Slice of Life #20


I love reading. If you told me I could do absolutely anything I want for an entire day, I would choose reading. I love sitting on my couch, with its chaise lounge, stretching out with a good book.

I have spent the majority of today reading the conclusion to my favorite trilogy, The Sweet Far Thing (The Gemma Doyle Trilogy), by Libba Bray. Hours have flown by as I have delved deeper into this almost-800 page tome. I have had it on my nightstand for over a month, but I held off on reading it until spring break, when I knew I would be able to give it the attention it deserved. How right I was! I have been pulled into Gemma’s world and am almost done with the book.

Granted, I haven’t left my house yet today. But who needs to leave when you have a good book?

  1. Gosh
    800 page book.
    I can’t imagine the time.
    I still have Harry Potter (last volume) by the bedstand and now I await summer.
    But I, too, could sit, reading all day.
    And then, I would write.

  2. Same here. Too bad this computer gets in the way of all day reading. I have to keep your image strong in my mind and follow your lead, Denise.

  3. Oh so right: who need to leave the house when there’s good reading to be done! Congratulations on giving yourself that lovely gift!
