Books For Fun
I'm reading "The Book Thief" right now as part of my "return to a normal, happy life" plan.
I really, really like it so far.
I also read "Why Girls Are Weird", but I hated it. I was so bored reading it that I almost stabbed myself in the eye to keep myself awake.
Thankfully, I received a lot of books and bookstore gift cards as graduation presents. I didn't want presents, but I think my husband pushed people in that direction so that I didn't blow all of our savings on fun reads after I defended. Little did he know that I would be busier after defending than I was in the weeks prior to finishing.
He has threatened (lovingly) to drop me off at the bookstore every weekend for two hours so that I could read books there without buying them. I told him to blame my mother for allowing me to take speedreading courses when I was 12 and that owning the book was part of the fun. I also told him that without books, I may be forced to take up shoe shopping. He chose the book option.
