live called Dimple Books. Robert and I decided to get books for me there and buy them instead of renting them at a library so that our kids can have a lot of good books to read in the future. The first book I got there was

Anthem and Atlas Shrugged are both are in my top 5 favorite books. She’s an amazing writer, her plots are always exciting, and her characters are well-rounded and vivid.

Then I read The Lovely Bones which Robert surprised me with because I told him that using the Kindle Paperwhite made me miss reading from real books. I didn’t care for that book too much. Not enough dialogue, and the plot moved too slowly- like The Grapes of Wrath.

I’m reading her other famous book The Fountainhead right now and it is not disappointing. She is one of the few authors that write in a way that makes me never want to put the book down.


After I read this, It’ll probably be in my top 5 too. Other great books I really like are The Brothers Karamazov and Crime and Punishment, both by Fyodor Dostoevsky (my other favorite author).
