I have this addiction

It’s an addition to books and magazines. I love to read, to get lost in a story is heaven. To learn about myself from books is the best, even if they are fiction books. I also have a pile of magazines at home I haven’t read yet. These are magazines that are 3 months old and they’re sitting in a pile just waiting for me.

I’ve always been a reader. I remember one of my favorite books when I was little was ‘Are You My Mother?’ I would read it with my mom. As I got a little older it switched to Baby Sitter Club and Judy Bloom books, and I can’t forget ‘Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing’, how could you not love Fudge? Then I expanded to Sweet Valley High and Lurlene McDaniel. I was slowly growing up with my books. I have to tell you my shock reading my first Sandra Brown book. I didn’t realize it would get that….detailed. If you’ve read her books you can probably understand, I think I was a freshman in high school at the time. I was introduced to Harry Potter by Rosie O’Donnel actually. I was wondering around Media Play around Thanksgiving of 1999 trying to find something to take with me to Toronto and decided to try out the boy wizard. Needless to say I had the other 2 books very quickly. Now my favorite authors include Nora Roberts, Sophie Kinsella, Meg Cabot and all those other chick lit authors. I’ll try almost anything, not too big into sci-fi.

Now onto magazines. At the beginning of the year I subscribed to 3 magazines, CK, SS and Disney Magazine. I’ve since added Real Simple, Oprah, People, Scrapbooks, Etc and Papercuts. I just read my first ‘How’ and loved it. Am also a fan of ‘Body and Soul’ and ‘Shop’. I love going in Barnes and Noble and browsing the magazines and looking at ones that catch my eye, most of the time they come home with me.
