Yay glorious books to make me a better OT some day

So I went a little crazy at the library today…i LOVE reading true stories from people with any kind of mental or physical problem or whatever. I just skim the health sections till I find what are clearly stories and not just fact books…I am excited. I have these books for 3 weeks then can renew again, plus I'm fast + I skim boring parts, so I think it will work out. I'm excited to have some new books to read plus every little new perspective I gain contributes to my future career as an OT 🙂

My one blog goal tonight is to post about AOTA conference. Later though. I gotta go eat my peanut butter toast first.
