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.

"To Read" October 18 2013

I am swamped with good books to read next now that I've finished four books in the last week. I'm way behind on Proust, I know, but there are so many nice books just waiting to be picked up. 


I'm especially excited for I am Malala. I followed her story extensively last fall and am very much looking forward to reading what she has to say, especially after her Daily Show interview. It's also a signed edition so I'm excited about it as a book collector as well.
