In other news, I've posted a few times now about working wayyyyyy too much and not having down time to enjoy my personal hobbies and interests. I've been trying to make a focused effort to have a little bit of time every day for reading which, aside from my family and friends, is what I love more than anything else in life. I LOVE reading. I love reading more than I love the above video, and I really love that video!
A long while back, I had planned to update my reading habits regularly (see THIS post for more on my reading habits). I have failed big time in that regard, but I also haven't been reading as much as I was when I wrote that post. I'm working hard to remedy the situation and get back to serious reading on a daily basis.
Currently, I am reading two books, and I am enjoying both.
- Faceless Killers by Henning Mankell*—This is a Swedish mystery/crime novel and has been turned into both a Swedish television series and a Masterpiece Theater series. The book is fantastic, and I love both television series as well! One of the few book to film adaptations I have enjoyed and that seems to keep the integrity of the written work.
- Where We Belong by Emily Giffin*—This is a sweet story of an adopted young woman who is a bit lost in life and the woman go gave her up for adoption. The story is sweet, tender, and balanced. A bit on the side of chick-lit (ok, totally chick-lit), and I adore it.
