6 Books I Am Reading
I am usually reading several books at the same time. After peer pressure from friends I gave it up for several years. I started to just read one book at a time. Waiting till I had finished it to start a new book. It was miserable. It took me over a year to read Dracula. And I enjoyed that book too. But you are not always in the mood for the seriousness of Bram Stoker's Dracula. Sometimes it is nice to read something lighthearted. Or something filled with excitement. After I finally finished Dracula I decided to ignore the people who pestered me and read as many books as I wanted.
At the moment there are six books I am actively reading.
Writing Excuses on roguishness. I had to read the book they mentioned. I came to find out as I was buying it that there were books that came before it. However, I had already committed to reading it so I went ahead and started. I was in love with it on the first page worth of writing. I already have the first in the series and when I finish this one I will be starting that one. I hear a forth is coming out and I am supper excited.
Triangle Shirtwaist Factory fire fascinating. It was a truly horrifying event that highlights why we are so lucky to have the protections for workers that we have today. I have always wanted to learn more about the event, so when I spotted this book at my friends book store I had to have it.
My Current Reads on GoodReads
Reading is so much fun. It can be relaxing. It can let you escape from reality for a bit. It can teach you new things. Reading can be exciting and even exhausting. And even then it can still be fun and worth the effort.
So, how do you feel about reading? And what are you reading?
