tWell, I'm not officially in a book club, but I have been borrowing all of my friend, Julie's, books recently. It has been at lease a year since I've dived into a good book, therefore, my drive for literary exploration was waning. However, Julie has revitalized my hunger! Unlike movie's or even television, there's a savoring and time commitment that comes from reading books that allows you to be completely immursed into their world....and I had missed it. Now, I crave coming home in order to find out where our protagonist is in their journey. I love knowing I don't need headphones, or charged battery, or even electricity to enjoy a story. I think I just needed to get back on the paperback horse, and now, I can't stop riding.
I challenge you to make a list, or set goals. What have you been dying to read? Maybe challenge yourself to a classic that never seemed appealing in school. Or, start a hunt for your new favorite author. Recently, I've been on an autobiography kick that I don't want to give up. Reading stories from other women, some whom I admire their career, is always motivating. One's that have made me salivate recently:
Not That Kind of Girl by Lena Dunham
Yes Please by Amy Poehler
Wild by Cheryl Strayed
