It has been said we become the sum of the people we surround ourselves by.  Tammy is a firm believer that this can include people we meet and come to understand and share life with through the pages they have written in their lifetimes.  Below is a list of books that have been significant in shaping Tammy as a person.  And she’d like to share them with you… at least her top 75 or so…

“These books are like tiny little mirrors floating along the cosmos of my life, each a treasured gift, having shown up just in time to offer me discovery of myself, and to give me an ever-evolving lens through which to find beauty in humanity and in our world.”   -Tammy Scarlett
