Paul Gordon Ostler February 3, 1990 - August 2, 2005
Paulsbooks Bookshelf is dedicated to the memory of an incredible young man. Paul was struck by lightning and died on August 2, 2005. Paul was 15 years old. We hope to inspire others to share the love of reading Paul had.
Paul Ostler loved to read great books. Paul often wondered what life would be like if you didn’t like to read. It was incredulous for him to imagine his life, or anyone’s life without the influence of good books to read. Reading a book was a magical experience for Paul. He loved the challenge. He transported himself into the story and had a relationship with the characters.
We miss Paul so very much! We want to keep the memory…the very essence of Paul alive by sharing one of his passions in life with as many people as we can. We hope to give people an opportunity to know Paul and be inspired by his spirit through the gift of reading.
You are invited to read a book for Paul, share a book with a friend, read out-loud with children, and do everything you can to promote literacy in our world. Please help Paul’s Pass-along Books reach many places in the world! Help us watch Paul’s books travel far and wide!
