I was 12 years old and I would never admit to anyone how much I loved to read.
And I would never admit how fast I read. When we had to read something in class, I read it three or four times before I looked up and acted like I was done.
Through high school, when others complained about the books they read, I complained along with them even though I secretly relished the literature we were assigned.
When Facebook began, I was in college and I dared to not list "reading" under my favorite activities... even though it was.
But now, I'm owning it. I love to read. I devour books the way some people devour dessert. I'll stay up until 3 a.m. if the book is good enough. I joined Good Reads and spent over an hour rating my favorite books.
I am that person. I am a book nerd.
But what I love is realizing that so much of the blog community are book nerds too. You guys are my people. You tweet about books you've read, you blog about the books you love. I have found my people.
And fellow book nerds-- I have some suggestions for you to read, but I'd love for you to tell me what you love to read... and if you're on Goodreads, find me there too.
happy friday. I am so thankful this week is over. It was rough but I am so thankful for prayers being answered.
you all should read: Unbroken by Laura Hildebrand, Same Kind of Different as Me by Ron Hall, Half-Broke Horses by Jeannette Walls, Bossypants by Tina Fey, Moloka'i by Alan Brennert... I could go on...
