technically, this should be “music monday” but i’ve been quite fascinated by several books lately so i thought i’d throw in a little something extra.
i’ve always loved to read. in elementary school, my idea of playing outside was to take a book and sit on the front porch steps. i even stole $2 from my parents to buy the latest “babysitter’s club” book. my punishment? no buying books for 2 months. i was a self-proclaimed nerd. “the babysitter’s club” aside, i love how books have a way of offering escape, expanding our worldview and imaginations – whether it be dr. seuss, chaim potok, c.s. lewis or dostoevsky.
my literature world has expanded, but i don’t consider myself above reading a book from the young adult section. i’ve read pretty much read every english book i can get my hands on at the library, so i’ve begun ordering books from other libraries. the latest treasure: “The Hunger Games” trilogy by Suzanne Collins. love. it. the books grapple age-old subjects such as the worth and quality of life, love and war. there are reviews and plot lines of the books all over the internet, so i won’t add to the clutter.
but if you’re looking for an easy read full of action and imagination, “the hunger games” trilogy is worth a shot.
