I used to read a lot in college... and by "read" I mean skim stacks of books about religion and theoretical concepts of philosophy. At one point we were reading 6-8 books a week for my undergraduate degree.
So I kind of ruined myself towards books. I got real into self-help books after college, but again, those can only be tolerated so much as well. Until... The Hunger Games. Teen fiction at it's best. I devoured the series last Christmas while getting through the stomach flu. The delusion plus my desire to tear through pages made it a wonderful experience. So now I can't stop... it's the first time in my life I've understood the joy of reading. After all the reading rainbow specials, book clubs, degrees etc... I finally get it. Reading for pleasure, not because I have to, or because I'm trying to find answers to life... but because stories are exciting.
It's so serious, I'm looking forward to next Autumn because the final book of the series I'm reading releases. Am I still cool? Or is this what you do when you are old?
So, I'm taking book suggestions- because my world is brand new and I'm experiencing the sorrow after finishing a series and looking for something else to imagine. If you have any recommendations
send them my way... GO! (p.s. don't like horror or 50 shades)
