Want a Raspberry?

I’ve never been all that good at reviewing books. Not verbally, at least. I can tell what I like and what I don’t like, but these feel-good moments and cringe-worthy moments come to me more often as feelings, and I’ve never been good at describing my feelings.

I used to be a heavier reader than I have been the last few years. College is mostly to blame for that — when you’re trying to pass all of your classes, who has time for fun reading? I sure felt like I didn’t. I’ve never regretted letting myself have the time to finish my homework, of course, but I do wish that I had been able to make more time for fun reading.

Though I still have almost two full years of my master’s degree left to complete, I’m going to change that now. I’m a future librarian — my future degree says so. Why shouldn’t I be able to read fun books while going to school?

In addition to the Bookout app, this blog is a tool for helping me read more regularly. My usage of the app is to develop a better, more regular reading habit; my usage of this blog is to help me reflect on my reading more than I have been in the past.

I’m not sure how often I’ll be posting here just yet because I’m still figuring out my new reading schedule, but in the meantime please enjoy the raspberries. Thank you for stopping by!
