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.

The Year of Reading Dangerously: How Fifty Great Books (and Two Not-So-Great Ones) Saved My Life

The Year of Reading Dangerously: How Fifty Great Books (and Two Not-So-Great Ones) Saved My Life - Andy Miller A fun life-in-books memoir with a large dose of humor that tends to stray away from literary criticism in order to tell stories about life and interconnected themes in the books being read. I'm glad I read it as a nice palate cleanser and as a way of reading more about book nerds even if it wasn't totally earth shattering.
