About Me

"You can learn more in an hour of silence than in a year from books" - Matthew Kelly
A priest once told me to go to the library and read a book, then write about it. Nobody said it the way he did and I was perplexed because even when it was good advice, it felt like I had to do it for penance. Admittedly, I did need something to do with my time but I never thought I'd be writing book reports but it made so much sense! I am grateful for having something to do and that I finally listened. I enjoy the written word.

What I didn't know was, countless blogs are writing book reviews. Better late than never, Jackie's Bookbytes is the result of taking a priest's advice to 'READ A BOOK' and to write about it. It's not as easy as it sounds.
