Some of you may be wondering “Where have you been?”
And some of you, most assuredly, have not noticed my absence from this little corner of the world.
Nonetheless, I am prepared with an excuse.
I have been reading.
About a month or two ago, I was talking about books with my friend Courtney, and I mentioned that I love to read. Puzzled, she responded by saying something about how odd that was to hear because she never heard me talking about books I was reading. This comment left me internally rocked for approximately 2.5 seconds until I realized that she was right. I couldn’t put my finger on the last book that I had read. I was a bibliophilic-fraud (I just made that word up…this tends to happen when you are not reading and your vocabulary shrinks).
I have become increasingly aware of my growing addiction to the internet. I can spend hours combing through my Google Reader, reading other people’s blogs. I love it – but it can also be a massive waste of time. So this month, I decided to shut down the computer and head to the library. I decided to let my Feed sit for days at a time, and instead sit myself in a chair with a good book.
Here are some of the books I’ve been reading:
I admit that my English professors in college might not be altogether impressed with my selections, but I have enjoyed every one of these books. I’m headed back to the library soon…
and I highly suggest that you do the same.
