Some Things Never Change

So I was filling out a Rafflecopter for a giveaway and one of the questions they asked me was what was my favorite thing to do during the summer. I have to say reading is my favorite. I had to think about it for a bit but really, it is. I spend spring and fall reading 2 or more textbooks at a time and am all too glad to give them up when summer comes around. Ok, I know what you might be thinking. "Why on earth would you want to read more?" Well, I have always loved reading. I contribute my love of books to my need of glasses to this day. When I was younger and sharing a room with my OLDER sister I read with the lights off and barely a bit of moonlight coming through the window. Notice where I capped the word older? Yes, this explains the lights out part. It was her way or no way. In her eyes it was her bedroom and she was tolerating me in it. (We get along wonderful these days since we don't have to share a room or a house! Haha) So anyway, this was what I did. I read everything I could get my hands on. I remember in elementary school there was this book fair that came around once a year. Oh, man! You talk about excited! I had this little paper that contained a list of all the books that would be there and I would take it home and circle then re-circle all the books that I dreamed I would get. In the end, I usually walked away with about 2-3 books out of the many I picked but I was pretty happy to get them. Fast-forward to today, I still love books, of course. This time however, they accumulate on my kindle and kindle iPhone app and my ever-growing list of books I want to read are safely tucked away on my Amazon list in cyberland.

Some things never change.
