"never trust anyone who has not brought a book with them"

Not my photo. I wish!
Over the past couple of weeks, I have become utterly and completely consumed with books.
Reading them. Writing them. Marveling at how beautiful their old pages look, with inky fonts pressed into paper, like someone etched their heart there.

It's been taking me over, and it has been wonderful.
Part of my reignited passion for reading has stemmed from an online Adolescent Literature class I'm taking. It has been forcing me to read one young adult novel a week, and then write a paper about it. I didn't think I would enjoy it as much as I have been; this class has made me a quicker reader, a better writer, and a sharper thinker. I spend much more time reading than I did only several weeks ago.

On a semi-related note, I have also been going through the nerve-wrecking exciting process of job hunting. I'm applying to a few local bookstores (big surprise) and can't wait to see what God does on that front.

+ What about you? Do you love reading? I welcome any recommendations you guys have! 
My favorite YA book I've read for class so far is "Ready Player One" by Ernest Cline. If you're into video games, 80's culture, or general geekery, check it out! Also, if you enjoy weeping and want to feel excessively emotional while you read, you can click here for the best background music of all time.  


  1. I love books with all my heart. Reading takes me to many magical places. And if you're into video games I totally recommend books of Andrzej Sapkowski about The Witcher. :)

    1. It is the most wonderful thing, such a blessing to be able to read! ^-^ I'll check it out! Thank you for the recommendation!

  2. the story of our life is in the books! far internet and other social networks, the knowledge and transmitted book it for centuries! your post is very interesting reflection on this!

    1. That's so cool to think about it...the history of man is literally pressed into pages. Such a beautiful thought! Thanks for the sweet comment. (:


Go with grace.
