Books are wonderful.
I read a crazy amount while in school. And then for some reason this changed while in college. The only books I read were those that were required (or sometimes optional) for a class. Semi-related: I got really good at reading research papers.
I’m hoping to get back into my old reading habits. I recently (7 weeks ago) bought a book shelf for my room, after which I may or may not have gone and bought a lot of books. I read The Road, Persepolis, Persepolis II, V for Vendetta, Batman: The Killing Joke, Batman: The Dark Knight Returns, Batman Vol 1: The Court of Owls, and Batman Vol 2: The City of Owls (I also discovered that I really like graphic novels. Which makes sense since I like art. And books.). I’m currently reading Cloud Atlas. Next on the list: The Stranger, and Blindness.
I love the fact that I live close to an amazing bookstore.
It feels really good rediscovering what was once a part of my life.
