I am a reader.
Just ask my mom.
When I was 16 I got my own room. It was awesome. After several months, I realized I was right next to the work room - which had its own exit. I could sneak out and my mom would NEVER KNOW.
It took a few nights to work up the courage. Then I carefully placed my sneakers on my too wide feet, eased open that work room door, and tiptoed up the cement stairs. The whole world was at my fingertips.
What did I do with all that freedom?
I sat on the swing set and read.
I was such a rebel.
Reading is my escape. It lets me turn off reality for a short time and explore another world. A place where all my problems will be solved in 400 pages.
Even in my busiest times, I have a book I'm reading. All through college, or testing, or potty training, I find time to read - even just 15 minutes during lunch.
I also love Good Reads. It lets me keep track of just how many books I love, and helps me remember what those books actually are.
With all that in mind, I'm going to start something new here. I am NOT turning this into an actual book blog. But I am planning on putting a few thoughts once and a while on what I'm reading.
And I actually set a reading goal this year. 75 books. Should be easy (I've done 10 in 3 weeks). And you guys can keep me on task too -there's a widget over on the side there that shows my progress.
