So remember that time I posted a 2019 read list and then went out and bought a stack of new books the week after? Because I do T_T. Barnes and Noble got me with their #bookhaul emails and, all my money later, I’m staring at a stack of brand new books. If this is how Pisces season is going to treat me only four days in, I’m terrified to see what the end of the month looks like.
Good job, marketing department at B&N.
I love books, but I’m a notoriously slow reader. If you give me eight solid hours of reading time, I’ll still only get to the first 150 pages, tops. This is because I read for fun and to learn craft. The latter means that I spend a lot of time writing notes and/or color-coding sticky tabs. The former means that I’ll stop reading a book for a moment to have a head argument with a character (why did you do the thing you did? When did that seem like a good idea? Why are you like this?)
