Reading and Writing Is Living

I used to wonder how I would react to true tragedy.

As a Type A creative with a Gemini star sign and enough anxiety to power the grid at least for a day, I wondered this probably more than I should. But the answer was always the same–I would read my way through. I would write my way out.

It turns out, I was right.

What’s on Your Shelf?

My favorite genre is binge reading stories from the library, spending all day in bed swearing I’ll stop after one more chapter, developing massive, unhealthy crushes on fictional characters. My favorite genre is whatever I can get my hands on.

Something to Read and Something to Write

I cannot deny that it makes me feel safe, connected and secure. And not just because I can call or navigate my way out of nearly any situation. Nope, because I always have a journal and I always have a book. 

My Favorite Book Medium (Is the One I Have)

I think that the ongoing debate of pitting e-books and print books and audiobooks against each other in some fight to the death misses the point of reading entirely.

Which is why I’m not going to pick a favorite, but tell you a little about why I love each one.
