Eat an Apple, Read a Book

I think I am the only person who can spend hours at a time in a library or bookstore weighing my options for books. I love to read. I've always wanted to be in a book club, but I haven't seemed to connect with people with the same interest. Therefore, I've come up with my own “Summer Reading," but I know it'll probably take me until next year to finish. To some, it may seem uninteresting to spend an abundance of time reading a book during feel-good weather. To me, there is nothing more beautiful than traveling and falling knee-deep into a pool of words and imagery. AND now that I have an amazing Kindle, I don't have to make time to go to the library or bookstore. I can do it all from home without any book due dates and limitations. If you'd like to join me, feel free to do so.
