There is something odd about my life right now.
My BFF at work asked me what I was reading these days, and after thinking about it for a few moments, I had to respond with "nothing."
He immediately asked me if I was feeling OK.
That was a valid question, as he knows that I am always reading something, and for a woman who once happily read 100 books in less than a year, it is probably a red flag of some sort.
So, I need to head out to the library this weekend and fix that.
I've always loved reading, and am glad that my love of reading wasn't killed by the mandatory reading we did in school and that I've been able to still find time for it in my daily life (until recently). I read a study the other day that reading can actually extend your life by up to two years. I don't believe that is true and it is more a study of correlation and not causation, but it was still an amusing read.
The point is to read because it is fun - something that I've worked hard to instill in my son and continue to work with him on. (Of course, when he reads he is learning things, too, but please don't tell him that.)
It's time to bring a few good books back into our lives.
