I tend to read books in waves. Sometimes turning hundreds of pages in a day for weeks, other times letting my books collect dust for quite a while. I guess it's like a marathon runner carb-loading before a big race. I let my pile of books built up until I am ready to jump in head first and devour them all.
It really surprises me that I enjoy reading as much as I do. As a child my mother couldn't get me to read anything except teeny bopper magazines like Teen Beat, BOP, and Seventeen. Oh, and the occasional comics strip from the newspaper. I had read a lot but had never really enjoyed my books. That is until I was in my early 20's. Not sure what changed, I think it may be that I had experienced enough about life at that point to connect with the characters I was reading about.
Since it is one of my book devouring phases I thought I would share a few of my latest favorite reads:
au revoir, adieu, ciao, till next time...
