What I’ve been reading…(Suggestions?)Posted: March 1, 2012
I wish I had this wall. Seriously. Since the first of the year, life has been, well, hectic. Reading has been a much needed escape. It’s always been my drug of choice. When things really get bad, I’m apt to forget/ignore/shove under the rug many tasks that I shouldn’t avoid (like laundry, unpacking, balancing the checkbook, grading papers, communicating with actual people). We’re not there yet, but I’m past book 20 for the year. For those counting, we are 61 days into the year. Not counting the magazines, blogs, and news-sites I read daily.
I DO enjoy re-reading. (and as I unpack, I keep seeing books I haven’t seen since they were put in a box sometime last year….) The general rule of thumb is that if I can’t remember how it ends, or how it got there, or why X was the bad guy/hero/snot it’s eligible to be read again. It’s like watching re-runs of your favorite show, or a movie for the 9,000th time. There’s something to notice, laugh or smile about.
Anyway, what are YOU reading? What’s on the TBR list? Bonus points if it’s something I can get from the school library where I work- one less errand to run. 🙂
