Today’s theme: books!
I wish there was a way to make that look like my goodreads widget at the bottom of my profile but hey, I’ll take what I can get.
According to my recently updated goodreads profile, I’ve read a lot of books. That is just an estimate, though, because I have lost track of all of the books I’ve read in my lifetime.
According to my mom, I’ve always read and loved books. If I was ever quiet growing up, I was hiding somewhere with my current read. I’m still that way. As mentioned in a previous post, I LOVE to lay in the sun in my hammock with a good book. Sometimes I’ll even draw a bath, throw a bath bomb in, and spend hours in the tub reading. Well, maybe not hours. More like however long it takes for my water to get cold. I’m not really a fan of cold anything unless it’s food…especially ice cream. I love me some ice cream.
Anyways, I love reading. Not on a screen, though. I have to have the material in my hands. There’s something about a book and the smell and the feel of the paper that creates a sense of nirvana for me. I have a big stack of “to read” books in my bedroom right now. I get a lot of my books secondhand on thriftbooks.com (I have a code for like 15% off so if you’re interested hit me up). Honestly, even though fresh books are nice, I love receiving secondhand books. They tell a story other than what’s written on the pages.
If you care, add me on goodreads! I love to stay updated with what other people are reading and have read. I usually get a lot of ideas and suggestions from other people’s goodreads profiles.
