Confession: I am always reading at least one book, pretty much at all times. I'm not even that fast of a reader. But I carry books with me, and actually read in those few moments of empty time. In lines, and well, it gets almost embarrassing all the situations that I've cracked open a book. I fall in love with characters. When I'm reading a book, I'm there; when I'm not reading, a lot of times I'm still influenced by my current book. I'm seeing my own situation from a new angle. As much as I love books at the time, I could hardly tell you about some book that had impacted me without a few plot hints. I simply keep that relationship slot that a book has filled to one book at a time.
