Welcome to Looks Like Books

My goal here at Looks Like Books is to make non-readers into readers, and readers into even bigger readers. Let books inspire you, teach you, and comfort you.

I’m Mary, your host, and Chief Troublemaker here at LLB. Honestly, I’ve been regularly lost inside the pages of a book since I learned to read. There is no other interest or hobby that brings me as much pleasure as reading a book.

Are you a wannabe reader but not sure what to read?  I started this book blog to help others develop the same love of reading that I have. I hope to inspire everyone that visits with that same love of books. So, happy reading!
