I love books. I love reading and collecting them. The power of books can change a mindset, particularly when you find a book that seems like it was written just for you.

Books are essential for my on-going journey, and I hope we can discover great books that we should all be reading. Let me introduce you to my our first Scotch Parlor Library Contributor Kail Letkemann...
