Reading Habits:
I’ve been a hardcore reader since day one. There are photos of me at age two or three, carrying stacks of books or sitting on the couch next to a huge pile. This has never changed. I’m one of those people that many might consider crazy; I read 10-15 books at once and have absolutely no problem differentiating between the books I’m reading. I love having options for any mood I might be in, so I’m always reading something funny, something sad, something suspenseful, and something nonfiction that will enlighten me, all at once. Sometimes I get overwhelmed by books, but I think that’s a good thing. I dream of being a literary editor/publisher/agent after I graduate college this year.
