Books That Make a Difference: Oh where to begin? My love affair with books began early with “Charlotte’s Web,” “From the Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler” and “A Wrinkle in Time” and continues with “Love in the Time of Cholera,” “House of Spirits,” “Elegance of the Hedgehog,” “Lincoln in the Bardo,” and “Life After Life,” along with so many more.
