Books, GoodReads, and Why I’m Still Awake

Aight, peeps, here’s the lowdown, the skinny, the 411, the…you know, whatever.

All of a sudden, I have insomnia all the freakin’ time. I wake up the same time every morning (9am), but it seems like I can’t get to sleep any time before 3am.

What do I do with all this time?

Besides obsessively changing my web page theme in an attempt to find something that doesn’t make me gag; besides listening to hours of New Age music on Pandora; besides applying droplets to my eyes because of all these backlit screens…

I read.

A lot.

Like, 13 books in the last 17 days. That’s non-fiction, adult, YA (no picture books).

What does that mean for you?

I don’t always review books, but, when I do, it’s because I liked them.

I can’t review everything. But, trust me, if I make it through the whole book, that means I liked it.

So, for those of you interested in following my eccentric/eclectic tastes, I’ve decided to be a good little social networker and keep my GoodReads profile updated.

Is this some sort of underhanded, sneaky way of encouraging people to read?

Yes.

But, it’s also some sort of underhanded, sneaky way of encouraging people to talk about books, consider what they like, and find more books that they will like just as much.

Heck, if you see something on my list and trust me for a recommendation, I’ll tell you what I thought.

In private. Because I just might know the author who wrote it :/

Stay thirsty, my friends.
