One of my favorite literary works is Breakfast at Tiffany’s.

It was a novel that was impossible to put down and always had something exciting to grab the reader.

I am currently reading a lot of travel stories. They have really sparked my interest after beginning a travel writing class and it is a whole new kind of reading and learning.
