In January I could not stop reading. I zipped through seven books and was hungry for more. When February rolled around I started three different books and, for the life of me, could not get to the end of any of them. It wasn't that they weren't interesting, I just couldn't keep my eyes open at night when I read. Ugh, February, you were such a cold and nonproductive reading month! Discouraging.
This month I am back in action and strangely, I am reading several books at one time. I have never, ever done this. Do you do this? I've always been a one-book-at-a-time kind of girl. It's weird, but I'm liking it. Anyway, right now I'm reading The Martian, Gathering Blue, and Yes Please. I've got Upstairs at the White House, The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks, What Alice Forgot, The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry, and Better Than Before all on hold via the OverDrive app. Have you tried this app? It's so wonderful! You can borrow ebooks (audiobooks, periodicals) via this app through your public library. When your selection is available, you download the ebook onto your computer, smartphone, iPad, or ereader (you get the idea), and have it to read for 21 days before it automatically 'returns' to the library.
Mind you, there is nothing better than holding a book, the smell of a book, being in a library or book store, borrowing a book, and buying a book. I (all of us) straddle that fabulous line between instantaneous technological reading convenience and feeling the weight of a book on my chest while reading in my bed late into the night. It is so glorious. Oh my, is it ever a wonderful reading world.
What are you reading? I would love to hear your recommendations!
