I've been on a little bit of a binge lately. During the school year, I never read fiction. There simply isn't time. And if there is, I do so much reading for school, that the last thing I want to do to relax is read. So after I finished a large project for school the second week of June, I dug into some pleasure reading. With a vengeance.
There really isn't anything like it for me. I sink deep into a book and barely hear anything around me. I certainly don't acknowledge the passing of time or simple things like the need for food or sleep. Reading becomes all-consuming. And I gave into my passions. I didn't really mean to. I intended to take about a week off from school and then come back refreshed. After about a week, I did start doing my work again. But not with the same vigor as usual. It was like I still had more fiction in my system that needed to get out. Or maybe just books I needed to check off my list. Anyway, the mini list of top priorities is done now. I'm also feeling recharged mentally, so I guess it was a good thing. Here are my recent discoveries, or inhalations, depending on how you look at it.
So those are my recent finds. What have you been reading? Something about summer just makes me want to pick up books. I hope I'm not the only one.
