with a dreamy far off look and her nose stuck in a book

One of my favorite hobbies has always been reading and it’s a hobby that I’m exceptionally good at. I remember my kindergarten teacher handing me my first book to read on my own. I always read books with my mom and my grandparents. I was the kid who read for fun at any chance she got and spent her birthday money at the bookstore. I would stay up into the late hours of the night reading my newest book. Having the most AR points in elementary was always a personal goal of mine. I love to read. I love books.

Books have always been an important part of my life and I miss reading dearly. As my school and work schedules have gotten busier, I have read less and less. So I have decided to change that. I am making myself a book bucket list, a book-it list, if you will. I’m stealing borrowing this list from a host of other “books you should read by…” lists and throwing in a few of my personal favorites and plan to update it as go!
