I love reading, I always have, and I think a huge part of my writing comes from reading. Right now I'm reading Jellicoe Road by... someone. It's fantastic so far. I'm a little confused, but I think that my confusion will be resolved eventually.

Those are just the ones that I'm thinking of right now. There's half a billion others I want to read, not to mention the ones I want to re-read.

But the problem isn't that I love to read, it's that there are too many good books out there. I'm bound to miss a few... Rats. Maybe I'll be like Sheldon from Big Bang Theory and turn myself into a robot when the technology becomes available, so I can read all of the books in the world. Wouldn't that be fantastic?

Right now I have to go read some Pre-Calc word problems. Joy.
