A year or so ago I decided to start reading. Not that I didn't read before, I just didn't find 'reading' enjoyable...at all. The reason I made this one of my New Year's Resolutions was simple...every woman I aspired to be more like read...a LOT. Therefore I too was going to read...a LOT.
It started with a book I thought I should be reading. I had a comfy chair, a glass of water...and then 4 pages into the first book I decided to take a nap.
I quickly realized 2 things about my reading style:
1. I an not a 'sit down and read' kind of gal
2. I need a book with a real story to take me away, let my brain relax
Well, 27 books later I have to say that I do enjoy a good story, and I seem to have an affinity for books about European women. Who knew! And yes, I seem to enjoy books with some kind of fashion-ey undertone. Shocking.
Oh my word. This book moved me. Many times I would be in the middle of a really good part, and it would (seriously) set off the tone of my entire day. For a period of time, it is all I could talk about (sorry friends!). Really, you should read this.
But right now, I am reading A VINTAGE AFFAIR. So far so good!
WATER FOR ELEPHANTS is next on my list. I think it is going to make me cry.
So, what are you reading?
