Bookworm

I apologise for slighty neglecting this blog, part of the reason is that I'm getting back into my reading. When I was younger I was never seen without a book in my hand, Mum used to constantly tell me off for reading a book while I was walking. I honestly can't recall the number of lamposts she had to drag me out of the way of as I was along with my nose buried deeply in my book.

This behaviour has slowly tailed off over the years what with my active social life (I wish!), but when I was on holiday I managed to get through 7 books in a space of 14 days, and these weren't thin books either. So about a month ago I went to my local library and acquired a brand spanking new library card (and a funky keyring fob) as I'd lost my old one, and got out a bunch of books. Anyhow I finished them a little while ago, and so this week I returned them and got out a whole new bunch of books to read.

I felt like a bit of an intellectual as I checked out books which included; Catch 22 and Nineteen-eighty-four by George Orwell, however I can't help but think this image was ruined by the "rude and politically incorrect jokes" book I also checked out...

Now I get roughly to the point of this post, I want to read lots but I don't know which books to go for usually. If anyone reads this and has a particular favourite book to recommend I'd be ever so grateful. Now, back to the task at hand, sitting in bed with "Dress your family in corduroy and denim". This is the life.

1984 is a fantastic book, and in a strange irony is becoming more and more relevant the older it gets. Classic.

I used to be an avid reader. And then the reality of high school set in and reading became a low priority.

One of my favorites-- The Plague by Albert Camus.

Lola you remind me of myself! I'm such a bookworm, always have been. I read all kinds of genres but have been mostly drawn to fantasy and horror ... I don't know why. I love Stephen King and Dean Koonz, Terry Goodkind and Terry Brooks. Those are my top four authors. Of course everynow and then I pick up a good "chick" book - not the romance novels but a good sappy love story sometimes is just what the heart needs. So the point of this comment: read a little bit of everything!
