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.

Letter to a Future Lover: Marginalia, Errata, Secrets, Inscriptions, and Other Ephemera Found in Libraries

Letter to a Future Lover: Marginalia, Errata, Secrets, Inscriptions, and Other Ephemera Found in Libraries - Ander Monson A collection of essays inspired by things written in library books (and apparently first distributed to readers by putting copies of the essay in the book they were inspired by...makes me wonder if any are still there). The topics are broadly ranging and the examination of the interaction between readers and text, especially between readers who leave marginalia in books for other readers to find, and overall made for a nice meditation on human/book interaction and fun essays to read.
