This habit started getting really bad in college. After an intervention and support from friends and family, I got my reading under control.
Like my friend Christie, when it comes to buying books, I laugh and think to myself, "No thanks moderation, no thanks."
I have been on a true crime reading spree the last 2 weeks. A couple friends have asked for some good book suggestions, so if you want some fascinating summer reads, check out these books:
Dugard was kidnapped in 1991 at age 11. She was taken by a pedophile psychopath and his crazy wife. She was captive over 18 years. She had two kids with her captor. She was able to escape in 2009.
This book is well researched and provides facts surrounding the case.
Jaycee Dugard also wrote a book herself to share her personal account of her years as a prisoner. Her ability to look at the positive side of life is moving. She forces you to reconsider your perspective on your own life. Fascinating.
This one is about the a girl who was locked in a specially built prison in the cellar. Her DAD locked her down there for 24 years. He raped her and fathered her 7 kids. Sick but intensely captivating.
I read these in two days. They are that grossly fascinating.
OK, fine. I admit it. Within those two days I also read:
P.S.S. Taking pictures with your food every day is the new "Classy".
