It’s Just Not Possible…

If such a thing were possible… I’d swear I read too much! — But anyone with a love for reading knows better than that… there is no such thing as reading too much.

I go through these phases where I do one of two things, I either write all the time or read all the time. — Lately I’ve barely written a thing, except the occasional idea I jot down or grocery lists, lol. Which of course means I’ve been reading books like a mad woman!

I can’t count the exact number, but I can recall the characters & the stories. I can’t keep track of the time that has gone by, but I can remember how amazing it was to get lost in another world. I can’t figure up just how much money I’ve spent, but I know exactly how much happiness I’ve found. — Crazy isn’t it, that something so small can do such big things! 🙂

Which is pretty much why I haven’t blogged in what has to be weeks. I’ve spent most of my spare time reading. I literally just finished a book & started on another one when I realized, wait a minute… It’s been a while since I’ve bothered to write a word. What I have desired the most lately has been to read, read and read some more! 🙂 So I thought I’d take a minute to do a little writing.

I tell you what though, if someone said to me tomorrow that I could never read another book for as long as I live… Quiet, sweet, shy, & terribly passive Heather would most certainly show out, Lol! It’s in there, deep down inside of me. — The ability to show out, though it is a rare thing, the world would see it should anyone ever try to take books away from me.

I don’t know how people don’t love it. Nothing compares to it. It is it’s own magical thing… getting lost in the heart of books. I can’t fathom a world without them. One thing I do know though, is that I am so very grateful that I was blessed with a love for reading & writing!

So I say you should all go read a book… live a little, waste a little time, enjoy yourself, & be happy! 🙂

As Always,
Heather!

Books, Books, & More Books

As I was all cuddled up & comfy with a good book tonight, I thought to myself… this is the life. I have loved to read ever since I was in the 5th grade. I didn’t like it nearly as much before then. I guess I hadn’t found a love for it just yet. Then one day I went to my little school library & checked out my very first Hardy Boys book. — That was when I fell in love. — After that, I went to the library every time I turned around & before the year was even up I had read all the Hardy Boys books they had, (and they had a lot.) 

When I checked that book out it was because I had to read a certain amount of books a month. It was mandatory. I had no idea that I would come to find so much joy in reading when I picked that book. It was the first book that I ever read nonstop without putting down. Little did I know, it was the beginning of an addiction that would stay with me for life. — I’ve been reading book after book ever since then. 

I found happiness, joy, & entertainment in reading. Somewhere deep within my soul a passion was sparked. That passion is still there today. — I read a lot. My husband calls it my expensive hobby, and I think sometimes, wishes I’d find a new one, lol. 🙂 If I’m not writing, I can almost guarantee that I’m reading. I pick up a book and I don’t want to stop until I’ve read the entire thing. When it’s over I’m thinking, Geez I should have slowed down… because then I’m not ready for it to be over. —

Books are simply amazing. They’re like movies, only way better. I can’t imagine life without books. I don’t even want to try. 

This is why every single moment in life is significant whether we realize it at the time or not. — You think little 11 year old Heather had any idea that day in the school library that the book she picked would change the course of her life? — Of course not. I had to check one out, I picked one, I started reading, and then magic happened. I had no way of knowing how much I would come to love reading. — I’m just so very glad that I picked that book, that day. 🙂

So… You guys go read a book. & Enjoy it! 🙂
