I’ve always been a bookworm. Growing up, I was that (sometimes weird) kid that would read at any given time. This included at the dinner table, in the car as we drove the eight hours to California to visit family, at restaurants while we would wait to be seated, in the backyard… you get the picture. I looked forward to the local library’s Summer Reading Program every year and wouldn’t log in all of my hours so it would take me longer, maybe even a week, to finish the reading challenge. I secretly enjoyed a lot of my school reading assignments and have discovered a few favorite books that way. More often than not, my parents would have to tell me to put a book down and eat my food when I was little (although I was a great multi-tasker at this. If I got too distracted while reading, I could eat an entire sleeve of Chips Ahoy cookies).
Since I’m trying to make more time for reading again, I thought it would be fun to write about these books as I finish them. Don’t worry, these won’t be in-depth school reports, just little summaries and some of my thoughts. I’m sure it will give all of you a break from my semi-successful house projects and dog posts :) And if you have any reading suggestions, please let me know!
