It's very easy for me to get lost in a good book - to the point where I can't quite turn off the light to sleep at night, or I tell my children to go play in the street for a bit, or dinner gets made an hour late! Reading is a sanctuary to me, it's a place where anything can happen, and where I can be anyone.
Reading is the reason I write!
This weekend at the ALA Midwinter Conference I got several dozen ARCs for YA and Middle Grade (some of them are pictured below). I'll be doing reviews here and on a couple of other blogs (which means giveaways too!) But it's definitely a little daunting to look at the stack and try to figure out what to read first. I have a feeling my family won't be seeing much of me for the next few weeks (or months)!
Is reading a writing sanctuary for you?
