Anyone who knows me well knows that I am a total fool for reading. I LOVE it. I could be happy staying home every day and reading for the entire time that I’m supposed to be at work. One of the reasons I’m excited to move is that the library is supposed to be much better in Suwanee than the one that is near us. Well, that wouldn’t be hard to beat, but still.
I finished my second book in the last few days tonight, and it occurred to me how much I had missed it when I first started to work out here. I didn’t have any time to plow through a book, as Tom describes it. =) Only recently have I been able to pick it up again, and I’m so glad I did. Something about me is that I don’t do well reading a book that I haven’t really been wanting to read. It takes me forever to read a book if I’m only mildly interested or if someone says, “You REALLY ought to read this book; you’d love it.” I’m still working on a couple of books (that aren’t even very long) that two different people let me borrow months ago. I need to finish them because they should be returned to their owners. I can’t stand not finishing a book, so I’ve been holding onto them all this time trying to get myself back into reading them. No luck yet, but I think I’m going to have to just get over it and read them.
Last month, a group of girlfriends from college and I had our first book club meeting. We have a less than conventional club, however. It’s less of reading the same book and more of swapping books or titles that we recommend, discussing what we’re currently reading, and talking about what we’ve read in the past and how we felt about it. A lot of the discussions lead us off on tangents, but that’s fine because we are already friends and are genuinely interested in hearing each others thoughts, personal news, and stories. We also all bring something to eat or drink and socialize a bit. It’s so much fun to all be nerds together, haha. As I look at the picture below, I’m reminded of how short Jenn and I are. =)

ps- Tom and I now have a picture of the front and back of our house. We can’t wait to move out of this apartment that the four of us have outgrown! =)
