I have fallen in love…

I  haven’t ever realized how much fun reading can be. I LOVE it! I am a little disappointed that I have been missing out on all the fun for most of my life. I don’t even know where it started. I just picked up a book, finished it, started on a new book an finished it…and now I am looking for some suggestions. This whole reading thing is new to me. It’s exciting. I’ve never had the urge in my life to read, but something changed. I am required to read one book for my mission prep class. I bought all three of the options and I am half way done with the first one. Sure it isn’t the most interesting read, but I think it has some great lessons in it. I enjoy reading just about anything. Crazy. I never thought I would be one of those reading type people.

I am slowly getting better at reading. Which I have found useful when there is a large reading assignment for classes. Science will always be a difficult read, but I don’t get tired of reading as easily.What a great thing to love. Life is great… new hobbies are great… and I like to read, who would have thought?


  1. welcome to the club. i can't imagine life without the love of reading. "the book thief" is a recent book i loved.

  2. i love the feeling of falling in love with reading. it's something i definitely miss among the craziness of my life. i should do it more.

  3. "The Book Thief" is good. Slow starter. Good read.

    If you haven't already, read "The Peacegiver." Excellent.

    And whenever you need another book to read just let me know. Like others in the family, we're heavy-duty readers over here. And between Lauren and me we have an (ahem) eclectic collection of books (I sometimes read odd stuff).

  4. I have actually heard really good things about the peace giver as well. I've only read a few pages myself but I already have the book anytime you would like to borrow it! :)
