Behold, the thing that reads a lot.6:42 PM
Ever since I started carrying a purse or a backpack with me, I've paired a book with it. As I have mentioned before on the blog, reading is one of my passions. I seriously will read anything but I thought I would share a little bit of my literary life here on the blog since I have not done a proper book review in months.
One of my downfalls is that I can't read one thing at a time, unless it is for school, and even then I rarely read just one assignment at a time. To add a little visual aide, here are some snapshots of my daily reading routine. Pictured above is my purse-book, the book I bring to work and read on my lunch-break, the book I open up while waiting in a long line and even sometimes in the car if Kyle is driving.
Two things you will always find on top of my gym bag, a pair of flip-flops and a book. I used to just read during my cool-downs on the bike but now I read on the treadmill, at a moderate speed with a high incline. I still manage to build up a sweat and that hour goes by so much faster when I am reading instead of just starting at the TV.
I also indulge in magazines, but really, who doesn't? I started subscribing to Nylon a little over a year ago and I love it. I love the music sections, the random features, and of course the fashion. I even find some of the advertising inspirational, some of the ideas these people come up with are so crazy! I also renew Kyle's subscription to National Geographic as part of his birthday present every year but I love to paw through it when it comes in the mail. My Great Uncle Lenny actually gave me a huge stack of some old issues when I was in elementary school and I loved them. We still have most of them actually, and Kyle still collects the maps that occasionally come with them.
I also have a bed-book! I try to get about 15 minutes in every night to read and help me transition into sleep (which I've heard is exactly what you are not supposed to do) but lately I have been packing so much into my day that I tend to face-plant into the pillow each night.
I also tend to do a lot of reading for school, we are currently reading Othello and Death of a Salesman. I also like to read the Detroit Free Press and The New York times online on lunch breaks and of course I read a lot of blogs. So, what's on your night stand?
