Reading a book = almost the best thing ever.
I’ve been an avid reader since childhood. Nothing seemed as exciting to me as cracking open a new-to-me book from the bookmobile (which stopped at my elementary school parking lot every Thursday.) Or, be still my heart, a pile of Scholastic Books that were ordered just for me through my school. My very own books!
I have a regular feature on my sidebar that shows what I’m currently reading and what I’ve just finished reading, because I think you might like to know about that. I love to hear what others are reading; it tells me a lot about that person and, bonus, I just might find something I haven’t heard about and would love to try for myself.
Reading is always an escape for me, unless it is the kind of reading you have to do for classes and homework which is not an escape. At this moment in my life, I really need an escape, so I grabbed some Daniel Silva thriller/espionage books from my local library. That magazine you see under the book is called Secondhand Treasures – all about collecting and vintage and flea markets – and is one of those special editions that cost too much money. What was I thinking? Escape.
So tell me on this Saturday: What are you reading?
