"Of all the diversions of life, there is none so proper to fill up its empty spaces as the reading of useful and entertaining authors."
~Joseph Addison

Today is Friday. Thank the heavens! I am so incredibly tired (or at least I was when I was at work... now I can't fall asleep and take that much needed and intended Friday evening nap). On my way home from work I stopped off at Costco. I kinda like that place. So much to look at and generally good prices. Although, when you buy at Costco, it may seem like they have good prices until you realize that you are buying fifty of whatever it is you need and therefore it's 50x more expensive. But anyway. I love it all the same. Today, I love Costco for its books and their discount prices. In a rare moment of true indulgence, I treated myself to four books. Yes. Count them. One. Two. Three. Four. Wanna see?

All came recommended. Which one should I start with?

I promise I'll read my school books, too.

I started with The Guernsey and Potato Peel Pie Society. Good choice. I'm so silly though. I'm still reading Anne Frank's Diary, The Cellist in Sarajevo, Eat Pray Love and Man's Search for Meaning. Why can't I just read one book cover to cover without starting another one. No wonder it takes me forever to finish a book sometimes. :) I guess I like to have the variety at my fingertips and then I can let my mood of the day make the choice. :)

Oh, and I'm still reading A Thousand Splendid Suns! That one has taken a break though.

I have been addicted to reading lately. Interesting selection. I may have to read some of those. I am finishing "Everyday Greatness" Stephen R Covey. It is filled with so many great thoughts and inspirational stories. Also the "City of Bones" "City of Ashes", and "City of Glass".. Oooooh they are delicious!! A must read!

How can you read during school? I had to wait until summer break to read or I would not do my school work. Good on ya!
