I’m on Spring Break! Officially it began for me on Thursday but I’ve been relaxing most of the week. Needless to say, the way that I’ve been relaxing is by reading.
Reading is my number one hobby. It’s my comfort, escape, and solace. For me, there’s something relaxing about reading that can’t be beat by any of my other hobbies. No matter what format or genre, I love being in bed with a book; just slipping into the worlds these authors create. As I mentioned in a previous post, I went to the library over a week ago and picked up a stack of books. I stayed up until after 3:00 this morning reading Catherine Coulter’s Enigma and am now less than a hundred pages into Harlan Coben’s Don’t Let Go.
One of my favorite parts of being a reader is getting to experience different lives, occupations and worlds. The pages of books really do allow you to live other experiences. I think that my love of books translates to my ability to see the plot twists in movies and TV shows. I may finish this book tonight or tomorrow but then I’ll definitely be diving into the next one. I’m sure that Monday will see me picking up another stack of books as I eagerly await the delivery of pre-ordered books from Amazon.
Note:The picture above is one of my favorite reads from my latest library pick up. If you haven’t had the chance to read it, please check it out when you have time. It’s a wonderful blend of history and fiction.
