"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. It was a great suggestion because I had a lot of time on my hands. I wasn't into reading much up until that point in my life.
I remember enjoying comics as a child, but I wasn't a big reader of books, at least not for the pleasure. Growing up I probably read a handful of five? One such book was Helter Skelter in the summer of 1977. It scared the bejeebers out of me. I also read The Betsy, but I can't remember what that was about.

As many of you know, there're countless bloggers writing book reviews today. Jackie's Bookbytes is the result of taking some quick advice and making it the purpose of my blog.
