A Super Long List of Fiction Books to Keep You Busy During a Deployment

A Super Long List of Fiction Books to Keep You Busy During a Deployment

I love to read, I have as long as I can remember. My dad was a librarian when I was born and I guess it was just meant to be. I read about 40-70 books a year and wish it could be 100. Seriously. Books are amazing! I love how you can get truly lost in a story, learn more about something you didn’t, or connect with characters and hear their stories.

Getting lost in a book is a good way to handle those deployment days. Books can be so healing in this way, whether they simply take your mind off of your own situation or allow you to experience a story that touches your heart.
