I swear reading really does help your vocab and it saddens me when people dismiss it. I get that it's not fun to read school assignments that you have no interest in but for you to tell me you only read magazines or what you see on your computer screen makes me worry about the future state of our country. I'd much rather force a book into my kid's hand than a video game.
Anywho. . .
These are some books that I enjoyed back when I use to read because right now I'm one of those people who only has time to read magazines.
1. The Five People You Meet in Heaven by Mitch Albom - so freakin' good! Another thing in the world that made me cry.
2. My Sister's Keeper by Jodi Picoult- Read the book, the movie does NOT do it justice.
3. Addicted by Zane - This book? THIS book was what made me realize that you didn't need to watch a movie to be completely entertained. There's a lot of sexual things (clearly - it's Zane), but the plot is actually really good once you get past that.
4. The Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold - Another one you should really read the book on. Don't just watch the movie.
