Congrats to John Green and his famous mole for his book Paper Towns being named the favorite book for teens this year by the ALA and YALSA (although the list was voted on entirely by teens)! Awesome, indeed! The top ten list was announced last week, with some other fantastic books making up the rest of the list, but I have to admit something here to you readers: I’ve only read 3 of the 10 books. I’m not going to tell you WHICH three, but suffice it to say, I’m pretty embarrassed. I’ve got some catching up to do!
I do have copies of four of the other books on the list, so I could read them relatively easily — if I could fit them in between reading partials and brilliant client manuscripts.
How do you deal with balancing your pleasure reading with work stuff, whatever that may be? When’s your favorite time to read? Lately, I’ve really been enjoying curling up with a book at bedtime, but when it’s good, it’s so hard to put it down and get to sleep, and I find myself staying up way too late to finish it.
Do you have a favorite reading spot? I’ll show you mine if you show me yours!
Also, if you haven’t already, I highly recommend watching the incredibly entertaining and yet totally bemusing video announcing the winner — and don’t freak out, but that link takes you to the World Wrestling Entertainment site. See above re: bemusing.
