Summer Reading Challenge - All Done
My non-fiction list had only one book crossed off & I readily admit I was already half-way through that one. I have a VERY hard time reading non-fiction. I'm not sure why. I have a shelf of books sitting here that I bought a few years ago to read & I still haven't opened them. ::sigh::
However, my fiction list went very well & I even read eight extra books I didn't have on my list. I love to read. I read a lot. I sometimes feel guilty over the amount of reading I do. I read when I sit down to eat. I read at bedtime. I read during the day - especially if it's a really good book! I have always been a reader.
In fact, I still remember a time when I was out of high school & even college (I think). I was working at a home health agency as a receptionist/billing coder. We shared the lunch room with the rest of the building we had space in. One day a girl I knew from high school walked in. I didn't even know she worked in the building. I was sitting there eating my lunch & reading a book - of course. I was by myself. She said hello & commented on how I always seemed to have a book to read. I just love a good story to read. I suppose it's my way of escaping from life for a little bit & traveling the globe.
