Growing up, I always enjoyed reading an assortment of books purely for enjoyment. As I got older, I was assigned much more reading for school so reading for fun unfortunately was not a priority. Recently, I have tried to read books that I enjoy before bed instead of watching TV. I find that it is much more relaxing, and I have an easier time falling asleep. The book that I am currently reading is called Kasher in the Rye: The True Tale of a White Boy from Oakland Who Became a Drug Addict, Criminal, Mental Patient, and Then Turned 16 by Moshe Kasher. So far it is really hilarious and entertaining, and is a good change of pace from my rather “dry” assigned reading. Now that I am writing so much in my classes, it is interesting to read different kinds of books to take note of unique styles and tones. Not only is reading fun, but it is also extremely important when focusing on my own writing. I am curious what the last book (or current book) that you are reading for fun is? If you need an excuse to get a book for sheer enjoyment, “Cyber Monday” is tomorrow and the deals on Amazon.com may be hard to pass up!
