I majored in English lit in college and even took a brief go at trying to make a career out of being a bookworm by aspiring to become a book editor .... until I realized that book editors make like no money, and this chick's got student loans and expenses, y'know what I mean.
Joining the workforce kind of killed it for me for a while. Reading got relegated to magazines and newspapers for a really long time. Then reality TV got real popular - yes, I blame you, Real Housewives, for my increased reading (in)comprehension.
And then I got my Kindle Fire last Christmas and my inner bookworm rejoiced. The convenience of the Internet to bring books instantaneously to me and a treasure trove of free downloads so I can breeze through a ton of goodies and a load of crap. Amazon has probably made a ton of Kindle money off of me but I've always got three-four books in rotation now and I love it. My recent faves on my carousel?
Born Round by Frank Bruni - about an addiction to food, but written with a ton of humor and light
Maman's Homesick Pie by Donia Bijana - I adore novels where authors weave together a story through food - partly because I love food
The Age of Innocence by Edith Wharton - one of my faves of all time
The Scourge of Muirwood by Jeff Wheeler - the third in a trilogy - one of the few medieval fantasy novels I've read and I seriously have not been able to put it now. I've devoured the first two books back-to-back.
Run by Blake Crouch - imagine every doomsday preppers' worst nightmare ... though those guys would be prepared for this type of shiz, so would that be like their dream come true then ...?
