100

Last night I finished my 100th book of 2008.

I love reading. It's like breathing to me. It's how I unwind, how I while away time, how I survive travel, how I learn. It's such a part of me and my life.

I rarely go anywhere without a book. I tell people all the time what I'm reading. I ask them what they read.

If I hadn't met so many people like me, I'd think I was weird. But there are a plethora of bookish people in this world, and I'm so proud to be a book lovin' girl.

I'll leave you with one of my very favorite quotations.

"Until I feared I would lose it, I never loved to read. One does not love breathing."
~Harper Lee~

PS: To meet my personal reading goal for the year, I only need to read 20 more books. It's still the beginning of October. There's plenty of time.

I'm so glad you posted this...I love to read but unfortunately I still feel considered "weird" in my little world (IRL). But...good to know there are so many others who "breathe" it! :o)
