Sometimes life gets in the way of healthy reading habits. Currently my reading takes place during short periods of time at regular intervals, with the occasional binge-read for hours when a quiet moment presents itself. At work I have two mandatory breaks of fifteen minutes each, plus a half hour lunch period. And at night before going to bed I often unwind with a classic novel or Kindle book. However, nothing quite replaces the feeling of settling deep down into a comfy chair and allowing oneself to sink into a different world constructed purely of words and one's own imagination.
So, what am I currently reading?
- The Rivals of Sherlock Holmes: A Collection of Victorian Detective Tales, an omnibus of mystery short stories written by contemporaries of Arthur Conan Doyle.
- Hans Brinker, or, The Silver Skates by Mary Mapes Dodge. A novel my mom read to me as a kid, I finally decided to re-read it.
*This will obviously be updated as I finish books and start others.
