I've always been a book nerd. I was that 9 year old kid who carried my copy of Boxcar Children or Nancy Drew or Babysitters Club with me everywhere, reading while at restaurants, riding in the car, or before bedtime, while all the normal kids were playing video games or running around outside or joining a little league team.
And to this day, I still love books.
I'm currently reading on a kindle, which I love and would recommend to anyone. While it can get pricey, buying books for it, it doesn't have to be. Look at the free books, watch for sales, and check out websites that facilitate kindle book lending.
I think it'll be fun at the end of the year to know exactly how many books I've read, so I'm going to keep a list that I'll update often.
(well, hopefully it'll be often, because that will indicate I've been reading lots, which is my plan )
(oh, and if some of the titles seem kind of obscure, it's because amazon offers an ever-changing list of free books for the kindle.... and there's a possibility I'm a sucker for free things, mmkay? Don't judge!)
