Did I mention that I got a bag full of free books today (and learned, in the process, that I am not the only person who reuses those nifty little Starbucks bags)?
There are three rules I have when it comes to reading:
1) Read something every day, even if it’s just a blog entry, an article in a magazine, or a chapter of whatever book is in the bathroom.
2) Read a little bit of everything: comedy, drama, chick-lit, serious fiction, biographies, non-fiction…it’s all good, and limiting yourself never is.
3) Never, ever turn down free books.
The unwritten fourth rule of books is to share what you read – either by passing books along to others or writing reviews. The bag I got from Deb this afternoon comes with the requirement that most be reviewed for All Things Girl, either the ‘zine or the blog, and I’m really excited about doing so.
Mmm books. One of my faves was passed onto me by Deb, it’s even a movie now. . . I can’t think of the title. I hate forgettful memories!! My faves are chick lit & romance & general fiction as long as it isn’t horrific/suspensful/too overly sad. haha
Free books are lovely. I need to mix it up a lot for tone and density of book for my interest to stay high…
Books are great, free books are even better.
I’m so thankful to see your “reading” philosophy. I can’t stand it when people say “Oh, I don’t read…” or “I only read sci-fi/Danielle Steel/Nicholas Sparks/Harry Potter or whatever.”
Kudos to you
