What book(s) have you read within the past five years that's changed your life?

I think all the books we read change our lives, even if it is only incrementally. That said, I don't think I've described any book as life changing in a long time. If I had to pick a few that stand out in the past five years though... Three Weeks in December, by Audrey Schulman. Her protagonist is an adult woman with Asperger syndrome. I've never found myself empathizing so completely with a character so different from me. The Black Book, by Orhan Pamuk. I bought this just before going on vacation to Turkey a few years ago. I knew absolutely nothing about the author, and thought I was picking up a detective story that would be a good beach read. I hadn't read true literary fiction since college. This book reminded me why I fell in love with reading in the first place.

Have you read our "About" page? Do you accept that we are a 100% Commercial-Free Zone, that we only read books available in libraries and used book stores, that membership is open to Denver-area residents only?

Yes, I have read the "About" page. I accept all terms and conditions.

Have you included your last name or first initial in your profile? (This is critical if you have a first name shared by others in the book club. We need to differentiate you from others.)

Yes.

Have you included a photo of yourself in your profile? (Photos of pets or landscapes are fine as secondary images, yet your primary image need to be a photo of you, so can greet you properly at our meetups.)

Okay.

Introduction

I am an editor and former Tattered Cover employee whose favorite leisure activity is reading. While I've lived in Colorado for most of my life, I've only been skiing twice (too much reading to do).
