My book club is reading The Book that Matters Most for our meeting in May. Hood talks about how books changed her life and her perceptions. She talks about finding the right book at the right time as well as people who gave her direction.
I loved her insights and could see some of my own similarities in her stories.

A book for bookish people. Author Ann Hood writes about different books that have had an impact on her throughout her life. I enjoyed her insight to the connections these books made to various stages of her life.
