For the Love of Reading

As if I don't have enough going on....I wanted to write a blog. Something fun, something I could keep up with without feeling like it was a chore, something that wasn't just talking about my day or what my kids are doing. After all, I already do all of that on Facebook. I love to write, but other than Carepage updates, I don't have an outlet for writing. I wanted something I could tie into a passion of mine and I really only have one BIG passion.

I read. Wait, that's not accurate.  I don't just read books. I need books. I love books. I live for reading. I need reading like I need air to breathe. You may think I'm exaggerating, which by the view of many who know me well, I do (by a factor 1/3 -according to my husband) but in this admission I am not. Books keep me up at night, give me something to look forward to each and every day. They are a sweet escape. They wiggle their wordy little way into my heart and soul and take root, making me mourn for them when I finally close the last page. Seriously. I go through a grieving process when I finish a good book (again, no exaggerating). I have an entire Pinterest board devoted to just reading. Pictures of books that make me happy, quotes about books, actual books. I get giddy just thinking about it.

I could go on forever. But I won't. Not now. There is plenty of time for my ramblings.

The point of this blog is for me to talk about my passion in a candid, silly, honest and strictly non-boring way and to most importantly, review the books I read. When I read a truly good book I want everyone to enjoy it. Conversely when I read a bad one, I want people to stay away and not waste their precious time. So...I will climb on my soapbox and (hopefully) people will listen and I can give back to the universe what a good book gives me.

So sit back and enjoy as I (attempt to) thrill you with thoughts and opinions on my most very favorite of subjects.
