After several months of intensive reading + studying, I'm so.grateful. to have the chance to read for fun. College has made me enjoy reading far more than I ever have but has also made me a lot more prone to buying books.....and a lot of them....oopsie.  Oh well. Can't complain. Books make life just a smidgen more delightful, especially when you can talk your brother into setting up a hammock in the backyard. Mmmm. Bliss. 

What books are you burring your nose into this summer?

    1. Mmm. Wonderful. Do you read these sorts of books aloud to Rosamund? I've been thinking that I should dedicate a couple weeks to revisiting childhood favorites such as Montgomery. It's been too long since I've picked up many of the books that I love years ago.

      Enjoy your reading list. ♥

    1. Hey sofia! Everyone I know who has read Frankl's book really loved it which is why I feel so strange for not being that impressed. Granted, I was reading it for my intro to philosophy class and I was mostly just peeved that we were reading a psychology book when we could've been reading more Aristotle or Aquinas...so I feel a little cheated...that's not a great reason for not liking a book, but that's part of the equation.

      Anyway, it was okay, but by no means exemplary in my opinion. Perhaps I'm missing something and it deserves another chance. We'll see. :)
