What I Happen to Be Reading At the Moment

"A thirteen-year-old is a kaleidoscope of different personalities, if not in most ways a mere figment of her own imagination. At that age, what and who you are depends largely on what book you happen to be reading at the moment.”


While not 13 anymore, the desire to read almost anything and everything in order to read for fun and for experience is still around. I'm currently working on my PhD in a physical science, but I love to read and books are one of my non-science hobbies.


Valencia - Michelle Tea Right before my written comps, I went to see Michelle Tea read at Antigone Books, in Tucson. I had read [b:How to Grow Up|22521549|How to Grow Up|Michelle Tea|https://d.gr-assets.com/books/1415585583s/22521549.jpg|41965876] and commented to her how it made me feel better about being an adult, and she suggested Valencia for when I didn't want to feel like one. It was great, a series of insane stories of youth and debauchery, and getting stranded in the desert outside of Tucson.
