Summer Reading...

One of my greatest loves, from as long as I can remember, is reading.  I was a voracious reader growing up and loved the every 2 week stop of the bookmobile at my house (yes, we really had a bookmobile!)  I  have been schooled, stretched and molded by the books that were my friends through life. 

Sadly, though, as I entered into a prolonged dark season I lost my ability to read for pleasure.  The one thing that was a guaranteed escape for me emotionally and physically seemed to disappear. Although, I still loved books, I was lucky to get through a magazine article.  I read, for work, but hadn't read anything for pure pleasure in a very long time...until this week.

Tonight I finished my first pleasure read in probably almost 3 years.  It was a strange feeling to come to the end of my book and realize how much I had missed losing myself in the pages of a novel.  So, maybe the bookmobile won't be around anytime soon but I can't wait to dig into the pages of something new!

  1. Joyous! I'm waaaaay off the reading train, too...but I'm not feeling the tug to hop back onboard. :-P I'll enjoy vicariously through you!


Thank you for stopping by...leave a little of your sparkle before you go!
