Currently I'm reading a few books for my English class. I find that I am much more inclined to read when it's a book (or several) of my own choosing.
Complications by Atul Gawande - loving it so far!
The Devil in the White City by Erik Larson - very good so far!
Tuesdays with Morrie by Mitch Albom - I can tell this one is going to make me cry.
Frankenstein (I can't remember the author's name at the moment...) - haven't started this one quite yet.
Whilst compiling this list I am listening to Mute Math on iTunes, trying to decide which music selections I should put on my iPod. Technically, I should be in bed because I have a huge swim meet all day tomorrow, and then Sadie Hawkins Dance. So tomorrow won't be a great day for reading unfortunately. But I know I'm definitely excited to dive into these books and discover fantastic new worlds I've never imagined before.
I love reading, and I don't know what I would do without it. I honestly can't understand how people don't like to read books -- I LOVE it!! Reading is one of the best things in the world.
So if there's anything you wish to gain from this post, then maybe this will help. I want everyone who's reading this to make a goal for this week or even this month: find a book you would be interested in reading, and read at least half of it. You have to finish it by the end of this year (unless it's some ginormous epic novel). I encourage everyone to find a good book (or even more!) and take some time to relax and delve into a realm different from the one you live in.
I hope you all have a wonderful week!
Peace Like A River
