Forever a bookworm

Buckle up for some humblebragging. I could read before kindergarten. In fact, when I went into kindergarten, I once got in trouble for reading the teacher’s lesson plans. THAT WERE IN CURSIVE. In first grade, during reading time, the teacher sent me to the class with fourth- and fifth-graders to read with them. All throughContinue reading “Forever a bookworm”

Remembering the end of an era

Harry Potter has been over for a while now. No new books, no new movies. I refuse to accept it. Just kidding. But I will miss the excitement of the book release parties and the midnight showings and the fellow HP nerds that made you feel like you belonged.

I like to share things I like with other people – I hear a funny story, see a good movie, hear a great song, IContinue reading “These are a few of my favorite things…”

I’m gonna need a bigger bookshelf

My perfect day – if I could have a day just to do this and nothing else – would include little more than a comfortable chair and a stack of books. Oh, and lunch delivered from McAlister’s. Seriously though. I love to read. Always have. And I’m pretty good at it. Insert moment of shamelessContinue reading “I’m gonna need a bigger bookshelf”
