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

23 Memes That Explain What Going Through A Deployment is Really Like

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. …

Am I A Different Person Then I Was Five Years Ago?

I just finished the book Wild by Cheryl Strayed. In it she talks about her 1,000 mile journey along the Pacific Crest Trail. She went on this trip to help her deal with the death of her mother and her recent divorce. It is also a movie with Reese Witherspoon, one of my favorite actresses. We also saw the movie a few weeks ago. The book and the movie touched me greatly.
