“Here’s to books, the cheapest vacation you can buy.”
— Charlaine Harris
I am a voracious reader (365 books in 2011 alone), and nearly all my free time is, therefore, spent reading because, “books [are] the cheapest vacation you can buy,” as Charlaine Harris once said. Oh, how true that is!
I am currently working on a list of review requests, with over 150 books on it, as well as reading books from my shelves at home and school. While one might think that this would keep me extremely busy, and it does, I still have lots of time for all the demands of my job (and there are a lot), to socialize, watch movies, etc., though reading is indeed my favorite pastime. I have found that I get a little cranky if I don’t have a chance to read for pleasure at some point during the day, but as you can denote, I tend to become wrapped up in my books and tend to read them in one sitting, hence, a book a day.
And, in line with the FTC Guidelines, I just want to put it out there that I am not paid to review books. I purchase most of my own reading material, unless an author or publisher sends me a free copy of their book in exchange for an honest review. Books that I receive without purchase are disclosed at the bottom of the review. Books I have bought myself have, in the past, had no disclosure, but will in the future.
**********I am NOT ACCEPTING REVIEW REQUESTS AT THIS TIME. I am VERY backed up and need to work on my current pile before I resume accepting requests. **********
