I Always Find Time to Read

Right now I’m reading several books: Julie and Julia by Julie Powell, a biography of Patricia Highsmith, Punching In by Alex Frankel, and several books on writing for magazines. I just love to read.

Right now I don’t know if I’m going to be laid off from my day job. I’m severely stressed from worrying. I won’t find out until early March if my job is going to be part-time or if I will get a severance package. I come home crying from the stress. Reading helps me to relax and get away from my troubles. I’d love to read every book in the world!

  1. Wow, I hope the job thing works out! So glad you can read to relax, the really crazy thing is when I am stressed I just can't seem to get into a book, which is so frustrating. I am enjoying reading your blog very much. Wishing you all the best.

  2. Thank you so much! I have had many stressful moments over the last few years and yet somehow I can always escape from the world with a good book. Thank you for visiting my blog. I just visited your blog, "The Genteel Arsenal", and found it very interesting. I plan to keep reading it and adding it to my blog list under "Reading". Thanks again!
