I’ve been a big-time book nerd for as long as I could remember. When I was Sam’s age I would be perfectly happy sprawled out on the couch for hours with a new book. I had a subscription to this Weekly Reader Book Club and would make it my mission to complete the book well before the next one came in the mail.
Nowadays, the whole reading thing is not going so well. I mean, I obviously read things daily (it’s kind of hard to be a writer/editor without reading things—although sometimes I do wonder…), but it’s mostly work related or blog posts or kids books. I very rarely take a minute to sit down and read for pleasure. And that’s not cool.
I’m trying really hard to be better at carving twenty minutes or so into my schedule to read. I’ve even started making an epic list of things I want to check out. I picked five very diverse titles off my list to share with you guys.
