When I was younger, I used to read a lot. I was the nerd who would check out 10+ books at a time from the library. Unfortunately, as I got older, I read less and less until I just stopped reading for fun. There was too much homework and assigned reading from school that I didn’t even enjoy reading anymore.
It wasn’t until recently that I tried to get back into it. I have my on and off phases. Sometimes I spend a lot of time reading and get through a few books quickly, and then some periods I don’t read any books at all. At the moment, these are the books I’m reading or planning to read.
- Last finished: The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo (Stieg Larsson) – The plot seemed really interesting and mysterious, so I finally tried it. I loved it, which is why…
- Next up: The Girl Who Played With Fire (Stieg Larsson) – …the next book in the series is also next on my reading list. I’ve already bought the 3rd one as well.
- Last finished: The Photographer’s Eye (Michael Freeman) – A book on composition, which helped me greatly. It made me see my process and photos in a new way.
- Next up: Mastering Digital Flash Photography (Chris George) – I’m pretty clueless when it comes to flash photography and lighting equipment. So far, this has been a decent introduction to it.
- Last finished: Don’t Make Me Think (Steve Krug) – A short and easy read, but it brings up a lot of good points. Sometimes common sense doesn’t sink in until someone spells it out for you.
- Next up: Letting Go of the Words (Janice (Ginny) Redish) – Many people don’t realize that writing for the web should be different than writing for anything else. While I have a general idea, I wanted to learn more.
- Next up: The Costume Technician’s Handbook (Rosemary Ingham, Liz Covey) – This seems to be recommended among costume makers. I’m hoping to learn a lot from it.
And I’m always looking for more books to add to the list, so if you have recommends, I’m listening! As for the types I’m most interested in, it’s mystery books, usually crime/murder mysteries. I am also looking for more good informative books related to my hobbies :3
