The one about the pile 'o books


For some reason I really got back into reading after I read Twilight a few years back. I got to the end of that book and just keep going. I now have a trail of books that I have read. I can't get enough reading.
Thank-goodness for the many Amazon GCs I received for my birthday and Christmas this past month! So hard not to blow it all at once, ya know?

Also, my friend Amanda turned me on to paperbackswap a couple of years ago and I have traded so many books thru that site.

Like my friend Amy Grendell, I am hooked on YA novels. We both seem to read the same stuff. At the same time I have been obsessed with Chernobyl. I remember when that happened when I was in 11th grade and it scared me. I recently saw the Destination Truth team go in into Pripyat a few months ago and I have been hooked on it ever since. It is terrifying and interesting at the same time. I had three books going on Chernobyl and have finished all but one.

If you are on Goodreads, come be my friend and we can recommend books to one another. :)

You ought to check out Half.com where you can buy books really cheap, and PaperBackSwap.com where you can trade books for just the cost of shipping. You'll save a ton of money on either site!
