Reading Catch-22...... This book may be the first book I finish that's not required in school...
How can you not love to read? I can't get enough of reading, especially when its a good book. So much so that I often got caught reading during school, mostly in boring old Math class. My mom and dad had to literally set forth a ground rule that I couldn't do pleasure reading until after my homework was done.
Now that I am out of school, I can read all I want. The next book I plan on reading is James Patterson's newest book, "Zoo", whenever I feel like downloading it to my kindle fire, but for now, I am rereading "Jurassic Park" by the late Micheal Crichton, for like the umpteenth time.
I love love LOVE that book. I had a softcover copy of it from like, 1995, that was originally my big brother's, but when he moved out I commandeered it for my own reading pleasure. The first time I read it, back when I was 10-11, it took me about a month to get through and I loved every bit of it. Sure the techno babble was a little lost on me back then, but I managed through it just fine.
Last I saw of that copy, it was tattered and torn, taped back together after being torn apart by a dog I used to have but has since passed on (from unrelated causes), and well read. Its since gone on to some second hand store, like Goodwill or something, to give someone else the pleasure of reading it, or the trash. I forget. Mom was in charge, so I am leaning towards the latter as its final destination.
Anyways, I had a nostalgic streak and wanted to read it again so I downloaded it to my kindle fire and am working my way through it again.
Ah the memories.
