I cannot tell you how thrilled I am that I started this little blog series. I know it’s only my second book review, but it’s exactly what I needed to kick start this reading thing again. The only down side is that now I want to read all the time instead of blog. Oh the problems I have. I also feel like I may be the last person in the world to discover Book Depository. Those books are CHEAP compared to the book stores, aren’t they!! And free worldwide shipping? I must have been hiding under a rock to miss this little gem!!
When I was a kid I used to read a lot. My favourite part of the day was between 8.30pm and 9pm when I was tucked up in bed with the latest Baby Sitters Club book. Since becoming a little bit more ‘adult’ my reading time has slowly faded away. During uni I spent so much time reading thick text books that there wasn’t enough time for anything else.
Now that I’m mostly all done with that my aim is to start reading again. And not just books on my iPad either, actual physical books. iBooks is handy for when I’m out and about but nothing compares to a physical book in your hand and the smell of freshly printed pages.
The 31st of January was my 31st Birthday. Yup.. 31.. on the 31st!! I can’t believe it myself. Its scary how the years go so quickly when you get older, not that turning 31 is old (I hope). It feels like only yesterday I was celebrating my 30th birthday in the most mature way possible with a trip to Harry Potter World in Orlando. This year was a little bit more sedate but I still had a great day.
