Q&A with Michelle Snow

WNBA: How old were you when you started reading?
MS: The minute I could get my hands on a book.
WNBA: What books did you enjoy reading while you were growing up? How did it help you get you to where you are now in the WNBA?
MS: Little Women, Around the World in 80 Days, Dr. Seuss, and the Children’s Bible. It helped me to get a quality education which is a prerequisite to play in the WNBA.
WNBA: Why do you think reading is important?
MS: Reading is a passion for me because reading is a fundamental tool for learning.
WNBA: How does reading help you as a basketball player and in your everyday life?
MS: Reading is important in my everyday life because I would not be effective in my business without having the love of reading which allows me to keep learning new things.
WNBA: What is your favorite type of book (i.e.. mystery, adventure, autobiography, etc)?
MS: The Bible, business, web design, and self-evolution books are my favorite subjects to read.
WNBA: How many books do you read a year?
MS: Over 100 a year (50 minimum)
WNBA: What books would you personally recommend for kids (8-12) to read?
MS: Oh, The Places You’ll Go - Dr. Seuss (teaches you to dream)
The Children’s Bible (best self-evolution book ever written)
Around the World in 80 days (started my love to travel)
