Love of Reading

Here's something y'all may not know about me....I'm a HUGE bookworm! I'm not lying - I live for reading! Don't believe me?!?! My dream job is to be a public librarian. Still don't believe me?!?! I have a Masters in Library Science! On the days that I'm feeling agitated or stressed out, I cruise over to the library and walk up & down the aisles....just enjoying the feel & smell of books. Yes, books have a special smell that soothes my soul! Laugh if you want but books and I have had a lllllooooooooonnnngggg loving relationship. I owned every Nancy Drew and Hardy Boys book when I was younger and my dad would take me on dates to the bookstore! :)

Anyway, I kinda...ok...REALLY...hate that during prep it seems like my reading time vanishes. Books by my favorite authors will be published and I won't be able to read them for weeks because I'm too busy cooking chicken, doing deadlifts, or speed-walking on my treadmill. Not this prep! Nope, I'm not havin' it!!!

Enter the newest addition to my library:

I have been waiting for MONTHS for this book to come out! I have a crush on the main character Joe Pike...the man has blue eyes & tattoos...kinda like my hubs :) I rushed to the bookstore at lunch yesterday to buy the book and didn't even wait to get back to my desk to start reading it (I started it at the first red light I reached!). I'm such a happy girl that it's kinda ridiculous.

So, that's how I'm spending my Wednesday night...curled up in my bed, wearing comfy clothes, and enjoying Robert Crais' incredible writing! Does anyone else have a love of reading?? Please tell me I'm not the only one!!! :)


  1. You are definitly NOT the only one... When I was home I had to run up to my parents attic and found boxes upon boxes of my old books. I'm a total junkie! I luck out my apt has a small library so I donate all my old books (the I know my mom or sister in law wont read)...

  2. I do! I haven't had a chance to read a lot of "real" books since I've been in school. Definitely looking forward to it again. I'm a big Janet Evanovich fan and patiently await her annual Stephanie Plum series books!!
