Reading has always been an escape for me. If I'm in a bad mood, if I'm stuck in a rut, if I'm feeling like a hermit, or even if I'm hurting from heartbreak, reading always manages to take me away to another world where I am fully immersed, giving me a break from my own reality. To this day, I could be left to my own accord in a book store for hours upon hours and be completely content perusing through the aisles, only to be found later sitting on the floor somewhere surrounded by a mountainous pile of pages.
Unfortunately, while I've been in school I haven't had as much time to devote to my favourite pastime. So, what I inevitably end up doing is coming up with a list of books I vow to get through during my semester breaks, the next one being for the month of August. With the upcoming road trip down to San Francisco that Dave and I have planned, I hope to get through them all to help pass the time in the car as I tend to get antsy being in a vehicle for too long. Let me know if you've read any of these, what you thought, or what's on your "to read" list. Happy reading!
