Love of Reading

I have always loved to read since I was a little girl. I was a very solitary young girl and enjoyed a book and just being by myself. I went through a time where I didn't read very much at all, just stopped making time for it and got wrapped up in other things. My passion for reading was restored when I read the Twilight series. I couldn't get enough and thought these books are so incredible what am I going to read after this that I will feel the same about. Then I started reading the Harry Potter series and loved those as well (actually took a small reprieve and stopped at book 6, but I will go back to them of course). Then from there it just went on, the desire to read. Beyond just the sheer pleasure that a good read brings to me, is the fact that it helps take my mind off the stressful situations for the time while I am steeped in my book. My fiance is currently deployed to Iraq and on some days that I am worried about him so much, picking up a good book helps me to let go of that stress for just a bit and make it through another day. Thank you to all of you that take the time to read this. Just starting out this blog, but I will be posting more in the future. I am looking forward to sharing my reading experiences with everyone that would like to see.

Continuous Journey,
