On An Island


Sometimes I have too many wonderful books to read. So much so in fact that I may try to rush through a book just so I can get to run that I THINK is greener in order to make myself slow down I think of myself stranded on an island and I only had sooo many books with me.

I don't have a desire to read slow. I jusactually tend to enjoy the page turners more anyway. That's actually how I know I really am loving a story.

  2. I just read to enjoy and when I become engrossed in a book that means I'm loving it and will be sad when it's over. But the beauty is that there's another book waiting its turn to bring me into the fold.
