The Ultimate Literati Trick: Open A Book & Read It

Somebody ScreamI had to share my book list with the world this morning. Though my life is super busy as a graduate student (I’m a future librarian check out my library blog.), dog-owner, literary arts advocate, and my other titles that I hold dear to my heart, I love to read books!

Yes, it is almost May and I have read like it is going out of style. Have you heard about Amazon.com purchasing Goodreads? They say it’s the best merger since sliced bread in the 21st century. I found it to be rather dismal news. Amazon owns everything in regard to books and e-publishing these days. I’ve challenged myself to read 10 books this year (outside of school, outside of journalism, outside of creative writing, and outside of life’s bullshit)

I buy hardback and paperbacks on the regular, and I do adore my Kindle Fire… I just don’t have the time to turn on the device when I can flip a page (… love the printed pages vs. the tablet keys). Okay, so be brave with me and delve in to some of these books. I would love your reaction. The purpose of this article again is to trick you in to reading a book. Let me know if it works.
