You know when you forget you had a hobby, and start getting re-obsessed again? Just me? Awesome.
Well, about once a year, I remember how much I enjoy reading. Maybe I spent six years burning myself out by reading educational theories. Or maybe it’s because I don’t have a great resource to excellent literature recommendations. Either way, I tend to go on reading sprees for a month at a time, knock out a whole series, and then get back to other hobbies.
This is where Jenna over at Eat, Live, Run comes in. This chick reads about 17 books a week (slight exaggeration), therefore, she is the connoisseur of all things reading related. Now, I haven’t read a lot of the books on her blog, because I frankly don’t have the time or the exact same reading interests.
However, the other night, I scribbled down an enormous list of book recommendations from ELR and jaunted to my local library. After frantically and frustratingly figuring out how to use their horribly designed searching system (I’m probably too dense to use it), I could not find A SINGLE BOOK. Talk about beyond peeved! Apparently, all of the rest of the Kansas City metro area also reads ELR and is after the same books I want.
So, needless to say, I went home and put a Kindle directly on my Christmas list. I may not have a clue what a Kindle actually does, or how to use the dang thing, but I, by god, will not wait for 44 people to read a book.
