Reading Habits:
I am a self-professed word nerd. I believe reading is an essential tool for escape, education, and pure entertainment, so I try to read every chance I get. Life gets crazy and time is precious, so what better way to spend that time than to read? At the risk of sounding slightly over-dramatic, reading is like oxygen for me. As long as I am able to read a page—just breathe in a bit of fresh literature—each day, I’m happy!
