Book Worm

I've been on for the past twenty minutes... They have a ton of bargain books from $1.99 and I want to buy some, but I feel like I can't purchase books with confidence without thumbing through them myself. Though I could just take a chance, seeing as they're so cheap!

I wish I was reading more. I'm kind of ashamed that I'm only on my 3rd book of the summer. I've been working and spending time with actual humans and reading a ton of blogs, but I still feel like I should have made more literary headway! The books I am reading have been quality, though. I'm almost halfway through The Sirens of Titan by Kurt Vonnegut. Definitely a departure from my usual interests, but it's the boyfriend's favorite book, so I decided it would be worth reading. I like it! It's a bit more difficult to get into, simply because the genre isn't my typical cup of tea. I've really enjoyed stepping out of my norm, though. And it's all about the meaning of life, which is so very complex and intriguing. One thing I learned from my parents: Expand your horizons. It really does pay off.

I have a list of books I still want to read this summer, and there are definitely more than 3, so I better start speeding through if I'm gonna have any chance. Once I get back to school, I'll be too busy with 'Nineteenth Century British Novels.' ...Yikes.
