Just found this random picture on my computer. I took this picture some time in 2012 (definitely before March, since I got a new phone sometime then) while I was at university while sitting in a study carrel in the university library…have no idea why. Why I took the picture that is. But you can tell I was all set for work, with my snacks on hand and everything. :P
The Lost Art of Reading by David L. Ulin - Joe Hill recommended this a while ago.
City of Bones by Cassandra Clare - I used to read a lot of YA fiction when I was in high school…until I exhausted what was available and interesting to me at the time, and moved on. However in the last few years YA has gained popularity, with new stories being published like crazy, and movie adaptions being announced every other day. So I thought I’d get back into YA starting with City of Bones.
The Power of Habit by Charles Duhigg - Ever since I graduated from university I’ve had this burning need to read non-fiction, to “expand my horizons”, to keep learning new things. Improve myself, I guess. The fact that I don’t have to do anymore heavy duty school reading on a schedule makes me feel free but also like I’m doing something wrong. That I should be reading/learning. Maybe I just fear turning stupid haha
Books! Got all these lovely books for a grand total of $5 at my university :D A couple of times a year my university holds a charity books sale where you pay $5 for a large reusable bag and then you fill it with as much books as you want/can. All the books are either too old for the library or donated by professors. I think all the money they make goes back to the university library. Is it sad that this is the one event I look forward to the most each year? haha :)
