Reading is one of my favorite pastimes. As a child, I literally had a book glued in my hands at all times. On vacation, in the car, while walking on the sidewalk, in class, and especially curled up in bed. I’m a bookworm. Freshman year of high school, I had to vow to not read for pleasure during certain points of the year. For some reason I picked up “Gone with the Wind” right around finals time and I seriously could not put the book down. Instead of studying, I read “Gone with the Wind”. Instead of sleeping, I read about Scarlett and Rhett. Instead of taking my time during my finals, I rushed through the exams to read. You could say I’m slightly addicted.
One thing I love about reading is the ability to escape. No matter what is going on in my life I can always forget about everything when I get lost in a book. The images and emotions consume me and I get swept away in a fictional world. Here are a few I really enjoyed reading.
So tell me…what are a few of your favorite books?
