I am lucky that I have the luxury of enjoying books to my delight. However, there are times when I am overloaded with elements of life – work, school, and family take precedence over reading for leisure. This is one of those times. Along with working a full-time job, I am taking two evening courses. I am out of practice when it comes to studying. Reading a novel, I am great at; reading a textbook is another story. I take pride in the skill that I have to break down what I read to retain the importance of the content. This process will take me longer than it would to read a Dean Koontz thriller but I know that it is beneficial for me in the long run. As these courses come to close end, I have read and reread the chapters of my textbooks countless of times and had numerous cups of tea to help keep me awake. I am looking forward to the end when my reward will be the latest thriller by Linda Howard and a nice fruity tea from Teavana. Click below links for details on book (author) and tea.
